At Dentistry at Hickory Flat, we enjoy seeing whole families here in our office for regular dental care, especially the youngest members. Children’s dentistry is a truly essential part of the work we do, and we strongly recommend that your loved one start attending regular checkup by the age of three or even before that. By introducing kids to the benefits of dentistry at a young age, it’s more likely that they’ll form a positive relationship with oral health care and maintain great habits for many years to come. Contact our Canton location today to schedule a first visit!
Dr. Joonkyu Hwang, Dr. Brian Lee and Dr. Katherine Lee strive to make every child’s dental appointment as enjoyable, comfortable, and educational as they possibly can. We’ll carefully check their growing smiles during each appointment, teach them out to effectively brush and floss, and treat any small areas of damage or decay as soon as they appear. Patients of all ages and their parents should be sure to make six-month checkups and cleanings a priority every single year.
Several kid-minded treatment options are also available here in Canton. For instance, professional fluoride is an important mineral that’s found in tap water and strengthens tooth enamel, but the rise in popularity of bottled water may mean that your son or daughter isn’t receiving the exposure they need. Our dentists and hygienists can integrate fluoride applications into regular appointments in order to reduce their risk of cavities and tooth decay. Preventing dental problems before they even get the chance to start is the key to lifelong oral health!
We also offer dental sealants, which can protect hard-to-reach teeth in the back of the mouth for plaque accumulation. These coatings are made from tough plastic, and they’re applied to the chewing surfaces of certain teeth in an easy and comfortable way. Better yet, they can last for multiple years and are always able to be reapplied easily if they’re lost for whatever reason.
