We believe in dentistry for the whole family, and that includes pediatric dentistry services for your smallest family members! Here at Greencastle Hometown Dental, we teach your children the proper way to take care of their teeth and that going to the dentist can be fun. We want to provide the best pediatric experience possible. An experience that is calm and inviting. Many parents choose to have our dentists treat their children because of their ability to deal with all types of child behavior and special needs.
Our office begins seeing children at a young age in order to promote a healthy foundation for great dental health right from the start, and we also work with parents on techniques and education so that they have the tools to succeed when it comes to oral care for their kids. When you visit your dentist in Greencastle, IN, you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed. Our team is caring and friendly and we work hard to create a welcoming and compassionate atmosphere. With years of experience in pediatric dentistry and working with kids, we’ve developed a wide array of pediatric services.
Your Child’s First Visit
At your child’s first visit, we will help familiarize them with our dental office so they feel completely comfortable. We will show them their teeth in the mirror, take them for a ride in the chair, and brush their teeth. That way, when it is time for their dental cleanings and other regular care to start, everything is familiar.
We believe great dental health begins with an excellent preventive routine. That is why we work with parents to create a successful home care regimen that includes brushing and flossing, avoiding sugary treats, and eating a good diet to promote healthy teeth and gums.
We complement excellent home care with routine examinations and cleaning appointments. If necessary, we can also offer additional preventive treatments such as fluoride and sealants to keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong.
Dental sealants are coatings that are applied to your child’s teeth to prevent decay. If your child is at high risk for decay or has particularly deep grooves in their teeth, we can apply dental sealants to keep food and bacteria from settling in those grooves where brushing and flossing cannot reach.
Dental sealants are less expensive than fillings and completely noninvasive. They can last for up to five years and are easily replaced once they wear off.
For most kids, some type of dental treatment eventually becomes necessary.
We are both compassionate and gentle in our approach to treating children. We know how important it is to make sure they are comfortable and do not experience dental anxiety. That is why when we treat children, we speak to them in terms they will understand and let them know what we will be doing. That way, their treatment is more effective and less scary.
