Early Education and Disease Prevention
Our goal for every child is to be cavity-free. We work directly with parents to form a team. We provide parents with the necessary tools to prevent oral disease at home. Early education and disease prevention is a central part of our mission to give each child a confident, disease-free smile. From proper brushing and flossing to understanding fluoride and a healthy diet, our dental team is available to help.
If your child gets a cavity, prompt treatment is necessary to prevent the damage from spreading and to keep the mouth healthy. With cavity treatment in Statesville, most cavities can be fixed with white, tooth-colored fillings. Large cavities may require a Stainless Steel Crown that protects the entire tooth from future disease. Each tooth, just like each child’s smile, is unique and receives a customized treatment plan.
Dental anxieties and trouble sitting still for lengthy dental appointments are common in young children. In conjunction with behavior guidance, some children are given nitrous oxide, or what you may know as laughing gas, to relax them for their dental treatment. We offer nitrous oxide in Statesville to safely, effectively treat children’s dental needs.
Outpatient General Anesthesia
We recommend outpatient general anesthesia in Statesville to treat apprehensive children, very young children, and children with special needs who would not do well under conscious sedation or I.V. sedation.
