Children’s Dentistry

Choosing Your Child’s Dentist is Like Choosing Their Pediatrician

Dr. Filangeri understands this. Instilling good habits early, in an environment that’s comfortable and fun, is essential for a lifetime of good oral health.

Children are not able to brush well on their own. Because of this, it is important for parents to be involved in their child’s daily dental care. This ensures thorough cleaning as well as the development of proper dental habits.

Little kids tend to eat more often during the day (grazing). This results in a prolonged exposure to acid (every time you eat you make acid), which may cause more cavities.

A tooth that is not as clean as it should be will be exposed to acid when food and juice contact it. This acid often speeds up the development of cavities. The good news is that identifying poor dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a fluoride varnish to the mineralizing teeth, can significantly reduce the chance of your child having a cavity. Sealants may be recommended!

Calming Dental Fears

One of Dr. Filangeri’s goals is to make sure that this and future generations of children grows up WITHOUT a fear of the dental office. And according to our many satisfied parents, we are doing just that! Our office is a relaxed and happy place that children love to visit.

Your Child’s Dental Health is SO Important

Children’s dentistry is very different from adult dentistry. Many people had unpleasant experiences at the dentist when they were growing up. We want to ensure that sort of thing does not happen with our young patients. Dr. Filangeri is proud to have a staff to treat our younger patients with the understanding and compassion they need. Helping children form healthy oral habits and making their visits to the dentist a fun experience will be the foundation of a lifetime of dental health.

Dr. Filangeri believes good children’s dentistry is about more than just regular dental visits. Our job is to educate parents on good dental habits that lead to healthy smiles that last a lifetime.
