Harris County Pediatric Dentist
At Hamilton Family Dentistry, we are passionate about offering the highest quality care for every member of your family, and that includes your kids. Developing teeth, learning oral-hygiene skills, and behavioral challenges are all part of the mix, when it comes to caring for young patients. Our Hamilton, GA dentists and team have years of experience working with young patients to offer safe, effect, and maybe even fun dental care. The goal of dental care for kids is twofold. First, our goal is always to help patients keep their smiles whole and healthy for life. Second, we want to establish positive associations with visiting the dentist for your child. Many adults who suffer from dental phobia or anxiety point to a negative childhood experience as the cause. That’s why our entire team is passionate about making sure young patients are comfortable and relaxed throughout their time with us.
In addition to proving a caring environment that puts young patients at ease, we offer a number of treatments specially geared toward younger patients including:
- Dental sealants – these are clear coats of plastic that seal out bacteria, plaque, and tartar helping kids keep teeth clean and prevent tooth decay.
- Fluoride treatments – once primary (baby) or adult teeth erupt from the gum line, the fluoride absorbed in tap water and other nutrients is not adequate to strengthen the enamel. Topical fluoride treatments are a great way to strengthen enamel against the eroding effects of daily use.
- Wisdom teeth consultation and/or extraction – around the age of twelve, we recommend patients receive a wisdom tooth evaluation and consultation. We use diagnostic x-rays to view the developing teeth, and we help patients begin planning for possible extraction, if this is necessary to preserve oral health.
