Dr. Brian Fann and his friendly team at our Columbia dental practice will take good care of your child’s smile! It’s never too early to begin caring for your child’s oral health … even before the first tooth appears! Different services we offer for our younger patients include:
Sealants: In order to protect your child against the formation of cavities, we provide sealants to our younger patients. Dr. Brian Fann will paint a thin plastic barrier onto the molars, which is then dried by a special light. The sealants will cover the pits and fissures in the molars where debris and bacteria can get lodged and cause decay. Sealants last for several years and provide unequalled cavity protection.
Fluoride Treatments: To protect and strengthen your child’s teeth against decay naturally, we offer fluoride treatments, which can be essential to the health and integrity of a child’s teeth. If a child is eating too much sugar and not drinking tap water or brushing appropriately, decay is inevitable. The treatments can be applied during your child’s regular checkup. We use fluoride varnish or paste, which is painted onto the teeth.
We are happy to see children who are ten years and older. However, if you have a younger child who needs dental care, we are happy to refer you to one of our pediatric dentists.
