Younger patients are provided an extensive education to understand all parts of caring for their smiles. Our dentist and hygienists are gentle in their approach, and offer sedation options for patients who require additional care.
A Focus on Prevention
We strive to instill the importance of at-home hygiene and provide gentle, thorough exams and cleanings. In addition to regular in-office care, Dr. Terse and our team emphasize the best techniques for brushing and flossing. For patients too young to care for their own smiles, we teach parents how to brush and monitor their child’s dental health.
Fluoride: Fluoride varnishes following dental cleanings help your child’s teeth resist decay. This controlled introduction of fluoride remineralizes enamel and protects patients from pediatric dental caries.
Sealants: This treatment is ideal for patients who have deep ridges on their molars. As the sealant coats back teeth, it prevents food particles from sticking to the teeth and makes regular brushing effective
Sports Guards: To prevent damage from sports and other physical activities, we provide professionally crafted mouth guards. These guards protect against the loss or breakage of the teeth caused by sudden impact or other accidents.
Minimally Invasive Restorations
If patients have already experienced decay or damage to their teeth, Dr. Terse’s minimally invasive restorations ensure the ongoing health and appearance of patients’ smiles. We remove any infected tissue and use composite resin to seal out future decay. This material is matched to the shade of the surrounding enamel, allowing your child to remain confident and comfortable in their appearance. Tooth-colored crowns are also offered when more extensive treatment is needed.
