At Alaska Center for Dentistry, we have made every effort to ensure that our younger patients will love visiting the dentist. When you walk in for your appointment, your little one can rush over to our Kids Corner, where we offer games to play and movies to watch. Happily distracted, they won’t mind waiting for mom and dad to finish with their dental treatments. Our practice is designed to make them feel right at home, and to help them think of the dentist’s office as a positive place.
Gentle, Kid-Friendly Treatments
We provide our young dental patients with good oral health foundations to carry them well into adulthood. We educate our young patients about the importance of good dental hygiene habits in engaging ways that help them have fun while they learn. For parents, it is important to remember that a healthy smile will provide your child with confidence and improved social opportunities. With regular checkups and cleanings and a number of child dental services, we will help ensure your child grows up to have a winning, healthy smile.
Comprehensive Tooth Protection with Sealants
We recommend dental sealants for all children six years of age and older. Sealants cover the back teeth, which are very hard to clean for children. The back teeth, or molars, contain deep grooves where food often gets stuck and bacteria begin to thrive — potentially causing cavities.
Dental sealants will protect your child’s teeth from cavities, which could save your child from enduring painful tooth and gum problems and expensive dental treatments in the future.
If your child needs dental attention, make an appointment with us today. Our doors are always open, and our staff is always excited to meet new patients and to educate them about dental health.
