How Can You Help Make My Child’s First Dental Visit Enjoyable?
The first visit to the family dentist sets the stage for years to come. At Volterra Dental, we treat your child with warmth and respect so they do not feel intimidated. We even have toys they can play with at their “happy visit” so they can build positive associations with the family dentist.
Will My Teenager Need Orthodontic Treatment?
Beyond any cosmetic dentistry issue, crooked teeth offer a perfect place for tooth decay and gum disease to occur. They can also make your teen feel self-conscious about their smile.
If we determine that your child needs orthodontic care, we offer traditional braces, Incognito™ braces (by 3M), and Invisalign “clear braces” for teenagers and adults alike.
What Can Be Done To Prevent Cavities?
Cavities are caused by bacteria living off of food particles in your mouth. We can repair the damage with our tooth-colored composite fillings, inlays, or onlays, but it’s best to prevent the damage if possible. Your family should brush and floss regularly at home and visit Volterra Dental every six months for a thorough dental cleaning and exam.
What If My Child Is Afraid Of The Dentist?
It’s been estimated that as many as 1 in 5 people fear the dentist. Often, this is due to a bad experience at the dentist’s office as a child. That’s why we offer several comfort options to help your child (and you!) feel more relaxed:
- Headphones with soft music
- Dental sedation, including nitrous oxide, which safely induces a relaxed feeling
