Did you know that dental decay is the leading chronic childhood illness in the United States? We emphasize the importance of preventive dental care for patients at all ages, from infancy through adolescence. As soon as the first baby teeth emerge, we recommend bringing your child in for an oral exam. By monitoring dental development, jaw growth, and alignment of your child’s teeth, we can help your child enjoy optimal oral health. Since an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, we offer children added levels of protection against tooth decay with essential treatments such as dental sealants to shield vulnerable areas of their newly erupted permanent molars and pre-molars as well as periodic fluoride therapy to strengthen the developing dental enamel. If your child experiences anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist, don’t worry! Our compassionate staff is sensitive to the unique emotional needs of children and treats them with the highest degree of warmth and compassion. We also offer options in dental sedation for especially apprehensive patients.
At the office of Perry L. Jeffries, DDS and Associates, PA, we’re dedicated to providing the highest level of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our practice and the many services we provide, give our office a call today.
