Kind and Caring Dentistry for Children in Prairie Village
Actually, dentistry for children begins with you—the parent. Your example of a good oral health routine, including regular checkups, is key to building that same commitment in your children. Ideally, Dr. Cattaneo would like to begin seeing your children in the office by the time they are three years old. And as with all the members of your family, when you bring your children to our Prairie Village office we will emphasize the importance of preventing oral health problems before they can progress and develop into more serious problems.
At your children’s checkups we will gently but thoroughly clean their teeth, assess the health of their gums—children are not immune to gum disease—and examine carefully for any signs of tooth decay. In addition to these common preventive measures, we also offer:
- Dental sealants to aid in decay prevention
- Fluoride supplements to strengthen tooth enamel
- Custom athletic mouthguards
- Treatment of dental cavities
- Patient education for you and your child
