Why Choose Comprehensive Dental Associates of Central Connecticut for Children’s Dentistry?

Checkups & Cleanings for Children

During your child’s checkups, we will do more than check for signs of cavities. We will also evaluate how the teeth are developing; if we notice any potential problems, we may be able to get ahead of them before they lead to major issues. We will also thoroughly clean your child’s teeth and give them guidance on how and why they should care for their oral health on a day to day basis.

Dental Sealants

We often recommend dental sealants for children whose permanent teeth have already erupted. A sealant is simply a thin plastic coating that puts a barrier between a tooth’s chewing surface and the plaque and food particles that might otherwise get stuck in the tooth’s grooves. The sealant placement process is fast and painless — and it can play a major role in cavity prevention. Sealants are particularly recommended for children with deep grooves in their teeth and children who are struggling to master brushing and flossing techniques.

Special Needs Children’s Dentistry

We welcome all children as patients, including those who have physical, mental, or emotional challenges that may make it a challenge for them to attend dental appointments. We have experience in caring for such precious young ones, and we have all the necessary equipment in our office to make their time here as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We will also provide you with insight on how you can care for your child’s teeth and gums between dental visits.

Sedation for Children

Dental appointments are an intimidating experience for many children, and we fully understand that. That is why we always approach our young patients with an extra dose of friendliness and warmth. Of course, some children need a little more help to feel comfortable. We therefore offer safe, effective sedation options that can enable even the most anxious young ones to relax while we clean their teeth, fill in cavities, or perform other types of treatment.
