Children’s Dental Care In Lancaster
As a family dentist office serving Lancaster, PA, we welcome patients of all ages. We recommend that parents and caregivers begin bringing children in for dental care as soon as their primary teeth have erupted. This provides us the opportunity to monitor the development of their smile and introduce the concepts of oral hygiene at a very early age, laying the foundation for healthy habits as they grow.
Pediatric dental services include:
- Routine exams and cleanings
- Dental fillings
- Dental sealants
- Custom mouth guards for sports
Our staff spends time with young patients to teach them proper brushing techniques and educate them on the benefits of a diet low in sugar for both oral and overall health. We also look for the signs of developing dental problems during routine visits to avoid larger concerns down the road. Our goal is to be a partner in your child’s health care as they grow, ensuring that their smile is healthy and that they develop good oral hygiene habits.
Healthy Gums For Strong Teeth
An important aspect of your dental care is maintaining good periodontal health. Healthy gums serve as the support structure for healthy, strong teeth. Gum disease will affect most of us during our lifetime, but prompt and effective treatment can avoid tooth damage or loss that can occur when left untreated.
Dr. John and Dr. Sara perform a periodontal screening during every routine dental visit to look for the early signs of gum disease, know as gingivitis. Red, irritated or bleeding gums often indicate the presence of infection as a result of plaque building up along the gum line. Caught and addressed early, gum disease is highly treatable and can be kept at bay with good oral hygiene between visits.
For more advanced cases of gum disease, or periodontitis, Drs. Gotwalt offer treatment options for restoring oral health.
