You’ve scheduled a family portrait, and you just hope your kids will stay still long enough to get a nice picture.
You picked out their outfits (and yours) weeks ago. You don’t mind thinking that you did a pretty good job coordinating the clothes, too. Everyone seems to match (as long as no one spills anything between now and the picture).
One thing you don’t have to worry about is your kids’ smile. Since you started going to McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry for your family dental care, your teeth have looked great.
That could be your scenario sometime in the future, so why not start visiting our Charlotte, NC dentist office today. Call 704-766-8662 to schedule a checkup with us.
Get Support From Our Team
Healthy smiles don’t happen by accident.
It takes effort. It takes consistency, and it takes teamwork. With that in mind, our team is happy to support your efforts at home with routine professional care.
Like all parents, you want your kids to be as healthy as they can be. That includes having healthy smiles and — hopefully — no tooth decay.
It’s why you teach your kids to brush their teeth and floss, too. But, you also know from experience that kids don’t always do what you would like them to do. Or, if they do it, they don’t necessarily do things the way you intended them to be done.
By getting regular dental checkups, you can help your family keep their healthy smiles longer. During a professional cleaning, we will remove plaque and tartar buildup. That is important in reducing the risk for decay, cavities, and gum infections.
At the same time, we’ll be watching for any signs of trouble. More than 40 percent of kids develop at least one cavity by their 11th birthday. If we notice a problem, we’ll take care of it quickly with our tooth-colored fillings. This will keep their smiles looking great.
Additional Help Is Here, Too
Again, knowing that kids may not always brush and floss as well as they should, you can take advantage of some of our other services to protect their teeth.
Dental sealants are a low-cost way to greatly reduce your family’s risk of cavities. Sealants are a coating for teeth that make it harder for bacteria to cause decay.
Fluoride treatments help in a different way. This mineral can repair minor damage, and it can make teeth stronger as well.
And please remember that your family’s comfort is one of our top priorities. We have invested in dental technology to make treatments as painless as possible. We also offer inhaled sedation to help kids and adults who may have some anxiety about dental care.
You and your loved ones deserve to have healthy smiles for many years to come. Our team at McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry will do everything we can to help you make that happen.
