Children’s Dentistry in Hutchinson, Kansas
Dr. Grant Ringler: Hutchinson Dentist for Children
Here at Grant D. Ringler, DDS, we are passionate about providing gentle, high-quality dental care for children and adults in one convenient location. Many people are unaware that even babies can suffer from problems like tooth decay, often from the frequent and long-term exposure of their teeth to liquids containing sugars. At our Hutchinson, Kansas dental office, we offer children’s dentistry to help prevent problems alike baby bottle tooth decay and so much more.
As your children get older, their dental care will grow and change to meet their evolving needs. As adult teeth come in, Dr. Ringler and his associates may introduce fluoride treatment as an important preventive service. Fluoride is a natural mineral that’s often added to water supplies, and studies have shown that patients who typically drink fluoridated water tend to have stronger, healthier teeth on a whole that are less prone to cavity development. If our team determines that your child isn’t receiving enough fluoride, we can provide professional applications that help their growing smiles stay bright.
For some children, the process of learning to brush and floss properly can be a long road. In the meantime, the deep, hard-to-reach chewing grooves of their back teeth are accumulating damaging food particles and bacteria that can lead to cavities. Thankfully, dental sealants can be a big help in protecting these vulnerable areas! These safe, plastic coatings are painted directly onto the tooth during a comfortable and fast procedure, creating a strong barrier that reduces your child’s chances of developing decay.
Let our office help you build helpful habits that will benefit your child and your entire family. Contact us to make a children’s dentistry appointment today!
