Preventive Treatments

Even if your child practices good oral hygiene at home (and we know they do!), they should still be coming to see our team every six months to have their teeth and gums cleaned and examined. High-quality preventive dental care is one of the best ways to ensure that your little one’s smile stays healthy and squeaky clean!

  • Routine Dental Exams

    Dr. Ramirez checks each patient’s teeth, gums, and the inside of their mouth for signs of tooth decay, gingivitis, and other dental issues.

  • Professional Teeth Cleanings

    Our excellent hygienists gently scrape away built-up plaque and expertly polish and floss between each tooth.

  • Dental Sealants

    These clear coatings are applied over the top of each molar to prevent cavity-causing bacteria from collecting in hard-to-brush areas.

  • Fluoride Treatments

    Fluoride is beneficial for strengthening the tooth enamel, and fluoride treatments can actually reverse very early signs of tooth decay.

  • Athletic Mouthguards

    Durable custom mouthguards are designed to fit comfortably and protect the teeth from any potential dental trauma.

Orthodontic Services

Orthodontic treatment plans help patients achieve beautifully straight smiles, but did you know that straightening teeth can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and wearing down teeth? Not to mention it can make eating easier and boost self-esteem, especially for kids and teenagers. Our office can schedule orthodontic consultations with patients as young as seven years old to determine the best time for them to begin their orthodontic treatment.

  • Invisalign

    Involves wearing a series of clear plastic aligners to gently shift the teeth. They are discreet, completely removable, comfortable to wear, and come with no food restrictions.

  • Metal Braces

    Conventional braces are attached to the front of the teeth with a special adhesive and can only be removed by a dental professional. Patients don’t have to keep track of them, and they can treat virtually any orthodontic issue.

  • Space Maintainers

    Should your child lose a tooth that wasn’t quite ready to come out yet, a space maintainer can be placed to prevent nearby teeth from filling in the gap and allow the adult tooth to grow in when it’s ready.

  • Phase 1 Orthodontics

    Phase 1 orthodontics is for kids who still have some baby teeth and don’t yet have all of their permanent teeth. With Phase 1, we can fix problems before they become severe such as overbites, crossbites, tooth spacing, and much more!
