Dr. Bork will put your children at ease in his care. He delivers treatment in a thoughtful and gentle manner, using the most recent advancements for dentistry. We look forward to a child's first visit at age 3 and enjoy their return visits as they grow and change each year. We teach them good dental hygiene at a very young age to help them keep their teeth for a lifetime.
We want your children to be free of fear of dental appointments. Your kids will always find our office a happy place to visit. Just ask any of our satisfied parents! However nervous your boy or girl may feel, we are here to make them comfortable in our care.
We instill in children the importance of good dental habits at each visit,
because children's teeth are prone to dental caries (cavities) for various
reasons. Children often do not do a thorough job of brushing their teeth.
We advise parents to oversee their children's brushing and flossing to
ensure they do a good job. Young kids tend to eat throughout the day
(grazing). This results in more acid production (eating produces acids in
the mouth) and can lead to more cavities.
Teeth that are not clean to begin with will also contribute to acid production, which can increase the risk of cavities. Healthy food choices and excellent daily cleaning routines reduce this risk. We also recommend one application of a mineralizing fluoride varnish to protect the teeth from decay.
Sometimes even meticulous brushing doesn't clean all the grooves in the
back teeth. Once bacteria and acids build up, plaque forms, eventually
producing cavities. Even the smallest cavity causes permanent damage and
will require a filling. But there is a preventive technique that can
greatly help to keep this from happening. You'll be amazed how easy the
All teeth are cleaned and sanitized. A coat of the sealant is applied to the entire surface of each molar. The sealant is clear and completely invisible. Dr. Bork then uses a curing light to bond the sealant to the teeth. It's completed that easily! No shots or drills are necessary. This is the most effective treatment to help children and adolescents keep their natural teeth cavity free.
Kids can have overbites, headaches, facial pain, and breathing problems due to improper alignment – this doesn't occur only in adults. Early detection and proper treatment in children is important to prevent additional problems later on. Correcting bites and airway obstruction focuses on assessment of facial development and skeletal misalignment for treatment with specialized orthodontics. We treat these problems when the patient is young so they do not have severe health problems later in life!
