Is your child afraid of going to the dentist? If you have to  force them into the car when it’s time to leave for a checkup or a dental procedure, or bribe them to go, something may be wrong with your choice of dental office. Knoxville family dentist, Dr. Jim Erpenbach makes dental care fun and comfortable for your children.

Prevention for Kids

You should start taking your children to the dentist by the time they reach age five. Beginning appointments this early will make them accustomed to seeing the dentist. Fortunately, they will probably not face dental issues until they are older, if at all. However, early intervention will always make treatment easier. Dr. Erpenbach will examine your children’s teeth for dental issues at every checkup, and he will place dental sealants on healthy teeth to prevent decay. He also provides fluoride treatment to strengthen their developing teeth.

A Gentle Approach

If the sights, ,and sounds in a dental office are intimidating to your child, they are likely to feel much more comfortable going to Dr. Erpenbach’s office. When he discovers cavities, the use of air abrasion, a conservative procedure that removes only decay and no other tissue, preserves more of the healthy tooth structure. Air abrasion does not produce heat, pressure, or intimidating sounds like more archaic treatments. This form of filling can even reduce or eliminate the need for local anesthetic.

Offering Choices

Should your child need a filling, after air abrasion Dr. Erpenbach can place a Twinky Star colored restoration. These unique fillings are made of a safe resin material which comes in a variety of sparkly colors, including gold, silver, pink, and green. When children are allowed to select the color of their fillings, it makes them more excited about their dental procedures. They will also be more motivated to keep their fillings clean as well as the rest of their teeth.
