Why does your child need Children's Dentistry?

It is important to bring your child to see the dentist once every six months. Your child's six month checkup appointment allows us to examine your child's teeth and provide them with a dental cleaning. The cleaning gets rid of buildup on the teeth, as well as check the health of your child's gums. The exam checks for signs of cavities and other problems that might get worse if left untreated.

What does Children's Dentistry involve?

At Galligan Dental, we provide a range of important procedures that are geared to improving and maintaining the health of your child's smile. Your child will become established in our office with an exam and cleaning. From there, we can create a personalized treatment plan specific to your child, if additional work is needed. Some of the more common procedures we offer for children include:

  • Dental Exams
  • Professional Cleanings
  • Fluoride Treatments
  • Sealants
  • Fillings
  • Extractions
  • Root Canals
  • Crowns
  • Bonding

What can your child expect during a typical Children's Dentistry appointment?

Your child's first appointment with us involves a comprehensive examination performed by Dr. Galligan and a professional dental cleaning by one of our hygienists. Both the exam and cleaning help us check for signs of cavities and other problems in your child's mouth. If additional treatment is needed, we can schedule an appointment for your child to come back in and have the work done. Our goal is to provide your family with a comfortable, professional dental office that you can trust. We work with children of all ages and take a kid-friendly approach to providing them the care they need.
