Dentistry for kids in Dothan, AL is about more than fillings
Posted By Dr Nathan Pfister
For most adults, their most vivid memories of dental visits involve getting fillings. Usually noticeable silver-colored amalgam fillings. At Biodentist Alabama, dentistry for Dothan, AL kids is different. Dr. Nathan and Dr. Brian Pfister and their team focus on prevention of childhood dental problems. Their goal is to establish oral care that fosters overall wellness for life.
Home hygiene and dental help
Pediatric dental care can start even before your baby is delivered. Expectant mothers are at elevated risk for dental diseases that may impact baby’s wellbeing, now and into the future. The dentists offer nutritional and oral care advice to help mom maintain a healthy mouth.
Once baby arrives, our team provides guidance on caring for delicate gums and teeth. You can ask questions about diet, baby bottle tooth decay, pacifiers, or any other concerns.
Baby’s dental visits should begin at about age one, or when the first tooth emerges. These relaxed visits set the stage for a good lifetime attitude toward dental care.
Our dentists take special interest in helping your child avoid the discomfort and embarrassment of tooth decay, without the use of artificial fluoride. Should a cavity occur, it will be detected early with CariVu technology. We repair tooth decay with safe, natural-looking composite resin material that contains no mercury.
Our team is vigilant for other dental problems that are often overlooked in children:
Bruxism – clenching and grinding
Does your child already have amalgam fillings that you would like to have replaced with composites? As an accredited member of the IAOMT, Dr. Nathan Pfister is trained and certified in safe removal techniques set forth by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. This method protects the patient and staff from mercury vapor and particulate matter, and keeps the toxin out of public wastewater.
