Nashville Dentistry Services for Kids
Dr. Wiggs sees children ages 3 and up, and typically starts with an introductory exam that involves mom and dad. At this time, he can instruct parents on the best approach for teaching their child how to brush and floss properly. Patient comfort is important to Dr. Wiggs, and he ensures children are not anxious during cleanings. This welcoming environment helps set kids on the right pathway for a lifetime of healthy teeth.
As a popular preventive care measure, Dr. Wiggs offers dental sealants that protect a child's vulnerable molars from early decay. They create a barrier between the top or cusp of the tooth and bacteria that live in the mouth. In addition to sealants, Dr. Wiggs’ Nashville family dentistry office provides:
• Dental X-rays to view a child's teeth and jaws with minimal radiation exposure.
• Fluoride treatments to strengthen the teeth.
• Mouth guards for both sporting events and to help prevent kids from grinding their teeth at night.
• Regular preventive cleanings and a dental exam -- typically performed every six months.
