At Suntree Smiles we welcome patients of all ages for care! As a family and Melbourne children’s dentist, we proudly provide comprehensive dental services for every member of the family. Joined by our warm and friendly staff, we aim to make visits to the dentist’s office engaging, rewarding, and yes, even fun. As an experienced dentist with a commitment to excellence, Dr. Torras, he takes the time to educate your kids about the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene and following a healthy diet—both essential practices for establishing a lifetime of good oral health.
The primary objective of our preventive dental care program for kids is to help prevent the onset of common dental issues while giving your kids the tools they need to maintain their oral health. Routine checkups at our office feature a comprehensive oral examination, assisted by the latest diagnostic technology as needed to screen for a wide range of dental issues. By detecting dental issues at their earliest, your Melbourne children’s dentist can typically deliver the most straightforward course in care, saving the need for extensive therapies later on down the road. We also perform a gentle teeth cleaning to expertly rid the mouth of harmful plaque buildup. Because kids are at notoriously high risk for developing cavities, we offer periodic fluoride therapy and the placement of dental sealants as an additional layer of protection. Topical fluoride has been used by dentists for decades and is clinically proven to reduce the risk for developing cavities. Our dental sealants are applied to the back molars when they come in, typically around the ages of 6 and 12. Dental sealant are placed over the deep grooves of the back teeth, smoothing over crevices where bacteria can accumulate and contribute to tooth decay.
From routine checkups, to the gentlest treatment of cavities and dental emergencies, you can depend on our Melbourne children’s dentist for the comprehensive oral care needs of your kids. To schedule your next family visit to our office, give us a ring today!
