Our primary focus is to introduce children to safe, healthy preventative care and enhance development through proper nutrition and oral health.
Dr. George and the team at Pure Holistic Dental enjoy working with children as well as getting to show them how things work. We take the time to make sure every child and their parent is comfortable throughout their visit.
Reversing Cavities– Cavities seem to be very common for children. That doesn’t have to be the case for your child. Dr. George focuses on educating children and their parents on nutrition, oral hygiene, and preventive care for cavity-free smiles. Nutrition is not only for prevention but has also been found to help reverse some cavities.
There are also other ways to reverse cavities:
- Coconut Oil
- Olive Gold O3 – Ozonized Olive Oil Super Oxygen
- Ozone treatment (Link ozone page here)
- Saliva Max (Prescription mouthwash)
- Colloidal silver
- Xlear Spray Rain Oral Mist Spray
- Multi Vitamins
We always recommend you consult with Dr. George to discuss which option will work best for your Children’s Dentistry . If your child does get a cavity that can’t be reversed you can feel comfortable knowing we use the same safe filling procedures with all of our patients.
Frenotomies– Frenum are folds that attach the tongue to the floor of the mouth. They can also be found in the upper lip. When it’s too tight or anchored too low, problems will arise. Commonly known as “tongue-tie”, this medical condition can cause health problems and oral development delays. In infants it can cause issues with breastfeeding, thus getting the right amount of nutrition. Later on in life, children can have trouble speaking and eating certain foods. This condition is also linked to TMJ, tooth decay, and gum disease.
We offer a painless and effective procedure, which releases the attachment and allows the tongue or lip to move properly. It is never too late to treat the condition, as many adults have this procedure as well.
Myofunctional Therapy– It is very common for children to have symptoms of sleep apnea and other airway issues that are often misdiagnosed. Dr. George’s advanced training includes the diagnosis and treatment of children’s airway concerns.
This therapy is a program of exercises that we teach to your child that target facial muscles used to chew and swallow. Pure Holistic Dental will always go over individualized plans but these therapies can easily be done at home. This treatment is non-invasive, inexpensive, and has no risks or downtime. In addition to helping with sleep apnea, Myofunctional Therapy can also:
- Reduce headaches
- Help with heartburn or GERD
- Reduce pain from TMJ
Growth Appliances– Children’s mouth, jaw and teeth change as they get older. Losing baby teeth, a dental injury, thumb sucking, etc can all have effects on mouth development. We offer a holistic way to guide the teeth and stimulate them to develop correctly. These techniques will allow teeth to come in with perfect spacing between them, helping with:
- Airway and breathing
- Talking and Communicating
- Drinking fluids
ALF Appliances– A light, springy-wire appliance that promotes forward growth in a U shape. Deemed a “natural expander”, ALF appliances use natural growth stimulating forces such as the tongue to aid in expansion. The texture against the back surface of the teeth helps the tongue to push and apply pressure, which activates much of the expansion.
