Children’s Dentistry for Liberty, MO
When your children climb into the dentist’s chair at the office of Dr. Michael C. Byars, they’ll have a front row seat for fun. Yes, of course, Dr. Byars and his team take good care of kids’ teeth and gums, but you should expect the unexpected, too—a little dancing, a few jokes, a funny skit, maybe even a skateboarding dentist. When you make the short drive from Liberty to Dr. Byar’s office in Kansas City, MO, you get children’s dentistry and a show! Don’t believe us? Just check out the videos below.
No matter how old your children are, Dr. Byars and his staff provide treatment that is age appropriate in an environment that is professional, calming, and a bit fun. Dr. Byars encourages parents to start bringing their children to the dentist sometime between their first and third birthdays. Up until then, try to make brushing at home a pleasant family activity, so your children associate happy memories with taking care of their teeth.
At their first appointment with Dr. Byars, we’ll count their teeth, check for early signs of decay and gum disease—no, children’s teeth are not immune to these—and if they seem ready, one of our hygienists will clean and polish their teeth, too. Of course, if we do discover a problem, such as a cavity, we’ll want to treat sooner rather than later in order to avoid the need for more extensive treatment.
Fluoride and Dental Sealants
As your children grow, Dr. Byars will want to add other components to their dental checkups. Fluoride treatments strengthen tooth enamel and help your children fight the battle against tooth decay. Likewise, dental sealants offer protection against decay. Sealants start out as a liquid plastic that is “painted” onto your children’s second molars, the ones that usually erupt between the ages of 11 and 13. When hardened, dental sealants are an added layer of protection against decay causing bacteria. If you’d like to make an appointment for your children with the dentist who provides dental care with a show, then please call the office of Dr. Michael C. Byars in Kansas City, MO. We’ll be glad to take care of your whole family’s dental needs.
