Children’s Dentistry at JL Dental in Arnold, MO, Will Make You and Your Child Smile!

September 18, 2014

If only taking care of your children’s teeth were child’s play. Actually, at JL Dental in Arnold, MO, the husband and wife team of Drs. Jonathan and Laura Mearsmakes children’s dentistryseem as enjoyable as, well, child’s play. From that very first visit, through the teen years and on into adulthood, we strive for a friendly relationship that builds a foundation of lifelong oral healthcare.
The ABC’s of Children’s Dentistry
The old adage, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” couldn’t be more true than when it comes to caring for your children’s teeth. That’s why JL Dental puts prevention to work in their practice of children’s dentistry. We’d much rather prevent a problem from ever starting than treat a problem later.
With this in mind, Drs. Jonathan and Laura Mearsrecommend that your child start visiting JL Dental around the age of three. At this first visit, we will count their teeth, perform a quick exam and try to make them feel comfortable in a dentist’s office. As they grow and move through the progressive phases of oral development, we we will apply dental sealants to their adult molars in order to prevent decay and use fluoride treatments to strengthen their teeth. Of course, if we do notice a problem at one of their regular six-month check-ups, we will treat that, too.
Children’s Dentistry and Beyond
You may be surprised and happy to know that JL Dental also offers orthodontic treatment in our Arnold, MO, office. We offer both traditional metal braces and ClearCorrect for our orthodontic patients of all ages. After treatment, your child’s smile will be straighter and healthier, and they will have the confidence to face the world!

It’s National Children’s Dental Health Month and JL Dental Has Your Kids Covered!

February 6, 2014

Every February, the American Dental Association (ADA) and oral healthcare professionals from all over the country observe National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM). This is a great time to emphasize the importance of early dental care and oral hygiene, the very building blocks of a lifetime of healthy smiles. At JL Dental in Arnold, MO, Drs. Jonathan and Laura Mears invite you and your kids to discover the many benefits of children’s dentistry in an environment that is warm and welcoming.
Early Care for Lifelong Oral Health
When it comes to children’s dentistry, we believe that prevention is the best cure. Rather than wait for problems like tooth decay and severe misalignment to take hold, we take proactive measures to keep these issues from stealing the joy from your kids’ smiles. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and sealants protect developing teeth from decay.
You may be surprised to learn that, despite the fact that we are primarily a general dentistry practice, we offer orthodontic treatment as well. This means that we can keep your children’s teeth healthy beginning at an early age and help straighten their smile as well.
Celebrate NCDHM with JL Dental!

Though proper dental care is important all year round, this special month is the perfect time to make sure your children get the best in general and preventive care. Contact our office in Arnold, MO today to schedule your appointment and see what a difference caring, experienced dentists can make in your child’s future. We also happily welcome families from throughout the surrounding areas of Imperial, Oakville, Barnhart and beyond. Drs. Jonathan and Laura Mears can’t wait to give your little ones something to smile about!
