There’s a reason kids like Dr. Flowers

Kids find Dr. Flowers to be a very caring and patient dentist, and not someone to fear. He is very patient and knows how to communicate well with kids and reassures them that everything is going to be okay.

Preventive care for Children

Family DentistryMaking sure your child gets their regular exams and cleanings is vital to effective preventive dentistry. That’s why Dr. Flowers prefers to start seeing children as early as age three.

Dr. Flowers wants to ensure that your child develops the best possible bite, profile and facial form. He’ll make treatment recommendations should your child have orthodontic-related issues. He also patiently instructs kids on the best way to floss and brush to help create healthy habits that will last them throughout their lives.

Proper care for ‘baby teeth’

A very common misconception of parents is that their child’s primary teeth don’t require dental care since they’re just temporary teeth. However, if a primary tooth is lost before the permanent tooth is ready to come in, it can cause the permanent tooth to grow in crooked. Additionally, if a baby tooth gets an infection it can actually harm the permanent tooth, which is developing under the baby tooth.

Dental sealants protect teeth

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating brushed onto the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth to prevent cavities from forming. As the sealant bonds to the tooth, it guards it from bacteria, plaque and acids that can cause tooth decay. This is an easy procedure that takes only a few minutes but can last for years.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Family Dentistry Dr. Flowers only uses tooth-colored composite material for fillings. Not only are these more aesthetic than amalgam (silver) fillings, they are also healthier for your body. They actually bond to the tooth, creating a secure seal that prevents bacteria from entering the tooth.

Dental care for mature adults

Family DentistrySeniors have unique dental conditions. Dr. Flowers has advanced training and over 30 years of experience, and is more than qualified to evaluate all aspects of a mature adult’s oral health, from the gums and teeth, to bite and jaw placement.
