Children’s Dental Services in Burlington
Fuller Dental welcomes children and is proficient in helping young patients feel comfortable and relaxed while attending to their dental health needs. Children should visit the dentist as soon as the primary teeth begin to erupt and develop good oral hygiene habits as early as possible.
Fuller Dental is a general dentist office that believes regular checkups are the most important thing to ensuring proper oral hygiene and also disease prevention. Healthy teeth not only make your smile beautiful, but it also makes you able to eat and speak properly. At every visit, you will meet with one of our expert dentists to discuss any dental concerns and your smile goals.
During your routine dental care visit, you can expect:

Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a common and complex health condition affecting millions of people. It is a sleep-related breathing disorder commonly marked by loud snoring and repeated cessation of breathing during sleep. Dr. Peterson is a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and stays informed on the latest research and treatments for sleep apnea and other sleep related disorders.
Dr. Peterson utilizes oral appliance therapy, a custom fit sleep appliance that is similar to a mouth guard that should be worn while you sleep. These comfortable appliances work by repositioning the jaw for natural air flow to prevent snoring and other symptoms.
