Preventative Dentistry: Early & Routine Dental Care
Good Habits are formed young.
We want to keep your child's smile bright and healthy, so continuing care and preventative routine cleanings are important to us. We work to earn your trust as we discuss teeth in connection to diet and nutrition, dental x-rays, preventative measures such as sealants and fluoride, as well as early caries detection and diagnosis.
During a child's routine exam, the dentist will evaluate their teeth, gums, head, and neck to rule out any tooth decay, gum disease, or abnormalities. The dentist will look at your child's jaw growth and tongue positioning to determine any airway obstructions or frenulum restrictions. The dental occlusion and growth and development of your child will be evaluated for any orthodontic needs. Any preventive or restorative procedures needed, such as dental sealants or fillings, will be outlined to ensure your child maintains a healthy smile for years to come.
What are Dental Sealants?
Dental sealants are a thin, protective coating made from dental materials that cover the deep grooves on the chewing surfaces of teeth, helping to prevent decay. They are a preventative procedure that can reduce the risk of decay by up to 80%.
How are sealants applied to a child's teeth?
Applying sealants to the teeth is a quick and painless procedure. First, the tooth is cleaned to make sure all the food particles and germs are removed from the grooves. Next, a special gel called etch is placed on the chewing surface for a few seconds and then rinsed off with water. The tooth is dried and painted with a thin layer of liquid dental sealant material which sets by shining a special light on the tooth for a few seconds to help harden the sealant. It takes only a few minutes to seal each tooth.
Restorative Dentistry: We're Here to Help
We're your partner in restoring your child's oral health.
A tooth can get damaged due to trauma or decay, restorative dental care can restore its health, function, and appearance. Our goal is to always retain as much of the original tooth as possible, and remove only the affected portion. This conservative approach is optimal for both oral health and aesthetics.
We offer the following restorative services at our practice:
Composite (White) Restorations
Composite fillings are made with tooth-colored material to blend in with the natural coloration of the rest of your child’s tooth. After removing the area of decay, the composite material is applied to the tooth and hardened.
