In addition to providing preventive and routine dental care, we also perform corrective procedures.
Cleaning and Exams
Dental cleanings and exams are an essential part of maintaining your child’s oral health. Regular check-ups and cleanings help to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems, and can also detect issues early, when they are easier and less expensive to treat.
During a dental exam, our pediatric dentist will assess your child’s oral health and check for any signs of decay, gum disease, or other issues. They may take X-rays or other diagnostic images to get a better understanding of your child’s oral health and to detect problems that may not be visible to the naked eye.
Time-tested metal braces are a popular and effective orthodontic treatment option for children who need to straighten their teeth and correct bite issues. Braces work by using gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into the proper position, resulting in a straighter, healthier smile.
Traditional braces are often more affordable than other orthodontic treatment options, making them a great choice for families who are looking for a cost-effective solution.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to gently shift teeth into the proper position.
Invisalign is highly effective at correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded or crooked teeth, bite problems, and gaps between teeth.
Invisalign is becoming more popular these days because of the fact that it is clear. Removable aligners are virtually invisible, making them a great choice for children who are self-conscious about wearing braces.
Tooth-colored fillings are a popular option for children who need to have cavities treated. Unlike traditional silver fillings, tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resin, which matches the color of your child’s teeth and provides a natural-looking result.
Some of the benefits of tooth-colored fillings for children include: Aesthetically pleasing appearance, Durability and it can help to preserve the strength and stability of your child’s teeth.
Dental extractions for children can be a necessary procedure in some cases to maintain their oral health. While it is always our goal to preserve a child’s natural teeth, there are times when an extraction is the best course of action.
Reasons for a dental extraction in children may include: Severe decay or infection, Crowding or Orthodontic treatment. Sometimes an extraction may be necessary to make room for orthodontic treatment, such as braces.
The extraction process for children is usually done under local anesthesia to numb the area and ensure a comfortable experience. In some cases, conscious sedation or general anesthesia may be recommended to ensure the child is relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.
How old are our usual Pediatric patients?
As mentioned, we can treat kids from birth to their teenage years. But oftentimes, we still see patients with special needs even past 18 years old because we already know the patient’s dental history, special treatments, and procedure needs.
It’s important to start taking your child as early as 6 months after the first tooth appears or by their first birthday. This allows us to monitor their oral health and provide preventive care that can help reduce the risk of future dental problems.
