Pediatric dentistry specializes in providing dental care for children and focuses on creating a positive experience for children in a dental setting. In addition to teaching lifelong dental habits for a healthy smile, early dental care is essential to take care of your child’s teeth because they aid in speech development, assist with eating and digestion, and help maintain space for permanent teeth. The great news is that we can take care of most children’s needs right here in our office. If your child would benefit from seeing a specialist we will not hesitate to let you know.
Comprehensive Oral Evaluation / Digital Radiographs
A pediatric oral evaluation is recommended every six (6) months to prevent cavities and other dental problems. Digital imagery is a valuable diagnostic tool used to identify decay, extra teeth, bone defects, tumors, cysts and check the progress of previous procedures.
Regular cleanings help keep gums healthy and teeth cavity-free. A pediatric dental cleaning includes removal of tartar and plaque and polishing of the teeth to remove stains and prevent further buildup of plaque.
Dental sealants are made of a safe resin material that is applied to the surfaces of teeth (commonly permanent molars) to prevent cavities. The sealant material fills in the crevices of a tooth and “seals” off the tooth from cavity-causing agents like food and plaque. The teeth are prepared for the sealant application, and the sealant is painted directly onto the chewing surface of each tooth and then hardened with a blue light. Sealants are applied in one visit and are easy and painless to place.
Fluoride is a natural substance that helps strengthen teeth and prevent decay. Fluoride treatments are administered at this office as an important component of pediatric dental treatment. The fluoride is applied to the teeth in a gel, foam, or varnish form.
Many school athletic programs require participants to wear a mouthguard. Custom-fitted mouthguards offer better protection and are preferable to cheaper products available in stores. While every athlete will benefit from wearing a mouthguard, athletes who are wearing braces will particularly benefit from a custom-fitted mouthguard.
