  • What does pediatric dentistry include?

    Pediatric dentistry involves the use of dental sealants to prevent cavities and tooth decay on a child’s back molars. This treatment works by applying a thin acrylic coating over the teeth, which hardens and keeps out bacteria and plaque. Additionally, fluoride applications can help strengthen your child’s tooth enamel and prevent decay. This process involves applying fluoride directly to the teeth, which bonds the enamel and helps keep teeth strong and healthy. It can even reverse decay.

     

  • What are the common issues of dental health in children?

    Many dental problems that affect adults can also impact children. However, because children’s teeth are still developing, untreated dental conditions can lead to poor and misaligned tooth development, which can result in more serious problems as the child grows up.

    Some of the most common issues with children are:

    • Tooth decay
    • Bad breath
    • Sensitive teeth
    • Thumb-sucking
    • Gum disease
    • Teeth grinding
    • Canker sores
    • Baby teeth-loss
    • Over-retained primary teeth
    • Dental Anxiety
  • What is a space maintainer?

    Dental space maintainers are devices used to keep enough space open for permanent teeth to grow in after baby teeth are lost prematurely. One primary function of baby teeth is to hold the space for adult teeth to grow in correctly. When a baby tooth falls out prematurely, it can cause the adult teeth to grow in crooked, which is why we provide space maintainers. The gap that exists after baby teeth fall out and adult teeth come in can lead to expensive problems down the road.

    The body is typically good at maintaining enough space, but every case is different. If your child has lost a tooth prematurely, contact our office for a consultation.
