  • What does pediatric dentistry include?

    Pediatric dentistry includes using dental sealants to help prevent cavities and tooth decay on a child’s back molars. This is a proven preventive treatment that works by applying a thin acrylic coating over the teeth and allowing it to harden, which keeps out unwanted bacteria and plaque that could otherwise harm the teeth.

    Additionally, using fluoride applications to strengthen your child’s tooth enamel is extremely helpful in preventing decay. This involves applying fluoride directly to the teeth—it will bond the enamel and help keep teeth strong and healthy, it could even reverse decay.

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

    The dental issues that affect kids are often similar to those that affect adults. However, because children’s teeth are still developing, untreated dental problems can lead to poor and misaligned tooth development, which may result in more serious issues 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 preserve space for permanent teeth to grow in after baby teeth are lost prematurely. Baby teeth play a crucial role in maintaining the space for adult teeth to grow properly. If a baby tooth falls out prematurely, it can cause the adult teeth to grow in crooked. This is why we provide space maintainers. The gap that occurs after baby teeth fall out and adult teeth come in can lead to costly problems in the future. Although the body usually maintains enough space, every case is different. If your child has lost a tooth prematurely, please contact our office for a consultation.
