It’s recommended that you bring your child in for a visit within six months of the first tooth’s eruption – usually around their first birthday. Since decay can occur in even the smallest of teeth, the earlier your baby visits us, the more likely he or she is to avoid problems. We’ll look for any signs of early problems with your baby’s oral health, and check-in with you about the best way to care for your little one’s teeth. Remember that preparing for each dental visit with a positive attitude goes a long way toward making your child comfortable with regular checkups.
We are committed to helping your children achieve optimal oral health. During routine visits, we perform examinations to check for cavities and other dental problems, professional hygiene procedures to remove plaque and tartar, apply fluoride, and take digital x-rays based on the needs of the patient.
Fillings and Crowns
Baby teeth are important for eating, speaking, appearance, and holding space for the developing adult teeth. They are crucial to your child’s overall growth, development, and well-being. If left untreated, cavities can result in pain, infections, swelling, and damage to the adult teeth. We treat cavities using white fillings, stainless steel (metal) crowns, and zirconia (white ceramic) crowns.
After careful examination, our team may recommend dental sealants for your child. Sealants are a protective coating applied to prevent cavities on back adult molars. This is straight-forward, safe, and non-invasive procedure that is well tolerated by children.
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF)
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a non-invasive option to delay and stop the progression of dental cavities. It is well tolerated by most children and can help to delay the need for more advanced care.
We strive to provide same day treatment for emergencies. We treat all pediatric and orthodontic emergencies including dental pain, cavities, infection, and trauma. If you need urgent treatment after hours, emergency phone numbers are listed on our voicemail.
