Our Pediatric Specialist will perform an exam at each new patient visit, routine visit, and emergency visit. The doctor will examine your child's mouth, including teeth, tongue and gums to provide you with details about your child's oral health.
X-rays are recommended every six months to help with prevention and early intervention of interproximal decay that is unable to be seen during a clinical exam.
** The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends x-rays every 6-12 months or as recommended by the doctor’s clinical judgment due to concerns or lack thereof.
A thin layer of flowable material that is applied over the biting surfaces of molars to prevent debris from getting trapped, causing decay.
Fluoride, a naturally-occurring mineral, helps prevent cavities in children and adults by making the outer surface of your teeth (enamel) more resistant to the acid attacks that cause tooth decay. This is applied after every routine appointment unless specifically requested otherwise or due to insurance limitations.
**The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) states Children at moderate cavities risk should receive a professional fluoride treatment at least every 6 months; those with high caries risk should receive greater frequency of professional fluoride applications (ie, every 3-6 months).
A tooth colored composite (BPA free) that is used to restore the integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. Structural loss is usually the result of cavities or trauma.
*We do not use amalgam in our offices.
A treatment for white spots also known as “ortho spots” and non-cavitated lesions between the teeth. This innovative approach requires no drilling and has the ability to strengthen, stabilize or limit the progression of the lesions. The appearance of the spots reduce significantly in size and visibility, sometimes not being visible at all after treatment.
*For permanent teeth only
Routine removal of tooth structure due to decay, infection, lingually erupting mandibular incisors (shark teeth), or recommendations from an orthodontist.
Space maintainers are permanent until taken off by the dentist. Their purpose is to hold space for a permanent tooth where a primary, or baby tooth, was extracted prematurely due to decay, infection, etc.
Also known as a stainless steel crown. This is an effective way to restore the tooth when the tooth has extensive cavities (large/deep decay), cervical decalcification, and/or developmental defects. The stainless steel crown is a permanent restoration and will come out when the primary (baby) tooth goes through the normal process of permanent tooth eruption. Stainless steel crowns are not tooth colored restorations.
Pediatric porcelain crowns are preformed. Much like the stainless steel crown, this is an effective way to restore the tooth when the tooth has extensive cavities (large/deep decay), cervical decalcification, and/or developmental defects. The porcelain crown is a permanent restoration and will come out when the primary (baby) tooth goes through the normal process of permanent tooth eruption. Porcelain crowns are tooth colored restorations.
We offer opalescence prefilled teeth whitening trays. This is a professional strength product, great for teens! The trays come in a 10 day supply with treatments from 15-90 minutes. With those times, it’s easy to fit a bright smile into busy schedules before back to school pictures, holiday pictures, or any special occasions.
Sports Mouth Guards
Our sports guards are custom made to protect your child’s teeth while they are playing their favorite sport.
Night guards are often recommended after careful consideration for treatment and/or relief of severe grinding.
