For instance, periodontal disease (more commonly known as gum disease) is a very common oral health problem that can affect children and adults alike. Because your child is still learning how to brush and floss properly, they may require periodontal therapy to reduce inflammation and banish infectious bacteria. Tooth-colored fillings are also available for those pesky cavities that are sadly all-too common among younger patients. Our team will always emphasize the power of preventive care and oral hygiene at each checkup to both parents and kids so that these issues can be stopped in their tracks early on.
We also offer the additional restorative treatment options:
When faced with cases of significant tooth damage or large areas of decay, a tooth-colored filling might not be able to successfully correct the problem. In these cases, Our doctors are likely to recommend a personalized dental crown or other restoration that can successfully cover the tooth and rebuild its strength and function. We use lifelike, high-quality materials too so that your child’s smile stays naturally beautiful and confident!
Our doctors will always do whatever they can to help children maintain their natural “adult” teeth, but sometimes, extraction becomes a necessity that can result in better oral and overall health in the long run. If our young patients are faced with a severe injury, impacted wisdom teeth, or the need for orthodontic corrections, we’ll be sure to help them stay calm and comfortable throughout the removal process. Baby teeth may also need to be extracted to make way for their permanent counterparts!
