We offer a full range of services dedicated to
A Better Dental Experience
- New Patient Appointment During a new patient appointment, the doctor can see how your child’s growth and development is progressing, detect cavities, discuss healthy eating habits to prevent decay, show you and your child proper tooth brushing techniques and see your child’s response to a dentist visit.
- Periodic Exam We check for decay, growth and development of the teeth and jaws and make sure any fillings your child has are still intact. It is best to catch any problems early while they are still small and less extensive to fix.
- Recall Prophy This procedure removes plaque and calculus from the teeth that can cause cavities and gum infections. We also educate you and your child about healthy habits that will help him/her keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime.
- BWX (Bitewings) These films let the doctor see decay in between the teeth while it is still small. If we didn’t take these films the cavities would be very large by the time we could see the decay just by looking in the mouth.
- Panoramic Film These show us where the permanent teeth are, if there are any extra teeth, missing teeth, orthodontic needs or pathology. These issues would not be detected on a routine film.
- Stainless Steel Crowns If a lot of tooth structure is destroyed by decay, this would be the only way to save the tooth and hold on to it until your child is 12-13 years old. This tooth is needed to hold the space in the mouth for the permanent tooth to come into. If this tooth is lost you can create unnecessary orthodontic problems.
- Space Maintainers These hold the space open for the permanent tooth to erupt into and assist in minimizing orthodontic needs in the future.
- Sealant This protective layer fills in the pits and grooves of the tooth where the tooth brush cannot reach and bacteria can start cavities.
- Extraction When an abscess/infection has destroyed the support for the tooth and the tooth cannot be saved, it is necessary to remove the tooth. Pain or sickness can result if the tooth is not removed.
- Nitrous Oxide This helps children be more relaxed and calm for treatment and can create a more positive dental experience for your child.
- Treatment at the Hospital or Sedation in the Office A safer option for children that are uncooperative or apprehensive about treatment.
- Fillings A less expensive and less extensive option for fixing the tooth while the decay is small.
- Fluoride Treatment This treatment is done with a more concentrated form of Fluoride and will re-mineralize areas that are the beginnings of decay. Fluoride will bind the tooth structure and make it more resistant to decay.
- Pulpotomy This removes the infection inside the tooth caused by the decay growing into the nerve. This saves the tooth and holds the space for the permanent tooth.
