Receiving top-quality dental treatment is just as important for children and teens as it is for adults. We take great pride in helping our younger patients achieve excellent oral health with top-quality pediatric dental services.
Maintaining positive dental health and a great-looking smile is a process that starts early in life. Serious conditions can occur at any time if a young person doesn’t take the necessary precautions. Parents must pay close attention to their child’s teeth and make sure that their young one is always receiving the treatment and care they need. At Capital Dental, we feature a top-notch pediatric dentistry program that makes this possible. We strive to help parents and their children understand that working to prevent serious oral health problems and issues is much easier than trying to restore teeth and gums after they have already been damaged.
Children and teens who make regular dental visits during their younger years are much more likely to maintain strong and healthy teeth throughout their life. We want every child who visits us to feel relaxed, comfortable and eager for their next visit. Our staff members love to work with kids, and we know how much easier it is to help a younger patient when they are happy and calm. Children enjoy our flat-screen TVs that helps them stay entertained throughout their visit. Our lobby also features a beverage bar so that they can have something to drink while they wait to see the dentist. Meanwhile, parents appreciate our family scheduling options and our extended hours that make it easy to arrange for an appointment that works for them.
The following pediatric services are available:
We use sealants to help prevent cavities and tooth decay on a child’s back molars. This proven preventive treatment works by applying a thin acrylic coating over the teeth and allowing it to harden. This keeps out the unwanted bacteria and plaque that could otherwise cause harm. Sealants also help children brush more effectively by smoothing out any rough surfaces.
Using fluoride applications to strengthen a child’s tooth enamel is extremely helpful for preventing decay. These applications involve applying fluoride directly to the teeth. The substance will bond with the enamel and help keep teeth strong and healthy. Fluoride may even reverse very early decay. Children who receive fluoride applications early in life have been shown to develop fewer cavities as teenagers and adults.
When a child develops a cavity, they need a restoration that is proven and effective. A dental filling will seal off any voids or holes that develop and prevent harmful bacteria and food particles from accessing the tooth’s inner structure. Another benefit is that a filling will restore a weakened tooth’s structure and strength.
It can be a very troubling experience if your child experiences a sudden oral health problem or injury. Our practice offers emergency dentistry services to restore your child’s smile as quickly as possible. If your child ever needs a crown or a filling on short notice, our team will make every effort to accommodate their needs.
