The goal of positive oral health is an endeavor that starts early in life. By providing proper dental care for your children early on, they will have the best chance of maintaining their beautiful smiles for a lifetime.
Pediatric dentistry refers to dental treatments provided for children and teens. Just like adults, it is crucial that younger patients make regular dental visits at least twice per year. These visits allow our dentists to monitor your child’s teeth for any new or developing problems and to remove any harmful accumulations of tartar and plaque. Remember, the best way to achieve great oral health is to keep up with regular visits and treatments before any major problems occur. Our pediatric services include sealants, fluoride applications, fillings, crowns and emergency dentistry.
We work hard to ensure that every child and teen who visits Broadway Dental is kept as comfortable as possible. Our warm and inviting environment and family-friendly atmosphere are perfect for younger patients, and our entire staff will work hard to help your little one feel welcome. You will also appreciate our family scheduling options and our extended hours that make it easier to find time to bring in your child. Whether your child needs preventive treatment, a restoration, or just a routine checkup, our team is ready to help.
Sealants are a preventive dental treatment that involves applying an acrylic plastic coating over the teeth. This coating seals out the tartar, bacteria and plaque that could otherwise access the teeth and cause damage. Many children have sealants applied to their primary baby teeth to keep them healthy while they develop proper brushing and flossing techniques. This can go a long way towards preventing cavities and decay.
Fluoride applications involve applying fluoride directly to a person’s teeth. This substance will strengthen tooth enamel and can reverse the early effects of tooth decay. By receiving fluoride applications early in life, the substance can bond with the child’s teeth and help prevent tooth decay later on.
Dental fillings are commonly provided for children, who often experience more cavities than adults. Fillings are dental restorations that are designed to repair cavities and other variations of minor tooth decay. We use a composite filling material that is applied directly to the damaged or decayed tooth. This substance will add to the tooth’s structure and provide a complete restoration.
Many children will receive a dental crown following an injury or accident that damages an original tooth. A crown can also be used to protect a tooth when a cavity is too large for a traditional filling. Each crown is custom-designed to appear as natural as possible. A crown will “cap” the existing structure and serve as the bulk of the tooth.
Emergency dentistry is dental treatment that is provided on very short notice. The most common reason for a child to require emergency dentistry is due to an accident or injury. We offer emergency services for chipped and cracked teeth, crowns, fillings and more. Our team will do everything possible to restore your child’s tooth so that they can get back to enjoying life.
