A child’s dental care regimen should begin as early as possible in order to pave the way for great oral health as they grow from infancy to teenagers and then adulthood. At the office of Complete Family Dentistry, we offer the utmost care and attention to our young patients. Our experts understand the unique oral care needs of children and strive to provide quality dental care in a comfortable, relaxed and interactive environment.
From the time that your child is born, there are many things that you can do to promote healthy teeth and prevent cavities. For babies, cleaning can be done using a soft cloth or baby’s toothbrush. As they grow, and their milk teeth start erupting, you can help them start developing good oral habits and limit sweet snacks and drinks, and encourage healthy and nutritious food instead.
Some of the pediatric dental services that we offer include:
- Dental Cleaning - Dental cleanings can help get rid of hidden plaque and tartar which could cause cavities, gum disease and bad breath in children.
- Fillings: We offer tooth-colored fillings made of composite material. These are a highly effective, more aesthetic, durable and safer alternative to traditional amalgam fillings. They can be closely matched to a shade of the natural color of your child’s teeth.
- Crowns: A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is bonded over a tooth to repair or replace it. Crowns can strengthen and enhance the appearance of a damaged tooth. A crown can also act as a covering for a dental implant to replace a lost tooth. Crowns are also placed over a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy to protect it and prevent it from fracturing.
- Phase 1 orthodontics: This treatment is generally done for children aged between six and ten to correct the alignment of the teeth before all the permanent teeth have erupted.
