Here at Skyview Dentistry we believe in providing your children with the best dental care possible by keeping track of their dental development as well as teaching them good hygiene habits that will last a lifetime!
Preventive dentistry consists of procedures and treatments that will allow your child to develop a beautiful and healthy smile. Preventive treatments can range from dental sealants and fluoride applications to orthodontic treatments that can prevent more severe dental problems later on. By diagnosing and treating dental issues this early you can save time and money and make sure your child grows up with a great smile!
Dental fillings, crowns, and teeth extractions are some of the most common restorative procedures in pediatric dentistry. Teeth extractions are only recommended when a tooth has chipped or has been broken beyond repair or as part of an orthodontic treatment. Fillings can help repair a chipped or fractured tooth as well as one that was treated for cavities. And in case of a bigger fracture, a crown can be used to repair and save the tooth from extraction. Restorative procedures will repair your child’s bright smile!
We know kids can get in all kinds of trouble as they grow up and if an injury or trauma should happen because of an accident, we strongly recommend that you seek medical attention immediately. Here at Skyview Dentistry we provide emergency services in such cases, our doctors will see your child as soon as possible and fix any injuries or traumas to their mouth, teeth, tongue, gums, etc.
Dental sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of your child’s molars to protect them and seal the crevices or pores from accumulating food residue or plaque that causes cavities. The sealants are thin, clear plastic sheets that can be easily applied during a routine checkup. Good oral hygiene will protect your teeth and help maintain your sealants, but they can be reapplied when needed.
Fluoride is an important part of a child’s dental health because it helps protect the teeth’s enamel by strengthening it. Fluoride can be found in toothpastes, mouthwash, supplements and in the water we drink. Your child’s teeth can be protected from cavities by applying a special varnish of fluoride to each tooth’s surface. This will help the enamel be stronger and fight off caries. Just like sealants, fluoride applications can be done after a professional cleaning.
