Pediatric dentistry focuses on the oral care needs of children from infancy to teenagers. At the office of Falls Lake Dental, we understand that children are unique, and their developing teeth demand special care. That is why our experts take all the extra time needed to help our youngest patients feel comfortable while we help them achieve and maintain great dental health.
It is essential for your child to see a pediatric dentist at a very early age, ideally before his or her first birthday. Early visits and examinations allow early detection of issues such as tooth decay and enable us to administer early treatment, preventing the need for more extensive care later in life.
Listed below are some of the pediatric dental services offered at our practice:
Sealants: Your child’s back teeth (molars) have indentations and ridges on their surface. These become prime spots for decay since they can house food debris and bacteria. Dental sealants offer protection against cavities and decay by smoothing out the rough surface of the teeth. They are often applied to the first permanent molars that erupt in a child’s mouth.
Fillings: Dental fillings are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by cavities.
Fluoride Applications: Fluoride treatment prevents cavities and can even repair early cases of tooth decay. We offer professional fluoride application treatments for kids in varnish form.
Emergency Dentistry: Our practice offers emergency appointments for urgent dental needs. We can provide immediate action to help save a tooth, avoid infection and minimize pain.
