Our lineup of Pediatric Dentistry services includes:
Dental sealants are a great preventive measure for protecting a child’s molars and premolars from decay. The chewing surface of these teeth have deep, hard-to-clean crevices, so they’re a common place for cavities to occur. By placing a clear plastic coating on these teeth, we can help to ensure that your child’s teeth are protected from bacteria and plaque buildup. This also makes them easier to clean.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help teeth grow stronger and prevent cavities. It supports healthy enamel and helps defend your child’s teeth against decay. The treatment is fast, painless and can be done during a regular checkup.
Should your child develop a cavity, the professionals at Smart Dental can fix this cavity with a tooth-colored composite filling. We can restore your child’s teeth without the need for metal fillings.
Should your child need a crown to help protect a damaged tooth, Smart Dental can provide them with a restoration crafted from porcelain that will both look natural and function normally.
We all know that accidents can happen. Smart Dental is here for when your child has a dental emergency. Our extended hours make it easier and more convenient to treat an emergency should one arise.
Phase 1 orthodontics may be recommended when your child is between six and nine years old and are beginning to lose their baby teeth. We can check and make sure there are no disturbances in jaw growth or problems with the teeth such as misalignment. If there are dental concerns, we can help address them now rather than later. Orthodontic treatment can help create spaces to guide the eruption and development of permanent teeth into the correct positions.
