Braces are an orthodontic appliance used to straighten teeth and correct bad bites. Braces can be prescribed for teens, adults, and children who have permanent teeth.
Healthy teeth are key in ensuring your child is healthier and happier. Your pediatric dentist may recommend fluoride treatment in order to prevent tooth decay and maintain healthy teeth.
Similar to braces, clear aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets.
Routine dental checkups are vital to good oral hygiene and are the best way to detect problems at their earliest stages which saves unnecessary discomfort, time, and money.
The American Association of Orthodontists advocates the use of mouth guards by children and adults during organized and recreational sporting activities.
Pulp therapy aims to repair the damage and preserve any healthy pulp so that your child’s primary tooth remains intact until it naturally falls out.
Retainers are most commonly prescribed after the recommended treatment period for braces. The retainer helps keep your teeth from moving back to their original position.
Made of clear or shaded plastic, sealants are applied to the teeth to help keep them cavity-free.
When a baby tooth is lost too early, your pediatric dentist may recommend a space maintainer to prevent future space loss and dental problems.
Restorative dentistry aims to repair damage to the tooth’s surface or enamel, and restore the function and esthetics of your child’s teeth.
