At Your Expressions Family Dentistry, we understand how important it is for parents to have a dentist their child can trust. That is why we offer comprehensive pediatric dentistry services to children of all ages. We will work with your child to help them enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Your child should see a dentist every six months. Our team will perform a full exam, take digital X-rays and assess your child’s overall dental health. We will also instruct your child on good oral hygiene habits so that they can brush and floss with confidence.
Dental sealants are thin protective coatings we can apply to the surface of your child’s teeth to prevent cavities. Our dentist recommends dental sealants for children over the age of six to protect their permanent teeth against decay.
Fluoride helps prevent cavities by strengthening the enamel of your child’s teeth against. Regular fluoride applications can also help reverse early tooth decay. Our dentist recommends fluoride treatments for children over the age of six to protect their permanent teeth. Depending on your child’s needs and preferences, we offer fluoride varnish, gel and foam.
Prevention is the best treatment for tooth decay, but we understand that cavities can happen. We offer silver (amalgam) and tooth-colored (composite) fillings to restore your child’s teeth. Our dentist recommends silver fillings to preserve the strength and function of your child’s back teeth and tooth-colored fillings to make repairs on the front teeth.
If your child has experienced severe dental decay or damage, our dentist may recommend a crown. A crown can restore the look, function and strength of your child’s tooth. Crowns can usually be placed in two visits.
Emergencies and injuries can happen when you least expect them. If your child is suffering from a severe toothache or other dental problem, call our office. We offer pediatric emergency dentistry services to help your child feel better right away.
