When a filling is not a viable solution to correcting the damage sustained by a tooth, crowns can provide a long-term solution to restoring the function of your teeth and enhancing the appearance of your smile.
Many parents are surprised to find out that the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children visit a pediatric dentist by the time they are one year of age. This is because tooth decay is the most common early childhood chronic disease.
Dental sealants are commonly placed on a child’s adult molars, as soon as they erupt, in order to help prevent cavities. Sealants are a resin-based material that is applied to the chewing surface of a tooth.
Between the ages of two and four, most children will naturally stop sucking their fingers, thumbs, or other objects. When children continue these habits for a longer period of time, their teeth may be affected, resulting in the need for early orthodontic treatment.
A frenectomy is a surgical procedure that removes or loosens a band of tissue (frenum) that is connected to the lip, cheek or tongue. With innovative technology, most patients are back to complete normal function within a few days
Early Childhood Caries is the most common chronic childhood disease. It is defined as the presence of 1 or more decayed, missing or filled tooth surfaces in any primary (baby) tooth in a child under the age of 6 years old.
