DRILL-FREE CAVITY TREATMENT

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) uses a blend of ammonia, silver, water, and fluoride to halt the progression of cavities. If you do not want to have your child’s tooth filled because it will likely fall out soon, or they’re too young to get a filling, SDF is a great option. However, it is typically only used on baby teeth, because SDF stains the tooth black permanently.

SPACE MAINTAINERS
SPACE MAINTAINERS

If your child loses a baby tooth prematurely, a space maintainer might be necessary. As the name suggests, a space maintainer is attached to your child’s healthy teeth, and maintains the proper gap between them, preventing crowding or shifting of the teeth which would make it difficult for the adult tooth to erupt properly.

FRENECTOMIES
FRENECTOMIES

A frenectomy is the best way to resolve tongue and lip ties (ankyloglossia). In this condition, the bands of tissue attached to the lips or tongue are excessively thick, which can interfere with breastfeeding, eating, and speech. A frenectomy is used to snip these bands of tissue, and restore the proper range of motion to your child’s tongue or lips.

BITE ASSESSMENT
BITE ASSESSMENT

The alignment of your teeth is vital to long-term oral health. Teeth that are in alignment work together to make speaking, chewing, smiling, and singing easier without causing unnecessary wear and tear on teeth and joints. We check your child's bite as it develops to spot any issues before problems arise.

Frequently Asked Questions

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that kids see a dentist by their first birthday. Why? Because early, frequent visits to the dentist let your child become more familiar with the process, ensure your dentist can track their oral health as they grow, and reduce the likelihood that they will develop dental anxiety later in life.

It can be useful to read some children’s books or watch kids videos about dentistry before coming in for your child’s visit, so that they can learn a little bit about the basics, and what to expect.

We recommend a morning appointment, so that your child won’t be cranky or tired. Be positive before going to the dentist. Kids can sense how you feel, so if you’re nervous, they will be nervous. Use positive reinforcement, and make sure your child feels comfortable while waiting for their appointment.
