Here at Gateway Pediatric Dentistry, we offer a wide variety of treatment to suit your child’s needs. We offer restorative treatment, such as stainless steel crowns, various types of fillings, extractions, pulpotomies/pulpectomies and much more, depending on your child’s needs. All of these treatments allow us to correct the damage on your child’s teeth in a way that is comfortable and visually appealing, and it is important to us that we make sure that you understand and are comfortable with all the procedures being done for your child.
We also offer preventative treatment, such as white Zirconia, stainless steel crowns, sealants, fluoride, and oral hygiene education. Dental sealants are a plastic coating painted on the teeth. The protective coating attaches to your child’s teeth, smoothing the rough edges, depressions, and grooves that are typically found on teeth. This helps to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Fluoride treatments help strengthen your child’s teeth and prevent tooth decay. Our fluoride treatments are done as a varnish on your child’s teeth. This procedure is quick and painless, taking only a couple minutes.
We will also help your child understand how best to take care of their teeth, and encourage them to prioritize their oral hygiene in order to prevent cavities. Oral health is one of the most important aspects of your child’s overall health, and as such, it is important that your child understands the best ways to take care of their teeth. The keys to oral health have not changed: good oral hygiene requires brushing your teeth twice a day, cleaning between your teeth daily, replacing your toothbrush regularly, and eating a healthy diet. Another component to good long-term oral health is regular dentist visits for exams and cleanings.
