Preventive Dental Care
Routine check-ups and cleanings are crucial for patients of all ages, and that includes the littlest members of your family. Dr. Shah and her team are as gentle as possible during these appointments, personalizing our approach to match your child’s level of maturity. We also keep an eye out for any developmental concerns that could cause problems later on for your child’s growing smile. In order to prevent decay, further measures like dental sealants and fluoride treatments can be applied, providing valuable protection for vulnerable teeth and gums.
Some parents think it’s unnecessary to maintain their child’s primary (‘baby’) teeth, as they’re going to fall out eventually. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In addition to helping children develop proper chewing and speech skills, primary teeth help with the development of jaw bones and muscles and save space for permanent teeth. If primary teeth are lost too early, this may result in permanent teeth erupted at a crooked angle.
Restorative Dental Care
Children begin to develop dental problems early in their life. For instance, drinking from a bottle (or the mother’s breast) too long leads to a higher risk of tooth decay, and nearly half of children suffer from inflamed gums. Thankfully, Dr. Shah restores your child’s happy smile with small fillings, periodontal treatment, and other restorative services taking the time to ensure their safety and comfort every step of the way.
