What parent doesn’t want a child who has and always will enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile?
Instead of treating dental problems, preventive care focuses on preventing issues before they happen. Our dental team will help your child avoid tooth decay, gum disease, and enamel wear. We keep the price of perfect health low with our fun and sensitivity-free dental cleanings.
Our assistants administer cleanings that will keep your child’s smile fresh, white, and healthy. They will make the process easy and enjoyable for your children. They can also place BPA-free sealants over molars in order to ward off cavities.
If you’re worried about the radiation levels that affect your child when they have x-rays taken, you don’t have to worry anymore. We can put those fears at ease with our digital x-ray machine, which is the safest and most efficient type of x-ray on the market.
Dr. Bhaumik will first look at your child’s teeth and gums. While he assesses your child’s oral health, he will tell your child how great his or her teeth look and give his recommendations. At Stonebrook Pediatric Dentistry, we promise to make your child’s cleaning easy and anxiety free.
During the examination, Dr. Bhaumik will discuss his visual and x-ray findings. In the unfortunate event of a cavity, he will discuss your treatment options with you and your child. Together, you can decide which form of treatment will best suit your child’s needs. Whether your child needs a filling, crown, or a sports mouth guard, we will make the treatment process efficient and simple.
Stay up-to-date on your kid’s health by visiting frequently for oral examinations. We recommend exams and cleanings every 6 months. We promise to make your child’s visit with us as entertaining and relaxing as possible. Give us a call today to schedule your little one’s appointment.
Dental sealants are an inexpensive way to fortify your child’s teeth against decay. Sealants can effectively prevent your child from experiencing cavities and toothaches, or from needing extensive dental work. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry reports that with appropriate follow-up care and maintenance, sealants can be 80-90% effective in reducing cavity formation.
Dental sealants are placed into the fissures of the chewing surfaces of the teeth, especially in the molar area.
Dental sealants fill in the grooves of the teeth that often hide food and bacteria. Sealants make it impossible for the food to build up in the fissures of the teeth by “sealing” it out.
Now, with the option of BPA-free dental sealants, all parents should consider this protective measure for their children.
Dr. Bhaumik would be happy to help you decide if dental sealants are a good idea for your child. To learn more about our BPA-free sealants, call us to schedule a consultation today!
