Our number one goal here at Children’s Dental Group when it comes to cavities in kids is to prevent them in the first place. With the right strategy at home as well as with regular visits to our office, cavities can be kept to a minimum. However, when one does occur, our pediatric dentist will fill the tooth. Our tooth restorations in Carson are designed to keep a decayed tooth whole and viable.

Tooth decay is traced back to plaque, the film-like substance that erodes your child’s tooth enamel. It grows on and between teeth, and even at the gum line. Brushing and flossing are key. Plaque is removed with those methods every single day, but typically not all of it. What remains out of reach of at-home oral hygiene then turns to tartar, the hardened version of plaque. And since tartar can only be efficiently eliminated with a professional cleaning, we recommend a visit to our office every six months to have one, along with a full examination. This includes x-rays, which might reveal the presence of one or more cavities that could benefit from our tooth restorations in Carson. Gentle application of local anesthesia is done so that your child will feel at ease and comfortable as the filling is being placed. Bear in mind that with baby (primary) teeth, they are supposed to fall out naturally on a certain schedule. Our tooth restorations in Carson facilitate that. A severely decayed tooth or one that has become infected might have to be extracted ahead of its normal schedule. Doing so can create complications, as other teeth shift and leave insufficient room for adult (permanent) teeth to grow in.

Schedule your child’s twice-yearly visit to our office right now. And if there is a toothache present, we will ensure that we get you and your child in right away.

In the past, young children were not evaluated for orthodontic issues. Typically, the pre-teen age range was when children were first referred to an orthodontist by their dentist. Today, that’s changed. Interceptive Orthodontics is a very common philosophy and practice in dentistry in which young children are thought to benefit from Carson pediatric braces.

If your child has orthodontic issues due to crowding or spacing, your child may need to get Carson pediatric braces. Today, orthodontic treatment for young children is typically done between the ages of 7 and 11 years of age. If your child has been referred to an orthodontist, it’s best to take him or her to one who specializes in treating young children. In fact, it’s best to get all of your child’s dental care services handled at a pediatric dental practice that specializes in dental care for children. Children have special needs because they are still growing. Pediatric dentists have advanced education and training in child growth and development as it relates to dental care. They understand how to properly care for baby teeth and what is normal at each stage of the growth of their permanent teeth. They also receive training is child psychology and learn how to best relate to their young patients.

Today, interceptive orthodontic care is recommended for children who are developing orthodontic problems. It is recommended that children come in to see our orthodontist at Children’s Dental Group when they are about seven years old to see if they will benefit from any type of Carson braces.

When children need interceptive orthodontic care, treatment for phase one care occurs somewhere between the ages of seven and eleven. During this time, our orthodontist can provide different types of Carson braces and orthodontic appliances to influence the growth of the jaw to make sure that there will be room for all of the child’s permanent teeth when they are ready to erupt. Children who have interceptive orthodontic care generally need to have less involved dental care when they are in their teens. In addition, there usually is much less of a need for the child to have teeth extracted during phase 2 teen care. Our orthodontist can use removable appliances to move certain teeth, hold certain teeth in place, to influence the way the jaws grow, and to influence tooth eruption. These removable appliances can be used in conjunction with fixed appliances. Our orthodontist will talk to you about this process, and how interceptive orthodontic care will benefit your child. If baby teeth fall out prematurely, your child will most likely benefit from a space maintainer. The space maintainer will preserve the space for the tooth which is meant to erupt in this location. This is a primary function of baby teeth, and is one reason why it is so important that baby teeth are able to remain in your child’s mouth for as long as they are needed.
