Young children's teeth are more vulnerable to damage and decay since they are softer and more vulnerable than adult teeth. Furthermore, children may be more prone to certain oral health issues and oral habits like thumb sucking. This is why ensuring your child receives routine pediatric dental care is important.
At Venetian Pointe Dentistry, our dentists provide pediatric dentistry services to prevent, diagnose, and manage oral health issues in children, including infants, adolescents, and teenagers. They create personalized treatment plans to address any issues and also help your child develop good oral hygiene habits for a life-long healthy smile.
Our pediatric dentists perform comprehensive dental examinations to assess the overall oral health of children. They examine the teeth, gums, and other oral structures to detect dental issues or abnormalities.
Our pediatric dentists use fillings to treat cavities, which are very common in children. For this procedure, the dentist first removes the decayed portion of the tooth and then restores the tooth with filling material, such as tooth-colored composite resin.
Our pediatric dentists often apply dental sealants to children's permanent back teeth. Sealants are thin plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth to protect them from decay-causing bacteria and food particles.
Regular visits to a pediatric dentist enable early detection of dental issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, bite problems, and oral developmental concerns. Early intervention can prevent the progression of dental issues, minimize the need for extensive treatments, and promote proper growth and development of the teeth and jaws.
Our pediatric dentists emphasize preventive care to maintain optimal oral health in children. They provide dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants to protect against tooth decay. They also educate children and parents about the importance of good oral hygiene practices, healthy eating habits, and other habits that promote oral health.
