Oral Evaluation & Assessment
The Care You Deserve
For years, patients have depended and trusted me to provide this valuable service. An oral health evaluation involves a thorough examination and assessment of your child's teeth, supporting gingiva, mucosa, and oral cavity.
Low Radiation Digital X-rays
Seeing what the eye cannot
X-rays are valuable aids in the oral healthcare of infants, children, adolescents and individuals with special health care needs. X-rays are used to diagnose and monitor oral diseases, evaluate dentoalveolar trauma as well as monitor dentofacial development and the progress of therapy.
Covering the surface and keeping the plaque away
The chewing surfaces of children’s teeth are the most susceptible to cavities and least benefited by fluorides. Sealants are applied to the tops or chewing surfaces of back teeth and are highly effective in preventing tooth decay. Sealant’s commonly last 3-5 years. Dietary habits such as chewing ice or hard candy can shorten the life expectancy of a sealant. No numbing is required to place them.
Restoring form and function
A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
Pediatric Dental Crowns
Helping You Get Healthy
Stainless steel crowns are prefabricated metal crown forms that are adapted to individual teeth and cemented with a bio-compatible luting agent. Stainless steel crowns have been indicated for the restoration of primary teeth and permanent teeth with extensive caries, cervical decalcification, and or developmental defects, when failure of other materials is likely, following pulp treatment, fractured teeth and for definitive treatment for high caries-risk children
Holding the space for the adult teeth
The premature loss of primary teeth due to caries, trauma, ectopic eruption, or other causes may lead to undesirable tooth movements of primary and /or permanent teeth including loss of arch length. The goal of space maintenance is to prevent the loss of arch length, width, and perimeter by maintaining the relative position of the existing dentition.
