At Beautiful Dentistry, we believe that a healthy smile starts at a young age.
Creating Beautiful Smiles at a Young Age
Getting your son or daughter off on the right track is essential to a lifetime of healthy teeth. That’s why we focus on prevention – to stop problems before they start, and to treat conditions when they are smaller and simpler to manage.
We offer a full menu of pediatric dental services for your family, including:
Cleanings and Exams
Every 6 months, we thoroughly examine and clean your child’s teeth – providing them with a healthy environment that resists decay and gum disease. Our hygienists will also help your son or daughter learn essential oral hygiene methods that set them up for years of healthy smiles.
Pinpointing cavities at an early stage is extremely important. That’s why we take low-radiation digital x-rays on a regular basis for all children. We use these images to screen for cavities, pathology, and eruption patterns that may interfere with your son or daughter’s smile in the future.
Sealants are thin protective layers that coat the deep grooves and pits of the back teeth. They take only a few minutes to apply, and provide your child with years of protection against cavity-causing bacteria.
Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and makes it more resistant to tooth decay. We apply a professional strength fluoride treatment after every cleaning. In some circumstances we may also prescribe a fluoride to use at home.
Fillings, Crowns, and Pulp Therapy
Small fillings prevent cavities from spreading to other teeth (or the developing permanent tooth underneath.) When cavities are large, a pulpotomy and crown can help your child retain his or her natural tooth – preventing early tooth loss and orthodontic concerns later on.
Wearing a custom fitted mouth guard during athletic activities can prevent emergencies, fractured teeth, and even concussions.
