Our lineup of pediatric services include:
Dental sealants are a thin coating that is painted over the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They establish a barrier that protects teeth from damage caused by bacteria and plaque that can get stuck in the uneven surfaces of these teeth. They also make teeth easier to clean by creating a smoother surface. Sealants are quick and painless to apply and can usually be completed during a regular checkup.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can be found in water and in certain foods. Although we do obtain small amounts of fluoride through eating and drinking, using more concentrated amounts has proven benefits for teeth. Applying fluoride directly to teeth will strengthen them and reverse the effects of early tooth decay.
Invisalign clear aligners offer an effective and discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. When treating orthodontic issues with Invisalign, you will wear a series of custom-fitted, clear aligners over your teeth. The aligners will slowly adjust the positioning of the teeth and jaw. Each aligner is replaced with a new one approximately every two weeks until treatment is complete. The aligners are removable which means there are no diet limitations. You will also be able to brush and floss normally; however, it is important to know that they must be worn a minimum of 20-22 hours per day to be effective. Patients appreciate Invisalign because they are comfortable and virtually invisible.
A dental filling is an effective treatment method for repairing damage caused by a cavity or other minor damage. We provide composite tooth-colored fillings that look natural.
Sometimes, when the damage is too great to repair your child’s tooth with a filling, a dental crown is necessary. If this is the case, you can count on our team to provide a top-quality restoration.
We understand that it’s scary when your child experiences a sudden dental issue. Whether it’s a sports injury or a toothache, we will do everything possible to see your child quickly. While you’re here, we will help your child remain comfortable while we provide any necessary care. If your child ever requires dental treatment on short notice, call the experts at Cholla Family Dentistry.
