We always look forward to working with younger patients and putting them on the right track for great oral health. The dental care specialists at Sango Family Dentistry are here to ensure your child achieves a beautiful smile that provides the confidence they deserve.
Maintaining one’s oral health is a lifelong endeavor that starts at an early age. Studies have shown that people who receive proper dental care in their younger years are much more likely to maintain positive oral health into adulthood. At Sango Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of pediatric dentistry, and we work very hard to ensure that we always provide the best treatments and services for children and teens. Remember, the earlier your child gets started making regular dental visits, the easier it will be for them to maintain their oral health moving forward. Our lineup of pediatric services includes sealants, fluoride applications, fillings, crowns and emergency dentistry.
We do everything possible to ensure that our younger patients are kept comfortable, entertained and relaxed during their visits. Our lobby features a children’s play area so that kids can be kept occupied while they wait for their appointment. All of our patient rooms include a flat-screen TV with Netflix to help your child stay amused while we work to examine and clean their teeth. We also know that many younger children are nervous or scared about making a dental visit. Blankets and pillows can be provided to your child to help them alleviate their fears and remain calm and relaxed. Meanwhile, parents will appreciate our family scheduling options that make it as easy as possible to set up appointments for the entire family.
Sealants are a preventive dental treatment that can help protect your child’s teeth from the oral bacteria and plaque that causes cavities and decay. This treatment involves applying a thin layer of acrylic plastic coating over the teeth and allowing it to harden to form a barrier. Sealants are incredibly safe and highly effective in protecting a young person’s teeth.
Professional fluoride applications involve applying fluoride directly to a person’s teeth for the purpose of strengthening tooth enamel and reversing the early effects of tooth decay. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has many proven benefits for teeth. By receiving fluoride treatments early in life, a child is less likely to experience tooth decay later on. The application is quick and painless.
A dental filling is a dental restoration that is used to repair teeth that have developed cavities or some other minor form of tooth decay. This restoration is very easy to provide, and it is highly effective in repairing teeth with minor damage. Our practice offers composite fillings that are safe and natural-looking.
Dental crowns are used to restore teeth with more extensive damage that cannot be repaired with fillings. Many children need to receive dental crowns due to an injury or other oral health problem. Our dental crowns look remarkably natural, and they offer the same great functionality as healthy natural teeth.
Emergency dentistry refers to dental treatment that is provided with short to little notice. The most common reason for a child to require emergency dental treatment is due to a sudden injury that affects their oral health or their overall appearance. Our experts will work to provide the most effective emergency treatment possible and help your child remain calm during this potentially scary event.
