The First Visit:

Children must attend a consultation 6 months after the appearance of the first tooth or before the first year of age.This will allow them to adapt early to the dental office and not have fears in the future.

In addition, education in oral hygiene practices helps children to acquire good habits.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FIRST APPOINTMENT?

The first appointment will be the most important experience, so it is an appointment where you seek to entertain and educate the child through games and visual aids.

In the waiting room, the children are adapted so that they feel confident enough to enter the room. Then, the dentist performs an oral examination to review every detail, explaining the findings to the parents and establishing the treatment.

The first visit will end with a small surprise gift that reinforces the behavior of the kid.

PROCEDURES WE PERFORM

For children we offer the following procedures:

PREVENTIVE TREATMENTS

The best option for your child to have good oral health is to prevent the
appearance of disease

In our clinic we offer the promotion and prevention service for oral diseases.

For children we offer the following procedures:

DENTAL CLEANINGS:

These are very important to take care of your teeth and gums, before starting the cleaning, the dentist will perform an examination to check the presence of cavities, bacterial plaque and tartar. Then he will perform a cleaning that includes the removal of bacterial plaque and dental calculus which is the hardened plaque. These procedures are done with a motorized brush and prophy paste. Without the child feeling pain or discomfort.

FLUORIDE APPLICATION:

Fluoride treatment is used to help prevent cavities. The fluoride will work by concentrating on the teeth and strengthening the most superficial layer of them (the enamel). It is recommended to do it every 6 months.

DENTAL SEALANTS:

The teeth have pits where food debris can lodge that could cause cavities. To avoid this, the dentist will apply dental sealants to fill these pits. This is a painless treatment.

RESTORATIVE TREATMENTS.

The best option for your child to have good oral health is to
prevent the appearance of diseases.

Dental Fillings

If your child has a color change in his teeth such as brown spots or a cavity, he may have tooth decay.

White dental fillings are used to restore the damaged tooth. 
These adhere to the tooth through an adhesive that makes them much more durable.

Dental Crowns

When the loss of tooth structure is too large, a dental crown is the best option, with it the tooth will look like the rest of  the healthy teeth and will also protect it. 

It is generally indicated 
after pulp therapy.

Remember that the best option will always be to prevent the appearance of cavities,
so preventive treatment should be carried out on a regular basis.

Pulp therapy

The pulp therapy aims to preserve the tooth that is affected.  When the internal pulp inside the teeth is exposed it will suffer inflammation or infection, therefore it must be removed and replaced.

A painless treatment

In order to carry out this process in the safest and most peaceful way for your child, at Smile on the Hudson 
we have     a team trained for dental sedation.

Once the child is sedated, the location where we will perform the treatment is numbed and this way we make sure 
that they do not feel any discomfort.

WHAT WILL BE DONE
DURING THE PROCEDURE?

The dentist will extract the damaged pulp using specialized instruments, clean the canals of the tooth and once it is free of infected tissue, the tooth will be sealed inside with a filling material. The dental crown for children will be the last material to restore it and give the tooth its natural shape back.

EXTRACTIONS

In the following circumstances it will be necessary to perform a dental extraction in children.

Milk teeth should only be extracted when necessary, as they are important for chewing and for indicating the position of the other.
