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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
