Easy Breezy Kids Dental

Dental Exams

During a dental exam, the dentist  will check for cavities and gum disease. The dentist o will also evaluate your risk of developing other oral health problems, as well as check your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities.


Cleanings

Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease.


Fluoride

Fluoride treatments help to prevent decay in both children and adults. Anyone who is at risk of dental decay is a good candidate for topical fluoride treatments. This fluoride is applied directly to the teeth.


Fillings

A dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma.


Sealants

A dental sealant is a thin plastic film painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent cavities.


Baby Root Canal Therapy

Decay that has reached the nerve/pulp of the baby tooth. The dentist will access the nerve chamber of the tooth, and remove some of the nerve/pulp of the tooth to place medicine.


Crowns

The pediatric dentist shapes the child's tooth to the necessary shape and then trims a stainless steel crown The crown is cemented on and will keep the tooth intact until the tooth loss occurs naturally.


Extractions

As dentists, our main goal is to preserve your natural teeth and keep them healthy for as long as possible. There are times, however, when it is in the best interest of your child to have a tooth extracted (removed). This could be the case for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you have a tooth that has been severely damaged by trauma or decay.


Space Maintainers

Space maintainers help “hold space” for permanent teeth. Your child may need one if he or she loses a baby tooth prematurely, before the permanent tooth is ready to erupt. If a primary tooth is lost too early, adult teeth can erupt into the empty space instead of where they should be. When more adult teeth are ready to come into the mouth, there may not be enough room for them because of the lost space. To prevent this from happening, the dentist may recommend a space maintainer to hold open the space left by the missing tooth.


Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax.Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. It is not intended to put you to sleep.


Oral Sedation

Oral medication used for sedation purposes produces a light to moderate effect depending on the strength of the prescription. Oral sedation usually comes in the form of a pill taken or liquid and is taken  an hour before the procedure. Although you'll be able to respond to your dentist's commands, you may feel sleepy. Recovery time will take longer, and you'll need an escort to drive you home. Although rare, side effects may include nausea and vomiting.
