At Queens Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of kids in dentistry. Oral hygiene is a vital part of a child’s overall health. When children learn how to care for their teeth at an early age, they will have much healthier teeth as they grow up. We make sure that children have everything they need for healthy oral hygiene. Our well trained dental staff will assist your child from the time they get their first tooth until they have all their adult teeth and beyond.
We offer children’s dentistry program that is comprehensive and includes the following elements:
Education: We teach and show your little ones how to take care of their teeth so they learn proper oral health habits at an early age. They learn how to brush and floss their teeth and the importance of such. They will also learn about what happens if they don’t brush and floss.
Regular cleanings: Our highly knowledgeable and gentle dental staff will clean your children’s teeth regularly to maintain their health and vitality. Our staff is trained in working with youngsters who may be a bit nervous about dental visits. We make sure your little ones are at ease when they visit our office.
Pit and Fissure Sealants: When kids grow and enter into mixed dentition stage which is usually between the ages of 6 and 13, they get adult teeth erupting alongside or replacing the primary or baby teeth. Adult molars sometimes have deeply grooved biting surfaces which can welcome the food particles to stay there and cause cavities. Sealants are a flowable resin which can seal the deep pits and grooves to prevent them from catching food. We provide sealants for growing molars and premolars and the procedure is simple, easy and needle free!
Fluoride Treatment: Often times fluoride varnish is applied to children’s teeth to protect them from getting cavities. Fluoride is a substance that defends the bacteria and provides more protection to baby and young adult teeth against microorganisms.
Fillings As Needed: Even with regular maintenance, sometimes children will get cavities.In such cases, we fill the cavity using the best methods and equipment. Our team is well experienced and good with kids to make them comfortable and explain to them everything in the language kids can understand.
Extraction of Baby Teeth: Primary teeth resorb over time and get replaced by adult teeth. Sometimes primary teeth are extensively decayed or fractured or non-restorable and they end up being extracted. We do all types of teeth extractions in children under local anaesthetic. Nitrous Oxide is often used for more comfort.
Continuous Evaluation of Growing Children: As your child grows, we will monitor the way their adult teeth are coming in and how their bite looks. We address any issues that arise and nip them in the bud through corrective measures.
Preventative Measures: Space maintainers are one of the commonly used appliances in children to prevent the space for adult teeth following the early loss of primary teeth. Mouthguards are great gear for children who are involved in sports. We make custom fabricated appliances to protect your children’s teeth and jaws and in the best way possible.
