Preventative Dentistry  Spanish Fort, AL

Preventative Dentistry

We recommend routine dental cleanings for several reasons. When we perform a professional cleaning, we remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. We also clean the parts of your child’s teeth that are hard to reach, such as underneath the gums.

After a cleaning, we will polish your child’s teeth so that they shine! We can also apply a fluoride treatment, if necessary, to help prevent tooth decay.

Oral Health Exams  Spanish Fort, AL

Oral Health Exams

We truly believe that regular dental examinations are important in order for your child to have good dental health and a smile of which he or she can be proud. We start by doing a professional cleaning, removing all of the bad tartar and other buildup on your child’s teeth.

We then do an examination, looking to catch and fix any problems before they become bigger ones. We examine each tooth, looking for any signs of decay, damage, or any other problems, such as signs of infection. We want to correct any problems your child may have before they get any worse.

Sedation Dentistry  Spanish Fort, AL

Sedation Dentistry

One of the most commonly used types of sedation is nitrous oxide, which is also known as laughing gas. This helps many children relax during their procedure.

Nitrous oxide is a combination of two different gases–-oxygen and nitrous oxide. We administer the gas through a small mask placed over your child’s nose. The gas will make your child relax without the full effect of anesthesia.

Silver Diamine Fluoride  Spanish Fort, AL

Silver Diamine Fluoride

We believe that fluoride works well to strengthen children’s teeth. It also has been shown to help prevent tooth decay in people of all ages.

For this reason, the American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Medical Association believe that topical fluoride is necessary for good oral health.

Because of this, you may be wondering if your child needs fluoride treatments. Often water is enhanced with fluoride, so additional fluoride treatments are not necessary.

Emergency Dental Care  Spanish Fort, AL

Emergency Dental Care

It is very important to be prepared in case your child has an emergency. Even though we wish that they wouldn’t, emergencies do happen. Being educated and knowing what to do in an emergency can be the difference between losing and saving a tooth. You also need to know your dentist’s phone number.

You need to contact us right away if you are having an emergency! If we are not open, go to the nearest emergency center.

Cavities & Fillings  Spanish Fort, AL

Cavities and Fillings

Dental fillings are used to treat different dental problems like cavities and broken teeth. Teeth are usually filled with a material called composite resin, which is designed to look like natural teeth. Fillings can also be done with gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam.

Composite resin takes a little longer, though most people still prefer it because it creates natural-looking teeth. It takes more than one layer, and a special light is used to harden the area around the filling.

Sealants  Spanish Fort, AL

Sealants

Dental sealant is a plastic coating painted on your teeth. It attaches to your child’s teeth, smoothing the rough edges, depressions, and grooves that are typically found on teeth. It gives your child’s teeth a protective coating, helping to prevent tooth decay and cavities.

Sealants are usually done on the back teeth since they are hard to reach and very irregular. Even if your child brushes and flosses properly, he or she may miss some areas. For this reason, sealants are a good way to protect your child’s teeth.

Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions can be necessary for many reasons. Some teeth are too diseased to save. There are times when a tooth is too damaged. We might also remove teeth if your child’s mouth is overcrowded.

We will always do a thorough examination with X-rays to determine the best course of action for your child. We will go through your options so we can make the right decision for your child.

If we decide your child needs an extraction, we will numb the area prior to starting. We will then pull the tooth. There is usually a small amount of bleeding because the mouth will form a blood clot to fix the area.

Special Needs Dentistry

Special needs patients require dental work too. They deserve to find a dentist and staff who are compassionate. They need a dentist who is understanding and able to work with them to ensure that their mouths are healthy. Our dentists have had special training with children who have special issues like cleft lip and palate, childhood cancer, autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and other genetic and medical disorders.
