Dental Cleanings and Exams
Just because their baby teeth won’t be there forever doesn’t mean that they don’t deserve the proper care that adult teeth get. Their baby teeth are holding spaces for their permanent teeth that will erupt as they get older. Dr. Warren encourages parents to bring their kids in for either their first birthday or by the time their first tooth emerges. Getting ahead of the curve when it comes to dental care will only improve their teeth and gums as they grow up. These visits will also create a healthy and comfortable relationship between your family and Dr. Warren, encouraging ideal oral hygiene.
During the dental exam, Dr. Warren takes a look at your child’s teeth and gums, advising parents if anything requires proper intervention. X-Rays are highly recommended to view common issues like decay since areas below the gums aren’t visible to the naked eye. With the help of x-rays, we’re able to identify any complicated issues regarding dental alignment. We’ll also share helpful tips for brushing and flossing your children’s teeth since they haven’t learned the proper motor skills yet. If we’re able to detect any issues early and begin treatment, we reduce the potential for crooked teeth and complications.
Restorative Dental Care
Poor hygiene, diet, injury, or other dental trauma will affect your child’s dental health. Thankfully, our Bridgeport pediatric dentist has restorative services like fillings, crowns, and extractions to either save the tooth or protect their surrounding teeth. It’s important to preserve as many natural teeth as possible for ideal dental and oral health as they grow older.
Dr. Warren offers tooth-colored fillings, which are extremely strong and durable. They’ll typically last longer than the tooth it’s been placed on, but it maintains the structure of their tooth and keeps the area healthy for the incoming permanent tooth. We also offer crowns if necessary, in case the fillings aren’t enough to protect the tooth.
If your child’s tooth cannot be saved, we recommend performing an extraction. Allowing a decayed tooth to remain in place will damage their gums and surrounding teeth, which will also negatively affect their incoming permanent teeth. We encourage you to ask us any questions about your child’s smile if they’re suffering from a decayed tooth.
