Preventive Dental Care for Children

Preventive dental care can help avoid the pain and discomfort associated with cavities, decay, and gum disease.

Exams and Cleanings

Our friendly dentists will examine your child for signs of decay, cavities, chipped, or cracked teeth. We may use low radiation diagnostic x-rays to detect hidden cavities or impacted baby teeth.

Professional cleaning helps remove tartar and calculus from near the gum line and eliminates bad breath.

Fluoride Treatment

We apply fluoride varnish or foam directly to the tooth, where it sets quickly and hardens. Fluoride treatment can reverse early decay and strengthen tooth enamel.

Sealants

Dental sealants are applied to premolars and molars to form a smooth, protective barrier over the tooth's biting surface. The smooth surface covers ridges, fissures, and grooves that trap food debris and become breeding places for bacteria.

Cavity Treatment for Children

Children often develop cavities due to excessive consumption of sugary and acidic foods like sodas, candies, lollipops, and sticky sweets. Our cheerful dentists at Armstrong-Katzmark DDS may treat the cavity with composite resin fillings or glass ionomer cement.

If the decay has affected the inner layers of the tooth, we may need to perform a pulpotomy to remove the infected nerves.

Braces 

Is your child suffering from embarrassment due to a crooked smile? We fit your child with Invisalign® clear retainers to move misaligned teeth into desired positions.

Extraction

In extreme cases, we may need to extract a severely damaged baby tooth.

Space Maintainers

Space maintainers help in the development and placement of adult teeth.

Mouthguards

We also take precise impressions and get personalized sports mouthguards fabricated for your child’s needs.
