What Services Does Atlantic Children & Family Dentistry Offer?
We wide range of pediatric dental services, including:
Dental Cleanings & Exams
We recommend that children have a dental cleaning and exam every six months. During a cleaning, our team will remove any plaque or tartar buildup on your child’s teeth. We will also check for any signs of tooth decay or other problems.
Dental sealants are a thin coating that is applied to the back teeth, which are more susceptible to cavities. The sealant helps to protect the tooth from decay and makes it easier to brush and floss.
Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the treatment of tooth pulp and surrounding tissues. If your child has a tooth that is damaged or infected, we may recommend endodontic treatment.
We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options. If your child is interested in whitening their teeth, we can help them choose the best option for their needs.
We offer traditional braces for children who need them. Traditional braces are made of metal and are attached to the teeth with wire. They are the most common type of braces and are usually the most affordable option.
A retainer is a custom-made mouthpiece that helps to keep the teeth in their new, straight position after braces have been removed. We will discuss whether or not your child needs a retainer after their braces are removed.
Crowns are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, or composite resin. At Atlantic Children & Family Dentistry, we will work with you to select the best material for your needs and budget.
Why is Pediatric Dentistry Important?
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that children see a dentist by their first birthday—and for good reason. Good oral health habits should be instilled at an early age so that children can maintain healthy teeth and gums throughout their lives.
In addition to promoting good oral hygiene habits, pediatric dentists can also detect early signs of dental problems. When caught early, dental problems can be treated quickly and easily—sometimes before they even become dental problems!
