Our General Dentistry Treatments for Children
Pulpotomy – As baby teeth are smaller tooth decay can spread a lot faster. If the decay involves the nerve tissue of the tooth the dentist might recommend a pulpotomy. A pulpotomy is a treatment that involves removing the infected nerve and placing a medicament on the nerve roots. Then a crown will be placed over the top. Our team know that the dentist can be a scary experience so we will do our best to make your child feel comfortable. We want the procedure to be as stress free as possible.
Space Maintainers – It is important to look after baby teeth as the teeth enable children to eat their first solid foods and these teeth are also involved in speech development. The baby teeth also guide the permanent teeth to grow in the right position. Sometimes teeth can be lost too early which can cause future issues. If that is the case your dentist may suggest a space maintainer. A space maintainer will keep the space of the missing tooth open so the permanent tooth can grow in the correct place. Your dentist can discuss this treatment further during your appointment.
Dental Fluorosis – Fluorosis is a condition that is caused by overexposure to fluoride. This can happen during the time when the permanent teeth are forming. The affected teeth will be discoloured. In early cases, there will be subtle white markings and if it is severe the stains can be yellow or dark brown. To fix this issue your dentist may suggest tooth whitening to remove the stains, crowns or veneers to improve the appearance or bonding which coats the tooth. We offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures to suit different budgets.
Children Orthodontics – Orthodontics are treatments for straightening, moving and aligning teeth. In orthodontics for children early treatment is very important. The earlier these treatments begin the easier the problem is to fix. We offer a variety of treatments including braces, Myobraces and expanders. Braces are comfortable and easy to fit. Myobraces are removable and can solve issues without the need of a fixed brace. Expanders widen the jaw so teeth fit better together. Each one has its own benefits and will suit any budget. We have procedures for any orthodontic issue and will help your child get the best dental care. You can read more on our orthodontics page.
