Young patients are warmly welcomed at the office of Modern Day Smiles. We pay special attention to the oral health of children and strive to provide them with a comfortable environment so that they grow up to enjoy and understand the importance of dental visits. Our office has a wide range of preventive, restorative and emergency care treatments for children.
Preventive Care: Dental Sealants and Fluoride Application
Dental sealants are a thin, transparent coating that adheres to the chewing surfaces of back teeth. They are usually made of plastic and offer enhanced protection to your teeth against cavities and bacteria. Along with regular home care, dental sealants have been known to greatly reduce the risk of tooth decay in the back teeth.
We offer fluoride application treatments in varnish form. These help add strength to the enamel and also in reversing early-stage decay.
Restorative Care: Fillings and Crowns
Our office provides tooth-colored fillings made of composite material. Tooth-colored fillings are a great solution to strengthen and restore decayed, chipped and cracked teeth. These are a natural-looking, highly effective, safe and durable alternative to traditional metal-based fillings. Dental crowns are used to protect or replace missing and damaged teeth. They can be used to cover a weak tooth that is fractured, has a very large filling, or has undergone root canal treatment. Dental crowns can even be used to entirely replace a single missing tooth.
Emergency Care for Children
We offer emergency appointments for children to cater to urgent dental care needs such as severe toothaches, dislodged restorations or oral trauma. In emergency situations, call us immediately, and we will happily attend to them and relieve them of pain and discomfort.
