Finding and treating problems early is important for developing a healthy natural smile, which is why at Southard Family Dental we use low radiation x-rays to allow us to find cavities and irregularities that aren’t visible during the exam. This helps us prevent the spreading of small problems into larger more complicated problems that a child shouldn’t have to deal with at that young of an age.
Dental sealants are a great way to prevent cavities and make it easier to clean your child’s teeth. Sealants are a safe and tested method that can reduce cavities by 80% the first two years after being applied and 50% even 4 years later! The application is painless, only takes a few minutes, and is a cost-effective treatment that can save you hundreds of dollars in the long run while protecting your child’s smile.
At Southard Family Dental, our first priority is the health and longevity of your child’s teeth and smile, which is why we preserve as much tooth structure as possible. Our minimally invasive teeth colored fillings are designed with far less changes to natural teeth to provide an aesthetic and healthy look.
Maintaining routine checkups is important in the early childhood stages to encourage proper oral hygiene and recommend changes in habits or diet. Checkups also allow us to screen for cavities and any irregularities. We will also clean your child’s teeth gently and when needed, apply fluoride to promote and strengthen tooth development.
Our goal at Southard Family Dental is to preserve and maintain healthy teeth and gum tissues. In order to prevent any developmental issues down the line we try to take care of problems are early as possible. Severely decayed teeth can cause changes to the function and bite of your child’s teeth. We are able to manage severe decay with pulp treatments and placing a temporary crown until the child’s tooth is ready to fall out naturally. We are fully committed to provide the best experience for both you and your children. We also offer sedation solutions such as nitrous oxide to assist with any anxiety to help overcome any fears your child may have.
