About Family Dentistry
Our doctors believe that a trip to the dentist should be fun, lighthearted, and not something to fear. The way your child is exposed to dentistry lays the groundwork for how they view dental care and dental visits for the rest of their lives.
Our doctors and his team love caring for their patients, and work hard to make sure each child is spoken to gently, treated with respect, and cared for as if they were our own child. We use simple words to explain procedures to our patients and make sure each parent or guardian is aware of the process as well.
INFANT ORAL EXAMS
Studies have shown that the earlier a child receives their first dental exam, the less dental treatment was needed during their youth. We recommend oral exams for children when their first tooth erupts.
CHILDREN'S CLEANINGS & EXAMS
Routine cleanings and exams are necessary to make sure your child’s teeth stay healthy throughout childhood. Our doctor recommends two cleanings a year to maintain optimal oral health.
Digital x-rays allow our doctor to get a view of your child’s teeth and jaws that they can’t see with their eyes, while keeping radiation exposure to a minimum.
Regular fluoride treatments help reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities and can remineralizer areas where decay is starting. Our doctor believes regular fluoride treatments are an important part of treatment for most children.
Frenectomies are a valuable procedure that corrects tongue-tie and prevents future periodontal problems caused by tissue pulling on the lip or gums. Our doctors can perform this procedure in-office with just a little anesthetic.
SILVER DIAMINE FLUORIDE (SDF)
Silver Diamine Fluoride, or SDF, is a safe, noninvasive treatment that can stop decay in its tracks postponing the need for a permanent restoration, at least for a little while.
Restorative dentistry includes fillings, crowns and other procedures that help restore a tooth to its original function. Office of Dr. Ress, Dr Jain and Dr. Nayaki offers many restorative procedures to help your child smile with confidence!
Health Tips & Info
Another significant factor in your oral health is your diet. Acidic foods and drinks can erode enamel just as a balanced diet can help keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy. Regular professional exams and cleanings, a dedicated at-home hygiene routine, and a healthy, balanced diet can help prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.
