CrownsFirst of all, remain calm. If possible, find the tooth and hold it by the crown rather than the root. Replace the tooth in the socket and hold it there with clean gauze or a washcloth. If you can't put the tooth back in the socket, place the tooth in a clean container with milk and take your child and the glass immediately to the pediatric dentist. The faster you act, the better your chances of saving the tooth.
PulpotomyWhen deep decay reaches the pulp (nerve), the inflamed part of the nerve must be removed and a sedative medication is placed inside the tooth to prevent sensitivity and promote healing. Pulpotomies are very common in children's dentistry due to the large size of the pulp in relation to the tooth size. The pulpotomy is done in one visit and causes no more discomfort than placing a routine filling. Success rate is high. After the pulpotomy is finished the tooth is restored with a stainless steel crown to function normally again and continue to hold the space until the permanent tooth can take its place.

Tooth WhiteningFor our patient’s convenience, our office has an on-site Orthodontist, so that all of our patients dental care needs are performed in one location.
Space MaintainersSpace maintainers are appliances of metal or plastic that are custom fit to your child's mouth. They are small and unobtrusive in appearance. Most children easily adjust to them after the first few days. Space maintainers hold open the empty space left by a lost tooth. They steady the remaining teeth, preventing movement until the permanent tooth takes its natural position in the jaw. It's more affordable and easier on your child being able to keep in normal positions with a space maintainer than to move them back in place with orthodontic treatment.
Dental SealantsSealants are clear or shaded plastic applied to the teeth to help keep them cavity-free. Sealants fill in the grooved and pitted surfaces of the teeth, which are hard to clean, and shut out food particles that could get caught, causing cavities. Fast and comfortable to apply, sealants can effectively protect teeth for many years.
X-raysWith contemporary safeguards, such as lead aprons and high-speed film, the amount of radiation received in a dental X-ray examination is extremely small. Even though there is very little risk, pediatric dentists are particularly careful to minimize the exposure of child patients to radiation. In fact, dental X-rays represent a far smaller risk than an undetected and untreated dental problem.
