Providing gentle, high-quality treatment for children and teens is one of our top priorities at Dentistry of East Sacramento. A lifetime of oral health starts at an early age, and our experienced team is ready to help our youngest patients every step of the way.
We know our young patients will enjoy flat-screen TVs in our patient rooms along with comfortable blankets and pillows. We also offer family scheduling options to make it convenient for you to get your child in for a visit. If you are looking for the best dentist to bring your child for top-notch dental care, look no further than Dentistry of East Sacramento. We offer a variety of dental care treatments for children. Some of these are:
Sealants: Sealants are a thin, transparent layer of plastic which can be applied to the grooves and depressions in the chewing teeth to help prevent cavities. The placement of sealants can decrease the chances of tooth decay by nearly seventy percent, preventing the need for extensive restorations and treatments later in life.
Fluoride Applications: Topical fluoride applications help to strengthen the enamel of a child’s developing teeth. Fluoride, when administered in the right amounts, can strengthen the teeth and even reverse very early decay.
Fillings: Composite or tooth-colored fillings are made of resin material and are used for restoring the health, aesthetics, and function of teeth that are affected by decay. We recommend the use of composite fillings due to the host of advantages they offer.
Crowns: A crown is a covering or cap shaped like a tooth. It can be used when a single tooth is deeply damaged or is missing. Crowns can act as protective coverings for deeply decayed teeth, broken or fractured teeth, teeth that have undergone treatment for a root canal infection, and teeth that have very large fillings.
Emergency Dentistry: We offer emergency dental appointments for children in cases where they need immediate professional attention. This could include situations such as trauma and injury, a dislodged tooth and broken fillings.
