Common Dental Procedures For Children | Best Kids Dentist - Pediatric Dentistry Brooklyn

Last updated 6 years ago

Pediatric dentistry, an important part of any healthy childhood, entails many services and procedures. From cleaning a child’s teeth to keeping them clean and straightening them out, a kid’s dentist lays the groundwork for a healthy future full of bright smiles. Here are some of the more common procedures that pediatric dentists perform to keep your kid’s teeth clean and healthy:

Cleaning:

Ideally done every six months, a professional teeth cleaning takes care of all of the hard-to-reach plaque and bacteria that was missed by daily brushing and flossing and prepares teeth for another six months of good dental health.

Sealants:

Dental sealants, as recommended by many pediatric dentists, consist of a thin protective coating applied to the more cavity prone teeth. This can be a great help to children between the ages of 6 and 14, whose eating and brushing habits make them more likely to get cavities.

Fillings:

Despite regular brushing, dental visits, and sealants, some children will end up getting cavities or tooth decay. When this happens, a pediatric dentist will have to fill the hole created by bacteria to prevent further damage to the tooth or nerve.

Braces:

Pediatric orthodontists can apply braces to correct many problems with a child’s dental structure. Crowded teeth, gaps, crossbites, and overbites are all issues that the best kids’ orthodontists will be able to fix with the use of braces.  Proper orthodontics will ensure that your child has a healthy jaw and a beautiful smile going into adulthood.
