Pediatric Dentistry at White Pine Dental
At White Pine Dental, we understand that the best way to treat dental ailments is in its prevention. When children visit our office in their early years we can find potential problems earlier which makes it easier to treat and repair.
Establishing a positive association in the mind of your child with the dentist's office, we can teach them proper habits and techniques to avoid future dental health problems. We know that if children enjoy the dentist they will continue with regular visits later in life resulting in a better dental health and a better smile for years to come.
Our office provides many pleasant amenities to enhance our patients’ experience, including ceiling-mounted TVs with Netflix to entertain and distract patients. When it comes to dentistry, you and your loved ones deserve a practice that treats you like family. Just like you would, we take the time to educate your child how to brush and floss properly and confirming the practices on following visits. Successful dentistry is a battle won primarily at home, and we're here to equip your child with the tools he needs to win!
Our family and general dental services include:
Comprehensive Exams – We provide examinations with x-rays and digital imaging, hygiene evaluation, complete oral cancer screening and assessment for gum disease. For optimal oral health, exams and cleanings should begin after a child's first tooth erupts - or around his or her first birthday - and continue on a twice-yearly schedule.
Fluoride Treatments – Topical fluoride treatments can help prevent cavities at any age and are of particular importance during the years when permanent teeth are forming and emerging.
Sealants – Dental sealants on premolars and molars form a protective shield over the enamel, preventing tooth decay. Ideal during the cavity-prone ages of six to 14, sealants preserve healthy tooth structure for years to come.
Fillings – It is always important to detect and remove decay promptly to preserve the integrity of the tooth. If cavities are found, our dentists recommend tooth-colored fillings in most cases. We can also replace existing amalgam fillings with composite resin.
Periodontal Treatment – For adults, early signs of gum disease can be treated with painless laser treatments. We also offer to scale and root planning for periodontal disease, as well as gum restoration with the new, non-invasive Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
Cosmetic Dentistry - Teens and adults may benefit from teeth straightening and other techniques to achieve a more attractive smile that is easier to clean.
