Pediatric Dental Procedures We Offer at Rio Rancho Family Dental Care
Dental sealants are acrylic restorations applied to the occlusal grooves. They help seal off the teeth to prevent decay and significantly reduce the chances of your child developing cavities.
The sealant doesn’t affect your child’s bite and, since it is made from tooth-colored materials, it is unnoticeable.
Orthodontic treatments are required when children have tooth alignment issues or are likely to develop malocclusion. When carried out at a younger age, they render better results.
At Rio Rancho Family Dental Care, we offer a multitude of pediatric orthodontic treatments including dental braces and Invisalign.
Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens the teeth and increases their resistance to cavities. The body receives the ideal amount of fluoride from tap water and toothpaste.
If fluoride levels are still low, a simple way to replenish them is through fluoride treatment. At Rio Rancho Family Dental Care, we use a topical fluoride gel for this process and complete the treatment in just one dental visit.
Cavities are primarily caused by the erosive action of tartar deposits. They release acidic toxins when they feed on the food residues in the mouth, which erode the enamel and decay the underlying softer tissues.
Dr. Grant at Rio Rancho Family Dental Care can provide preventive measures against cavities and also suggest the best means to maintain proper oral hygiene, which is the primary line of defense against decay and cavities.
Fillings help restore a tooth after cavity treatments. Before, they were made from metals such as gold, silver, or amalgam. Nowadays, we offer patients discreet, tooth-colored fillings made from dental-grade ceramic or composite resin. Both are biocompatible materials and offer excellent properties.
Apart from providing these pediatric dentistry services, our team at Rio Rancho Family Dental Care can monitor the development of your child’s teeth at every stage and ensure they develop a healthy and bright smile that lasts a lifetime.
