We provide comprehensive solutions for your child’s oral health needs. Believing in the importance of listening to young patients, we take the time to truly understand each of our patient’s needs, goals, and lifestyle before offering a dental plan. Whether your child has specific dental needs or you would simply like to set up an appointment for their first visit, we’re here to help.
Pediatric Composite Crowns
Pediatric composite crowns, or root canals as they can be more commonly called, are extremely effective for restoring a tooth that has become infected. Dr Azad is an expert at completing these procedures, and thanks to her years of experience in the dentistry field, has performed this procedure on hundreds of patients. If your child requires a composite crown, then we’re on hand to help.
Emergency Dental Services
Dental emergencies can strike at any time. If your child has damaged his or her tooth by accident, or is complaining of pain, then call us on (949) 458-0393 right away. Unfortunately, the emergency room does not treat tooth damage, so be sure to contact us for emergency treatment.
Mouth Guards / Night Guards
Mouth or night guards can keep children safe if they play sport, or if they’re beginning to grind their teeth during the night. If you think that your child needs a guard, we can create one for them using our specialist tools.
Dental bonding is a procedure that can restore damaged teeth or give patients a preferred aesthetic look. If your child has damaged his or her tooth and requires a natural-looking restoration, consider dental bonding. In this procedure, a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the tooth and is shaped until it looks like the naturally occurring tooth.
Does your child have deep grooves in their back teeth that are causing issues? They may need dental sealants, which are thin sealants that add a protective coat over molars. They can help to prevent tooth decay over time, and aid in daily cleaning.
Dental restorations in children can mean the treatment of tooth decay, disease or damage in order to maintain tooth integrity. If your child requires any restorative dentistry, we can discuss with you in-depth what the procedures will be and how we will help your child.
While our main focus is on preventative care for children, we can perform tooth extractions when needed. If your child requires an extraction, we will first numb the area of the mouth we are extracting the tooth from. Then, we use dental tools to wiggle the tooth and pull it free from the gum. Afterwards, the area will be thoroughly cleaned and your child will be ready to head home. We’ll offer you care tips for looking after the gum whilst it’s healing too, so you don’t have to worry about potential infection.
There are several ways in which pulp can be damaged. Most commonly in children, tooth decay or an injury can create pulp infections. Unfortunately, there aren’t many visible signs of a pulp infection, but if your child complains of pain, sensitivity or of unexpected looseness of a tooth, these could be related to problems within their tooth pulp. We offer pulp therapy that can aid in the prevention and healing of pulp infections.
