What Is Children's Dentistry?
Children's dentistry is a field that provides dental treatment to children from their first tooth through to adulthood. Our dentist for children has the experience and training to professionally care for the gums, teeth, and mouth of children during their early stages of life. It involves identifying health concerns, providing treatment and preventive care, and educating parents and children on how to practice good oral hygiene at home.
At Newcastle Smile Center, we create a safe and comfortable environment that will make your child's visit educational and fun. We strive to develop a positive experience and healthy, beautiful smiles for our young patients. Our goal is to help children feel good about taking care of their teeth and visiting the dentist so they can receive the care they need throughout their life.
Oral Hygiene Education
Our amazing team of hygienists focuses on continually monitoring your child's growth and development at every visit, along with assessing their homecare routines. We use disclosing solution on the teeth, which makes plaque visible as pink or purple. This safe solution allows you to see the areas of your child's smile that need the most attention and helps us identify areas of homecare that can be improved. The hygienist will then show your child proper brushing techniques on one side of the mouth and have your child duplicate the process on the other side. By giving your child in-office practice, this approach helps empower them to maintain proper homecare routines. Additionally, we always ask you to assist your child with brushing and flossing while they are young.
Our Comprehensive Children's Dental Services in Newcastle
At our practice, we provide a wide range of dental services for children. Our team is always happy to help patients make the right choices to achieve and maintain beautiful and healthy smiles. Some of the services our children's dentist offers include:
Regular Examinations and Teeth Cleanings: When it comes to children, our dentist knows that preventive care is essential. We will check your child's teeth for cavities or other dental problems during every visit and clean their teeth to keep them healthy. We'll also monitor their bite development and discuss whether preventive care is needed.
Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride is a mineral that helps in preventing cavities. Our dentist may recommend fluoride treatments for children based on age. We usually start fluoride treatment from three years of age, especially for children prone to cavities.
Tooth-Colored Fillings: If your child gets a cavity, our dentist will fill it using tooth-colored material. This will help to restore the tooth's original function and shape and prevent decay from spreading.
Pulp Treatment: Pulpotomy can be necessary when decay has spread to the tooth's nerve endings. This therapy involves treatment of the nerves of the tooth to prevent tooth extractions. Tooth extractions are usually performed as a last resort.
A Positive Dental Environment for Children
We strive to provide an environment where the child will feel relaxed and safe. Not only do we offer a fun and engaging approach, but we do what we can to make our office a fun place to visit. We have TVs suspended on ceilings where they can watch exciting cartoons while receiving exams or treatments in the doctor's chair. Children can also choose fun rewards from our treasure chest. Preventing fear of the dentist will encourage young patients to seek out dental care in their adulthood.
Helping Kids Feel Comfortable During Visits
Our team knows that dental visits can be intimidating, especially if your child is young or new to our office. We strive to make our office a fun and engaging place where kids feel safe. Our team is very patient with kids and will work with your child at their pace.
When treatment is needed, we'll use a gentle chairside manner to help them feel comfortable. We can also offer nitrous oxide, a safe and light dental sedation, to relax children who are very apprehensive or anxious and those with gag reflexes. Our dentist and team will do all we can to ensure that your child is comfortable from the moment they enter our dental office to when they leave.
