Pediatric dentists can have a profound effect on the future of your child’s future oral health and oral hygiene habits. At TORC Dental, our friendly and approachable staff work great with patients of any age. We take the time to educate and instruct your children on proper brushing habits and good oral hygiene practices.
At TORC Dental we offer five pediatric services:
Sealants are a thin coating that is painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent any future tooth decay. The liquid sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth. Children are perfect candidates for sealants as they are more prone to cavities. Sealants can prevent this from happening.
Fluoride has been used for decades to help build strong teeth and prevents cavities. It’s a natural mineral that supports healthy tooth enamel and fights the bacteria that harm teeth and gums. Fluoride is especially helpful if you’re at a high risk of developing tooth decay, such as children.
Children are up to 80 percent more likely to develop cavities. Even with good oral hygiene habits, some children may develop cavities regardless. A filling can treat and restore the function, appearance and structure of a tooth.
We know kids are prone to accidents when they play too hard. If your child has a dental emergency, you can count on TORC Dental to fix the issue as soon as possible.
A crown caps a damaged or decayed tooth to restore it to its normal shape, size and function.
