CarlsbaDDS Pediatric Smiles the time to speak with each patient and discuss possible ways that they can improve their oral health. This may involve us demonstrating how to brush teeth correctly, floss, or discuss dietary changes that can strengthen teeth to your child. For example, many people do not know that acidic foods are bad for teeth, directly leading to erosion and a loss of enamel. Simultaneously, dairy products, nuts, and crunchy vegetables can actually help to strengthen teeth, while also preventing cavities. These are the types of things that we discuss in our dental office so that patients can improve their oral health between visits.

Types of Dentistry
Dental offices throughout the country specialize in various types of dental work. We offer comprehensive dental care so that we can address all our patients' oral health concerns from one location. Our comprehensive dental care starts with performing routine dental examinations and teeth cleanings. Appointments like this are essential for keeping teeth and gums healthy in the long-run. During these exams, we will look for signs of cavities and gum disease. Next, we will make treatment recommendations if we identify any problems. Once your child's teeth are healthy and clean, we can discuss any cosmetic issues or problems that may be interfering with having a perfect smile. We have a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions that can close gaps in between teeth, change the overall shape and size of teeth, straighten teeth, cover dark stains and more. This makes it possible for our patients to transform the appearance of their smile and improve their oral health at the same time.
For those that have a dental emergency and need a tooth repaired, we offer dental restorations as well. This may involve correcting a tooth that has been cracked or chipped. In this process, we use bonding or dental crowns to help the restoration blend in with the surrounding teeth. Once the restoration is complete we will ensure that it is a durable, strong and perfect fit. Afterwards, the tooth will function properly as it once did.
Dental offices have the advantage of using modern technology to improve dental care. We are excited about the advancements in dentistry that open up a world of possibilities. There is virtually no oral health or appearance concern that can't be solved when treated quickly enough. With ongoing care, young patients can keep a healthy and beautiful set of teeth as they age. Technology has also made it possible for dental work to be performed in a way that keeps patients comfortable.
