PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY

Braces and Aligners straighten the teeth, making it easier for the patient to bite, chew and speak. Braces can correct misaligned teeth, prevent speech problems; improve chewing capacity.

  1. Traditional braces are available in ceramic or metal, with silver or colored modules (the small pieces that hold the wires in place on the teeth)
  2. Self-ligating braces are available in ceramic or metal; modules are not required.
  3. Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth; they are available in ceramic and metal.
  4. An aligner is a transparent plastic sheath that fits over the teeth to reposition them.

A Filling is material that fills the opening that’s left after a decayed portion of a tooth has been removed. Fillings fall into three categories: amalgam, composite and GIC.

  1. Amalgam Fillings use an alloy (mixture) of mercury and other metals (such as silver, copper or tin) that is carved and contoured after placement in the tooth.
  2. Composite Fillings use a composite made of minute glass or ceramic particles that are mixed into a gel-like substance. The color of the substance is similar to that of a tooth. After it is applied to the tooth, the composite is hardened using a light that causes it to solidify almost instantly.

An Extraction is performed to remove a decayed or severely damaged tooth that cannot be saved. It may also be performed to relieve crowding of teeth. In some cases, (for example, when the tooth is impacted) an extraction must be performed surgically. Dental Sealants help prevent cavities. A sealant is a plastic material that is applied where decay occurs most often. Space Maintainers hold the space for a permanent tooth after a child has lost a milk tooth due to decay or an accident. The space maintainer keeps adjacent teeth from shifting into the empty space. Habit-breaking Devices help children stop thumb sucking or tongue thrusting, which can have an impact on their oral health and their speech.
