School has now let out for the summer, which means kids will no longer have to deal with extracurricular activities, late night homework, school projects, and early mornings. Now is the perfect time to schedule their dental appointments with our pediatric dentist.
SUMMERTIME AND KIDS DENTISTRY
During the summer, many kids don’t focus on their dietary intake, which can impact their oral health. Since dental cleaning need to be conducted every six months, the summertime is a great time of the year to get a dental cleaning. Getting a dental cleaning during the summer ensures the next dental cleaning appointment will take place when the kids are out of school again during the winter break (especially if the cleaning takes place during this month).
Along with dental cleanings, our pediatric dentists conduct various dental procedures, including dental fillings and dental crowns.
CAVITIES AND CROWNS
If your child has cavities, then it is imperative for the health of their teeth to bring them to the dentist and have the cavities removed and filled. At Bright Value Dental, we utilize composite dental fillings to fill in areas where cavities have been removed. Taking care of cavities in a timely manner will ensure the decay doesn’t spread and worsen. If left untreated, what should have been a simple dental filling could lead to needing a dental crown or root canal.
A dental crown is placed on top of a tooth that has suffered from breakage or severe tooth decay. Our Bellaire dentist removes the decay or prepares the area of the tooth that has been broken and places the dental crown, also known as a dental cap, on top of the remaining healthy part of the tooth. A dental crown is made of porcelain, which makes it look and feel like a natural tooth. Dental crowns are also durable and long-lasting.
