Crowns & Tooth Colored Fillings
When teeth need to be restored we use tooth-colored resin fillings whenever possible. A crown is necessary when teeth are fractured or have large cavities. Parents are welcome to come back with their child during treatment.
Baby teeth are important because they maintain space for the permanent teeth and help guide them into proper position. When baby teeth are lost too early, a device known as a space maintainer is sometimes necessary to help keep the space open for the permanent teeth. Without this appliance the adult teeth may tip or shift into the empty space. This sometimes results in adult teeth coming in crooked.
Interceptive Orthodontics & Braces
Interceptive Orthodontics refers to correcting some conditions such as crowding or cross bites early thereby reducing the need for more extensive orthodontic treatment later. We monitor how your child is growing and can recommend the best time to start braces.
