POSITIVELY CHANGING A GENERATION’S VIEW OF DENTAL TREATMENT
Infant Oral Health Care
We follow the recommendations of The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry that a child’s first visit to the dentist should occur by 12 months of age. This visit will enable Dr. Aslani-Breit to evaluate your child and introduce you to proper oral hygiene. Diet, fluoride, finger and pacifier habits, and tooth eruption will be discussed to ensure optimal dental health. By starting early, we can enable your child to enjoy the lifelong benefits of a healthy mouth.
Recall appointments are preventive dentistry’s foundation. In our practice we customize appointment schedules to the patient’s needs. Often children with significant problems need to be seen on a more frequent basis for an examination, dental cleaning, and fluoride treatment.
Sealants protect your child’s teeth from decay. They are made of clear plastic and are painted on the grooves of the posterior teeth in one visit.
Mouthguards prevent dental injuries. A form-fitting mouthguard can be fabricated for your child in our office.
Early examination and treatment may help prevent or reduce the severity of a malocclusion or bad bite. Starting treatment or preventive care at the proper time, even when the baby teeth are present, can reduce the overall treatment time and result in a better outcome.
Tooth-colored fillings/bonding provide strength to the restored tooth and release small amounts of fluoride to prevent further decay. Similar in color and texture to natural teeth, the restorations are much less noticeable and much more attractive than other types of fillings, providing your child a confident smile.
Bleaching/tooth whitening is a safe and cost effective cosmetic treatment for many adolescents. Usually the best time to evaluate whether or not your child is a good candidate for bleaching is after completion of orthodontics, and all permanent teeth are present.
