As parents, we, at Mass Bay Dental in Salem, MA, understand that you’d rather prevent dental problems from occurring than have your child treated for them. We offer a range of preventive and restorative dental treatments for children, including sealants, fluoride treatments and clear braces like Invisalign.
Good oral hygiene and dental care start with a thorough dental cleaning for your child. Our playful and cheerful pediatric dentistry teaches your child how to use toothbrushes and floss and introduces them to great oral practices. We also educate your child on healthy eating habits.
Routine cleanings are also a good opportunity to identify problem areas that need attention and treatment.
Our dentist in Salem, MA uses quartz, ceramic, or silica fillings as they are safe and non-toxic for pediatric use. Modern dental fillings for children also release fluoride that helps add protection against cavities. Our dental team also recommends composite fillings for front and back teeth.
Fillings do have a tendency to wear out sooner if the child has a habit of grinding his or her teeth.
Since children’s teeth grow rapidly and their oral cavity undergoes a lot of changes, they need many more dental X-rays compared to adults. We’re able to evaluate abnormal tooth eruptions, identify potential areas of problems, highlight bone loss and plan orthodontic treatments.
Dental X-rays are ideal for identifying conditions that cannot be detected through visual examinations. Mass Bay Dental in Salem, MA is extremely careful to minimize exposure to X-rays, and we use reliable guards to keep your child safe. Dental X-rays are extremely safe and very useful in evaluating deep-rooted problems.
