1st dental visit in lafayette ca

1st dental visit

We recommend the first dental visit at age 1 or 6 months after the eruption of the first baby teeth. This visit is primarily focused on answering questions, identifying areas of concern, and setting up a preventative plan to ensure a lifetime of good oral health. With the help of Buddy, movies, toys, and balloons, we aim to make this visit as fun and easy as possible for both you and your little one!

Pediatric Cleanings and X-Rays

Keeping your teeth healthy and clean requires more than diligent brushing and flossing at home. In many cases, plaque will build up on different areas of the teeth, hardening into a chalky white substance known as tartar.

pediatric anesthesia for kids in lafayette ca

Anesthesia

Anesthesia is an option for our patients who either want to be fully or partially sedated during their treatment. Oral surgery can be a frightening experience for many people, so utilizing sedation can make your child’s experience with us a lot more comfortable.

Sealants

Sealants are a protective covering that is applied to the chewing surfaces of your child's back teeth. These sealants provide a barrier between the teeth and the bacteria and plaque inside of your child's mouth.

tooth extractions lafayette ca

Tooth Extraction

Pediatric extractions are needed when a tooth has severe decay, is injured, or there is crowding. Extractions are a common procedure, and at Dr. Roy, we strive to ensure your child always has a positive experience when they visit our office.

Space Maintenance

A space maintainer is a custom made appliance that can either be removable or fitted permanently in your child’s mouth. The spaced maintainer’s main purpose is to prevent shifting of surrounding teeth so that the permanent teeth can erupt properly.

Dental Emergency

A dental emergency can occur at virtually any time, regardless of how well your child takes care of their smile. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for many of these emergencies to leave a patient in severe pain and discomfort.

Crowns

A dental crown is a type of restoration that is specifically designed to cover a damaged or otherwise compromised tooth. For kids, a tooth might have cracked or broken, or it may be so severely decayed that there is no other way to replace these decayed areas. We offer crowns for children that are fitted to be comfortable and realistic-looking. Most dental crowns can last for years, and they can be placed over primary (baby) teeth as well as permanent teeth.

silver diamine fluoride treatment lafayette ca

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Silver diamine fluoride, commonly referred to as SDF, is a liquid that can be brushed onto a tooth that has a cavity. This simple, quick and noninvasive treatment kills the bacteria that is causing and continuing the decay, preventing dental caries from becoming more extensive. SDF treatment is ideal for children and adults who do not want to have to get a cavity filled.

Root Canals On Baby Teeth

A root canal is a procedure that involves removing the pulp from an infected or broken tooth. Every tooth has a tiny pulp inside that is responsible for housing the blood supply and nerves. If the tooth becomes severely decayed or has cracked enough to expose the pulp, it’ll need to be removed via a root canal.

pediatric dental filling in lafayette ca

Dental Filling

A dental filling is a restoration that is specifically used to fill in an area of one or more teeth that have become decayed. Dental decay, known as a cavity, can infiltrate a tooth and cause it to become weak. Over time, the decay essentially eats into the tooth to reach the inner pulp. Before the decay is allowed to get to this point, it's removed and replaced with a tooth-colored composite resin filling.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is most commonly found in dental products, like toothpastes and mouthwashes. It is designed to protect and strengthen a person's teeth, making them less prone to developing cavities. Regardless of the amount of fluoride that you use each day, we offer professional treatments that can add further protection for your smile. Fluoride treatments are great for adult and pediatric patients alike.
