At Fairfield Smiles, we are committed to providing top-quality dental treatment and care for our younger patients. We advise parents to start bringing in their child for dental checkups by their first birthday. By making regular dental visits early in life, a child is more likely to maintain positive oral health into their adult years. Our practice offers a complete pediatric dentistry program that is specifically designed to put children and teens on the right track for a lifetime of great oral health.
Our staff will do everything possible to help your child or teen remain relaxed while any dental work is being completed. After their visit, you will know exactly where your child stands in terms of their oral health and what they need to do to maintain it. Your child’s teeth are truly in the best possible hands with Fairfield Smiles.
Our lineup of pediatric dentistry services includes:
- Sealants: Dental sealants provide teeth with an effective barrier against harmful bacteria and plaque. They also make a child’s teeth easier to clean and maintain while they learn proper brushing and flossing techniques. By applying dental sealants to your child’s teeth, we can help to ensure that they will remain healthy and strong as they continue to grow and develop.
- Fluoride Applications: Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that is found in certain foods and water. The substance is known for strengthening teeth and helping to reverse the early effects of tooth decay. Overall, these applications are highly effective in helping a young person’s teeth to remain healthy and strong. We offer both varnish fluoride treatments and gel fluoride applications for pediatric patients to help strengthen and protect their teeth.
- Fillings: Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have experienced minor damage or decay. Often, this damage is the result of cavities caused by bacteria and plaque. A filling will seal off any holes or voids on the tooth and ensure that the structure remains strong and protected.
The team at Fairfield Smiles is ready to help your child achieve a lifetime of excellent oral health. We look forward to providing the best possible treatment and care for your child or teen. Please call us at 203-423-3833 to schedule an appointment.
