Here at Rye Dental Associates, we work hard to provide a warm and inviting environment for our patients of all ages. We love serving children and helping to provide them with a dental foundation that will benefit them for a lifetime. When you bring your child to Rye Dental Associates, you can be confident that they will receive top-quality, gentle care.
We provide a wide variety of Pediatric Services including:
Brushing and flossing are definitely the best way to prevent cavities, but it can be difficult to reach back teeth, especially for our youngest patients. An extra challenge is that molars are rough, uneven and an easy place for food and cavity-causing bacteria to hide. Sealants act as a safety net to keep those teeth healthy. Sealants are a thin, protective coating that adheres to the chewing surface of back teeth. Applying them is fast and painless and can be completed during a regular dental checkup.
Fluoride Applications are one the most effective solutions of Pediatric Dentistry. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has many benefits for teeth. When applied directly to the teeth, fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and can even reverse the very early effects of tooth decay. The process of applying fluoride is fast and painless and can be completed during a regular dental checkup.
Most cavities can be repaired using a simple filling. This involves drilling out the damaged tissue of the tooth and replacing it with a white-colored composite material. This procedure prevents further damage to the tooth. In addition, the composite resin blends in with your child's natural teeth.
A pediatric dental emergency requires a patient to call or go to the dentist immediately. At Rye Dental Associates, we know unexpected things can happen. We encourage patients to call us whenever they are experiencing oral discomforts. Our dental team is here to cater to you and your concerns regarding emergency dental problems involving you and your children.
