When it comes to caring for our younger patients, the team at Southern Dental Associates takes great care. Pediatric Dentistry here at our state of the art facility is a top priority with a complete range of quality services including preventative care including exams, cleanings, Digital X-rays, sealants and fluoride applications as well as emergency dentistry, Phase 1 Ortho and Mouth Guards. You can also count on us for your young family members’ first orthodontic consultation if needed.
Sealants - Sealants, as their name implies, are thin sealers that are placed over certain teeth in young patients’ mouths to provide a barrier against decay. Sealants are quick to apply with a tiny paint brush, virtually pain-free and patients don’t even know they are there - making them a no-brainer to help prevent cavities.
Fluoride Applications, - During your child’s routine visit to Southern Dental Associates, we’ll provide needed fluoride applications. This simple application can prevent cavities throughout your child’ life, protecting his or her smile and eliminating dental problems as they grow.
Fillings - Let’s face it cavities sometimes happen. If and when they do, you can count on the caring and experienced dental professionals at Southern Dental Associates Deerbrook to care for the young one’s mouths. It’s important to provide a nurturing environment and work hard to keep even the baby teeth in good shape to set them up for a lifelong of good oral health.
Emergency Dentistry - When emergency dentistry is needed, contact Southern Dental Associates. We specialize in treating your younger family members when emergencies occur. Ask us about our extended hours including late and Saturday appointments - because emergencies don’t always follow a six to five schedule.
Mouth Guards - If your kids are playing sports like hockey or football, it is a good idea to look into mouth guards to protect their teeth and the delicate tissue that supports that golden smile. At Southern Dental Associates, we specialize in a wide variety of mouth guards to protect your kids’ smiles.
Phase 1 Ortho - A healthy smile starts at a young age and leads to a lifetime of overall wellness. Start the good habits early with routine dental care as well as phase 1 ortho by the age of seven. This early care can help shape a healthy and well-functioning smile - not to mention that it’s important to make a habit of taking your child to the dentist at a very young age. Aside from general dental care, it’s also important that your child has an orthodontic appointment by the age of seven. While your child may not have a serious need for braces, getting a check-up at this age will help determine if your child does need orthodontic work in the future, as well as make a beautiful smile easier to achieve.
Southern Dental Associates is excited to provide high-quality dental care for your entire family. We’re here for routine check-ups as well as emergency needs and orthodontics. Be sure to ask about our family scheduling options to save you time in your busy schedule. We also offer many extended hour options and financing for your added convenience.
