Dental Procedures

  • Dental Emergencies
    One type of dental emergency is a knocked-out tooth. If it's a permanent tooth, rinse it and place it back in the socket. Then immediately take your child to the dentist.
  • Dentistry: It's Not the Same Old Drill
    A revolution in dentistry is spawning new devices and products, from laser "drills" to high-tech toothpaste and mouth rinses.
  • Fillings
    Teeth that have tooth decay must be repaired. Advances in dental materials and techniques provide new, effective ways to restore teeth.
  • How to Tell if Your Child Needs Braces
    Orthodontic treatment most commonly begins between ages 9 and 14 because kids in this age range have at least some permanent teeth and are still growing.
  • Orthodontics/Braces for Children
    Orthodontics is the dental specialty that focuses on the development, prevention, and correction of irregularities of the teeth, bite, and jaws.
  • Sealants
    Dental sealants are thin, plastic films painted on the chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars. They are highly effective in preventing tooth decay.
  • Wisdom Teeth Extraction
    Because most mouths are too small for the four additional molars called wisdom teeth, these teeth usually must be extracted.
