That Kids Love
If your child has a cavity, you don’t have to worry about us using a large gray filling to fix it that will instantly stand out in their smile. Instead, we can place a tooth-colored filling made of composite resin that is specially shaded to match their enamel. In addition to being more aesthetically friendly than metal fillings, they also don’t require as much enamel to be removed while being placed, meaning the restored tooth ends up being stronger as well.
Frenectomies/Lip & Tongue Tie Procedures
Does your child have trouble moving their lips or tongue normally? If so, this could be due to a short, thick band of tissue attached to them called a frenulum. Everyone has frenulums in their mouths that form during birth, and for some children, they can restrict normal oral function, interfering with feeding, speaking, and breathing. Thankfully, Dr. Marty can fix these kinds of issues quickly and painlessly using a soft tissue laser. In just a few minutes, he can loosen or snip the tissue in a way that allows even the littlest patient to remain comfortable.
Pulp therapy is used to treat severely decayed teeth that have developed an infection within the sensitive nerve of the tooth known as the dental pulp. During this procedure, Dr. Marty will create a small hole in the tooth to remove the infected pulp, leaving any healthy portions behind to ensure the tooth functions and develops normally moving forward. This is often the best solution for severe toothaches, and thanks to local anesthetic and sedation dentistry, most children feel practically nothing (other than relief) during the procedure.
