At Bedford Dental, we enjoy taking care of our youngest patients. We believe it is important to treat children in a way that gives them a positive feeling about the dentist and will lead to a lifetime of good oral health. We provide a variety of pediatric dentistry services including sealants, fluoride applications, fillings and emergency dentistry.
If we come across any cavities or decay in your child’s teeth, it is important to treat the issue as soon possible before it worsens. In most cases, we will be able to gently fill a cavity with a tooth-colored filling.
For a variety of reasons, children are more susceptible to cavities and tooth decay than adults. Topical fluoride treatments are an excellent way to help prevent decay in young teeth. The treatment is fast and painless to apply and can be done at the same time as a regular checkup.
In addition to fluoride treatments and routine cleanings, sealants are an excellent preventive treatment to help prevent cavities in children. Sealants are painted over a tooth’s chewing surface to help keep them clean and protect them from acid and bacteria that leads to decay.
At Bedford Dental, we understand that dental emergencies can be traumatic for both children and their parents. We are here to make these situations as easy as possible and promise to treat your child with great skill and a gentle touch.
At Bedford Dental, we welcome children with a play area, video games and TVs and Netflix in our exam rooms. We also offer family scheduling for your convenience. To learn more about our Pediatric services, call us today at (708) 496-8896.
