The philosophy of care influences the approach and the treatment methods an office provides. At our dental center, we are passionate about the health of our patients and the impact that it can make on their lifestyle. We do not view dental care as an isolated issue, rather, as something that influences your child's ability to enjoy life and live without fear of discomfort. Our holistic approach begins with preventative care, since we are confident in our ability to reduce the likelihood of your child developing cavities or an infection.

Procedures Performed in Our Dental Center
When your child visits our Watertown, MA dental center for a typical checkup, we will begin by examining your child's teeth and gums. This preliminary examination, allows us to identify any cavities that require treatment or gum disease that must be dealt with. Since our top priority is your child's dental health, we will address these issues first. Next, we will discuss the least favorable qualities about your child's smile and possible plans for how to best correct it. Given the wide variety of pediatric dentistry solutions we have available, there is virtually no issue that we cannot address in our Dental Center. Some patients even find that they do not need braces after we have finished improving the appearance of their teeth.

Some examples of the procedures we perform:
Upon visiting our Watertown dental center, we can work to restore any of your child's teeth that have been damaged. This includes teeth that have been cracked or chipped in an accident. We have several tools for correcting the problem that include a dental crown and dental bonding procedure. Natural-looking crowns are often a preferred solution, since crowns act as a cap that surrounds the exposed portion of the tooth. By not allowing anything to touch the natural tooth, a crown serves as a protective barrier against infection from bacteria, the force of biting and anything else that may come in contact with the damaged tooth. Our goal for restorations is to create a tooth that looks beautiful while being entirely functional.
In our dental center, we can improve the appearance of your child's teeth by closing gaps in between teeth, covering dark stains, and even changing the overall shape and size of your child's teeth. Dental bonding is one way to help close gaps between a child's teeth. However, at times, the only necessary action is to simply whiten teeth and remove the stains. We can assist with that in our Watertown dentist office. Our whitening treatment is far more effective than what you can purchase in the store, since it will whiten your teeth by eight shades or more after penetrating the enamel. The procedure is completely non-invasive and creates a dramatic difference in the appearance of your child's smile.
In our dental offices, we find that the prevention of oral health problems is critical. In many cases, cavities and infections can be avoided when your child's teeth are cleaned and examined on a regular basis. Gum disease is a possible consequence of bad dental care and can lead to tooth loss as an adult. This disease forms when plaque becomes trapped under the gums and begins to irritate them. This condition can be caught and treated early before there are any long-term health consequences.
We invite you to call 617-924-1911 to schedule an appointment with our dental practice so that your child can experience our superior service and patient care.
