Our Dental Services
If you are looking for a Watertown dentist that can prevent infections, beautifully restore your child's teeth or transform your child's smile – we offer all of those solutions as part of our dental work. If you live or work near the Watertown area, we invite you to call (617) 924-1911 and schedule an appointment. During the initial examination, we will inspect your child's teeth and gums to determine if there are any cavities or if an infection is present. Early detection allows us to provide treatment before your child experiences any discomfort. Unlike other physical ailments that may not manifest until your child is in pain, oral health problems show signs along the way. As a dentist, when we see those signs, we can prevent your child from getting a full-blown infection by providing early treatment. For this reason, we recommend that you schedule a dental exam for your child twice a year.
In addition to examining and cleaning your child's teeth, we offer dental services to restore the health of any infected teeth as well. Whether this involves treating a cavity, performing a root canal or deep cleaning the gums, we can do so while keeping your child comfortable through various forms of sedation. While your child is relaxed, we can complete the treatment and help him or her leave in better health than when you both came in.
If you are looking for restorative or cosmetic work, we can help with that as well. Patients throughout MA trust Dr. Raffa, to beautifully transform their teeth and their smile. In many cases, this involves restoring a tooth that has been cracked or chipped in some form of accident. Other times, patients request a full smile makeover to close gaps in between teeth; change their shape or size; whiten their teeth or cover dark stains; straighten crooked teeth or replace missing ones. Whatever the case may be, we have the skills and experience to successfully complete the transformation and restore your child's teeth to good health in the process. For more information or to schedule an appointment with Pediatric Dental Arts, call 617-924-1911.
