Your child’s dental care should begin early in life. It’s never too soon to visit the dentist! We recommend visiting North Brand Dental as soon as your child celebrates her first birthday. By scheduling regular visits to the dentist, you’ll help your young child develop strong oral care habits and receive the attention and monitoring she needs for optimal dental health.
At North Brand Dental we use Nitrous oxide that is a safe and effective sedative agent that works rapidly, and can relax our patient within 3 minutes. It can be used for everything from invasive dental procedures to a simple tooth cleaning. It is eliminated from the body about as quickly and patients are usually able to drive themselves home.
A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. A crown can help strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to hold the filling. Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken.
Stainless steel crowns (SSCs) are used for extensive caries and offer a greater life span than other restorations. At least 23 percent of U.S. children aged two to five years old are affected by Dental caries. While stainless steel crowns may appear silver, they are actually composed of chromium, nickel and iron.
A composite filling procedure involves the use of a tooth-colored resin material to restore the functionality of broken or decayed teeth. They are cosmetically appealing and may last longer than other types of fillings.
Dental amalgam, or silver filling is a blend of metals, consisting of liquid (natural) mercury and a powdered alloy composed of silver, tin, and copper. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), Amalgam fillings are safe and is an ideal substance for dental restorations because it’s strong, durable, and less expensive than other types.
A tongue crib is a small appliance that is placed directly into the mouth. It has two rings, which are placed on teeth at the back of the mouth. The rings connect to a small cage that sits in the mouth. The tongue crib is completely safe to use and can be effective. The good news is that some dental specialists will help with retraining simultaneously to ensure full treatment.
Orthodontic retainers are usually made of wires or clear plastic, that hold teeth in position after surgery or any method of realigning teeth. Removable retainers easily slide out of your mouth when you eat or brush your teeth. These retainers are to be worn for maximum period daily for at least one year, after your braces are removed.
Mouth guards are significant piece of athletic gear, a must have for anyone participating in a sport that involves falls, body contact or flying equipment.
