Preventive sealantsPreventive dentistry is all dental care that helps maintain good oral health. It is a combination of dental check-ups as well as the development of good habits.Pit sealant has main preventive effects: Use acid resistant resin to mechanically seal holes and cracks. By filling the pits, the habitat of Streptococcus mutans and other microorganisms can be suppressed. They help clean your teeth, so it is always a complementary preventive method for daily brushing.
Early dental careGood oral hygiene begins in the first years of life. Whether you are breastfeeding or bottle feeding your baby, you should start using some type of dental hygiene program as soon as possible. Before the first tooth comes in, clean the gums with gauze or a soft damp cloth. Once the teeth start to come in, keep your teeth clean. Using the right tools is essential to this daily habit. For example, it is important to buy a toothbrush specially designed for babies, the toothbrush head is small and fits the baby’s small mouth.A professional pediatric dentist will provide expert advice on how to care for your child’s teeth. Tips generally include the correct way to brush and floss your child’s teeth and additional information based on your child’s specific dental problem.
Oral hygiene instructionsHaving good dental hygiene for your child reduces the risk of having bacterial problems or cavities.
Emergency pediatric dentistry servicesWhen we refer to an “emergency in dentistry” we refer to sudden pain or discomfort caused by trauma or by an injury to the tooth; These injuries are usually very painful most of the time, so they need almost immediate and effective attention. When a child comes to the consultation with an emergency, dentists have to take into account both the physical and mental differences that they have in terms of an adult patient, this implies calming the child and trying to make him understand that we are here to help him and not to make him hurt.”
Hygiene and preventive cleaningPreventive dental cleaning carried out periodically in the dentist’s office is, more than a healthy habit, a necessity when it comes to maintaining dental health in an optimal state. Even when good oral hygiene is practiced, the accumulation of plaque and tartar on the gum line or the neck of the teeth is almost inevitable.
Orthodontic tratmentsThe development of children’s teeth is a topic of great relevance to most parents. But, above all, the moment of greatest attention to dental development comes when the milk teeth fall out and the permanent teeth begin to emerge. Periodic controls are carried out to monitor the evolution of the child’s dental health, where the temporary teeth are in the permanent ones and orthodontics are performed to correct anomalies.
Dr Nima was fantastic, I highly recommend him. The Hygentis Carol is amazing, the best I ever had!
Went into this office under recommendation and they couldn’t of been better of a recommendation!! Dr. Gustavo was very patient with me and gave me quality time to really weigh pros and cons of my dental plan for a very sensitive situation. I was very stressed and worried; but leaving the office I felt confident and secure in our decision with my teeth moving forward. I am a professional athlete and Dr. Gustavo really put himself in my shoes on how urgent the matter was. If I could choose one dentist in world; it would be him! The rest of the staff was friendly and thorough… with a beautiful clean office.
