Dentistry for kids is more than bright, healthy smiles; it's also about making the trip to the dentist a calm, pleasant experience so there's no fear of "next time." As pediatric dentists, we take pride in seeing our patients grow into their adult teeth, so we're committed to earning the trust of everyone who visits our clinic—both children and parents.
Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist are important to your dental health, as are daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair.
Fillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. Kelsey Ullsmith, DMD uses both amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed.
Crowns are used to restore teeth severely damaged by fracture or decay. After the tooth surface is cleaned and prepared, the crown is placed to cover the remainder of the tooth.
A root canal, or endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction. There are many reasons that teeth can become infected, including: cavities, previous large fillings, crowns, cracks and trauma.
A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.
Gum disease occurs in stages and more than half of adults over the age of 30 have some form of it. If you feel you are at risk, you should talk to us right away. If you catch gum disease in the early, gingivitis stage, it could be reversed with proper care from your dentist.
