Pediatric Preventative Dentistry in Malvern

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Cavities and toothaches are never fun, especially for your child. When it comes to treating decay in baby teeth, you may be wondering if there are alternatives to dental fillings. Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a non-invasive procedure that doesn't require any drills or shots and can be completed in minutes. Painting on a layer of SDF to the affected tooth not only kills the bacteria that cause decay but also seals and remineralizes the tooth for added strength. If your little one has a cavity, fillings may not be the only option!

Pediatric Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays are fast, high resolution images that capture your child's facial development and tooth health. It is an integral part of proper diagnosis and individualized assessment to support a strong preventative plan. We use the latest technology and follow the most recent guidelines in making this recommendation to limit the amount of radiation to which your child is exposed.

Pediatric Dental Sealants

Pediatric dental sealants are a simple, yet highly effective treatment designed to protect your child's teeth from decay. This preventative measure involves applying a thin, plastic coating directly onto the surface of the back teeth—areas that are most susceptible to cavities. The sealant quickly bonds into the grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel. Dr. Nuthyla Skuja at Little Bear Pediatric Dentistry in Malvern is skilled in administering this treatment. From start to finish, she ensures a comfortable and stress-free experience for your child.

Infant Dentistry

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), a baby should see a dentist within six months of the eruption of their first tooth, or by age one. These early visits are essential for ensuring your child's teeth are developing properly. During these appointments, we'll also inform you of proper hygiene techniques to keep that little smile strong and healthy, along with nutritional guidance to keep cavities at bay.
