Healthy Smiles Start Early: Children’s Dental Care
Dr. Evans and Dr. Ziemba recommend bringing your child in for their first dental visit soon after their primary teeth begin erupting. These early visits offer several benefits:
- Opportunity to monitor tooth development to spot possible problems early
- Familiarize young patients with our office and staff to reduce anxiety
- Lay the foundation for lifelong oral hygiene habits
As a family dentist in Longmeadow, we can also provide the convenience of maintaining everyone’s smile under one roof. With digital records, advanced technology and the children’s dental services your family needs, we can help growing smiles stay healthy and treat problems when they arise. Children’s dental services can include:
- Dental fillings: we place durable white fillings to restore the health of your tooth and provide a natural looking result.
- Dental sealants: placed over the biting surface of the larger back teeth, or molars, dental sealants reduce the risk of tooth decay from bacteria that can get into the recesses of the tooth cusp.
- Sports mouth guards
- Orthodontics, including invisible braces
- Tooth extraction
Preventing Tooth Decay
Tooth decay continues to be one of the most common health concerns today for both children and adults. With regular dental care, it is highly preventable as well as treatable. At Pioneer Valley Dental Arts, disease prevention is the focus of our preventive care program and the key to enjoying a healthy smile for a lifetime. Routine dental visits play an important role in reducing the incidence and severity of both tooth decay and complex dental concerns.
When you come in for a routine visit, we take the time to thoroughly examine all aspects of your oral health, from gums to teeth to jaw joints. Regular visits provide the opportunity to spot developing problems early on and offer conservative, less invasive treatment. We can also monitor tooth development in young patients, looking for possible bite problems or the effects of lifestyle habits on the teeth and gums. Dr. Evans and Dr. Ziemba place dental sealants on the larger back teeth once they have fully erupted to further prevent decay.
Our staff is dedicated to your personal oral health and will offer individualized oral hygiene advice as necessary to address your specific concerns or issues when it comes to your smile. There are also many ways in which your oral health can directly affect overall health and physical well being. Studies show the consistent “mouth-body” connection for a range of disease including diabetes, heart disease and auto-immune disorders. Good oral health is an important part of your quality of life.
