Painless Oral Injection SystemWe use a variety of methods like topical anesthetics (numbing gel) and selective, controlled anesthetic delivery to minimize the pain associated with Local anesthesia shots. In addition to these methods, we also utilize DentalVibe to eliminate the fear that prevents patients from seeking out needed dental treatment. Children often experience the most anxiety related to needles, and that’s what makes them ideal candidates for relaxing dental care with DentalVibe. If your little one dreads a visit to the dentist or getting an upcoming treatment requiring local anesthesia, you can help eliminate potential discomfort by choosing the DentalVibe from the get-go. Teeth are frequently in harm’s way; by one estimate, a quarter of all 12-year-olds have injured their permanent teeth. Of course, the fact that dental injuries are common is no comfort when they happen to you – or your child. Fortunately, modern dental treatment can make your smile look great again; especially if you get prompt and appropriate care. That’s why it is important to know what to do when you break a tooth.
Chipped ToothThe appropriate treatment for a chipped tooth will depend on how much of the tooth has broken off. A small chip isn’t generally an emergency; it can often be repaired with dental bonding, which involves layering on a durable, tooth-colored material to restore the tooth’s shape. This is a relatively simple procedure that can be completed in one dental appointment. Because the bonding material has the same shade and transparency as natural teeth, it creates a beautiful repair. It is possible, however, that the bonding material will wear away over time and have to be replaced eventually. Minor chips can also be repaired with a porcelain veneer, which covers the entire front surface of the tooth instead of just the chipped area.
Cracked (Fractured) ToothA crack can begin from the chewing surface or the root of a tooth and may cause severe pain or just intermittent discomfort. But because even a small crack can open a pathway to infection, it’s important to see a dentist whether or not you are in pain.

What diet and nutritional advice can be offered for building strong teeth?
Experts agree that children need food from all the major food groups to grow properly and stay healthy. Too many carbohydrates, sugars (for example, from cake, cookies, candies, milk, fruit juice, and other sugary foods and beverages), and savory foods and starches (for example, pretzels and potato chips) can cause tooth decay. How long carbohydrates remain on the teeth is the main culprit that leads to tooth decay. Read more

We all know that fruit is full of vitamins and an important part of kids diets.
