Importance of a dentist for kids in the Greensboro area
Visiting a dentist is important for adults, but is just as important for children. Some parents forget that their children need to be seen by the dentist just as many times as they do. Two visits a year is highly recommended for children so the dentist can keep an eye on the teeth and gums and check for any signs of disease or cavities. Being proactive about dental care is essential.
Dr. Sona J. Isharani is a board certified pediatric dentist who helps children achieve healthy smiles. She does so by working with them regularly and providing a wide range of services. Below are some of the treatment options available for children through her practice:
- Cleanings – cleanings are essential at least twice a year to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria that may not have been brushed and flossed away during daily care. Even patients who take a lot of time caring for their smile may still have areas where problems develop. Seeing a dentist for a professional cleaning can address these areas and keep decay and disease from becoming a problem.
- X-rays – sometimes, cavities and other problems cannot be seen with the naked eye. This is when Dr. Sona J. Isharani may consider using x-rays to check the health of the teeth even from the inside. X-rays are done right in our office and are used as diagnostic tools.
- Fillings – when cavities develop, treatment is necessary to keep them from enlarging and becoming extremely painful. When cavities are found, the dentist needs to place a filling, which keeps it from expanding. Our practice uses composite resin fillings which are mercury-free and more aesthetic.
- Fluoride and sealant – sometimes, proactive services such as fluoride or sealant application can be used in protecting the smile and giving children extra protection for their teeth. These treatments are applied onto the teeth right in the office and are highly recommended for not only children but for some adults as well.
