Here at Smile Avenue, we pride ourselves in providing excellent service to parents and their children alike. We understand that a child's first dental visit can be daunting for them, therefore our aim is to make it a positive experience by keeping the environment light, friendly and comfortable for your little one. We offer a number of child friendly dental services to suit their needs.
Dental sealants are placed for children who have deep pits & fissures (grooves) within their teeth to prevent decay and cavity development.
We provide biocompatible fillings for your children's teeth that are safe, durable and won't interfere with the natural shedding of the baby teeth when being replaced by permanent adult teeth.
Pain-free Extraction of Baby Teeth
In some instances, baby teeth may ultimately need removal - either due to severe decay, infection, or when they are delayed in shedding preventing the permanent tooth from erupting properly. We provide pain-free removals, making sure your little one is at ease and comfortable during the procedure.
Habits such as thumb-sucking and tongue thrusting during childhood can lead to teeth positioning problems that may require long-term fixed orthodontic treatment to correct. Early intervention with removable habit-breaking appliances can help prevent the need for difficult long-term correctional treatment.
When tooth decay is too close to the nerve of the baby tooth, a partial nerve removal is performed then medication is applied and the tooth is sealed with a biocompatible filling material.
Children may require space maintainers when they lose a milk tooth early due to trauma, severe decay or infection. This is a custom-made metal appliance, which is cemented into place, to keep the space open to allow the permanent tooth to erupt into its correct place. This reduces the chances of orthodontic treatment being needed later.
One of the most important things to keep your little one's teeth cavity free, is a healthy diet. We provide both parents and their children an overview with what foods are nutritious and teeth friendly.
For patients who may be too anxious to receive treatment comfortably in the dental chair, we offer conscious sedation as a safe and effective solution in helping one get through the dental procedures that are needed.
