Teen and Young Adult Dentistry 

Your smile is the first thing people notice when they meet you. Having a smile you are proud of can boost self-confidence and make you appear brighter and happier. Life happens and things can happen that affect your smile and teeth. At Summerville Pediatric Dentistry, we can correct teeth that may be crooked, chipped, or discolored to restore your smile to it's best through a variety of services using the latest and safest technology in dentistry.

Dental Exams

Regular checkups, which we suggest you schedule every six months, involves a comprehensive exam and advice on how to keep your smile healthy. Your dentist and hygienist will closely check your mouth for the presence of decay, infection, worn dental work, and even oral cancer. If any problems are discovered during the dental exam, we’ll work with you to create a treatment plan that will get you back to optimal health as soon as possible. Feel free to ask any questions you have regarding your oral health during your appointment.

Dental Cleanings

Professional dental cleanings are an important part of your regular six-month dental checkups. Our friendly and professional team wants to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy from the teenage years throughout life. During the cleaning portion of the appointment, your hygienist will remove plaque, tartar, and stains that can cause problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, gingivitis, and cavities. Your hygienist will polish your teeth, apply fluoride, as well as educate you about proper home care and the best ways to maintain your oral health.

Dental Fillings

We use modern technology to detect decay in the earliest stages, saving and preserving your teeth. When a dentist has to remove tooth structure due to decay or fracture, a dental filling is placed in teeth.Tooth-colored restorations fillings are safe, reliable and long lasting. In addition, they look great restoring your smile and your confidence. Tooth-colored fillings offer a more esthetic alternative to “silver” (dental amalgam) fillings. Plus, they may also allow for a more conservative treatment method that preserves more of the tooth's structure.

Flouride

Once your dental exam and cleaning is complete, your hygienist will apply fluoride to your teeth. This only takes a few minutes but can be very beneficial for your oral health.Fluoride is a mineral that exists naturally in food and water. Every day, minerals are lost from a tooth's enamel layer when acids formed from plaque bacteria and sugar attack the enamel of your teeth.By applying fluoride to your teeth, it will coat your teeth, inhibiting plaque from building up and hardening on the tooth’s surface, which is what leads to cavities.
