POWAY’S PEDIATRIC DENTIST
As a parent, Dr. Sam understands very well how difficult it can be to juggle the various health needs of children over time. That’s why she’s worked so hard to create a calm and comfortable environment here at Bright Pediatric Smiles where everyone can feel at home! As a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist, she has demonstrated her commitment to continuing education and an exceptional amount of knowledge in her field that parents can feel confident about. Her gentle and patient demeanor will be a great fit for your son or daughter, whether they’ve just gotten their first baby tooth or are preparing to leave for college soon.
Cavities and Fillings
Dental fillings are used to treat different dental problems like cavities and broken teeth. Teeth are usually filled with a material called composite resin, which is designed to look like natural teeth. Fillings can also be done with gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam.
Emergency Dental Care
It is very important to be prepared in case your child has an emergency. Even though we wish that they wouldn’t, emergencies do happen. Being educated and knowing what to do in an emergency can be the difference between losing and saving a tooth. You also need to know your dentist’s phone number.
Oral Health Exams
We truly believe that regular dental examinations are important in order for your child to have good dental health and a smile of which he or she can be proud. We start by doing a professional cleaning, removing all of the bad tartar and other buildup on your child’s teeth.
Dental sealant is a plastic coating painted on your teeth. It attaches to your child’s teeth, smoothing the rough edges, depressions, and grooves that are typically found on teeth. It gives your child’s teeth a protective coating, helping to prevent tooth decay and cavities.
We fully understand that many people are anxious about visiting the dentist. Since we don’t want fear to hold you back from getting the dental care you need, we offer sedation dentistry to improve your experience. Sedation dentistry allows you to relax while we perform a dental treatment. At the same time, you will remain conscious and aware of your surroundings. Instead of avoiding dental procedures, ask us about sedation dentistry.
