Kids Dental Care
Your children matter to us at Galaxy Smiles Children’s Dentistry in Las Vegas. We are committed to providing the highest quality dental care for all children. Our quality dental care starts with the most fundamental dental care, which is preventative care. A good foundation of preventative dental care helps prevent serious dental issues from arising and ensures that your child’s oral health is prioritized.
We are proud to have a team of knowledgeable and dedicated pediatric dentists here at Galaxy Smiles Children’s Dentistry. Our pediatric dentists will improve your child’s oral health while tracking the developmental progress of their teeth, jaw, and gums over time. Our pediatric dental care includes cleanings, fluoride treatments, comprehensive dental exams, and sometimes X-rays in the Las Vegas area.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Thorough dental exams at Galaxy Smiles Children’s Dentistry enable dental hygienists and dentist to gain an in-depth look into your child’s mouth to fully assess their bite, teeth, gums, and overall oral health status. During our Las Vegas dental exams, our skilled pediatric dentist can determine the best plan of care for your child and create a customized comprehensive care plan.
Cleaning & Fluoride Treatments
Take a load off and leave the dental cleaning to our team of skilled professionals at Galaxy Smiles Children’s Dentistry so can thoroughly clean your child’s teeth including those hard to reach places. We easily remove plaque build up, and reduce tartar while educating on best dental practices in Las Vegas. After our thorough dental cleaning, we apply our fluoride treatment used to help strengthen your child’s teeth.
The best way to get an overall picture of your child’s mouth is through dental X-rays. At Galaxy Smiles Children’s Dentistry, we limit radiation exposure through several measures to ensure your child and their health is prioritized. Dental X-rays allow our Las Vegas pediatric dentists to get a better understanding of jaw and facial bone development as well as their teeth placement and growth.
Cavities are the breakdown of teeth due to bacteria, also known as tooth decay. Bacteria can affect both the tooth enamel (outer coating) and dentin (inner coating). It’s common for people to have cavities without knowing they do because they don’t typically cause a lot of discomfort until they get worse. The more time that passes, the worse the cavity will become. If you wake up with a toothache or feel a sharp pain in your mouth while eating or drinking, it’s quite possible that you have developed a cavity and should schedule an exam with your local pediatric dentist in Las Vegas at Galaxy Smiles Children’s Dentistry.
Cavities are caused from food and sugars sticking to the inside and outside of your teeth. Plaque builds up and carries bacteria that will begin to damage your teeth. Although cavities are most commonly found in children, adults should still visit the dentist every six months to have their teeth cleaned and examined. While adults may eat less junk food and be more conscious about brushing their teeth, gums naturally recede with age, exposing areas of the root and allowing food to become trapped in those areas, which are difficult to reach with a toothbrush.
In most cases, a cavity can be fixed with a filling, but if the tooth isn’t treated the condition can become increasingly worse and more painful. Although it’s not very common, some cavities will require the tooth to be pulled if it cannot be repaired.
At Galaxy Smiles Children’s Dentistry, we use dental fillings to restore and protect the integrity of your child’s tooth. To prepare a tooth for a dental sealant, our Las Vegas pediatric dentists will remove the compromised tooth tissue and fill it with resin and composite to improve the health and functionality of the tooth and overall smile.
Dental sealants are a thin coating that is applied to the molars. It’s a proactive way to ensure that are sealed and are less susceptible to cavities.
One of the dental procedures we use at Galaxy Smiles Children’s Dentistry is dental extractions. We perform dental extractions in Las Vegas only when it is absolutely necessary like when the tooth is infected, decayed, or damaged. Extracting these compromised teeth can help the remaining teeth and smile be in optimal condition.
