Why Choose Our Practice
Here are just a few things that make our practice unique:
Children’s hands and mouths are different than adults. They need to use toothbrushes designed for children. Both adults and children should use brushes with soft, rounded bristles for gentle cleaning.
Fillings / Restorations
We are a mercury-free practice. However, many people still have silver/mercury fillings in their mouths from years past.
The first baby teeth come into the mouth are the two bottom front teeth. You will notice this when your baby is about six to eight months old.
You and Dr. Martinez or Dr. Brody may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons.
Removable appliances may be used to move selected teeth, to hold selected teeth in place, to influence growth of the jaws, and to influence tooth eruption.
Most of the time cavities are due to a diet high in sugary foods and a lack of brushing. Limiting sugar intake and brushing regularly, of course, can help.
While many people believe periodontal disease is an adult problem, studies indicate that gingivitis (the first stage of periodontal disease) is nearly a universal problem among children and adolescents.
