3D Digital Scanner
With unsurpassed precision and detail, 3D intra-oral scanning allows for our orthodontic specialist to analyze your child’s dental growth and development without the need for additional x-rays. When it’s time for your child to get braces Sunny Smiles Kids Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics is your team.
Extra-Oral Digital Radiographs
Our digital radiographs expose your child to 90% less radiation than the traditional analog x-ray films and are a safe tool to diagnose cavities in areas not visible during examination. With our extra-oral technology, children who are unable to tolerate holding x-ray films inside their mouth can now bypass that process entirely.
Light-Induced Fluorescence Cavity Detector
With the use of our fluorescence technology, we can keep small problems from becoming big problems.
Very small cavities are not captured on digital radiographs and can be extremely difficult to detect even during an examination. Our use of this hand-held fluorescence cavity detection aid allows us to easily see when the dentin is healthy and when it is not (noted in red).
By diagnosing a cavity at the earliest stages a filling can be completed comfortably without the use of anesthesia. Our cavity detector is routinely used prior to the placement of sealants to eliminate any chance of sealing over a cavity.
Sunny Smiles Kids Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics uses only BPA-free sealants that safely and effectively protect your child’s primary and permanent teeth.
The application of a sealant protects the biting surfaces of teeth from cavities and the build-up of plaque and debris often found from inadequate brushing. Children’s teeth are especially susceptible to cavities due to the the variety of challenges that parents experience while trying to keep their child on a good oral hygiene regimen.
With proper home care and maintenance, children with sealants experience a lower risk of developing cavities.
Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
Remember those metal fillings? We don’t use that here. Instead, we use composite fillings that look just like natural teeth.
When cavities are too big to be filled, a full coverage crown is needed to preserve the integrity of the tooth and maintain its function until the replacement permanent tooth is ready to come in. Our ceramic crowns are a great alternative to the traditional stainless steel crowns when parents wish to avoid the use of metals in their child. Our ceramic crown replicates the function and appearance of natural teeth.
