Are you looking for a family dentist? Look no further than Main Line Family Dentistry. Our friendly dental team welcomes families to our office. We work with families to find the right times for their dental care. Our office staff can find the right appointment times to fit busy schedules that include work and after-school activities. Additionally, our children’s dentistry services in our Bryn Mawr, PA office are a part of general dental care. General dentistry is preventative against future dental problems while also maintaining the current health of the smile. Here you can discover more about how we provide early preventative care for children as well as cosmetic and restorative treatments for adult patients.
Children’s Dentistry in Bryn Mawr, PA
We recommend that parents bring their children for their first dental visit after their baby teeth emerge. Parents need to clean their child’s gums even before their first baby tooth erupts. Using a clean cloth to wipe the gums prevents food debris and bacteria buildup. Once the child’s teeth emerge, parents can use an infant-sized toothbrush to gently brush their teeth.
During your child’s first visit to our office, we will typically provide:
- Dental cleaning
- Preventative exams
- Digital x-rays
Our friendly dentists aim to create a comfortable environment for patients of all ages. Before your child’s first visit, we encourage you to roleplay as a hygienist when you brush their teeth. Reviewing what happens during a dental cleaning can ease fear or anxiety in younger patients.
Dental Sealants and Flouride
We provide dental sealants and fluoride for children to prevent cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay. At routine appointments, we can apply sealants to the back molars. Sealants are thin plastic coatings that cover the chewing surface. The sealant covers the grooves of the teeth and protects the molars which are prone to decay. Our fluoride treatments strengthen the tooth enamel. For this treatment, we place fluoride gel in a tooth tray. We place the tray on the teeth for several minutes. Once we remove the tray, we will ask patients to not eat or drink for at least 30 minutes. During this time, the fluoride penetrates the tooth enamel.
Dental Treatments for Adults
As we age, we can begin to develop dental problems as a result of health issues, medications, injuries, or tooth wear over time. Our dental office helps patients restore their smiles with dental implants, porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, and whitening treatment. Dental implants are the best restorative option for patients missing one or more teeth. They can restore a single missing tooth or secure a bridge or denture. Porcelain veneers and dental bonding treatment cover dental injuries, gaps between the teeth, and tooth discoloration. We also offer take-home whitening treatment to erase years of staining from the smile. Our cosmetic and restorative treatments help patients look and feel their best.
