Dental Fillings are the most common type of dental restoration used to replace sections of teeth that are missing, damaged or decayed. While traditional dental materials like gold, amalgam, porcelain, and composite successfully restore teeth; recent advances in dental technology have made a wider and improved selection of restorative choices available. Some of the newest state-of-the-art filling materials including ceramic and the latest composite materials, are not only strong and durable, they offer the most aesthetically pleasing and natural looking results.
As part of your child’s dental prevention program, dental sealants are often recommended to protect their permanent back teeth from developing dental decay. In fact according to the American Dental Association, dental sealants reduce the risk of cavities in molars by approximately 80%. Applying dental sealants is a relatively quick and painless process. They are simply brushed on in a series of steps during a child’s dental visit and then cured (set) with a light wand. Sealants are strong and durable and can last for several years. The condition of your child’s dental sealants will be evaluated at each checkup and reapplied if the need arises.
Fluoride varnish is a topically applied product that is brushed onto all sides of your child’s teeth. It is a completely safe and painless procedure that takes just a couple of minutes from start to finish. Once applied and in contact with your child’s saliva the fluoride hardens. The fluoride component is now absorbed into the dental enamel and begins its job of strengthening the tooth. Following the application of the fluoride varnish, your child does not have to wait to eat or drink. The only restriction is that foods are soft and not crunchy for the rest of the day. Brushing and flossing may be postponed for several hours.
Sometimes, due to tooth decay or a traumatic injury, a child may lose a primary tooth early, before the permanent one underneath is ready to come into place. When this happens, the dentist will consider the best way to hold the space left by the baby tooth in order to maintain a clear path for the succeeding adult tooth. While not every situation where a baby tooth is lost early needs an intervention to maintain the space, many times a small dental appliance known as a space maintainer is required to make sure the permanent tooth does not become crowded out of the dental arch or impacted by shifting adjacent teeth.

My 5year old son just came back from his 2nd appointment and i have never seen him so relaxed and happy at the dentist office Dr. Escobedo made my son feel comfortable and easy from the moment he sat on thechair. They did a great job and they know how to work with kids, I could not be happier! Keep up the good work. My 5 year old son was so scared and unhappy with the two previous dentists that we visited, my son needed some work done and none of them would have the patience and i was told he would need to be put to sleep to get the work done and this office did it without anesthesia and is by far the best!
I am extremely happy with the pediatric dentist here. Her and her hygienist make going to the dentist for my kids something they actually look forward to. She is great with answering questions and listening to my concerns. she alsoreally seems to care for my kiddos. She keeps them comfortable, is kind, and has even showed them the right way to brush their teeth. This sets them up for a life time of good oral hygiene habits which is important for them to stay healthy. I can not say enough good things about them.
It was my 7 year old daughter's first tooth extraction experience with Dr. Carolina. I must say that we both had a very pleasant experience. Dr. Carolina was very professional and worked very well with kids. I'd recommend anyone to see Dr. Carolina.
We have seen Dr. Carolina twice times. Both times the staff and the doctor were professional and very nice. The doctor comforted my child and listened to my child's questions and concerns. The wait time is minimal if the other patientsbehave. It is hard to rush crying children so a longer wait time is understandable. Overall I am very happy with Dr. Carolina and I and plan to stay here.
