The job includes duties like diagnosing oral diseases, creating treatment plans, interpreting x-rays and diagnostic tests, monitoring growth and development of teeth and jaw and fixing dental injuries. We specialize in pediatric dentistry and pursue to provide the best dental services for your children.Dental Services for Children
There are several dental services for children :
- Preventive services
- Restorative services
- Emergency services
Preventive oral hygiene is so important in order to not get to the point where restorative services are needed.Lee Dentistry Oxford provides educational services not only for the kids but also the parents to let them know how to best prevent dentist emergencies and create good habits. This includes proper teeth brushing, flossing, eating habits and the use of pit and fissure sealants. Furthermore, children around the age of 11-14 are advised to wear braces. It is important to create a fun and educational environment for the kids to teach them the importance of good oral hygiene.
In case your child does need restorative services, that can include fillings crowns and prosthetics. Other procedures could be root canals, extractions or dentures. Our team at Lee Dentistry will discuss the options with you before the procedure and suggest a treatment plan to restore teeth that are cracked or missing.
Urgent dental care sometimes is necessary and can be stressful for the patient and/or the family members. Our family dentists at Lee Dentistry attempts to provide fast and reliable dental emergency services such as knocked out teeth to provide permanent damage.
Taking Care of Your Children Dental Needs
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) includes that dental care for children is an “Essential Health Benefit”. Parents should consider dental saving plans to be prepared. According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “about 23% of children ages of 2 to 11 years have at least one primary tooth with untreated decay and 20% of adolescents ages 12 to 19 years have at least one permanent tooth with untreated decay”. As commonly known, dental hygiene is also essential to general health and therefore should be taken seriously by parents.
