As children get older they become more aware of their smile. An unattractive smile is often embarrassing for kids and it can stop them from fully expressing themselves. We provide complete restorative procedures including tooth colored filling, crowns for anterior (front) teeth and stainless steel crowns.
Preventive and Diagnostic
Valley Pediatric offers EZPedo Crowns esthetic zirconium crowns for primary teeth as an alternative to stainless steel crowns.
Baby teeth act as a guide for the eruption of the permanent teeth, and develop dental arches with expansion. A space maintainer is made of stainless steel and/or plastic. It can be removable or fixed to the teeth.
Treatment uses myofunctional orthodontic techniques to address the poor oral habits (known as myofunctional habits) that are the real, underlying causes of crooked teeth and uses light, intermittent forces to align the teeth. Myofunctional orthodontic techniques have been practiced by Orthodontists and Dentists around the world for over 50 years.This is done through the use of a series of removable dental appliances that are worn for just 1-2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping. Daily use of the Myobrace combined with regular activities (to improve breathing, muscle function and tongue posture) results in straighter teeth and improved function, leading to optimal facial development and a healthier smile.
A Labial Frenectomy is performed on the tissue that connects the lip to the gums. This may be performed on children or adults to aid with orthodontic treatment or even help with the proper fitting for a denture or appliance.
A Lingual Frenectomy may also be referred to as the release of tongue-ties (ankyloglossia). This procedure is performed on the connective tissue under the tongue. The procedure is often performed on newborn patients to assist with nursing or on toddlers or older patients who need the surgery to help correct speech issues caused by limited movement due the the frenum. Lingual frenectomies help alleviate myofunctional disorders and aid in orthodontic treatment.
