Gentle and Compassonate Care for Children
Dr. Hasany knows how important it is for children to feel safe and secure. Her gentle and compassionate manner puts children and parents at ease. Making early dental visits welcoming and stress-free builds trust and helps form relationships that will last for many years.
Dr. Hasany is vigilant in treating early dental issues that could affect emerging permanent teeth, such as thumb sucking, lip sucking, and tongue thrust. For teens and older children, she may recommend orthodontic care to straighten teeth and provide a healthy bite.
Routine Dental Treatments for Children
In caring for children, we cater to their needs. Routine exams and cleanings are geared to keeping baby teeth healthy until the adult teeth erupt. Digital x-rays are safe and give us the detailed images we need to detect any early signs of decay.
Dental cleanings include a fluoride treatment which is a protective mineral that reinforces enamel and helps prevent tooth decay.
There are several treatments that Dr. Hasany may recommend:
• Sealants are a protective varnish placed over the grooves of teeth, usually molars, to prevent tooth decay.
• Tooth-colored fillings are metal free fillings that are bonded onto teeth that have been treated for decay. These fillings require minimal removal of tooth structure, preserving the integrity of your child’s dental anatomy.
• Pulpotomies are like root canal therapy and they are used to treat teeth with decay that has entered the inner chamber of the tooth. Teeth are frequently capped after pulpotomies so full function of the tooth is preserved.
Education is Key for Young Smiles
Dr. Hasany educates children and their parents on proper oral health care techniques and she helps parents nurture an enthusiasm in their children for dental maintenance routines. She may recommend books, songs, and images of beautiful smiles to provide added motivation. Young patients are rewarded with a toy at the end of their appointment.
