  1. Regular Checkups – during regular checkup visits, Dr. Lynn will carefully examine your child’s teeth for cavities or gum problems. In addition, she will also look for underlying anomalies which may cause problems in the future.
  2. Parental Education – a major component of our pediatric dental services is the education of parents regarding their child’s dental health. Dr. Lynn educates the parents regarding the correct method of brushing their child’s teeth and diet which is good for their child’s dental and overall health.
  3. Teeth Fillings – children often get their teeth front teeth chipped or fractured because of accidents or teeth cavities. In these cases, Dr. Lynn will restore your child’s tooth with tooth-colored composite fillings.
  4. Pulpotomy – in some cases, the pulp tissue inside the milk teeth becomes inflamed and causes pressure to develop inside the tooth. If this happens, we will remove the inflamed pulp tissue to relieve pain and discomfort. This procedure is known as pulpotomy.
    Dental Sealants – to prevent your child’s teeth from cavities, Dr. Lynn will apply thin plastic coatings on the chewing surfaces on your child’s teeth. These coatings are known as dental sealants.
  5. Fluoride Therapy – when children come to us for a routine checkup visit, we will apply a fluoride varnish on their teeth. Fluoride varnishes and gels have been shown to make teeth stronger and more resistant to the development of cavities.
  6. Space Maintainers – in case your child loses a milk tooth prematurely, the neighboring teeth slowly start to take up this space, creating difficulties for the successor permanent tooth to erupt in its proper place. To prevent this, Dr. Lynn places a space maintainer in the gap created by a lost tooth. Once the permanent successor starts erupting normally, the space maintainer is removed.
