Dentistry For Children Q & A

What makes a great children’s dentist?

Since proper hygiene is the building block to a clean, healthy smile, Dr. Bajwa takes great pride in not just cleaning teeth, but in giving children and everyone else the knowledge and tools they need to maintain excellent dental health. For example, children suffering from dental decay may benefit from using fluoride products like mouth rinses and gels.

Dr. Bajwa also often provides sealants, which are thin plastic coatings that cover chewing surfaces on teeth and help prevent decay. The process is simple:

  • The child’s tooth is cleaned with a special toothpaste
  • A cleansing piece of cotton is rubbed gently on the tooth
  • The sealant is then painted onto the tooth

One sealant application can last for 5-10 years. No matter what your child’s issue may be, Dr. Bajwa has you covered.

What other treatments might my child need?

Fillings, which have been around for hundreds of years, are common. But fillings have dramatically improved in recent years. They’re now usually made from tooth-colored composites, cementable resins, and porcelains.

Root canals are also common procedures for children. They’re necessary when the pulp of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected. Crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain then protect the infected tooth, while providing amazing cosmetic results.

Dr. Bajwa can help the most nervous children feel relaxed and comfortable, even when it comes to nerve-wracking procedures like root canals and crown placements.
