Kid's Dentistry Services
We designed our pediatric dentistry services to meet the unique dental needs of your child at every stage of their development. Here are some of the services at Family Dentistry of Westford.
Routine Dental Examinations & Cleanings
Your child needs regular dental check-ups and cleanings to keep up oral health. Dr. Schofield, Dr. Martin, and Dr. Smagula perform thorough examinations, assess your child's dental development, and provide professional cleanings to keep their smiles bright and healthy.
Dental sealants are a protective shield for your child's teeth. These thin, plastic coatings go on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth and prevent cavities by blocking out bacteria and food particles.
Fluoride treatments help strengthen your child's tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay. We apply fluoride varnish to your child's teeth so there’s an extra layer of protection against cavities.
Dental X-rays detect any dental issues that may not be visible during a routine examination. Our advanced digital X-ray technology allows us to capture detailed images with minimal radiation exposure, ensuring the safety and well-being of your child.
If your child develops a cavity, we offer tooth-colored fillings. These fillings blend seamlessly with your child's natural teeth, ensuring a beautiful and long-lasting restoration.
Monitoring your child's dental development is crucial to identify any potential orthodontic issues early on.
Dr. Schofield, Dr. Martin, and Dr. Smagula know how to check your child's bite, alignment, and jaw growth to see if orthodontic intervention is necessary. If needed, we will refer you to a trusted orthodontist for further treatment.
Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies can happen unexpectedly, and we are here to provide immediate care for your child. Whether it's a knocked-out tooth, a toothache, or a dental injury, our compassionate team is prepared to handle pediatric dental emergencies promptly and effectively.
