Pediatric General Dentistry
We are a family dentistry office, and can provide pediatric dentistry in Richmond. We help young children feel comfortable visiting the dentist so they do not end up suffering from dental anxiety. Children are at a high risk of tooth decay as they struggle to brush their teeth correctly. The grooves in the teeth are called “fissures” and tend to be the areas where younger children develop cavities. We can provide tooth sealants to protect these high-risk areas of the teeth and prevent cavities. We provide fluoride treatments for children to help the enamel become stronger, and to prevent gum disease.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
Do you have high levels of stress in your life? Several patients grind their teeth, which leads to TMJ. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint disorder. The joint connects your jaw to the base of your skill. TMJ can cause severe pain to the jaw and several other areas of the face and neck. If you notice a clicking noise when you yawn or eat, call us immediately. Our Richmond, UT, dental staff will examine your jaw to search for alignment problems, injury, arthritis, and other issues that are causing TMJ. Some patients will find relief through a mouth guard they wear at night. Other patients will need additional TMJ treatments to prevent lock-jaw and intense pain.
