Parents frequently ask us when they should first bring their young children to the dentist. Dr.Bansal recommend the first visit for children’s dentistry be around the age one. It is vital that children start their early dental experiences with fun, easy, non-threatening visits. Our dental hygienists and doctor are great with the little ones. Children learn about the suction (“Mister Thirsty”), the water squirter, the bright light that they get glasses for, and if they are ready for it, the tickling toothbrush.
A “root canal” is a term used to describe the natural cavity in the center of a tooth. This area contains a soft area known as the pulp chamber that houses the nerves. Secondly, if it becomes irritated or infected due to cavities, trauma or decay, root canal therapy is necessary. Furthermore, if left untreated, the infection can cause an abscess, which can lead to swelling of the face and neck, and bone loss around the roots of teeth.
The dentist examines and x-rays the tooth, then administers local anesthetic. After the tooth is numb, the dentist places a small protective sheet called a “dental dam” over the area to isolate the tooth and keep it clean and free of saliva during the procedure.
The dentist makes an opening in the crown of the tooth. Very small instruments are used to clean the pulp from the pulp chamber and root canals and to shape the space for filling.
The root canals are filled with a biocompatible material, usually a rubber-like material, which is in turn placed with an adhesive cement to ensure complete sealing of the root canals. In most cases, a temporary filling is placed to close the opening. The temporary filling will be removed by your dentist before the tooth is restored.
Finally, your dentist will place the crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function.
Sealants are thin, protective coatings made of a special type of plastic painted on the chewing surfaces of your teeth. They work to seal off the grooves and pits on your teeth where bacteria collect.
Sealants prevent the most cavities when applied soon after permanent molars come into the mouth (around age 6 for 1st molars and age 12 for 2nd molars). Will it hurt to get a sealant? Getting a sealant is easy and does not hurt. The tooth is cleaned and a gel may be placed on the chewing surface for a few seconds.
Cleaning the tooth is essential for proper sealant. This ensure that the bacteria is totally been eliminated before sealant is applied. Sealants are a quick, easy, and painless way to prevent cavities. A tooth without a cavity is stronger and healthier than a tooth with a filling or untreated decay. Sealants are also less expensive and easier to apply than fillings.
Etching doesn’t hurt. It’s a process of scrapping the tooth or teeth in order to roughen the teeth slightly. This prepares the suffice for the seal coat by making the tooth porous as to accept the sealant coating.
Sealants have shown to still work 9 years after placement. However, sometimes they do fall off, so they should be checked at regular dental appointments. If a tooth loses a sealant, the protective shield is gone and the tooth can get a cavity. Missing sealants are easy to replace.
Sealants are one part of a child’s total preventive dental care. Visit CDC’s Children’s Oral Health for additional ways to prevent cavities. Once cured, sealants protect against 80% of cavities for 2 years and continue to protect against 50% of cavities for up to 4 years.

At Dental Arts of Huntley, we do everything in our power to save your natural teeth. Luckily, if a tooth cannot be saved, we make extraction our last option. Mostly, patients only require local anesthetic during tooth extraction. Our local anesthetic blocks sensations of pain in a specific area. Lastly, a patient will only feel a light pressure at the extraction location. Additionally, for most tooth extraction cases, we will perform socket preservation bone grafting to fill the empty socket with sturdy natural bone. In some cases, Dr.Bansal can perform a tooth extraction and replace it immediately with a dental implant, cutting down on the need for multiple appointments, Procedure and additional costs.
Wisdom teeth are molars that begin to develop in the back of the mouth during the late teenage years. Most often wisdom teeth do not have the adequate space to grow in properly. As a result, they become impacted. More importantly, impacted teeth can damage your surrounding teeth, easily become infected, or cause your bite to shift as teeth become crowded. It’s important to remember that our team is experienced in wisdom teeth extraction. Moreover, we have the technology and surgical suite to perform the tooth extractions in-house. Also, we offer advanced sedation options. This means we can make your surgery comfortable and anxiety-free. Ultimately, choosing an experienced and educated team is vital to ensure the wisdom teeth are removed successfully. Crucially, we want to remove them without damage to the jaw or nerves and to improve healing.
