Young & Polite Children's
My son has seen Dr. Young on several occassions. As with any child, he was very anxious before his first visit. This is coming from a 11 year old that has only been seen by seen the same family physician since he was 2 years old. He doesn't trust anyone else. After his first visit with Dr. Young we found out he had 2 small cavities. He was very nervous to go back to have them filled and Dr. Young picked up on that. He told his receptionist to schedule his appointment on his day off because of his anxiety!!!!! After the procedure he couldn't believe that Dr. Young had even touched him!!! He even said that he hopes Dr. Young will still see him when he gets older because he wouldn't trust anyone else. Needless to say, he is very excited about his appointment in February for his regular cleaning!! Would recommend him to anyone with children!!!
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
