Being a mom herself, Dr. Kapadia knows how important it is to instill great oral hygiene at an early age. We provide preventative services for adults and children, including cleanings, fluoride treatment, exams, and xrays. If your child needs restorative therapy, Dr. Kapadia is happy to treat children of all ages, and even offers nitrous oxide to ease the fears of your little one.
In order to make sure your child has a great dental visit, we encourage positive reinforcement at every appointment. We try to make visits fun for the children, and even have a dedicated play area in our reception with video games. Our caring staff will make sure your child has a fantastic time watching their favorite cartoon or movie, and they’ll even be able to pick a prize from our treasure chest after their visit.
We at Kirk Family Dentistry would also like to extend a free dental exam for any child age 6 months to 24 months. It’s our way of making sure your children get a healthy start with their smile!
We conduct a comprehensive dental examination every six months. The dental exam includes a visual oral cancer screening followed by a thorough exam to detect caries (cavities) and any pathology that may be present. To detect cavities we conduct a radiographic, visual and tactile exam.
X-rays provide critical assistance in treatment planning, including information such as development of dental decay, bone loss, irregularities in bone structure and infections at the apex of teeth. We take a full mouth panoramic xray once every 3-5 years and 4 bitewing x-rays once a year. We use digital radiography to capture high resolution images with very low radiation.
Prophylaxis (Routine cleaning) and Flouride
