Family Dentistry: What to Expect

When you bring your family to Congressional Dental Care, we treat you as part of our dental family. Our dental care team provides comprehensive and personalized general and restorative dental services for each stage of dental health.

We encourage children and parents to take an active role in their oral health by providing patient education. Regular visits to the dentist can help them build positive relationships with their dentist. Not to mention that it allows Dr. Sarkarzadeh and Dr. Farzin to diagnose any developing concerns early for quicker treatments.

Family Dental Services

We offer comprehensive dental services tailored to all stages of oral health. Our pediatric general dental services include a comprehensive oral health exam, dental cleanings, and disease screenings. Bringing your child to the dentist is essential for their oral health and development. Helping a young child develop a healthy and beautiful smile supports their overall development and even boosts their confidence.

  • Mouthguards – Mouthguards can protect your child’s teeth and jaw from injury while playing sports. All athletes from childhood to adulthood should wear a custom sports mouthguard to prevent tooth loss.
  • Dental Cleanings – Children, teens, and adults should get their teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year. Cleanings help to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.
  • Dental Fillings – Dental fillings are a conservative treatment option for repairing a decayed tooth. The dentist color-matches them to blend with your child’s natural smile for a beautiful result.
  • Wisdom Tooth Removal – Dentists typically remove wisdom teeth from patients that are in their late teens or early twenties. as they begin to emerge, most wisdom teeth don’t have the space they need to grow. Wisdom tooth extraction is a routine dental procedure that can prevent overcrowding or relieve impacted molars.

Preventing Cavities in Children

Preventing cavities, as well as gum disease, is important for your child’s oral and overall health. This kind of prevention largely depends on good oral hygiene habits. The earlier a child establishes these habits, the better for their health. Routine visits to our family dentistry in Rockville allow us to teach children about good oral hygiene habits.

At each visit, we will perform professional teeth cleaning and an exam to spot early signs of decay and dental issues. Spotting issues early gives us time to intervene before they become larger problems.

Early intervention means treatment will be non-invasive and it will preserve your child’s natural tooth structure. Parents help their children prevent cavities by bringing them to their regular dental visits at least every six months. Begin by helping them brush their teeth at least twice a day, and teach them how to floss daily at home.

Our staff will make appropriate and personalized oral hygiene recommendations to help you and your child maintain a healthy smile between visits. The dentist uses the following treatments to give you a cavity-free smile:

  • Dental fillings
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Dental sealants

Family Dentistry FAQs

When should I schedule my child’s first dentist visit?

Once your child’s first teeth begin to erupt, take them to visit the dentist for their first time. If your child’s teeth have not begun to come in by their first birthday, take them to visit the dentist to be sure that they come in soon. Taking proactive measures with your child’s oral care early on can prevent cavities in both baby and adult teeth.

How can I help my children with teething pain?

Many children suffer and complain about oral pain as they are teething. This is entirely normal, but there are some things that parents can do to soothe the pain. Many parents use a saltwater solution with warm water to help relieve tooth pain. Saltwater rinses draw out bacteria and reduce swelling and tender pain from teething.

Are dental X-rays safe?

The radiation from a dental X-ray is low and safe with appropriate protection. According to the American Dental Association, the radiation is about .150mSv to take an X-ray of a patient’s entire mouth. Dental x-rays are safe for patients because they use low levels of radiation exposure. Additionally, dentists take precautions to minimize radiation exposure by using lead aprons to protect patients during the x-ray process.
