Fitchburg, WI (PRWEB) August 24, 2017
Passionate about pediatric dentistry in Fitchburg, WI, Dr. Angela Cotey is pleased to announce the availability of appointments for new patients at her practice with or without a referral. She understands that a visit to the dentist, whether for a checkup and cleaning, filling or orthodontics, can shape the way young patients view oral health. With this in mind, she offers compassionate care in a fun and engaging atmosphere.
Genetics plays a major role in oral health. For example, issues such as allergies or low saliva flow can create a dry environment in the mouth that allows bacteria to proliferate and attack new teeth. This often results in cavities and gum disease at a very young age. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that parents take their children to a dentist before their first birthday. Personal oral health risks may be identified at that visit, and parents can learn about developmental milestones and how best to care for their young child’s teeth. While any dentist can provide oral health care, pediatric dentistry in Fitchburg, WI, focuses on techniques for making early visits comfortable and enjoyable. This prevents future anxiety and dental phobias and encourages a positive approach to dental care for a lifetime.
Infection and decay of baby teeth can cause serious pain and lead to early tooth loss. Dr. Cotey is often able to perform a pulpotomy, also known as a children’s root canal, to eliminate the trauma and restore oral health. She removes the damaged pulp at the heart of the tooth and restores the structure so that it lasts until the permanent tooth is ready to take its place. Pediatric dentistry in Fitchburg, WI, can also help the dentist to predict when a child will require orthodontics. By recognizing these needs at an early stage, Dr. Cotey is able to offer interceptive treatments that may significantly decrease how much time children must wear braces.
