Dr. Mohamed Hassan is a family dentist in Dundalk, MD. With his dental team at iSmile, Dr. Hassan makes sure that patients of all ages can get the care they need under one roof. Our office staff helps parents fit dental appointments for their children and themselves into their busy schedules. Routine dental visits are an essential part of general dental care for all patients. Our team monitors patients’ dental health in all stages of oral development, from their first baby tooth to restorative care as they age. In addition, encourage parents to bring their children for regular dental appointments to help them develop good oral health habits.
Pediatric Care in Our Family Dental Office
We recommend that parents bring their children for their first dental visit after their first baby teeth emerge. At regular dental visits, we will clean your child’s smile and may take dental x-rays. Preparing your child for their first dental visits will also help alleviate any fear or anxiety. You can also pretend to be at the dental office before their first visit. Roleplaying their first dental visit with them will make the idea more exciting and fun. Our friendly dental team wants patients of every age to feel comfortable when they visit. Everyone in our office, from the front desk to our dental hygienists and dentists, creates a warm and relaxing environment so younger patients can receive the best care possible.
Sealants and Fluoride
Dental sealants and fluoride treatments help combat cavities and prevent decay in younger patients. Sealants are a protective coating that we apply to the back molars. The back molars are more prone to cavities because they can be difficult for patients to clean. Therefore, we recommend dental sealants for patients five to fourteen. In addition, we apply a varnish to the chewing surfaces during fluoride treatments at regular visits. Patients need to refrain from eating for several hours after applying the varnish to ensure that it penetrates the tooth enamel. Fluoride treatments are best for patients over one.
Caring for Aging Smiles
As patients grow older, they may need extra dental care to experience new oral health problems. Our restorative and cosmetic treatments address common dental issues, including dental damage, tooth discoloration, and missing teeth. Dental bonding treatment covers tooth gaps and crooked, chipped, or stained teeth. We use a biocompatible resin for bonding treatment that easily blends in with the natural tooth enamel shade. Tooth crowns fully cover the whole tooth and add structure to worn or damaged teeth. Crowns made of porcelain ceramic also look and feel natural. Dental restorations, including dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures, can replace one or more missing teeth. Our dental office plans restorations for patients and offers implant treatment for long-lasting restorations.
