Cavities & Fillings  Sterling, VA

Cavities and Fillings

Dental fillings are used to treat different dental problems like cavities and broken teeth. Teeth are usually filled with a material called composite resin, which is designed to look like natural teeth. Fillings can also be done with gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam.

Composite resin takes a little longer, though most people still prefer it because it creates natural-looking teeth. It takes more than one layer, and a special light is used to harden the area around the filling.

Oral Health Exams  Sterling, VA

Oral Health Exams

We truly believe that regular dental examinations are important in order for your child to have good dental health and a smile of which he or she can be proud. We start by doing a professional cleaning, removing all of the bad tartar and other buildup on your child’s teeth.

We then do an examination, looking to catch and fix any problems before they become bigger ones. We examine each tooth, looking for any signs of decay, damage, or any other problems, such as signs of infection. We want to correct any problems your child may have before they get any worse.

Preventative Dentistry  Sterling, VA

Preventative Dentistry

We recommend routine dental cleanings for several reasons. When we perform a professional cleaning, we remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. We also clean the parts of your child’s teeth that are hard to reach, such as underneath the gums.

After a cleaning, we will polish your child’s teeth so that they shine! We can also apply a fluoride treatment, if necessary, to help prevent tooth decay.

Restorative Dentistry  Sterling, VA

Restorative Dentistry

We are usually able to fill in broken teeth to make them look like normal teeth. We even use a cement that is the color of your child’s teeth. If that does not work, we offer veneers and caps to cover up any broken teeth.

We can also fix missing teeth and have many options for how we do so. Typically, we like to place implants, which will act like the tooth’s replacement root. On top of the implants, we use crowns, which are artificial teeth, to restore your child’s mouth with normal-sized and shaped teeth.

Sealants  Sterling, VA


Dental sealant is a plastic coating painted on your teeth. It attaches to your child’s teeth, smoothing the rough edges, depressions, and grooves that are typically found on teeth. It gives your child’s teeth a protective coating, helping to prevent tooth decay and cavities.

Sealants are usually done on the back teeth since they are hard to reach and very irregular. Even if your child brushes and flosses properly, he or she may miss some areas. For this reason, sealants are a good way to protect your child’s teeth.

Sedation Dentistry  Sterling, VA

Sedation Dentistry

One of the most commonly used types of sedation is nitrous oxide, which is also known as laughing gas. This helps many children relax during their procedure.

Nitrous oxide is a combination of two different gases–-oxygen and nitrous oxide. We administer the gas through a small mask placed over your child’s nose. The gas will make your child relax without the full effect of anesthesia.

Silver Diamine Fluoride  Sterling, VA

Silver Diamine Fluoride

We believe that fluoride works well to strengthen children’s teeth. It also has been shown to help prevent tooth decay in people of all ages.

For this reason, the American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Medical Association believe that topical fluoride is necessary for good oral health.

Because of this, you may be wondering if your child needs fluoride treatments. Often water is enhanced with fluoride, so additional fluoride treatments are not necessary.

Minimally Invasive Dentistry

The main goal of dentistry is to keep all of our patient’s original teeth if possible. Cascades Pediatric Dentistry and the entire staff will do everything that we can do to ensure that you have a healthy smile.

We are constantly learning to give our patients the very best dental care possible. One way that we do that is by offering minimally invasive microscopic dentistry. Using the newest advances, we can keep as many of your original teeth as possible!

Using microdentistry, our skilled dentist is able to remove only the smallest amount of tooth while restoring it to a healthy state. We also use very strong dental materials that are made to last a long time so that you won’t need to have numerous repairs in the future.

By using a microscope, Cascades Pediatric Dentistry is able to see even the smallest detail on your teeth, allowing for very precise diagnosis and treatment. We have a screen in our office so you are able to see exactly what we are seeing. This allows us to show you what is going on with your tooth so we can discuss your treatment options in detail.
