Dental PracticeLutz, FL
When you visit our dental practice in Lutz, we will spend time getting to know your child and learn about any health concerns you might have. By conducting a physical examination and taking X-rays, we can determine the current health of your child's teeth, gums, and jawbone. We will also discuss your child's lifestyle with you and any goals you have for your child's smile. This will allow us to create a comprehensive treatment plan. At Milestones Children & Family Dentistry, we provide holistic dental care to patients throughout the Lutz area. We do so by creating treatment plans that address any issues your child has, rather than focusing on one isolated problem. For example, if your child lives in Florida and has a cracked tooth, but simultaneously does not like the appearance of his or her smile, we can recommend procedures to address both at the same time. With a focus on both form and function, we can help your child's smile stay healthy and beautiful.
In addition to performing routine teeth cleanings and completing beautiful smile makeovers, there are a variety of procedures we complete on a daily basis that are important for your child's oral health. Here are a few of the reasons you should call (813) 518-0641 and schedule an appointment to see Dr. Faddy Makaryus.
Visit a dental practice in «City» to reduce your child’s risk of gum disease
While most people think professional teeth cleanings are only to prevent cavities, they also serve another important purpose in preventing gum disease. Adult tooth loss is incredibly common with gum disease as a leading cause of it. Parents who instill the practice of proper oral hygiene in their children at a young age, decrease the risk of gum disease for their children as they age. At Milestones Children & Family Dentistry, we know that gum disease is typically caused by plaque building up on the teeth and becoming trapped under the gums. When your child practices good oral hygiene, which includes brushing twice a day and flossing daily, the risk of getting gum disease is reduced. However, no matter how diligent your child is, it is possible for plaque to become trapped in hard-to-reach spaces. This is why professional dental cleaning is so important. We can prevent gum disease by performing a deep cleaning to remove all of the plaque and tartar from your child's mouth. If we identify early signs of gum disease, we can treat it right away before it causes irritation or gum recession. If you live in the Lutz area, we invite you to call 813-518-0641 to schedule an appointment for your child's dental cleaning today.
Visit a dental practice in «City» if your child’s tooth becomes damaged
While teeth are made of strong dentin and enamel, it is possible for them to become damaged. If your child is in an accident, plays sports or simply plays with other children, then there is a chance your child's tooth can become cracked or chipped. When this happens, it is important to visit our dental office so Dr. Faddy Makaryus, can complete a restoration in short order. By leaving your child's damaged tooth exposed, you are creating an opportunity for bacteria to enter the tooth and start an infection. We can treat the tooth quickly so it can be restored to full functionality and appearance. Selecting the right dentist office is critical. You will want a restoration for your child that looks natural and blends in so no one can tell the difference. This is something we specialize in at our Lutz dental office.

Visit a dental practice in «City» to have your child checked for oral cancer
Has your child been checked for oral cancer lately? If not, your child should be. Oral cancer impacts both genders, killing one person per day in the United States. At Milestones Children & Family Dentistry, we recommend you have your child checked for oral cancer on a regular basis. Like all forms of cancer, the sooner it is detected and treated, the better chance you have of successfully eradicating it. Dr. Faddy Makaryus, also recommends that you help your child self-examine at home by running the tongue along the gums and cheeks on a daily basis. Have your child look for any bumps, lumps or rough spots that were not there before. If they do not go away after a couple of days, call (813) 518-0641 to schedule an examination with our dental office. At Milestones Children & Family Dentistry, we do not treat cancer, but we can help to determine if anything looks out of the ordinary and whether or not your child needs further testing.
Visit a dental practice in «City» to have your child’s restorations inspected
In our Lutz, FL dental office, we can inspect your child's restorations to ensure they are holding up. Dental fillings, for example, are not designed to last forever. They can become worn down over time, and the initial space they were filling can enlarge due to further decay. This can create the need to have the filling replaced or a dental crown placed around the tooth. At Milestones Children & Family Dentistry, we can inspect your child's dental fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges and bonding when you come in for a dental appointment. If they are looking worn, we will let you know, so you can determine if you want to replace them preemptively or wait until it is necessary. Taking action in advance can sometimes prevent future discomfort, so it is important to consider all of your options.
Visit a dental practice in «City» to plan for your child’s future
At Milestones Children & Family Dentistry, we help our patients to have a lifetime of good oral health with a smile they can enjoy both now and in the future. This requires careful planning. The best case scenario is for your child to maintain all of the adult teeth as he or she ages. To do so, your child's teeth need to be cared for at home and need to have professional teeth cleanings twice per year. This will help to prevent cavities and gum disease. Your child's treatment plan should also include steps that can be taken to keep your child's smile bright and beautiful. For example, we can whiten your child's teeth on a set schedule. When you visit our dental office, we can work together to create a plan that works for your child's health, both now and well into the future. To get started, call 813-518-0641.
