Get your little one on the right path towards a lifetime of healthy smiles with pediatric dental care at our office. With a focus on prevention and education, our team of experts can help ensure your child's mouth is developing properly and minimize their chances of needing more complex treatment later in life. With gentle techniques and a caring approach, pediatric dentistry can keep your child healthy, so they can focus on what they do best: being a kid!
Dental check-ups and cleanings for kids are important. Our friendly dental team will ensure your child's teeth and gums are clean and healthy. We examine their mouth and any necessary x-rays to catch potential troubles early. These visits are a great time to chat about what to expect as your child grows, including tips for oral care at home and food choices that can help keep their teeth strong and bright.
When a pesky cavity pops up in your child's teeth, Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) might come to the rescue! This kid-friendly procedure is quick, pain-free, and doesn't involve any drills or shots. It's like painting a superhero shield on their tooth that fights off decay-causing bacteria and strengthens their tooth. So, if your child has a cavity, fillings aren't the only heroes in town!
Digital x-rays, a quick and efficient method for capturing images of your child's dental health, are used only when deemed necessary by your dentist. Typically, x-rays are recommended every year, though children with a higher risk of oral disease may need more frequent scans.
Dental sealants are like invisible tooth protectors! We paint a clear, safe resin on your child's teeth that hardens under a special light. It acts like a shield, keeping away cavity-causing bacteria and food particles. This treatment is especially great for back teeth, where cavities are most likely to form.
We believe in a "whole health" approach, which includes yummy, healthy food choices. It's not always easy to change eating habits, but it's definitely worth it. Eating well benefits not only your child's smile but their overall wellbeing. Let us help guide you in creating tooth-friendly menus that the whole family will love!
Building a strong foundation for healthy oral habits will establish your child's dental routine for their entire lives. With our educational, compassionate care, we are here to give your child the guidance they need to have healthy dental hygiene that will stick with them for a lifetime.
Fluoride treatments offer a simple, non-invasive way to prevent dental decay. After your child's cleaning, a fluoride-rich gel or varnish is applied, followed by a short period of no eating or drinking. Fluoride initiates a process called “remineralization,” strengthening teeth with essential minerals.
Time is of the essence when it comes to dental emergencies involving your child. Providing prompt care is crucial for their healing process and, most importantly, relieving their pain. Whether it's a toothache, a broken or chipped tooth, or any other dental issue causing your child discomfort, we're here to help. Unsure if it's a dental emergency? Don't hesitate to give us a call immediately. Our team will assess the severity of the situation, guide you through at-home care, and schedule an appointment as soon as possible, ensuring your child can get back to being a happy, carefree kid.
Does your child find it challenging to sit still during dental appointments? Dental anxiety making their visits stressful? We have just the solution: sedation options! Our sedation techniques can alleviate restlessness and anxiety, ensuring your child receives the necessary dental care without pain or stress. By keeping your little one calm and comfortable, we help them develop a positive outlook on dental visits and the importance of oral health. For complex cases, we even have an in-house anesthesiologist to administer general anesthesia. If you think sedation could benefit your child, let us know, and we'll assist you in finding the best option for their needs.
