The Right Tools for Peace of Mind
Our team has close attention to detail, including regarding the equipment we use. We have digital radiographs or x-ray technology designed to give off less radiation than models you might encounter elsewhere. Also, we offer nitrous oxide to help reduce the child’s anxiety during the appointment and help aid them through a long procedure. We even provide an observatory window, where you can check on your child during a procedure and have peace of mind.
A Pediatric Dentist: Who Are They?
Child’s First Visit? Leading Up & When They Arrive
We use words and phrases that help keep the child in a good frame of mind. They’re part of a method called “tell, show, do,” in which we explain the steps of the visit, get the child more acclimated with the environment and dental care, and develop a relationship through trust.
Our Offerings in Pediatric Dentistry
Oral Examinations for Infants
Early dental visits are important in identifying and preventing cavities and diseases. We recommend that your child begins seeing a dentist at the first tooth’s eruption or by age one.
During the visit with us, we discuss your child’s diet, their oral hygiene routines, and any questions you might have. Also, with your permission, we perform an examination, cleaning, and apply fluoride rinse to your child’s teeth.
Dental Care for Those with Special Health-Care Needs
Our skilled team can restore damaged teeth. We can perform composite or amalgam fillings for cavities and do crowns of different colors (from stainless steel to the shade of teeth). Also, we offer pulp therapy for primary teeth, in which we conduct extractions when needed and put in space maintainers.
Dental Examinations for Kids of All Ages
Dental emergencies, whether waking up to unexpected dental pain or an injury sustained to the mouth, can prove stressful. When your child experiences one, give us a call. Our experienced team can prevent infections from arising and help you and your child avoid the need for more costly procedures down the road.
