Pediatric Dentistry

Our experienced dental team welcomes all ages! We would love to take care of your whole family’s dental health, and give you a break from the hassle of scheduling at multiple dental offices.  We offer a variety of services for children in our practice such as cleanings,  exams, x-rays, sealants, fluoride treatments, fillings,  emergency extractions, and extractions for orthodontics.

Our primary goal is to emphasize the importance of preventive care for our patients so that we can save you time and save stress for your child having to be in the dental chair for anything other than routine check-ups!

Sometimes children may need extra help to have their dental needs met. We offer nitrous oxide to calm our patients in this setting. Nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) sedation is most commonly used for longer appointments, patients who have dental anxiety, a strong gag reflex, and/or patients that have difficulty sitting still.

If your child has extensive treatment needs such as nerve treatment, crowns, cosmetic crowns for front teeth, space maintenance or expansion, we will refer you to a local pediatric specialist for care!

Happy Visit

It is most important that young children learn to love the dental office. If we set the stage for prevention and happy, educational visits, we can predict a life free of dental fear.

At that first appointment, we want to spend the bulk of the time educating. This is when we do a knee-to-knee examination.

Nitrous Oxide

The combination of inhaled nitrous oxide and oxygen is a safe and effective way to manage your child’s pain and anxiety during their dental appointment. The effects of nitrous oxide are fast acting and wear off quickly so patients are able to return to all daily activities before they leave our office.

Fillings

Dental fillings are used to treat cavities and broken teeth. Teeth are usually filled with a material called composite resin, which is designed to look like natural teeth, but occasionally silver fillings are needed for better various reasons. Before your child gets a filling, your child will receive a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and gums around the tooth. We will then clean away the bad and decayed part of the tooth so that it is ready to be filled. 

Cleanings & Exams

Routine dental exams and cleanings are vital in maintaining your oral health. Having your teeth cleaned every 6 months along with the dentist’s comprehensive exam is the best way to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. In some cases it has the ability to arrest early decay in the enamel.

Sealant

A sealant, and it is a thin, protective coating that adheres to the chewing surface of your back teeth. They prevent cavities from forming in the deeps grooves of the teeth and in places that tooth brush bristles cannot reach.
