Compassionate & Trusted Pediatric Dental Care
We understand that dental needs change over time, which is why we provide an array of dental services to keep your child’s oral health in tip-top shape. Whether they have a dental emergency or need a simple teeth cleaning, we can handle it all.
Pediatric Dentistry Services
Our team is proud to provide individual attention to each of our young clients. We welcome patients and their families to the clinical area to ensure complete satisfaction with our procedures and services. Our team takes special care to keep the treatment environment light and friendly. We offer nitrous oxide/oxygen as well to help children manage any dental anxiety during restorative procedures.
Children are active and curious little folks. We understand that accidents happen, which is why we are available for all pediatric dental emergencies. Whether it’s a knocked-out tooth or chipped tooth, we can help immediately. Avoid significant dental pain or swelling from infection by coming straight to us when the accident happens.
Knocked Out Baby Tooth
It’s natural for baby teeth to fall out easily. Allow our team to help you when your child’s baby tooth gets knocked out suddenly. When a baby tooth falls out, we recommend not trying to re-implant the tooth because it can cause damage to the permanent tooth growth. Visit our office immediately for proper care.
Knocked Out Permanent Tooth
If your child’s permanent tooth gets knocked out, you should immediately contact us. To manage this dental emergency, try to keep the tooth in place or hold it by its crown. If the patient is very young, they could swallow the tooth, so you may want to store the tooth in a container of milk until you get to the dentist’s office.
Toothaches can be excruciating and uncomfortable for anyone. Allow our professionals to determine the cause of your child’s toothache and find the right solution. At the appointment, we will discuss recommendations on managing your child’s discomfort.
When a tooth gets chipped or broken, you need a professional dentist’s guidance on the best treatment option. If you can, we advise that you bring the broken or chipped fragment with you. We may be able to attach the broken piece. If not, we can find an artificial solution that looks natural.
Less harmful than traditional X-rays, digital ones omit 80% less radiation and provide quicker image results. With digital X-rays, we can see exactly what is going on underneath the surface in your child’s mouth. We can then develop an accurate treatment plan for your child.
Regular Dental Cleanings
Preventative dental care is critical during childhood. We administer routine dental cleanings to help children keep their oral hygiene excellent and encourage healthy dental habits. We recommend cleanings every six months to avoid gum disease and decay and monitor oral health.
Ensure your child’s oral hygiene is in excellent condition with regular dental exams. As kids learn the ropes of oral hygiene, we examine their mouths for signs of gum disease, cavities, or other complications. Catching any oral issues early enough can avoid health problems in the future.
We offer nitrous oxide/oxygen (“happy air”) as well as General Anesthesia in treatment rooms to help children manage any dental anxiety during restorative procedures.
