What is Pediatric Dentistry?
We are highly trained and skilled when it comes to working with children of all ages and needs. Our goal is to provide your children with a relaxed, comfortable and modern atmosphere that they’ll want to come back to time and time again. Our focus is on preventative and educational care for your family. We offer many pediatric services that are specific to your child’s dental needs.
Why might Pediatric Dentistry be needed?
It can often be difficult for kids to want to go to the dentist. This might have to do with bad experiences in other offices. However, we work with many children and try to make the dental experience fun and inviting. We love teaching kids how to take care of their teeth, and we’ll offer recommendations for parents and guardians as well.
What is involved with Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is a wide scope of dental procedures and services that are unique to each child coming into our practice. We offer preventative care like sealants and fluoride treatments as well as restorative care like fillings, crowns and bridge work. We monitor growth and development, and make recommendations for orthodontic treatment as soon as we notice there may be a problem. We even offer surgical and cosmetic care to our patients on an as-needed basis.
What can your child expect with Pediatric Dentistry?
The first appointment to our office will often include a cleaning and dental exam. The cleaning is performed by a licensed hygienist who works to clear away heavy buildup from their smile. The teeth are polished and flossed, and we’ll check the health of their gums as well. The exam allows our doctors to get to know your child and their teeth. We will look for intraoral problems as well as monitor the overall growth and development happening. X-rays help us to see below the surface so that we can create a unique treatment plan for your loved one.
If your child is in need of pediatric dental care, call us today so that we can schedule an appointment for them to come in.
