Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric Dentists Go Through Extra Schooling & Training - A pediatric dentist receives an additional 2-3 years of dental schooling and training compared to a family or general dentist. This additional schooling is in the pediatric specialty which is concerned specifically with the oral health needs of children. These dentists are trained in the dental needs, psychology, behavior, and development of children.

Experts in Dental Care for Deciduous Teeth - Only pediatric dentists have the in-depth knowledge necessary to properly treat deciduous teeth. Because pediatric dentists are highly trained in a child’s development and the structural difference of deciduous teeth, they can prevent, treat, and manage oral health problems specific to children.

Pediatric Dental Expertise includes:

  • Proper nutrition
  • Preventing pacifier teeth & thumb sucking
  • Preventing baby bottle tooth decay
  • Treating tongue and lip ties
  • Administering dental sedation to children
  • Teaching a child how to properly clean their teeth
  • Teething problems
  • Orthodontic problems in children
  • Space maintainers for prematurely lost baby teeth

Trained in How to Deal With Children & Special Needs
- Pediatric dentists are trained in how to treat and care for children with special needs by providing a catering environment free of stressors, offering dental sedation, and providing patient and compassionate care to accommodate their needs.

Pediatric Dental Services

Preventative Care - In addition to routine dental cleanings and checkups, we offer silver diamine fluoride which prevents and reverses early-stage tooth decay without the need for dental drilling. Dental sealants prevent bacteria and acids from penetrating the tooth enamel and make it easier to clean the permanent molars to prevent cavities.

Restorative Care - From tooth-colored fillings and dental crowns to space maintainers and frenectomies, we’re committed to restoring the full function, appearance, and structure of your child’s teeth. 

Space maintainers are used to prevent issues with permanent tooth eruption when a baby tooth is lost too soon. We also offer laser frenectomies to treat tongue and lip ties as a painless and minimally invasive alternative to oral surgery. Soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding, pain, inflammation, and accelerate healing.

Emergency Care - If your child is experiencing a dental emergency, contact us right away so we can get them same-day care. We will alleviate pain and remove sources of infection, bleeding, decay, or oral trauma. 

Common emergency procedures include baby root canals, replacing dental restorations, protecting damaged teeth with dental crowns, and as a last resort, tooth extractions.
