Pediatric Dentistry

By receiving regular dental checkups from a young age, your child learns good oral hygiene habits for life. We understand the importance of early care, which is why we specialize in pediatric dentistry. Our pediatric dentists receive additional training to manage the needs of young patients and their teeth, from the eruption of the very first tooth.

Our pediatric dentistry services include the following.

Infant Oral Health Exams

We recommend that children receive their first oral health exams when their first baby tooth is visible. We will assess your child for risks like cavities, genetic disorders, and problems associated with conditions like diabetes, asthma, hay fever, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. We will then advise you on preventive methods to take at home, such as diet recommendations.

Preventive Treatment

It is best to prevent problems before they occur. Children with deep crevices in their molars or at risk of tooth decay can receive dental sealants to avoid cavities. We also offer fluoride treatment to promote the growth of strong, healthy teeth.

Orthodontic Services

We assess and correct alignment and bite problems as early as possible to reduce treatment time. In addition to traditional braces, we offer Invisalign and orthodontic devices.

Emergencies

Should your child suffer an accident, our emergency services can save a knocked-out or fractured tooth. Our emergency services are also available 24 hours a day for problems like severe toothache.

Gum Disease Treatment

In addition to pediatric periodontal disease treatment, we help children manage conditions including ulcers, short frenulae, and mucoceles.

Habit Counseling

We can provide your child with customized treatment to stop thumb sucking or pacifier use.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation can help an anxious child cope with a visit to the dentist. We also offer sedation for very young children, kids with special needs who are unable to sit still, and anyone who suffers from a strong gag reflex.
