Preventive care is the cornerstone of pediatric dentistry. It includes routine dental exams, professional teeth cleanings, and dental sealants. Regular check-ups allow our dentists to detect potential problems early, saving your child from future discomfort and more extensive treatments. Dental sealants provide a protective barrier for the chewing surfaces of teeth, significantly reducing the risk of cavities. Fluoride treatments are also part of preventive care, fortifying the tooth enamel and preventing decay.
When dental issues occur, restorative treatments help to return your child’s smile to health and vibrancy. Fillings are used to repair cavities and prevent further tooth decay.
Pediatric crowns may be recommended for severely decayed baby teeth, preserving tooth structure and ensuring proper spacing for the developing adult teeth. In some cases, pediatric root canal therapy (pulpotomy) may be needed to treat a tooth where decay has reached the nerve.
Orthodontics is an essential part of pediatric dentistry, aimed at correcting tooth and jaw alignment problems. This may involve traditional braces, clear aligners, or early interceptive orthodontics, depending on your child’s age and developmental needs.
Our dentists monitor your child’s growth and development to ensure timely intervention, minimizing future complications and potentially reducing the need for more extensive orthodontic treatment in the future.
In the case of dental emergencies, our dedicated team is ready to provide urgent care. Whether it’s a broken tooth, toothache, or a knocked-out tooth, immediate professional attention can make a significant difference in treatment outcomes.
We prioritize these cases to alleviate pain and prevent further damage.
Our Office Environment
We are devoted to creating an atmosphere of comfort and ease for every patient. Our team is dedicated to building positive dental experiences for each child, thereby fostering a healthy attitude towards oral care that lasts a lifetime.
To create a welcoming environment, we have installed televisions above every dental chair and added video games in our reception area, making our office a space where every child can feel at ease.
We firmly believe in the power of parental support and thus invite parents to accompany their children during all visits. For those who need it, we also offer nitrous oxide to aid in creating a more relaxed and comfortable experience for your child during their visits.
Our advanced technological systems, including an intraoral camera and digital radiographs, have been adopted to enhance your child’s dental experience. With these, your child can remain seated comfortably in the dental chair while undergoing comprehensive x-rays and examinations. Our dentists are always prepared and happy to answer any queries you might have throughout your child’s visit. During routine check-ups, our dentists will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth, keeping you informed about any potential dental issues. Whether it concerns at-home oral care or future treatments, our dentists are ready to guide you through every stage of your child’s dental development.
