What Is Pediatric Dental Care?

Pediatric dental care consists of the treatments and services required to protect your child's developing smile and overall oral health. Our dentists provide the diverse range of dental care your child needs, from cleaning their baby teeth to helping them develop a robust oral hygiene routine.

It's no secret that every child is unique, and so is their smile! That's why we create custom treatment plans tailored to meet your kid's needs, lifestyle, and smile goals. We understand that many people suffer from dental anxiety and fear, and we take the time to develop a long-lasting relationship so your child gets to know our team and feels like part of our family.

Treatments for Children

We believe that creating a calm and engaging environment is an important part of helping little ones overcome their anxiety or fear towards dental appointments. Our team cares about making a safe and fun experience, so your child feels accepted and understood. That is why we offer friendly visits, where your little one is given a tour of our office and gets to know our team.

We use kid-friendly language to teach proper brushing and flossing techniques, and we welcome parents into the room so your child knows you're right there with them from start to finish. You can rely on our team to provide gentle cleanings and dental exams, fillings, extractions, and more so your child can show off a healthy, beautiful smile.

Dental Care for Teens

As your teen matures, they take on more responsibility and a more active social life, often fueled by sugary drinks and snacks. Our general dentists provide the dental care they need to protect their teeth, gums, and overall oral health. We carefully monitor the development and alignment of their bite and jaws for signs of orthodontic issues. If we discover your teen needs orthodontics, we will refer you to a trusted specialist. We also offer Invisalign® clear aligners to responsible teens with mild to moderate teeth misalignment.

Education for Our Patients and Parents

As a parent, you want to ensure you have the tools to keep your kids on the right course to protect their smiles. That's why we take the time to educate your child using age-appropriate language to instill the habits required to maintain a great daily oral hygiene routine. We also offer tips and instructions to parents so you can make good decisions for their oral health and encourage your child along the way.

Pediatric Dental Care FAQs

At our practice, we encourage you to voice your questions and concerns. Our compassionate dentists are happy to provide the information and resources you need to make an informed decision regarding your child's custom treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive regarding dental care for children.

How much toothpaste should my child use?

Our general dentists will discuss when to introduce toothpaste into your child's daily oral hygiene routine. When they're ready, you should only use a pea-sized amount and teach your child to spit out the toothpaste instead of swallowing it.

Dental anxiety and fear impact countless people, regardless of age. That is why we offer nitrous oxide to help your child enjoy a calm and relaxing dental appointment.

Our team does everything possible to maximize your little one's comfort, no matter the reason for their dental visit. From biannual cleanings to fillings, we make your child's peace of mind a priority. We perform our treatments with a compassionate touch and offer nitrous oxide to help your kid feel comfortable.
