Safeguarding Smiles: What to Expect From Pediatric Care

childrensmilebroandsisYou may not know exactly what to do when it comes to protecting your child’s smile. This can feel like quite a challenging experience, since your priorities are set on ensuring your child remains comfortable in addition to finding a way to keep your child’s teeth and gums extremely healthy. Especially for parents who have ever had a not-so-positive dental experience, attempting to feel good about scheduling pediatric dental care can feel a bit traumatic. Before you make assumptions or feel stuck, we invite you to contact us and to learn more about the children’s services we offer. We empathize with your feelings and would like to assure you that your child will be in excellent hands during visits at our practice. Consider the following:

Gentle Care

One of the scariest things is to place the comfort of your child into someone else’s hands. The good news is that we strive to ensure your child feels secure and at ease. First, we will allow your child to become familiar with the dental practice environment, while explaining the interesting instruments. Before beginning treatment, your little one will have time to adjust to the new surroundings. In addition, we offer sedation options if your child needs a little extra relaxation, particularly for specific treatments. To erase any anxiety, nitrous oxide (commonly called laughing gas) offers a safe solution.

Comprehensive Treatments

Beyond preventive care, such as dental checkups and cleanings, we offer comprehensive pediatric dental care. Your child will have access to what he or she needs to maintain a healthy smile, including the following:

  • Composite Fillings: Also known as “tooth-colored fillings”
  • Cosmetic Crowns: Composed of porcelain for a beautiful finish
  • Sports Guards: To protect your child’s smile during athletic activities
  • Dental Sealants: Offering enhanced, long-term protection against tooth decay
  • Sedation: To offer a relaxing, tranquil dental visit
