Pediatric Dental Care

The purpose of pediatric dentistry is to care for the needs of a developing smile. As your child grows from infancy onward, his or her teeth will require different treatments. Our pediatric dentistry treatments include: 

Preventive & General Care
These treatments help us protect your child's smile from cavities and infection using methods such as fluoride treatments, sealants, and cleanings. During regularly scheduled exams, Our dentist will look for any signs of complications to ensure they are resolved at the earliest stage possible.
General Care
General dentistry procedures such as tooth extractions and root canal therapy can treat infection or prepare your child for a restorative procedure.
Restorative Care
If your child develops extensive decay or injures a tooth, we can provide restorative dentistry procedures such as fillings and crowns to repair any damage. There is a misconception that issues such as decay or trauma are less important when they affect baby teeth. The truth is that these issues will influence the health of permanent teeth. 
Aesthetic Care
As your child grows older, they may become more conscientious of their appearance. We provide cosmetic treatments such as dental bonding and teeth whitening to help your teen feel more comfortable and confident.
Orthodontics
Orthodontic early interceptive treatments can be provided to aid facial development or help your child achieve a straight smile.

We are always happy to answer any questions about the treatments we offer in order to help you make informed decisions when planning care for your child.

  • Baby bottle tooth decay treatment

Oral Hygiene

It is imperative that your child develop good oral hygiene habits at a young age to protect their smile. Your child should visit the dentist at the time of his or her first birthday, or when the first tooth erupts. 

We take the time to explain the importance of a healthy smile to your child. We also explain how they can help us care for their teeth. Our team teaches brushing techniques and advises which type of toothbrush to use.
