5. Parents are always welcome to be with their child during their dental appointments and are involved in all treatment decisions.
Our services include:
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child's first checkup should occur by age 1. At this important visit we will check the baby teeth for early cavities, show you how to care for a young child's mouth properly, go over your child's developmental milestones, and discuss the importance of good oral hygiene.
White Fillings (aka restorations) are used when decay is present on a tooth. After the decay is removed from the tooth, the filling material replaces the lost tooth structure so the tooth can function properly.
Dental sealants are white resin coatings that smooth out the chewing surfaces of the back teeth — the place where your child is most likely to get tooth decay. A sealed tooth is far less likely to develop a cavity, which could require more involved dental treatment.
Cosmetic bonding uses tooth-colored materials to replace missing tooth structure or hide minor defects like chips, discoloration, or irregular spacing. It's a great option for children and teens, who often need to wait for their teeth to mature before choosing a more permanent restoration (like a crown or veneer).
Emergency Dental Treatment
Fortunately, most dental problems do not have to be urgently treated. We can treat a variety of traumatic dental injuries, including teeth that have been chipped, moved, or knocked out entirely. Please call our office for assistance and check out our FAQ section on this website for more information about dental emergencies.
Dental Care for Patients with Special Healthcare Needs
Providing dental care to infants, children, and teenagers with special healthcare needs is an integral part of the specialty of pediatric dentistry. We treat each of these individuals with the goal of preventing dental diseases, providing guidance to their caregivers, and creating a welcoming environment for the patient and their family.
Evaluation of Tongue or Lip Tie
Some infants and children may develop feeding, speech, or other dental issues secondary to a tongue and/or lip tie. Our dentists can evaluate these areas for possible frenulectomies/frenectomies where the tissues can be treated with a laser or other instrument to help alleviate these issues.
We also offer dental exams, teeth cleanings, and much more! Please call our office at (303)776-1194 with any questions.
