Dentistry for Children
We offer a wide range of dental services for kids of all ages, from basic dental check-ups to cleanings, fluoride treatments, restorative dentistry, and more, with top-of-the-line treatment and technology.
In order to have a healthy smile for a lifetime, it is important to build healthy dental habits from a young age. This can be done through regular preventive dental treatments, typically twice a year as recommended by the American Dental Association. These regular visits will allow us to catch any underlying dental issues before they can cause any long-term problems. Our preventive services include:
- Dental Exams & Cleanings
- Fluoride Treatment
Tooth decay can be very common amongst children, and often leads to cavities in the teeth. If left untreated, these cavities can cause tooth pain and create more complicated dental problems. That’s why our team will take immediate action to treat these issues before they worsen. Our restorative services include:
- Tooth-Colored Fillings
- Dental Crowns
- Dental Extractions
We know that the dentist can sometimes be a source of anxiety for little ones. That is why we recommend bringing your child to the dentist as soon as their first tooth erupts, so they can get familiar with dental visits at an early age. Even so, some dental anxieties may still persist, which is why we offer sedation options to make the experience more comfortable for your child. The types of sedation we offer include:
- Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
- Oral Conscious
- General Anesthesia
