Preventive Dental Treatment
The main focus of our pediatric dental care is always prevention because avoiding a problem is always less of a hassle (and less expensive!) compared to having to fix it. Our preventive services are designed to stop the most common childhood dental issues, such as cavities, so that your little one can spend less time in the dental chair and more simply enjoying their life.
Despite everyone’s best efforts, it is still fairly common for a child to develop a cavity. While not ideal, it’s not the end of the world, because Dr. Dean knows how to quickly vanquish any troublesome “sugar bugs” while keeping his little patients comfortable and relaxed. Silver diamine fluoride can stop decay in its tracks, while tooth-colored fillings and pulp therapy can repair damaged teeth and prevent them from needing to be extracted.
It’s safe to say that many children aren’t exactly fans of the dentist. For little smiles with big dental nerves, our children's dental office can use sedation dentistry to make their trip to the dentist relaxing and calm. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is a mild form of sedation and can be very helpful for shorter, more routine procedures. For more involved procedures, we have other options including oral conscious sedation (silly juice), IV sedation, or general anesthesia. Your child’s safety will ALWAYS be our primary concern when recommending dental sedation.
Emergency Dental Care
If you’re a parent, then you’re well aware that children frequently have little accidents. Most of the time, this just results in a spilled drink, but sometimes, you may be caught off guard by a toothache or dental injury. No need to panic, because KidSmiles Dental and Orthodontics has you covered! Just give us a call, and we’ll do our best to get them out of pain and fix their problem right away.
