Pediatric Dentistry Services and Treatments

Prophylaxis (Teeth Cleaning)
We provide routine check-ups and cleanings from infancy to teenage years! Your child will experience a fun and friendly environment while getting their teeth gently and thoroughly cleaned. During these visits, we evaluate brushing techniques and dietary habits and create a personalized plan to coach you and your child to improve their oral health and prevent cavities.

Tooth Colored Fillings
Dental materials are always improving and we offer the latest and greatest white filling material for your kid’s teeth. Depending on individual needs, we offer various options for tooth colored fillings - bioactive, BPA-free, and fluoride-releasing.

Dental Sealants
Food, especially sticky and starchy ones, easily get trapped in the crevices of our teeth and if left long enough can allow cavities to form. Sealants are a protective layer that is placed in these grooves and is a super easy and effective way to prevent cavities during childhood years!

Zirconia or White Crowns

Sometimes a cavity is too big to place a filling and a crown may be needed. While stainless steel crowns are the gold standard in pediatric dentistry, technology has come a long way to provide a durable, yet esthetic alternative. We offer white zirconia crowns in our office!

Stainless Steel Crowns
Stainless steel crowns are tried and true for those baby teeth that have large decay. We offer stainless steel crowns for strong protection and durability of broken down teeth and can even place these silver crowns on baby teeth as a minimally invasive/drill-free option known as the Hall Crown Technique.

Silver Diamine Fluoride
Silver is antimicrobial and fluoride promotes remineralization. In pediatric dentistry, we use them together in the form of silver diamine fluoride (SDF). It is a liquid medicine applied to cavities that allows them to arrest and remineralize. SDF is a great alternative especially for those kids that are too young or too wiggly to sit for traditional dental treatment.

Nerve Therapy
When a cavity is deep enough or close to the nerve of the tooth, nerve therapy may be indicated. When this happens, medication is applied either directly or indirectly to the nerve of the tooth. Our office utilizes the best medicaments with the highest success rate to preserve these teeth as long as possible.

Tooth extractions may be indicated for a tooth that is severely decayed, infected, over-retained, fractured, or for orthodontic purposes. Our office makes these “tooth wiggles” as easy-peasy as possible!

Space Maintainers
Space maintainers may be needed if a tooth is lost too early due to decay or trauma. They can be fabricated chair-side or using a digital impression. These are usually semi-permanent and if needed, we will show you how to keep them as clean as possible!
