What Is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through adolescence, including those with special healthcare needs. It emphasizes the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of dental issues in young patients, equipping pediatric dentists to meet the physical and psychological needs of children, making dental visits beneficial.

The Importance Of Pediatric Care

Early dental care is crucial for many reasons:

  • Prevention of dental issues: Regular check-ups can identify problems early on, averting more severe complications.
  • Family education: Pediatric dentists are a resource for parents, offering advice on effective oral hygiene practices for children.
  • Habit formation: Early dental visits establish positive oral health routines that children are likely to maintain into adulthood.
  • Developmental monitoring: Keeping an eye on the growth of jaws and teeth can help prevent and correct potential issues.

Pediatric Treatments We Offer

Infant Oral Exams

These early assessments help monitor your child’s oral health and development from the very beginning.

Cleanings & Exams

Regular cleanings and examinations are foundational to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, tailored to the needs of growing children.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and is a crucial part of preventing tooth decay in children.

Orthodontic Screenings

Early screenings can identify the need for orthodontic treatment, guiding the development of the teeth and jaws.

Sports Mouthguards

Custom-fitted mouthguards protect children’s teeth during sports, preventing injuries.

Root Canals On Primary Teeth

When necessary, we can perform root canals on primary teeth to save a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted.

Restorations On Primary Teeth

We believe in conservative treatment, offering fillings or crowns to restore damaged primary teeth.

Tooth Extractions

When a tooth is beyond saving, we perform extractions with the utmost care, ensuring your child’s comfort.


For children with lip or tongue ties, frenectomies can make a significant difference in feeding and speech development.

Preventative Tips For Children

By age group, we offer tailored advice to foster oral health:

  • Infants: Clean gums with a soft cloth and ensure bottles at bedtime contain only water.
  • Adolescence: Encourage healthy eating habits and proper brushing and flossing techniques.
  • Teens: Stress the importance of oral hygiene, especially as orthodontic treatments may begin.
