Preventive Pediatric Dental Care
Visiting the dentist from a young age encourages your child to develop healthy habits and hopefully avoid cavities and extensive dental treatment down the line.
Cavity Prevention for Kids
Regularly brushing and flossing the teeth can help prevent cavities, but what else can be done? Some additional prevention options include sealants, fluoride and MI paste.
Treatment under Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Commonly known as “laughing gas,” this is a mild and safe form of sedation used for kids of all ages. It’s beneficial for children who have mild dental anxiety. Using laughing gas can help your child experience a sense of well-being and relaxation during the dental visit, so that he or she will respond more positively.
Treatment under General Anesthesia
General Anesthesia is administered at a different facility (Accredited Non-Hospital Surgical Facility) with a Licensed Medical Anesthesiologist. General anesthesia is for children with severe dental fear and anxiety who cannot cope with multiple dental appointments. This will require consultation with your physician.
Pacifier and Thumb Sucking
It’s completely normal for babies and very young children to suck on their thumbs, fingers, toys, or blankets. If, however, this habit continues past the age of three, it can affect the way the teeth and jaws are growing. It could even lead to orthodontic issues down the road, as thumb-sucking habits often turn into open bites that need to be corrected with braces.
Oral Hygiene for Children
Dental care should be incorporated into your child’s life as early and as efficiently as possible. By the time your child turns 1-2 years of age, you should be scheduling an appointment with a pediatric dentist so they can be evaluated, and have any plaque or build up removed from their teeth by a professional. This is important as buildup can lead to unhealthy bacteria in the mouth, which can eventually lead to tooth decay if left for too long.
