Our Pediatric Dental Services
All of our services are specific to your child and their needs. We will always explain all the options and discuss all treatment with you and your child if you desire. Ample time is always given to explain all conditions and treatments. For children and families there is no one size fits all. We can often be flexible.
Preventive and Diagnostic
Pre-formed, ready-to-wear mouth guards can be purchased inexpensively at many sporting stores, but they do not always fit well. They can be uncomfortable and interfere with talking and even breathing.
Sporting goods stores also offer semi-custom mouth guards, in which the plastic is heated and then the athlete bites on it while still warm to provide some level of custom fit.
Your dentist can make a custom mouth guard by taking an impression of your teeth and then creating a device fitted to your mouth for the highest level of both comfort and protection. A custom fitted mouthguard can be particularly important for athletes who wear braces.
Our office can even use your favorite sports team or other designs to create a truly custom mouth guard!
Pain Free & Sedation Dentistry
Our office uses a medical anesthesia team consisting of an anesthesiologist and nurse or second anesthesiologist. The medicines and monitoring equipment that our office uses is the same as what would be used in any modern hospital as is the training that the team receives. We follow the same highest standards and protocols suggested by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
