As the name suggests, pediatric dentistry is a specialty field that focuses on oral care for children. At these early ages, the majority of treatments are preventive and restorative rather than cosmetic. We want your children to learn healthy habits and get the best start to oral health, so we focus on hygiene and addressing problems like tooth decay and overbites early, so they don’t have a chance to worsen.
Some examples of the treatment we provide include:
Many of our adult patients visit us with problems that developed at an early age. These could be severe tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even missing teeth. When issues are addressed at an early age, we have the opportunity to treat them before they become severe and have a lasting effect on your child’s oral health and wellness. We can also instill good oral hygiene, and reduce the anxiety and fear many often have when visiting the dentist.
The first step to getting treatment from Embrace Dental is to call and schedule an initial appointment for an exam, x-rays, and cleaning. During this first meeting, our dentist will perform a comprehensive inspection of your child’s current oral health and wellness and can then discuss with you your future treatment. If there are any outstanding issues we see during the appointment, we can begin to create a plan to help your child reach optimal oral health and wellness at a young age.
We have laughing gas available to help children relax during their dental procedures. Laughing gas is a highly effective method of sedation that will help reduce feelings of dental anxiety. It’s regarded as one of the safest methods of sedation in dentistry. When laughing gas is inhaled into the body, it has a calming effect that lasts throughout the dental procedure. It is non-toxic and will naturally remove itself from your body after use. Patients on laughing gas are fully conscious and responsive during the procedure.
