When should my child see a pediatric dentist?
According to the AAPD, your child should visit a dentist no later than 6 months after their first tooth erupts from the gum. A check-up every 6 months is also recommended in order to prevent cavities and a variety of other dental issues.
OUR PEDIATRIC DENTAL SERVICES
Preventative & Restorative Care
At Kids Stop Dental, our goal is to prevent dental issues from arising before it is too late. We recommend scheduling a check-up appointment every 6 months to assure any and all issues with your child’s teeth are growing properly with no underlying problems.
If we identify that your child has tongue thrust, a habit appliance will be recommended for their treatment. It prevents the tongue from pushing directly against the palate and the backsides of the upper front teeth,thereby eliminating the undesired pressure contributing to the open bite. Because the lips are a muscle, over time, lip and cheek pressure can reduce the open bite, and improve a patient’s bite.
Zirconia (All White) Crowns
The white zirconia dental crown is a metal-free esthetic crown that is certified biocompatible, extremely esthetic and is the most durable material used in dentistry today. While zirconia resembles the traditional porcelain dental crowns that have been used for years, zirconia is more durable.
Nitrous Oxide Treatment
Our practice chooses to employ a nitrous oxide when the patient requires sedation. This sedation is proven to be the safest on the market for pediatric dentistry. Our goal is to help children receive needed treatment easily with minimal discomfort throughout their experience.
Out-patient General Anesthesia
This general sedation option can be performed at a local hospital or surgery center and is offered for children with extensive treatment needs that are extremely uncooperative, special needs patients, or patients that are too young to be a candidate for sedation.
If your child’s tooth has come out too soon due to decay or an accident, it is important to maintain the space to prevent future space loss and dental problems when permanent teeth begin to come in. Our space maintainers can be made of stainless steel and/or plastic, and can be removable or fixed.
This in-office sedation option is a medication that helps to reduce high anxiety in children and strengthen cooperation. The child is not unconscious and breathes completely on their own. This option may also be used with children that are very young and do not understand how to be cooperative in a dental setting, children with special needs, and children who require extensive dental treatment.
