  • What can I expect for my child's first visit?

    Our goal is to make sure that your child has a “Happy Visit” at their first appointment. We know that a visit to the dentist involves new sights and sounds that can be overwhelming for your child, which is why we focus on making your child feel as calm and comfortable as possible. We hope to motivate your child to take responsibility for their healthy smile for a lifetime.

  • How often should my child come in for an appointment?

    We recommend that your child comes in for regular cleanings and check-ups at least twice a year. This allows us to remove buildup that can cause irritation and tooth decay and provide fluoride treatments to strengthen your child’s tooth enamel.

  • What are the common issues of dental health in children?

    Children face many of the same dental issues as adults, but they also have unique needs related to their developing teeth. Our care focuses on:

    • Tooth decay and cavities
    • Gum diseases
    • Oral habits like thumb sucking
    • Orthodontic concerns, such as misaligned teeth
  • What is pulp therapy?

    If your child starts to complain about sensitivity or constant pain, or if the tissue around a tooth is swollen and painful, they may have pulp damage. Damage to the interior living part of the tooth can occur because of trauma, decay, or other infection. The ‘pulp’ refers to the live part of the tooth.

    If the pulp is damaged, it is important to retain as much of the living pulp as possible, while also treating the infection or removing any damaged sections. One way we do this is with a pulpotomy.

    A pulpotomy can be performed if the pulp root is unaffected, and just the tip of the pulp is damaged. If the root is healthy we will remove all the decay and then place material over the remaining pulp to protect it. Finally, we will place a crown. By saving the pulp, your child has a greater chance of producing a healthy adult tooth.

    A pulpectomy is performed if the damage has extended into the tooth root, we will need to remove all of the living material and fill the space — just like an adult root canal. We will place a crown to help with spacing when the adult tooth is ready to come in.
