Dental services for kids

Your child’s oral health is an important part of their overall wellbeing. Choosing a skilled pediatric dentist to be part of your child’s healthcare team is crucial. A children’s dentist can help ensure proper hygiene habits are formed, the teeth are functional, the child’s mouth and jaw are developing correctly, and that any cavities or dental issues are resolved in a timely manner.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are placed over an entire tooth when there is significant damage or decay. This may be done to stop decay, enhance a tooth’s appearance, prevent further damage, or to save a baby tooth from falling out prematurely.

Baby teeth extraction

Some baby teeth are stubborn and remain put despite the adult teeth growing in. When this occurs, our pediatric dentists may recommend removing the tooth manually. This is to prevent crowding, pain, and orthodontic abnormalities from developing.

Mercury-free fillings

We offer mercury-free fillings to our pediatric patients. When a cavity needs to be filled, or there are cosmetic irregularities on a tooth, we use reliable bonding (a composite resin) instead of amalgams or veneers. This is an affordable and effective option that is free of mercury.
