Pediatric dental care is geared toward helping children develop good oral health habits. At Carlston Dental Group, our dentists and team are experienced in treating children, so we know how to help them feel comfortable during their visits. We also encourage parents to bring their children in for regular cleanings and checkups so that we can help keep an eye on their smiles as they grow and develop. With regular care and preventive treatments like fluoride and sealants, we can help your family keep cavities at bay! Additionally, we offer emergency dental treatments for toothaches, broken teeth, and more. When your child is experiencing an emergency, you can count on us to provide compassionate care and help them feel better fast!
This is perhaps the most common issue that affects kids’ teeth and gums. It occurs when sugars or starches are left on their teeth too long, causing a reaction that damages the enamel. Fortunately, cavities are easy to treat with a simple filling. Fluoride treatments can also help strengthen your child’s teeth and reduce the risk of decay.
A toothache can strike at any time due to tooth decay, a cavity, a loose or missing filling, an abscessed tooth, or even gum disease. The dentist will need to put your child at ease before performing a thorough exam to determine the cause of the pain. Once identified, we can recommend the best course of treatment for your child’s comfort.
Some children suffer from an underbite, overbite, crossbite, or another jaw misalignment that can cause speech problems or problems with chewing food. The orthodontist will be able to determine the best treatment depending on the cause and severity of the condition. Braces are often recommended for orthodontic treatments to correct misaligned bites.
Pediatric dentists have additional training, which allows them to perform specialized care for children’s smiles. This includes treatments for infants and toddlers with baby teeth and adolescents transitioning to adult teeth. This ensures all your child’s oral healthcare needs are met as they grow from infancy through adolescence.
In addition to routine cleanings, your child may need restorative treatment if they have lost a tooth or several teeth due to tooth decay. A pediatric dentist can repair damaged teeth and place restorations, such as dental crowns and bridges, to restore their function. Additionally, they offer orthodontic treatments like braces to help correct crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth. This prevents the need for extractions or other treatments in the future.
