Services Tailored to Your Child's Needs
We understand the unique dental care needs of children. As such, we provide child-friendly care tailored to your kid's unique needs. We've designed our pediatric dental services with infants and children in mind.
During your child's dental visit, we'll go the extra mile to ensure they get the best dental care and experience. We use the iTero® scanner to take digital impressions of your child's teeth for treatment planning. Our goal is to monitor growth and ensure adult teeth come in properly and remain healthy. Some of the services we offer include:
Whether your child is one or ten, we care about how they feel during their visit. We strive to make our office fun, comfortable, and educational. We have toys, stickers, and TVs in the lobby and treatment rooms to keep children at ease and relaxed during their visit.
Your Child's First Dental Visit
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit a pediatric dentist after the emergence of the first tooth, or by their first birthday. Bringing your child at this age allows our team to evaluate their oral health, introduce you to a good oral care routine, and start to build a foundation of trust with your child.
We're friendly and gentle because we love kids and want them to love dental health. Even more importantly, Dr. Hegazy and our friendly team are committed to reducing children's dental anxiety and treating our patients with compassionate service and empathy. We make it a priority to spend time walking your child through their entire visit, educating them on what to expect, and answering their questions.
Sedation Dentistry for Kids
If your child is anxious about receiving dental work or the procedure requires your child to remain calm for an extended period of time, we can use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help them feel comfortable receive the care they need. Completely painless to administer, this gas is safe, effective, and wears off quickly. Your child will remain awake and alert, but will feel more relaxed and won't be as sensitive to dental procedures. Combined with local anesthetic, nitrous oxide sedation helps your child receive essential dental care, from routine exams to extractions.
Sealants to Prevent Cavities
Daily brushing and flossing aren't always enough to keep your child's teeth free of cavities. The deep grooves and tiny pits on your child's molars can be hard to clean perfectly, making them vulnerable to cavities. We can apply dental sealants to your child's teeth to minimize the risk of tooth decay.
Sealants are tough, thin plastic materials placed directly onto the biting surface or molars. The material is then dried and hardened using a special curing light. This will keep food particles and bacteria from invading the hard-to-clean surfaces of molars. We can apply sealants during your child's regular dental cleaning appointment.
Space Maintainers to Prevent Orthodontic Issues
If your child's baby tooth is knocked out too early, we may recommend using a space maintainer. This is a simple oral appliance that's placed over adjacent teeth to keep them from shifting to fill the gap. The space maintainer keeps that space open for the permanent tooth to emerge when it's ready. The procedure is quick and easy and can save you and your child from orthodontic treatments that are far more invasive, uncomfortable, and costly.
Pulpotomy to Preserve a Baby Tooth
We offer pulpotomies for kids with painful or sensitive baby teeth. Also known as a baby root canal treatment, a pulpotomy is a procedure performed when a portion of the pulp has become infected or exposed through a chip, crack, or break in the tooth. Pulpotomy involves removing the infected pulp to preserve the tooth until it falls out naturally. A baby root canal treatment is less invasive, faster, and less painful than root canal therapy for adults.
At our office, we want your child to maintain a beautiful, functional, and healthy smile for life. With dental fillings, we can restore a decayed tooth to optimal health and prevent future complications. We offer different types of fillings and we'll work with you to choose the right option for your child.
Fluoride Treatments to Protect Your Little One's Smile
Fluoride is a compound that helps protect and strengthen a person's teeth, decreasing the risk of cavities. While fluoride is found in most dental products, like toothpaste and mouthwash, we offer professional treatments to add further protection to your child's smile. Fluoride fights against the bacteria that cause cavities, making it a great treatment option for children who are still developing their oral hygiene routine.
