Children’s Dental Services - An Overview

Taking care of children’s oral health from a young age sets the stage for long-term healthy smiles. Dr. Cha sees children from when they are about two years of age. We start with “happy visits,” with you holding your child in the dentist’s chair, while Dr. Cha performs an exam. If your little one allows, we can also take x-rays and clean those pearly whites.

We make sure every visit is happy and positive. By the time we need to clean children’s teeth or get digital x-rays taken, around age five, we want them to be comfortable in the dentist’s chair. Just like you, your child will need to visit the dentist twice a year to keep those pearly whites in tip-top shape. 

What Are Common Children’s Dental Treatments?

The following is a look at some of the most common pediatric dental procedures offered to our young patients:

Digital X-Rays:

Dental x-rays allow us to detect early tooth decay and other problems not visible to the naked eye, allowing us to treat problems early on before they progress. Our digital x-rays reduce radiation exposure by 90 percent compared to traditional dental x-rays, with their already minimal radiation exposure.

Dental Cleanings:

Professional cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, lowering the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Keeping baby teeth clean and healthy is just as important as caring for permanent teeth.

Fluoride Treatments:

Fluoride treatments strengthen the tooth enamel and make the teeth more resistant to acid attacks, lowering the risk of cavities. Fluoride can also reverse the early stages of tooth decay by remineralizing the tooth enamel.

Dental Sealants:

Your little one’s molars have grooves and crevices that trap food particles and debris, providing the perfect environment for harmful bacteria to flourish. Placing dental sealants on the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars provides a protective barrier against plaque, acids, and bacteria, significantly lowering the risk of tooth decay and cavities.

Tooth-Colored Fillings:

One of the most common children’s dental procedures is treating cavities with dental fillings. We’re pleased to offer tooth-colored fillings to restore your child’s healthy smile with seamless results.

Space Maintainers:

Losing baby teeth prematurely can lead to the neighboring shifting out of alignment, interfering with the placement of the adult teeth when they are ready to come in. Space maintainers maintain the gap left by a missing tooth, minimizing the need for orthodontic treatment down the road. 

Baby Tooth Extractions:

Severely infected or damaged teeth or a crowded mouth may necessitate the extraction of one or more baby teeth. If your child is overly anxious, our nitrous oxide sedation and local anesthetics will ensure the treatment is comfortable and free of stress.

Baby Root Canals:

If a baby tooth has a cavity close to the nerve, we may recommend a nerve treatment called a pulpotomy or a baby root canal. The procedure involves removing the damaged portions of the tooth pulp and filling the space with a special medication to protect the remaining healthy pulp and prevent reinfection. A dental crown will protect the treated tooth and give it back its strength and function.
