What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is a specialized branch that focuses on children’s oral health from infancy through adolescence. Pediatric dentists undergo additional years of training beyond dental school to become experts in treating the unique dental needs of infants, children, and teenagers.

We understand that children have distinct dental requirements and developmental stages. Our team is highly skilled in managing the dental needs of growing children, from teething infants to teenagers requiring orthodontic evaluations.

What are the Benefits of Seeing a Pediatric Dentist?

Choosing a pediatric dentist for your child offers several advantages:

Specialized Expertise:

Pediatric dentists have specialized training in child psychology, behavior management, and growth and development, allowing them to provide tailored care to meet each child's individual needs.

Child-Friendly Environment:

Our office is designed with children in mind, featuring colorful decor, interactive toys, and a welcoming atmosphere to help children feel comfortable and at ease during their visit.

Preventive Care:

We emphasize preventive dental care, including regular cleanings, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants, to protect your child's teeth from cavities and other oral health issues.

Early Detection and Intervention:

Regular visits to a pediatric dentist enable early detection and intervention of dental problems, such as cavities, bite alignment issues, and gum disease, to prevent them from worsening.

Education and Guidance:

We are committed to educating parents and children about proper oral hygiene practices, nutrition, and habits that promote optimal oral health.

Our Pediatric Dental Services

At Buckeye Pediatric Dentistry, we offer a comprehensive range of pediatric dental services, including:

Routine Exams and Cleanings:

Regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining good oral health. We perform thorough examinations and cleanings during these visits and provide personalized oral hygiene instructions.

Dental Sealants:

Dental sealants are thin protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to prevent cavities by sealing out food particles and bacteria.

Fluoride Treatments:

Fluoride is a mineral that helps strengthen tooth enamel and prevent tooth decay. We offer fluoride treatments to protect your child's teeth and promote oral health.

Cavity Detection and Treatment:

We use advanced diagnostic techniques to detect cavities in their earliest stages. If we find any cavities, we provide gentle and effective treatment options, including dental fillings.

Orthodontic Evaluations:

Early orthodontic evaluations allow us to identify and address any bite alignment or orthodontic problems that may require intervention.

Emergency Dental Care:

Accidents can happen, and we are here to provide prompt and compassionate emergency dental care for children in need.

Sedation Dentistry:

We offer safe and effective sedation options for children who experience dental anxiety or require complex dental procedures to help them relax and feel comfortable during their visit.
