Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

They receive additional years of training beyond dental school, focusing specifically on the dental needs of infants, children, and adolescents, including those with special health needs. This makes them uniquely equipped to handle all aspects of a child’s growth and development as it relates to oral health.

Pediatric Dental Services We Offer
Exams, Cleanings, and X-Rays
Regular dental exams are the cornerstone of maintaining optimal oral health for your child. Our comprehensive check-ups include a thorough assessment of teeth, gums, and the overall oral cavity. These exams, combined with professional cleanings, help prevent dental issues before they become problematic. We use gentle techniques to remove plaque and tartar, polish teeth, and provide oral hygiene instructions, making the procedure enjoyable for your child. Additionally, we utilize state-of-the-art X-ray technology that allows us to detect any underlying issues that might not be visible during a routine exam. Our low-radiation X-rays are safe, quick, and provide essential information for comprehensive care.
Fluoride plays a crucial role in strengthening your child’s enamel, making their teeth more resistant to decay. At Park Lane Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we offer professional fluoride treatments tailored to your child’s specific needs. This quick and easy procedure involves applying a fluoride varnish to the teeth, helping to safeguard against cavities. We recommend fluoride treatments every six months or as needed based on your child’s oral health status.
The biting surfaces of back teeth are susceptible to decay because they often have deep pits and fissures that are hard to clean with a toothbrush. Our dental sealants provide a protective barrier for these vulnerable areas, effectively sealing out plaque and food particles. The application is simple and painless; a clear or tooth-colored resin is painted onto the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, forming a shield over the enamel. Dental sealants are an excellent preventive measure that can keep your child’s teeth healthy and cavity-free.
Despite our best preventive efforts, cavities can still occur. If your child requires a filling, we provide tooth-colored dental fillings that not only restore the function of the tooth but also maintain its natural appearance. We use safe, BPA-free, composite resin material that is durable and blends seamlessly with your child’s teeth. The procedure is performed with utmost care to ensure your child’s comfort, eradicating the decay and filling the tooth with precision.
In situations where a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, a dental crown may be the best solution. Our practice offers pediatric dental crowns specifically designed for children’s teeth. These crowns, made from safe, kid-friendly materials, restore your child’s tooth while maintaining a natural look and feel. They not only save and strengthen the affected tooth but also restore your child’s confidence in their smile.
