Our Pediatric Dental Services in Delmar

Early Infant Oral Care

A radiant smile is a lifelong treasure, and this comprehensive guide on early infant oral care highlights the significance of initiating oral care even before your baby’s first tooth emerges. By introducing a toothbrush, using the appropriate amount of toothpaste, and teaching correct brushing techniques, you can foster lifelong oral hygiene habits for your little one. Engaging and enjoyable dental care routines, scheduling regular dental checkups, and reinforcing healthy habits for overall oral health are critical in ensuring your child’s teeth and gums stay in top-notch condition. With commitment and love, you can help your child cultivate a dazzling smile worth treasuring.

Preventive Care

Preventive dental care is the cornerstone of nurturing a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums for our children. It is vital to begin early with regular check-ups, cleanings, and proper oral hygiene habits. Pediatric dentists suggest scheduling a child’s inaugural dental visit when their first tooth appears or by their first birthday. During routine visits, dentists will track tooth development, offer orthodontic referrals if necessary, and educate parents and children on proper nutrition and oral health habits. Dental sealants and tailor-made mouthguards for sports are additional preventive measures that safeguard children’s teeth from cavities and injuries. Collaboratively, we can assist our children in attaining and sustaining healthy, stunning smiles throughout their lives.

Diagnostic, Restorative and Surgical Care

Thorough pediatric dental care is crucial for maintaining your child’s oral health, and our adept pediatric dentists at Where Smiles Grow provide an extensive array of diagnostic, restorative, and surgical services to address any dental concerns. From tooth fillings and pulpotomies to dental crowns and tooth extractions, we devise personalized treatment plans based on each child’s distinct needs. Our cutting-edge facilities boast advanced radiography technology and laser soft tissue surgery, ensuring a safe, comfortable, and efficient dental experience for your child. Entrust our empathetic team to establish a welcoming atmosphere and deliver exceptional dental care for your child’s enduring oral health.

Nutrition and Oral Health

Cultivating lifelong dental wellness for your child involves integrating proper nutrition and effective oral care habits at home, along with regular dental check-ups. Provide child-friendly, nutritious snacks like crunchy fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, and dairy products to promote strong teeth, and help your child develop efficient oral hygiene practices from an early age. Foster a positive outlook towards dental visits and care, and remember that our pediatric dentists are here to guide and support you every step of the way.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is a solution for children who experience fear and anxiety associated with dental treatment. At Where Smiles Grow, we offer a range of sedation options, including nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and general anesthesia in a hospital setting. Our objective is to enable children to undergo treatment or allow dentists to perform procedures as safely and efficiently as possible without causing long-term negative effects on a child’s dental experience. Safety is always our top priority, and each of our doctors has completed advanced training in medical emergencies. Contact us today to schedule your child’s appointment.

Custom Mouthguards

Custom mouthguards are essential for your child’s safety in sports, as they offer superior protection and comfort compared to store-bought alternatives. Specifically designed for your child’s mouth, these mouthguards provide a snug fit, minimizing the risk of oral injuries such as broken teeth, lacerations, and jaw fractures. By investing in a custom mouthguard, you can ensure your child’s well-being during various sports activities, including baseball, softball, football, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, and more. Consult with your pediatric dentist today to obtain the perfect custom mouthguard tailored to your child’s needs.
