Benefits of Sealants:

  • Painless, quick, and easy

  • Reduce risk of molar cavities by 80%

  • Extremely Durable

Sealants fill in the deep grooves of the back teeth to facilitate easier cleaning during brushing and help prevent cavities. They should be applied when the first permanent molars erupt around age 6.

Resin Fillings

Benefits of Resin Fillings:

  • Less tooth structure removed compared to silver filling

  • Natural tooth colored composite materials

  • Better, longer lasting bond

Resin fillings are tooth colored and can help restore decayed teeth to their natural beauty and function.


Benefits of Crowns:

  • Strengthening teeth

  • Prevent a broken tooth from further damage

  • Restoring teeth to natural shape and size

When a tooth has extensive decay that a tradition filling cannot restore, a full coverage crown in needed. These crowns can restore a tooth to its proper form and function, and is important to keep the spacing until the permanent tooth comes in. Most back teeth are restored with stainless steel crowns, and we offer all white zirconia crowns for the front.

Mouth Guards

Benefits of Mouth Guards:

  • Cushions sports related injuries

  • Prevents teeth grinding

  • Prevents oral bruising and cutting

When a child begins participating in athletic events, a mouth guard can be an important piece of athletic gear. It should be worn during any sport or activity that could result in a blow to the face or mouth. A custom-made mouth guard developed by a pediatric dentist can help absorb the shock that may cause broken teeth and trauma to the lip, tongue, and jaw.

Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies we cover

  • Painful swelling

  • Bleeding that won’t stop

  • Unbearable toothaches

  • Jaw injuries

If your child has a dental emergency, please call our office. If it is urgent and after hours, our doctors will gladly take your call, answer your questions, and meet you at our office if needed.

Nitrous Oxide/Oral Sedation

Benefits to sedation:

  • Increases blood flow and lowers blood pressure

  • Highly effective pain reliever

  • Reduces anxiety and increases comfort

Commonly referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a mild sedative and can help relax a child during dental treatment. The child will remain awake during the procedure. It is also helpful in reducing the gag reflex, which can help the child receive treatment in a comfortable manner.

Hospital Dentistry

Reasons hospital dentistry may be necessary

  • Office IV sedation

  • Local surgery center

  • Extensive decay or unable to cooperate in the dental chair

All of these options are done by anesthesia professionals, so our pediatric dentists can fully focus on the dentistry.

Special Needs

We welcome children with special needs in our office. Both our doctors received extensive training in their pediatric residency with special needs patients.
