What is a pediatric dentist?

The Pediatric Dentist is a specialist who is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen-age years. The very young, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. The Pediatric Dentist is best qualified to meet those needs.
Pediatric Dentists have had special training, which allows them to provide the most up-to-date and thorough treatment for a wide variety of children’s dental problems. They are trained and qualified to treat special patients, who may have emotional, physical, or mental handicaps.

Pediatric Dentists also offer sedation, as a means to make treatment more comfortable for the young, apprehensive, or special needs patient. Because of this specialized training and commitment to comprehensive oral health, many parents wisely choose a pediatric dentist to treat their children.

 

New Technologies

LASER DENTISTRY:
You won’t find laser dentistry offered in every Pediatric dental offices. In our effort to always be on the forefront of dental technologies that will make your child/children dental treatment both more successful and more comfortable. Using a combination of water and laser energy, the LightWalker can perform most dental treatments without anesthesia, pain and discomfort. The heat and vibration from traditional dental drills cause most of the dental pain experienced by patients, but the LightWalker works so quickly it never builds up any heat and vibration. This means the nerves of the teeth never feel the LigthWalker working, so they don’t respond to it with pain. The precise and less invasive approach of the LightWalker helps conserve tooth structure to help teeth function at their best so they last longer. In addition, you probably won’t have to worry about injection pain or experience the numb feeling for hours afterwards!


COMPUDENT ANESTHESIA WAND:
Our doctors understand that one of our patients main concerns and sources of dental anxiety is getting a “shot” of anesthesia. To alleviate this added stress, our doctors have been using the CompuDent Wand system for local anesthesia for over 10 years. The ConpuDent System is a computer-controlled dental injection. The computer controls a slow and steady flow of anesthesia, which ultimately means a comfortable experience for our patients. Our team calls this system the “magic wand” because our patients with a fear of needles, lose their fear after 1 time! If you have had a prior bad experience with a needle injection of anesthesia, you will be reassured by this syringe-free dental experience.
