Pediatric dentistry focuses specifically on children's dental care needs. Children will find pediatric dentists to be more comfortable as they are more understanding of their needs. At Atlantic Dental in Denver, we offer pediatric dental services to enable the children to undergo their dental treatments in a warm and welcoming environment with a compassionate and sympathetic staff.
Importance of Pediatric Dental Care
Pediatric dental care can help your child feel more comfortable when visiting an office. We provide procedures specific to kids, like teeth cleanings, dental sealants, and fluoride treatments, as well as orthodontics. Our dentist works with your child to make their experience with us calm and relaxing. We help monitor your child's dental development throughout their growth and ensure a disease free oral cavity.
Benefits of Pediatric Dental Care
Your child may have had problems in the past while visiting a dental office, but as pediatric dental providers, we take an entirely different approach towards their oral care. They will be warmly welcomed into the office in a child-friendly manner. We use child-safe terminology to make the appointment less scary or confusing for them. We help educate them on the correct ways to take care of their teeth efficiently so that they grow up to have a beautiful, healthy smile.
What to Expect In Pediatric Dentistry Appointments?
- Dental Exams & Cleanings
A teeth cleaning is performed to remove the harmful accumulations from your child's teeth and gums. Then we will comprehensively examine their oral cavity to look for signs of decay and cavities. The gums will be evaluated to see any signs of infections. If any problems are identified, we may recommend the appropriate dental care.
- Dental Sealants
Dental sealants are transparent plastic restorations applied to the surfaces of the teeth, including the premolars and molars. They offer a simple and straightforward method of safeguarding your child's teeth and act as a shield to protect cavity-prone areas. They are generally painted to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and are also used to conceal deep grooves and pits. Sealants are considered to be practically safe for children.
- Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride applications are an effective solution to avoid tooth decay and cavities. They help prevent plaque build-up and keep the surfaces of the teeth clean. This treatment takes only a few minutes to complete and must be repeated once every six months.
