Children’s Dentist-Dental Services
Pediatric Dental Services Palm Beach Gardens
Your Child’s First Visit.
Infant Exam: Parents are encouraged to participate in this basic dental infant exam that is designed to counsel parents on feeding habits and dental hygiene for their baby or toddler.
Preventive Care: We recommend routine cleanings every 6 months, periodic x-rays, fluoride treatment, and applying sealants to prevent tooth decay. Visit here for more information.
Fluoride: Our doctors and staff have taken the time to research the levels of fluoride within Palm Beach County. Amounts of fluoride vary from one area to another. We can determine if supplemental fluoride may or may not be recommended.
Sealants: One of the most important preventive treatments is the application of Sealants. A sealant is a protective coating applied to the chewing surface of the primary and permanent molars. Deep grooves are hard to reach with a toothbrush, therefore allowing bacteria to form and cause decay. Sealants act as a barrier, protecting the decay-prone surfaces of the teeth. Visit here for more information.
X-rays: Because we are committed to your child’s overall health and comfort, we use digital radiographs to limit exposure of radiation by more than 90%.
Restorative Procedures: These include filling cavities, nerve treatments, extractions, and placing crowns and space maintainers.
Sedation: We use different levels of sedation depending on the child’s needs.
Nitrous Oxide, also called “laughing gas,” is a very mild sedation that lessens anxiety.
I.V. Sedation, or deep sedation, which is administered by a board certified M.D. pediatric anesthesiologist along with a registered pediatric nurse. For more info go to PediatricSedation.com.
Hospital Dentistry: For the medically compromised child or those with special needs, our pediatric dentists are on staff at St. Mary’s Hospital in West Palm Beach and can perform treatments on patients under general anesthesia.
