Pediatric Dentistry

At Galleria Dental Arts, we understand the importance of providing specialized dental care for children to ensure that they develop and maintain healthy smiles for a lifetime. Pediatric dentistry focuses on the oral health of children from birth to the completion of their permanent teeth. Our team is trained to provide comprehensive pediatric dental services to patients from infancy through adolescence.

Why Choose Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry includes all aspects of oral health for children who are still developing. It involves many of the same types of procedures used with adults, but each treatment and procedure is specifically designed to address the unique needs of developing children. We understand that children may have different medical histories and special concerns, which is why our pediatric dental services are tailored accordingly.

Common Pediatric Dental Treatments

At Galleria Dental Arts, we offer a range of pediatric dental treatments to ensure the optimal oral health of your child. Some of the most common treatments include:

  1. Regular Exams and Cleanings: Regular dental exams and cleanings play a vital role in maintaining your child’s oral health. During these appointments, our team will carefully examine their teeth and gums for any signs of early problems, cavities, or gum disease. We also provide a thorough professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup.
  2. Fluoride Treatment: Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. Our dental hygienists apply fluoride to your child’s teeth during their routine cleaning to reduce the risk of tooth decay and plaque accumulation.
  3. Dental Sealants: Dental sealants are a fast and painless treatment that creates a protective barrier against cavity-causing bacteria. Sealants are typically applied to the chewing surfaces of your child’s back molars, which are more prone to decay due to their grooves and difficulty to clean.
  4. Mouthguards: If your child participates in sports activities, it is essential to protect their teeth with custom-fit mouthguards. Mouthguards not only safeguard their teeth but also help prevent injuries to the lips, jaw, face, gums, and surrounding tissues.
  5. Orthodontic Evaluation: Monitoring your child’s dental development and conducting early orthodontic evaluations can help identify and address any orthodontic issues at the appropriate time, potentially reducing the need for extensive orthodontic treatment in the future.
  6. Education and Guidance: Our pediatric dental team educates both children and parents on proper oral hygiene practices and diet choices that contribute to healthy teeth and gums. We believe that instilling good oral habits at a young age is crucial for long-term dental health.
