Pediatric Dentistry Q&A
Pediatric dentistry includes a wide array of dental services for children and teenagers of all ages, as this population group has unique oral health care needs. Pediatric dentists receive child-specific training to ensure optimal outcomes in a warm, nurturing environment.
Benefits associated with seeing a pediatric dentist include:
- Fewer cavities
- Lower risk of gum disease
- Aesthetically pleasing teeth and smiles
- Improved oral health
- More self-confidence
Nuve Dental’s environment is comfortable and welcoming, making children of all ages feel right at home and even look forward to their dental appointments.
Some of the many pediatric dentistry options available at Nuve Dental include:
Professional teeth cleanings
Your Nuve Dental hygienist gently cleans your child’s teeth using special dental tools. They remove tartar and plaque in hard-to-reach areas, and brush and floss their teeth.
Dental X-rays make it possible for your child’s dentist to detect potentially serious oral health problems that aren’t obvious with a dental examination.
During a dental exam, your provider carefully evaluates your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth to let you know if they see anything concerning. Examples include tooth damage, tooth decay, and gum disease.
Preventive dental procedures
Nuve Dental offers preventive dental services that reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Examples include fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
Restorative dental services available at Nuve Dental include white fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, and more.
Nuve Dental offers traditional braces and clear aligners to straighten crooked or misaligned teeth in children and teenagers.
Warm, friendly staff members greet your child when they arrive for pediatric dentistry appointments at Nuve Dental. They relax in a dental chair while providers review your child’s oral health history, examine their teeth and gums, and take dental X-rays as needed.
If your child requires (or desires) preventive or restorative dental procedures, Nuve Dental’s specialists can review their treatment options with you. They personalize a solution that best meets your child’s needs and preferences.
