General Dentistry

Generally, it is best to have your child have their first dental checkup around the age of 4-5. Some dentists recommend even earlier ages. Setting good oral cleaning habits is critical to healthy teeth for a lifetime.

Endodontics

The most common symptoms are discoloration of the tooth, sensitivity to heat or cold, and/or swelling or tenderness of the tissue around the tooth.

Periodontics

Most gum disease is easily seen with swollen and red gums that are often sensitive to the touch or when brushing. If your gums are overly sensitive or appear red and swollen, make an appointment immediately.

Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery

Some of the most common reasons you may need an oral surgeon are that you have difficult teeth extractions (such as your wisdom teeth), dental pain, misaligned jaw, or injuries due to an accident.

Orthodontics

There are financing options available such as CareCredit® that help spread your cost of care over the course of your treatment.

Every child is different but it is generally recommended that children be seen by the age of 7 for any possible orthodontic issues. If you bring your child in at a younger age to make sure their early teeth and mouth is healthy then most orthodontic issues will be discovered before they become bigger problems. Early detection is very important.

They are a series of aligners that are periodically replaced to gradually align teeth. They work in the same way as traditional braces but do not have the wires and other equipment that so many patients dislike.

Pedodontics

A specially trained dentist who can treat infants, children, teens and children with special needs.

The main reason for your child to see a pedodontist is for regular dental care. However, children can suffer injuries that affect their mouth in sports and other activities and this may require the special training of a pedodontist.
