Here are some of our top kid's dentistry services:
Your Child's First Dental Visit
During your child's first dental visit, Dr. Teiman and her kid-friendly staff will do everything in their power to make even our youngest patients feel at home. For children 5 years and older, our team will take comfortable x-rays, images, and other photos to get a clear idea of their current health. And because healthy habits should start young, we emphasize oral health education by providing easy-to-understand explanations. Our goal is to help kids keep their teeth and gums healthy in between appointments, so that there’s no need for extra work later on.
Checkups and Preventive Care
Dr. Teiman follows oral health guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) advising children to be seen for checkups every 6 months. And since we provide customized care to every patient’s unique needs, if our team discovers multiple cavities or early orthodontic concerns, we may suggest more frequent appointments.
At Desert Sage Family Dental, our philosophy of care is anchored in prevention, but, sometimes small cavities still occur. To treat them, we use safe, effective tooth-colored dental fillings that are always mercury-free.
Dental Crowns For Children
If your child has suffered an oral injury, or if our team discovers decay, we may recommend a dental crown to help save the tooth. We offer dental crowns that are made right here in our office.
Tooth Extractions For Kids
We may recommend a gentle tooth extraction for children who are suffering from decay or experiencing crowding. Tooth extractions help ensure total body health for your child as they grow. And if you have a teen who is experiencing pain in the back of their mouth, Desert Sage Family Dental offers preventive wisdom tooth extractions, and we even remove fully impacted wisdom teeth!
Sedation Dentistry For Children
If your child is anxious, has special healthcare needs, or just needs extra help staying calm and comfortable, we may recommend our sedation dentistry. We offer laughing gas as a safe yet powerful comfort dentistry solution designed to offer children the calmest experience possible.
Laughing gas, or inhalation sedation, is a light form of sedation dentistry that is typically the best option for young patients who experience mild anxiety in the dental chair. This colorless, odor-free gas is administered through a comfortable breathing mask by Dr. Teiman, who will carefully control the amount of gas administered. You can rest assured our team will do their best to keep your child feeling relaxed throughout their visit.
