Sedation Dentistry Can Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution for Improved Health

sedation-dentistry201512As a pediatric dentist office, we offer sedation dentistry so our young patients can receive the dental care they need. We have found that most parents have wonderful intentions toward their children and their health. They want them to have a beautiful smile of healthy teeth, just like they want their children to be physically healthy. The challenge is that many young children do not like to visit a medical office because it makes them nervous or they have a hard time sitting still during the appointment. This can cause parents to become discouraged and understandably so.

Visit Our Best Kid’s Dentist Office and Learn How to Keep Their Teeth Healthy

best-kids-dentist201510As one of the best kid’s dentist, the largest single challenge that we face does not come in the form of rare disease or children’s special developmental needs. The largest problem that most kid’s dentists face is the idea, which too many parents have, that children do not need to visit the dentist on a regular basis. The same parents that are often incredibly diligent about visiting the doctor, getting shots, and going in for regular checkups tend to forget that much of your health begins in the mouth. In a recent study, children of or under the age of one were studied; the study found that parents had taken their children to the pediatrician, at least once, in 89% of the children studied. When you look at oral health, only 1.5% of these kids had been into the best kid’s dentist. This is an alarming statistic as there are a growing number of cases of children with childhood decay, also known as pediatric dental disease. We have found that in children between the ages of two and five, decay can be found at a rate of 25%. When you increase the age of the children to between twelve and fifteen, the percentage of cases jumps to 50%. Half the children in middle school suffer from pediatric dental disease: something that is completely preventable with the right kind of care and allowing us to see your children’s teeth at a young age.

Antibiotics and Your Child’s Emergency Dentist

emergency-dentist20159-300x226When you think of an emergency dentist, it is very rare that this conjures up any pleasant images. Most people know that if you have to see any medical professional for an urgent treatment, you are probably not a very happy camper. When it comes to seeing an emergency dentist, there are several reasons that parents bring their children to see us, including having damaged their teeth in a traumatic accident or because of decay. In either case, there is a risk of infection, which can lead to extreme amounts of discomfort. When they come in to see us, our primary goal is to make sure we deal with the discomfort and take care of any infections that may have set in or may be oncoming. The pain usually can be dealt with using standard pain medication, allowing us to turn our attention to the infection pretty quickly.
