Quality Dental Services for Children
Dr. Youngblood and our team are pleased to provide the wide variety of treatments and services that kids need to enjoy full smile health all the way through childhood. Kids’ dentistry is more than just dental hygiene and orthodontics -- and so our comprehensive services reach far beyond these basic services. We’re prepared to handle whatever your little one’s smile may need!
Our children’s services include:
- Preventive dentistry: Six month checkups and hygiene, mouthguards for little athletes, dental sealants, digital x-rays, and topical fluoride treatments.
- Restorative dentistry: Tooth-colored fillings, extractions, stainless steel crowns, space maintainers, and treatment for traumatic injury.
- Emergency dentistry: Treatment for knocked out teeth, sports injuries, facial trauma, infection, and other situations requiring urgent care.
- Sedation dentistry: Oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and general anesthesia.
Prevention Is Key for Healthy Smiles
Routine preventive care is the foundation of a happy, healthy smile. Your child should be visiting the dentist every six months, just the same as you. These visits are important because our hygiene team gets the chance to remove plaque and tartar from the surface of teeth. We can also provide important tips on proper brushing and flossing at home.
Digital x-rays taken annually give Dr. Youngblood the chance to look beneath the surface of the teeth to detect potential issues like cavities or extra/missing teeth. Regular preventive attention allows us to treat any existing problems as conservatively as possible.
A Place Your Whole Family Will Love
Choosing a dentist your child looks forward to visiting can take a lot of stress off for you. The whole team at the Children’s Dental Center places a special importance on maintaining our happy, warm, and, yes, FUN office that all of our patients can appreciate. Forget about pre-dentist tears or dread -- our little patients love visiting us! Positive experiences from childhood helps to make sure people aren’t afraid of visiting the dentist for routine preventive care. And that’s the number one secret to a smile that lasts a lifetime.
If your child is still very nervous or afraid of visiting the dentist, though, we are happy to offer sedation dentistry to help. With options ranging from nitrous oxide to general anesthesia, this service is completely safe and highly effective for young people.
