Pediatric Orthodontics & Dental Services

Children’s teeth require extensive care and attention. That’s why our pediatric dentists at perform much more than routine checkups, fluoride treatments, and cleanings. Our dentistry experts have the skills, experience, technology, and specialized training to ensure that your child’s teeth are clean, straight, and prepared for the next set to come in.

Don’t wait to take your child to a pediatric dentist, because problems that develop now can become worse over time. This may include issues such as mouth crowding, gum disease, and TMJ problems (temporomandibular joint, which connects the jawbone to the skull), as well as risk assessment for prolonged problems like thumb sucking and teething.

A few of the specific pediatric dentistry services we offer are below:

Space Maintainers

Ordinarily, children’s baby teeth are pushed out by permanent teeth pushing through. However, when a baby tooth is lost or removed early due to tooth decay or trauma, it may take years before the permanent tooth is mature enough to enter the mouth. In that case, we may apply a dental space maintainer to preserve the opening. This spacer protects the adjacent teeth from drifting into the vacant space and allows a proper opening when the permanent tooth is ready.


Proper brushing technique is an essential part of oral health, so children should begin learning at an early age. Our trained dentists and dental services staff will help children learn how to brush correctly, reaching all surfaces and gums. A friendly pediatric dentist will walk each child and their parents through the process, demonstrating and helping them master each movement.


Flossing removes food residue from between teeth, where brushing doesn’t reach. Flossing is another integral part of proper dental care. Our pediatric dentists take the time to explain the importance of flossing to our young patients and demonstrate proper technique for optimal teeth cleaning and oral health. We also provide tips for parents so they can help their children practice flossing regularly.


While your front teeth form the basis for a great smile, it’s your back teeth (molars) that do most of the work chewing food. This makes them subject to excessive decay, which can affect both the teeth and the gums. Dental sealants safeguard molars against these problems, protecting your child’s oral health. Our pediatric dentistry experts make the sealant process easy and low-stress for each patient, understanding that children require specialized treatment.


Bonding is a dentistry procedure used to restore cracked, decayed, or chipped teeth. This simple, non-intrusive procedure involves attaching resin to your tooth enamel. Over time, it hardens to appear and act as part of the original tooth. Bonding is a less complicated alternative to crowns or veneers, which often makes it more suitable for children.


Braces are one of many tools used to create a beautiful smile for a lifetime by gently moving teeth over a period of time. They help fix and correct overbites, crowded teeth, and gapped teeth. Braces aren’t just a type of cosmetic dentistry, either — straight teeth not only look better, but are easier to clean and keep healthy. We offer several types of braces for children to choose from, depending on the orthodontic work necessary.
