Children’s Dentistry

childrens_page
Children’s dentistry expands far beyond diagnosing a dental problem and treating a tooth. The dental experience of a young child can determine their outlook on dentistry and taking care of their teeth for their lifetime. Our goal is to gain a young child’s trust and confidence which often takes a series of several small dental visits – an exam, a cleaning, an x-ray or happy visit.

By having a parent present during the dental visit, the parent learns our child-friendly terminology and is able to reinforce positive experiences at home.If a child requires dental treatment, many do very well being treated in the office with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and a local anesthetic for numbness. Children with medical concerns, high anxiety or extensive dental needs may be directed to a pediatric dentist who specializes in the care of children. Dr. Law will discuss treatment options after performing a thorough examination, determining dental needs and understanding the child’s temperament.
