Dental phobias in kids often continue into adulthood. It is essential that children have positive experiences and find their “dental home” as early as possible. Our offices are designed for kids in mind with bright colors, video games, toys, TV’s and equipped with the latest advancements in dental technology. We want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment your family arrives at our office.
Pediatric check-ups should begin at age one. This begins with establishing healthy habits at an early age. Regular checkups and cleaning can assist to keep teeth and gums clean. By taking your child for regular dental check-ups at a very young age, you will ensure their teeth will develop properly and correct any potential oral health issues before they become serious.
At age one, children should begin a schedule of regular cleanings. Regular cleanings help to remove tartar buildup, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. Teeth cleanings are also important for children to ensure that their teeth are in an overall healthy condition which will allow Dr. Anil Shah to detect any potential gum problems.
Dental X-rays are an important diagnostic tool used to identify several issues of the mouth for children, including tooth decay, tumors, cysts and extra teeth. New technologies allow for digital X-rays that can reduce the radiation exposure by more than 50 percent.
Sedation is commonly used for young children who have a high-level of dental phobia and for some children with special needs. For these children, several procedures such as fillings, crowns, root canals and extractions often require sedation. Dr. Anil Shah will explain sedation procedures to overcome the anxiety and offer the best options.
