Meet Our Pediatric Dentist at Tioga Dental & Orthodontics

What Is Pediatric Dentistry?

Like general dentists, our team offers a full array of dental care and treatment options designed to resolve issues with cavities, gum disease and other common dental problems. Children’s dentists focus on young patients, from the time they are born until they reach adolescence. The kid’s dentists at Tioga Dental & Orthodontics have undergone the additional training needed to qualify as pediatric dental specialists. Whether you need a toddler dentist or a pediatric oral surgeon, our team can provide the right options for the youngest members of your family.

Why Should Children Visit a Pediatric Dentist?

Getting the right start on dental treatment can lead to a lifelong commitment to healthier teeth and gums. At Tioga Dental & Orthodontics, we offer dental cleaning for kids that can help to prevent issues with gum disease. Our team also offers pediatric periodontics that can enhance the health and stability of teeth, and the brightest smiles possible. Your child will benefit from regular dental treatment at our office.

When Should I Take My Child to the Dentist?

We recommend bringing your child to Tioga Dental & Orthodontics as soon as their first tooth erupts. This will give our team plenty of time to identify any developing issues and resolve them to ensure the healthiest smile possible. We will work with you and your child to make your visits to our office as pleasant and stress-free as possible. By making regular dental care a part of your routine from the earliest days of childhood, you can instill in your children the importance of proper oral hygiene for a happier and healthier future.

What to Expect at Your Child’s First Dentist Visit

During your first visit to our office, our team will perform a complete examination of your child’s teeth to determine if they are healthy and growing properly. We will also clean your child’s teeth carefully and gently. Throughout this process, our experienced dental team will work to help your child feel more comfortable and to reduce any anxiety he or she may feel during the examination and cleaning. We will also take X-rays of your child’s teeth to create an initial record of the development of the bones of the jaw. If you are concerned about the cost of pediatric dental visit and treatment, we offer payment plans and other financial options designed specifically with your needs in mind.

How Can I Find a Dentist for My Special Needs Child?

Our children’s pediatric dentistry team will discuss the treatment options and the accommodations needed to help your special needs child feel comfortable in our office. We can provide you with sedation options and advanced behavior management strategies that can make it much easier for your child to receive the treatment needed to have the best dental care available. Our pediatric specialists provide some of the best support available in the dental industry for children with special needs and requirements.
