A Trustworthy Children’s Dentist for San Diego Parents
At Sedation Dental Center San Diego, we understand that you want the absolute best for your children — and we believe that should extend to their dental care as well. Our team can offer safe sedation services for children, and can complete pediatric dental treatment in just one session.
Our pediatric dentist services include X-rays, cleanings, white fillings, white crowns, extractions, root canal treatment, and space maintainers. We’re dedicated to maintaining good oral health early in life to help prevent any issues with their adult teeth.
Preventing Childhood Problems Leads to Healthy Adult Teeth
Children can get their baby teeth as early as 6 months of age, and dental decay can start in children as young as 1 year of age. At Sedation Dental Center San Diego, our children’s dentists stress the need for early detection. If your child has any tooth decay, we can treat this with small fillings that prevent further deterioration. If tooth decay goes untreated, it can worsen and lead to dental abscesses.
If a dental abscess occurs, the tooth will need to be extracted, which can lead to future problems. When a baby tooth is extracted too early, teeth erupting behind that tooth can drift into the wrong place. This can prevent adult teeth from erupting into their natural position. Orthodontic treatment may then be necessary to create space for adult teeth to grow into the right positions.
A Fuss-Free Experience for Patient and Parent
At our San Diego office, our pediatric dentists are here to make your child’s dentist appointments go as smoothly as possible. Our team has experience with special needs children, and we’re happy to help accommodate you and your child. We want to make your child’s dental care as comfortable as we can. If your child has a strong gag reflex, struggles to keep their mouth open, or experiences general dental anxiety, our team will discuss safe sedation and anesthesia options to keep your child relaxed.
