    Pediatric and Family Dental Services We Offer

    Protective Sealants

    Young children often lack the dexterity they need to thoroughly clean their teeth each day. Additionally, the deep grooves and pits on the chewing surfaces of back teeth are more prone to tooth decay. Placing a protective coating called a “sealant” in those areas helps reduce the likelihood of cavities while also providing a smoother surface to brush and clean. Sealants are non-invasive and only take a few minutes to apply. Our Chandler dentists recommend sealing the first and second permanent molars, which typically erupt around the ages of 6 and 12.

    Orthodontic Screenings and Braces

    Early orthodontic screenings allow us to intercept issues while your child’s mouth is still growing. Intervening earlier helps promote healthier oral development while reducing the extent of orthodontic treatment needs in the future. If your child does need braces, we offer in-house orthodontic services for all ages! Addressing bite alignment needs at a younger age helps to encourage proper tooth placement and alignment as your child grows. Chandler orthodontists and dental experts suggest that parents plan to reserve an orthodontic evaluation for their child by the time they’re 7 years old.

    Diagnostic X-rays

    Low-dose digital X-rays provide an insight into your child’s oral development, allowing for earlier diagnosis of atypical health conditions. From tooth decay to impacted teeth and abscessed to orthodontic concerns, we utilize digital X-rays to treat problems earlier, before secondary issues arise. X-rays are an essential part of dental exams, as they make it possible to visualize areas that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

    Cleanings and Exams

    Preventative visits are typically covered at 100% by your dental insurance policy. By scheduling routine checkups, we can equip your family with the resources necessary to help your child enjoy healthy teeth for a lifetime. During your child’s appointment, we’ll screen for early warning signs of decay, oral hygiene concerns, orthodontic needs, and more. We’ll also provide a professional cleaning with tailored oral hygiene and nutritional guidance depending on your child’s circumstances. Frequent checkups can lower your child’s risk of preventable dental disease and reverse early infections before they have a chance to become more severe. Plan to book these visits twice per year.

    Dental Fillings

    Cavities are bacterial infections that gradually expand until they’re treated by a dentist. By placing a small, minimally invasive white filling, we can limit the risk of an abscessed tooth or decay spreading into adjacent teeth. Treating a cavity in baby teeth also preserves the tooth for a longer amount of time, preventing complications caused by premature tooth loss. Most of our fillings are made from white composite, which blends in with the surrounding tooth enamel. As your child grows, we also provide wisdom tooth treatments, Invisalign, and other age-appropriate oral health services.
