Pediatric Dental Services

Preventive Oral Hygiene Instruction:

This includes proper brushing, flossing and eating habits, ideal fluoride levels and the use of pit and fissure sealants. Our doctors and  team strive to provide a fun, educational environment whose children learn about the importance of good dental hygiene.

 

Restorative Dentistry:

This includes children’s fillings, crowns and prosthesis, including treatment of the often devastating nursing bottle decay.  We are  committed to discussing all options before these procedures and answering all questions you may have.  Always working for the

goal of a healthy smile is our

first priority.

 

Emergency Treatment:

While our goal is to prevent dental emergencies, we understand that the need for urgent dental care is sometimes necessary and can be a stressful experience for both parents and children. We strive to handle dental emergencies promptly and with compassion.

 

Sedation:

Many children are unable to cooperate with dental treatment. This may because of their young age, amount of treatment needed, or other factors including a previous traumatic dental experience. When the required treatment is not able to be performed your child’s Pediatric Dentist may recommend conscious sedation as a way to help your child receive the necessary treatment with a minimal amount of discomfort. The Pediatric Dentist may administer nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) sedation or an oral “cocktail” of medications, or both. Our dentists are licensed by the state to provide sedation and have received advanced training in the use of sedatives and the monitoring of sedated patients. All clinical staff are also trained in emergency management.

 

Conscious sedation may not be necessary or appropriate for every patient. You will be able to discuss this and other options with your child’s Pediatric Dentist.

 

General Anesthesia:

Sometimes a child may not be able to be treated while awake or under conscious sedation, whether due to their young age, combativeness, or extensive amount of treatment. For these patients we provide the option of general anesthesia. While many parents are nervous about the prospect of having their child asleep for the dental work, you can be assured that modern techniques allow for an extremely safe anesthetic. General anesthesia is a safe and effective option and is administered at Phoenix Pediatric Dental only by competent, board certified dentist anesthesiologists. Modern monitoring devices and anesthesia delivery systems are utilized and each anesthetic is custom designed for your child. Parents will generally be allowed to accompany their child to the surgical suite while his or her anesthetic is induced. The child is usually allowed to breathe anesthetic gases through a mask in order to fall asleep, though sometimes the anesthesiologist may recommend another form of induction. The child will be under the direct supervision of the anesthesiologist throughout their entire anesthetic. The anesthesiologist has only your child’s safety and comfort in mind. A complete compliment of emergency management medications and supplies are readily available to the surgical team throughout the course of the anesthetic and recovery, as is the knowledge necessary to utilize them if required.

 

Your child’s anesthesiologist will be glad to take the time to answer any questions you may have.

 

Special Needs Dentistry:

Many of our most special children have special needs. The dentists at Phoenix Pediatric Dental are ready to address these special needs. Children who suffer from physical, mental, or emotional handicaps may have difficulty receiving proper professional dental care at their family dentist. Our Pediatric Dentists are specially trained in their residencies to provide the special care necessary for these special patients. We also have a hospital residency trained general dentist available to care for the older children with special needs. If necessary, children with special needs may receive their dental treatment under anesthesia by one of our pediatric dentists at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

 

 

Hospital Dentistry:

Our Pediatric Dentists may recommend hospital dentistry for children who need extensive work done and/or those patients with special needs. Our Doctors have privileges at Phoenix Children's Hospital and can provide care there when appropriate.

 

HOSPITAL DENTISTRY IS FOR PATIENTS WITH:

* Multiple oral health issues that require treatment

* High dental anxiety or fear
