Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are clear shields that our team places atop the biting surface of teeth to create a smoother, easy-to-clean surface. By blocking off the crevices in the molars, children are able to remove plaque and food debris build-up more easily, preventing cavities from forming. Not only are they unnoticeable, but they also continue protecting their pearly whites for several years, making them an excellent long-term investment!

Lip & Tongue Tie Treatment

More parents are becoming aware of the signs of lip and tongue ties to look out for in their infants and children, like difficulty latching while nursing, slow weight gain, and colic. If you notice any of these, or it hurts to breast feed, it could be due to a common and easily-fixed issue, known as a lip or tongue tie. This is when the frenum, which is a strip of soft tissue that connects the lips to the gums or the tongue to the floor of the mouth, is overgrown, limiting your child’s oral movement. Dr. Lee can release the tie using a precise dental laser instead of surgical scissors, minimizing post-operative bleeding, risk of infection, and discomfort.

Non-Nutritive Oral Habits

While thumb and pacifier sucking are natural and healthy habits for children to have, at a certain age, it’s important to help them curb these non-nutritive oral habits to prevent orthodontic issues from developing. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that parents act to curb pacifier and thumb-sucking around the age of one, helping children cut off the habit by three years old. Dr. Lee can help guide you and your little one through this process, ensuring that long-term dental concerns, like misalignment and airway disorders, don’t form.

Pulp Treatment

Just like with adults, children’s teeth can become infected due to untreated cavities allowing harmful oral bacteria access to the inner chamber of teeth, where the pulp is located. Once the pulp, which is a collection of soft tissue and nerves, becomes attacked by bacteria, it often leads to a severe toothache. Dr. Lee can address the infection and your child’s pain by removing the damaged pulp and rebuilding the tooth, allowing it to naturally fall out on its own when the time is right.

Sedation Dentistry for Kids

Does your child experience anxiety or fear at the thought of visiting the dentist? Our team will do everything we can to help them feel right at home in our office. However, if that isn’t enough, we can also offer them calming dental sedation. This will prevent them from having scary experiences that further their dental phobia as well as allow them to sit still in the treatment chair, making sure their visit flies by as quickly as possible.
