Regular oral care is not only important in maintaining a healthy smile but also to your child’s overall health. At Rising Stars Pediatric Dentistry we understand that good oral hygiene is an ongoing commitment and we are dedicated to supporting your child in all of their dental needs with our leading pediatric dentistry team. We deliver prenatal and perinatal counseling, cleanings, exams, fluoride, silver diamine fluoride and sealants.
By providing you with trusted information about preventative care, our team aims to empower your child to take control of their oral health and establish their dental home. Routine cleanings are a large part of developing good oral hygiene as they provide our dental team with the opportunity to examine your oral health and address growth issues or emerging infection in the early stages. Our team will work with you to develop recommendations for a care plan based on your child’s unique needs. Call us today to schedule a cleaning and exam with our team!
Restorative dentistry is a specific branch of dentistry focused on restoring the health and function of your child’s smile following tooth damage, tooth decay, or tooth loss. At Rising Stars Dental, our caring staff offers a wide array of restorative dental treatments to meet the individual dental needs of each child including white fillings, root canal treatment for primary teeth, and crowns for primary teeth. This is in addition to the ability to provide space maintainers to ensure that adult teeth come properly in space in cases of early loss of baby teeth.
After a comprehensive examination, our highly skilled dental team will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your child’s unique oral health goals (as well as your budget and preferences). Let us help your child feel confident in the look and feel of their smile by scheduling a consultation with our team today!
For many young patients, going to the dentist can be daunting. For this reason, we work incredibly hard to develop trust with our patients and rely on advanced technology to ensure their restorative treatments are comfortable and natural looking. Sedation is a technique to guide a child’s behavior during dental treatment. Medications are used to help increase cooperation and to reduce anxiety or discomfort associated with dental procedures. Sedative medications cause most children to become relaxed and drowsy. Unlike general anesthesia, sedation is not intended to make a patient unconscious or unresponsive.
Another alternative to virtually painless procedures is Solea or Diode. These power dental lasers replace the dental drill in the majority of procedures in our practice. It causes virtually no pain, vibration or noise. In fact, nearly every patient skips anesthesia because they just don’t need it. Laser Dentistry is our way of keeping your child happy!
If the word "surgery" when it comes to your child causes anxiety in you, don't worry. At Rising Stars Dental, the goal is to reduce anxiety with a gentle touch, an empathetic demeanor and advanced training in sedation anesthesia. We are committed to giving our patients the most comfortable, professional and timely experience possible. Our dental surgery specialists provide everything from routine treatments like teeth extractions to more complicated soft tissue surgical procedures. There are few dentists more qualified to expertly handle your child’s surgical needs than those of Rising Stars Dental. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment!
If your child has a dysfunctional habit, such as thumb sucking or placing the tongue in between their front teeth- our team can evaluate and implement habit breakers.
This is in addition to the ability to provide a space maintainer to ensure your child’s primary teeth come properly into place. We understand children can encounter traumatic injuries. Not only is this painful, but it is also frightening to both the child and parent. Rest-assured our team can manage these injuries in a safe, efficient and compassionate manner.
