Family Dentist in Powell, OH Providing Premier Pediatric Dentistry Services
When you visit your family dentist in Powell, OH you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed about your child benefiting from our pediatric dentistry services. Our team is caring and friendly and we work hard to create a welcoming and compassionate atmosphere. With years of experience in pediatric dentistry and working with kids, we’ve developed a wide array of pediatric services. The pediatric services we provide are:
BPA Free Tooth-Colored Fillings
You may have heard some worrying things about BPA, or Bis-Phenol A, a compound in tooth-colored dental fillings, but don’t go rushing back to silver amalgam just yet. We can leave tooth-colored fillings with BPA and the dangers of mercury poisoning that come with amalgam fillings behind, because there are numerous tooth-colored materials available that are free of BPA.
Nitrous Oxide for Children
Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas commonly referred to as laughing gas. It consists of two nitrogen atoms and one oxygen atom bonded together. Studies indicate that it reduces a patient’s perception of pain and increases the release of dopamine. Laughing gas is one option to help anxious patients relax and feel comfortable during a dental procedure, or even during a routine pediatric dental appointment.
Pit and Fissure Sealant
Typically, sealants are applied to the molars because these teeth are the ones that do the most chewing and have those deep crevices where bacteria can hide. The sealant will fill in and cover any crevices on the tooth to act as a shield from the bacteria. What makes them even better is that the sealant application process is quick and painless!
If a child loses a baby tooth earlier than expected or their adult tooth is late in erupting, they may benefit from space maintainers to hold the place for the incoming tooth or teeth. Space maintainers are orthodontic appliances that help ensure that adult teeth come in where they should. They can be fixed or removable and they are custom-made for each child.
