Checking & Freshening Smiles
Preventive & Corrective Pediatric Dentistry
Preventing problems before they start is the best way to protect your child’s beautiful smile. At Ridge Kids Dental, we begin every professional cleaning with an evaluation of their oral hygiene and identification of any conditions that may affect it negatively in order to prevent further damage or discomfort from developing.
When it comes to your child’s oral health, don’t take any chances. Trust our experienced pediatric dentists to place dental fillings in a quick, safe, and painless manner. Our tooth-colored fillings are virtually invisible, making them the perfect choice for children.
When a tooth is damaged or decayed beyond repair, extraction may be the best solution for your child. Our gentle pediatric tooth extractions are performed with care and precision to minimize discomfort and ensure a smooth recovery. We’ll work with you to find the best replacement option for your child’s smile, so they can feel confident and comfortable again.
In many situations, teeth are too damaged from cavities or fractures to be repaired with traditional fillings. Crowns are then required to restore the teeth to their normal function. We offer aesthetic or “white” crowns for all front teeth. In most causes for back teeth whether primary or young permanent, stainless steel crowns are best. However in limited cases we are equipped to treat back teeth with tooth colored crowns as well.
Pediatric sports mouthguards are essential for the prevention of oral and facial injuries in young athletes. Our custom-fit mouthguards provide superior protection against concussions and dental damage, making them a great choice for any child who participates in sports or other physical activities.
Your child deserves to feel comfortable and confident when you visit Ridge Kids Dental. For those who suffer from extreme anxiety, our office offers sedation dentistry as a safe and reliable way for your child to feel comfortable and relaxed. Nitrous oxide is a proven relaxing agent that is both fast-acting and quick-to-wear-off following treatment.
Your child will not lose consciousness, but they will feel very calm and stress-free during their treatment. If you or your child is anxious about their dental treatment, don’t let that stop you from getting the care you need. Ask us about sedation dentistry today.
In certain circumstances, treatment needs and/or patient anxiety are too great to effectively treat the patient with routine oral sedation. Dr. Puckett and Dr. Richardson are on-staff at the Outpatient Surgery Center of Jonesboro. This allows them to treat a select group of patients while under general anesthesia in order to ensure that treatment is completed in the most controlled and effective way.
