Pediatric Dentistry

Kari Ryan Dentistry

Baby teeth aren’t there just for the tooth fairy to collect – oh, no! Even though your little one won’t keep those cute little chompers forever, they serve all kinds of vital purposes and need to be kept healthy, strong, cavity-free, and in place until it is time for those grown-up teeth to take their place. Not only are teeth vital in helping your child take in good nutrition and develop proper speech habits, they also act as place holders for permanent teeth. Without them, the remaining teeth can shift, leading to crowding or other orthodontic problems. We are here to help keep both your children’s and special needs family members’ teeth in tip-top shape with regular checkups and gentle cleanings starting at age two. It is very important to start bringing your little ones to the dentist as early as possible – this helps them get comfortable with the sights and sounds of the dental office and it helps you become informed and educated about home care. We offer a full range of pediatric care including:

  • Topical Fluoride treatments for protection, remineralization, and even early-tooth-decay reversal
  • Dental Sealants to smooth over deeper grooves and fissures making tooth surfaces easier to clean and provide years of protection
  • Pediatric root canal treatments to save little teeth and prevent future orthodontic issues
  • Cosmetic and restorative dental bonding to repair chips and cracks as well as fill cavities so little teeth stay beautifully strong and natural-looking
  • Sports guards and night guards to protect precious teeth from harm

Isn’t it nice to know you can bring your children to the office you know and trust for your own care? These dental moms think so!
