Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedation during dental treatment. Sedation is most commonly used during extensive procedures, for patients with dental phobia or for patients who find it difficult to sit still. Our office offers nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and general anesthesia.
Preventive Oral Hygiene Instruction:
This includes proper brushing, flossing and eating habits, ideal fluoride levels and the use of pit and fissure sealants. We strive to provide a fun, educational environment whose children learn about the importance of good dental hygiene.
This includes children’s sealants, fillings, and crowns including treatment of devastating early childhood caries. We are committed to discussing all options before these procedures and answering all questions you may have. Always working for the goal of a healthy smile is our first priority.
Growth and Development & Braces:
As pediatric dental specialists, Dr. Krista is an expert on the growth and development of children’s dentition, jaws and craniofacial structures. Early growth and development evaluation may provide your child with a more positive experience should they require orthodontic treatment in the future.
Special needs patients:
If you're the parent or guardian of a child with disabilities, you'll appreciate the support, skill and compassion found with Dr. Krista and our office. We can help put your child on the path of good oral health with a preventative dental care plan customized to fit your child's needs.
While our goal is to prevent dental emergencies, we understand that the need for urgent dental care is sometimes necessary and can be a stressful experience for both parents and children. We strive to handle dental emergencies promptly and with compassion
