At Victus Dental, we encourage patients to champion their own oral health and take charge of their destiny. However, this confidence has to start somewhere, and we are proud to be the first dentist your child visits. We suggest your little one comes and sees us as early as six years old. Excellent oral healthcare is a lifelong journey that starts early.
A common practice is the use of Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas, which is a mild sedative that relaxes patients and eases discomfort associated with some procedures.
As part of our dedication to progress and providing our patients with top-of-the-line dental care, we have adopted the Saleo Laser into our practice. With this technology, there is no need for numbing or anesthesia and they can receive fillings and other soft-tissue procedures without the anxiety that may normally accompany them.
Tooth extractions may sound a little daunting, but sometimes they are the best step for your child’s oral health. There are multiple reasons why your child may need a tooth extracted, such as excessive decay or overcrowding. If a tooth has decayed to a certain point, it may pose a risk to your child’s health and require removal.
Teeth may also need extraction if your child is experiencing overcrowding that is forcing their teeth out of place, which can lead to other complications down the road. Oftentimes, the removal of just one or two teeth can dramatically affect the spacing of your child’s teeth and give your child a smile they’re proud to wear.
Extractions are typically a quick procedure. Our knowledgeable team has refined the process to get your child in the chair as soon as possible so they can have their extraction done in an efficient and timely manner. The recovery process lasts a few days, and any discomfort can be eased by icing, over-the-counter pain medication, and rest.
You don’t have to fret over this simple procedure; you can rest assured that your child is in the hands of seasoned professionals who have made their oral health our top priority.
