Pediatric Dental Services
Teaching little ones that dentistry is important can help them have a healthy smile for life. Our compassionate team not only enjoys offering children the preventive, restorative, and orthodontic services they require but also providing them with the tools and knowledge they need to maintain a healthy and functional smile themselves.

Preventive dental services help to keep the teeth and gums clean and healthy, which helps patients avoid restorative dental work in the future. Bringing kids in every six months for routine cleanings and fluoride treatments also helps them get used to visiting the dentist from a young age.
Should your child’s smile need a little extra TLC, our team offers gentle restorative services that can have them smiling big again in no time! Even if an issue is affecting a baby tooth, it’s important to take care of it as soon as possible to avoid more invasive and costly treatments down the road.

We love helping kids, teens, and adults achieve straight smiles through our orthodontic services! We offer metal and ceramic braces that are applied to the front of the teeth, as well as Invisalign, which uses removable clear aligners. Orthodontic consultations can be scheduled for patients as young as seven years old.

Dental anxiety can work to calm the nerves of children and their parents alike. At Tots to Teens Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we offer three safe and effective options for dental sedation that can help your child relax in the dental chair. We always work with parents to determine which of the following options will work best for their child and their specific treatment. Our sedation options include:
- Nitrous Oxide is a colorless gas that is administered through a comfortable mask that rests over the patients’ nose throughout treatment. Also referred to as laughing gas, this option is frequently used for dental anxiety and minor procedures. Nitrous oxide can make patients feel relaxed, giddy, and light-headed, and the effects quickly wear off within minutes of the mask being removed and the patient breathing normal oxygen.
- Oral Conscious Sedation requires patients to take prescribed oral medication before their procedure begins. Once the medication begins taking effect, the patient will begin to feel drowsy and fall into a dream-like state. They may fall asleep during the appointment, but they will not be rendered unconscious. We will take your child’s overall health and medical history into consideration before prescribing a medication.
- General Anesthesia can be used for patients who have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time, patients with special needs, and more advanced restorative procedures. General anesthesia is a controlled state of unconsciousness that blocks awareness and discomfort during treatment. Dental services that use this method of sedation are performed on an outpatient basis at a nearby hospital.
