Has your child suffered from teeth which have been lost too soon due to tooth decay or a physical injury? Its no secret that kids have accidents during the active lives they so often love to lead, as well as tooth decay from the difficulty that often comes with instilling healthy habits on young children. However, teeth which have been lost before their time and as such do not have an adult tooth already moving in to take its place needs more than just healthy brushing and flossing. If not properly treated these teeth can cause serious problems later in life. Fortunately, your son or daughter can always find the advanced care their smiles need with space maintainers from their local pediatric dentist in Norwalk at the state of the art offices of the Children’s Dental Group.
Norwalk Kid’s Dentistry
Children’s teeth require a specialized level of care, and when this care becomes neglected or teeth are otherwise damaged due to accidents during sports conduct or other levels of activity, smiles need extra care in order to insure a healthy smile. The health and position of your son or daughter’s first teeth is more than just a temporary phase in their young lives, but in fact directly correlates to placement and longevity of the teeth they will grow into later in life. When a child’s tooth is lost early, this can cause the remaining teeth to shift and gradually move inside their jaws before the adult tooth can fully erupt into its place. When this happens, adult teeth are grown in either malformed, into an incorrect position, or often both at the same time. The only way to stop this from happening is through space maintainers from your professional pediatric dentist in Norwalk.
A space maintainer is a type of non-invasive orthodontic device that is hand crafted for the unique needs of your child’s smile and is worn to stop crowded teeth from happening to your son or daughter. This removal appliance when worn properly works to insure that their adult or permanent grow into the proper placement without any interference from the adjacent teeth in their smile. Often times a removable appliance such as a space maintainer will be worn in addition to other orthodontic treatments in order to insure a straight and healthy smile.

Does your child live in fear of the dental care they need to grow into healthy and beautiful smiles? Often times your children can develop an illogical fear of even the most gentle oral health care, and once anxiety sets in there is little one can do to remove it aside from work with your son or daughter as calmly and peacefully as possible in order to make their visits to your local Cerritoss children’s dentist one they can even look forward to. Our fully licensed and professionally trained team of pedodontists strives to do exactly that in every way possible.

Children’s Sedation Dentistry 90650
Sedation is not as uncommon in children’s dentistry as parents may think. Our doctors at your trusted Cerritoss children’s dentist utilize sedation for children who have disorders that make it difficult for them to sit still for the time it takes for a dentist to perform a precise treatment. Not all levels of sedation create a state of complete unconsciousness either. In fact, the most commonly used forms of sedation work to simply lower levels of anxiety so children can feel relaxed and at ease. Nitrous oxide or laughing gas is the mildest form of sedation, as well as the easiest to control and the fastest to wear off. This form can be delivered simply and painlessly through a small mask that provides and instant effect. For children who have trouble controlling muscle movements, or simply experience high levels of anxiety, oral sedatives can be used in the form of tablets, pills, and even liquids. Often times your doctor will require the oral sedative to be taken before the appointment so your child is ready for their procedure when they arrive, as certain oral sedatives can take a prolonged period of time to take effect. Children using an oral sedative should limit food and fluids prior to their procedure, wear comfortable clothing, and have a parent or guardian to watch over them from several hours after their appointment.
