Pediatric Dental Office in Salt Lake City
When taking your child to the dentist for the first time, it’s important that his/her dental experience is a positive one. We want children to have a positive perception of the dentist. We know that going to the dentist can be a little scary for young children; however when they walk through our doors we want them to feel like going to the dentist is a positive experience as much as possible. If you are searching for a skilled and friendly pediatric dentist in Salt Lake City, visit Southridge Pediatric Dentistry.
We offer several pediatric dentistry services to make sure your young one has a healthy, white smile. Some of these services are:
- Teeth Cleaning for Kids – Routine cleanings are common and help prevent cavities and gum disease.
- Orthodontic Space Maintainers – We can install a placeholder where a child has lost a tooth to keep the space open for a permanent tooth to grow in.
- Sedation – We offer sedation dentistry to help keep young children calm and pain free while we perform the work on their teeth.
Call us today to schedule an appointment.
What We Do
Our services include oral evaluations, dental X-rays, and routine cleanings to monitor the tooth development and oral health of your child and to detect any signs of cavities and other dental issues. We also provide orthodontic space maintainers for patients who lost their baby teeth sooner than expected. These dental appliances will help ensure that the child’s permanent teeth will still come in healthily and in place. We provide fluoride and sealants, as well, to protect your child’s teeth from the harmful acid that causes tooth decay. Furthermore, our dentists, together with our staff, educate and guide the parents on how to encourage their children to observe good dental hygiene at home.
If your child already has dental caries, you can count on our restorative care to help your kid get past this problem. Our dentists remove tooth decay and then provide white fillings to restore the natural look, feel, and function of your child’s affected tooth. Our restorative services help prevent tooth decay and other problems in the future, too.
How We Care
Our practice is dedicated to promoting the importance of good oral health for kids. Over the years, we have helped many children in Salt Lake City get healthier teeth, as well as develop proper oral care habits through our dental services. Also, our welcoming staff keeps a fun, kid-friendly environment to help children feel at ease all throughout their visit. After all, we want to make dental visits something kids look forward to—rather than fear. This way, it is easier to encourage them to take care of their oral health.
In addition, we go the extra mile for patients with special needs. Our dentists offer sedation for kids who find it difficult to feel comfortable during the procedure. Our practice also delivers hospital dentistry for children that are either too young to get a procedure in the office or have other illnesses that require special medical care during a dental treatment.
