Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics

Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics

Treating the full spectrum of pediatric dental health care needs, from routine and preventive care to complex dental problems.

At Children’s Health℠ we know that dental health is important to your child’s overall health and appearance. Whether your child needs routine or special care, our experts will work with you to answer any questions and make sure your child is comfortable throughout examination and treatment. Our orthodontics program addresses the entire range of needs, from conventional orthodontics for the purpose of straightening teeth to specialized strategies for a variety of particular needs and situations. Our experts work with you and your child’s doctors to develop individualized treatment plans based on your child’s unique needs.

Comprehensive treatment for any dental condition

Our dentists treat cavities with fillings; diagnose and treat gum disease; provide pulp therapy to restore or maintain the teeth, gums, and dental tissues; and can place caps or crowns to improve or restore the appearance of the teeth. They’re also specially trained to handle more complex or emergency situations and, in such cases, to provide oral sedation when necessary or desired. And our dental specialists are also prepared to care for any special needs if your child has an illness or disability that affects dental health.

Specialized Orthodontics

In addition to providing more routine orthodontic care, our highly trained orthodontists collaborate as part of a multidisciplinary team of specialists to provide treatment for even the most complex cases, including:

  • Craniofacial orthodontics provides multidisciplinary consultations, diagnosis, treatment planning and procedures for a range of craniofacial anomalies and syndromes.
  • Surgical orthodontics to correct a misaligned jaw or for children who may have trouble chewing, breathing, or speaking as a result of an irregularity.
