Comprehensive Pediatric Dental Services
At the Toothzone Network, we provide comprehensive dental care for patients of all ages, but with a primary focus on pediatric dentistry. You may think it’s unnecessary for your child to visit a dentist before their permanent teeth come in, but the truth is, the primary teeth are just as important and need proper care, too. Neglected cavities in baby teeth can cause problems with developing permanent teeth that may be hard to correct. Baby teeth also help to guide permanent teeth into place and for the correct development of the jaw bones and muscles. That’s why keeping them healthy is so important. We’ll ensure your child gets the care they need from the first tooth eruption through adolescence and beyond.

Offering Sedation Options to Ease Anxieties
We understand that many children have fears about visiting the dentist and maybe uncomfortable during certain treatments, preventing them from getting the best care possible. That’s why we offer a variety of pediatric sedation options to put your child at ease. We offer:
- Nitrous oxide: Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is administered through a breathing mask and allows your child to relax without putting them to sleep. It will calm your child and relieve their anxieties, so their treatment goes smoothly.
- Conscious sedation: We offer several conscious sedation options to help apprehensive children, very young kids, and those children with special needs. Though some of these options may cause your child to become drowsy and even fall asleep, they will not lose consciousness.
- I.V. sedation: For children who do not do well under conscious sedation, we offer I.V. sedation to allow for easier dental work. This will be administered and monitored by an anesthesiologist.
