Conscious Sedation

Your child can benefit from sedation dentistry if they experience one or more of the following:

  • High fear of dental care
  • Complex dental problems
  • Traumatic dental experiences
  • Fear of needles and shots
  • Trouble getting numb
  • Sensitive teeth

Nitrous oxide/oxygen inhalation sedation (laughing gas) is a blend of nitrous oxide and oxygen. It is often used in the dental setting to help reduce anxiety. Your child will notice a sweet, pleasant aroma, experience a sense of well-being, and feel relaxed.

Complications with nitrous oxide/oxygen are extremely rare. Its sedative effects are completely gone five minutes after it is stopped. It is eliminated through the normal breathing process. Please advise the doctor or assistant if your child has just eaten a large meal or is prone to motion sickness.


Tooth-Whitening

General discoloration of a tooth can be treated by bleaching, bonding of tooth colored composite material to the tooth, cementing tooth colored porcelain veneers or by placing porcelain crowns.

Bleaching can be effective in some but not all cases. It has several advantages:

  • It is relatively inexpensive
  • It removes none of the existing tooth and is painless
  • In some cases a home treatment regimen can be prescribed

Before and After with Whitened Teeth for Pediatric Dentistry in Carson and Wilmington

Porcelain crowns produce great and durable results but are not often recommended for pediatric patients. There are two reasons. First they are more costly than other treatments. Second, by their very nature, they require removal of significant amounts of the original tooth material. That can be a problem because often-large pulp chambers on young teeth do not allow sufficient tooth removal for proper crown thickness of porcelain.

Kids at the Children's Dentist in Carson and GardenaSealants

A sealant is a thin covering of dental material placed over those tiny imperfections in teeth that trap food and plaque known as pits, grooves and fissures. Sealants can be clear or appropriately tinted to assist identification after being applied to the pits and grooves. They are usually applied to the back teeth, which are more prone to decay.

Sealants are recommended for all children with deep grooves in back teeth. They are particularly appropriate for the first permanent (6 year) molars since these teeth are notorious for deep pit and groove development and erupt during more cavity prone ages.

Sealants are normally effective for several years. They cannot be properly examined with just the naked eye. Your dentist will monitor the state of the sealants over the years and let you know if and when they should be redone. Longevity of sealants greatly depends upon eating habits. Chewing ice, hard popcorn kernels and "sticky" candies often results in less retention time of sealants.


Sports Mouthgaurds

Athletic Mouth Guards from Your Children's Dentist in Carson and WilmingtonAthletic mouthguards provide protection for your teeth when playing sports. The most effective mouthguard should be resilient, tear-resistant and comfortable. It should fit properly, be durable and easy to clean, and not restrict your speech or breathing. Generally, a mouthguard covers only the upper teeth. Our office will take the time with each patient to ensure proper mouthguard thickness and adequate protection in critical areas, based on the sporting activity.

Like any other sports gear, a mouthguard will wear out, making it less effective. If your mouthguard has holes or tears, or if it becomes loose, it can irritate the teeth and oral tissues. Occasionally check the mouthguard’s condition and replace it as necessary.
