Sedation is typically administered to healthy individuals who need help relaxing or managing treatment anxiety. Reasons for needing sedation may include lengthy procedure times, dental phobias, or fear caused by negative experiences in the past.

Nitrous Oxide

Studies show that fear of the dentist is more often due to society’s misplaced belief that dental treatments are all painful more so than an actual painful experience. Dentists use nitrous oxide to help patients have a relaxed and pain free dental visit.

Dental sealants are clear coatings applied to the surfaces of a child’s molars to prevent the development of tooth decay. They work by preventing food and plaque from resting in the grooves and crevices of molars – an area especially susceptible to cavities. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, nearly 1 in 3 U.S. children ages 6 to 12 currently have sealants on their teeth.

ICON Treatment for Fluorosis

Having the proper amount of fluoride can help prevent and control tooth decay in both children and adults. Fluoride is vital for tooth development, but consuming fluoride can also cause a range of changes to the tooth’s enamel, or the surface of the tooth that protects the inner layers from decay and infection. Changes to the tooth’s enamel surface are often called dental fluorosis. While it can typically appear in children, it can also occur in adults in rare cases. If you’re a parent raising children, or an adult who wishes to learn more, here’s a simple breakdown about dental fluorosis and how it can be prevented.

Pulp Therapy for children

Pulp Therapy

Pulpal therapy is a pediatric dental treatment used to treat and preserve a child’s natural tooth that has been affected by an injury or tooth decay. The pulp is a soft tissue located inside the teeth. When a tooth becomes damaged or decayed, the pulp may be exposed to bacteria, causing infection and pain. Rather than extract the tooth entirely, the infected pulp may be removed and replaced with a filler that prevents bacteria from further damaging the tooth.

Keeping a child’s teeth strong and healthy requires preventative measures. At our pediatric dental practice, prevention is the foundation of all we do.
