About Pediatric Dentistry

IMG_2461-Dr-B

At Tots To Teens & In Bee-Tween, our pediatric dentists Dr. B and Dr. Lin are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood through the teenage years.

Your Child’s Teeth

Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. By age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by secondary, permanent teeth. Without proper dental care, children face possible oral decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Today, early childhood dental caries—an infectious disease—is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever. We are dedicated to keeping your children cavity-free!



What Types of Treatments Do Our Pediatric Dentists Provide?

Dr. B and Dr. Lin provide comprehensive oral health care that includes the following:

  • Infant oral health exams, which include risk assessment for caries in mother and child
  • Preventive dental care including cleaning and fluoride treatments, as well as nutrition and diet recommendations
  • Habit counseling (for example, pacifier use and thumb sucking)
  • Early assessment and treatment for straightening teeth and correcting an improper bite (orthodontics)
  • Repair of tooth cavities or defects
  • Diagnosis of oral conditions associated with diseases such as diabetes, congenital heart defects, asthma, hay fever, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • Management of gum diseases and conditions including ulcers, short frenulae, mucoceles, and pediatric periodontal disease
  • When necessary, Pediatric Sedation is used to reduce the child’s anxiety and discomfort during their dental visits.
    Sedation helps children relax, cope, and feel happier about treatment.
  • Care for dental injuries (for example, fractured, displaced, or knocked-out teeth)

The Best Care For Your Children

Children are not just small adults. They are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a dental exam.

Our pediatric dentists know how to examine and treat children in ways that make them comfortable. In addition, at our Tots To Teens’ office, we use specially designed equipment that is arranged and decorated with your children in mind.

Dr. B and Dr. Lin offer a wide range of treatment options, as well as expertise and training to care for your child’s teeth, gums and mouth. When your pediatrician suggests that your child receive a dental exam, you can be assured that our team at Tots To Teens & In-Bee-Tween will provide the best possible care.
