Cary, North Carolina family dentist Dr. Adam Moore is pleased to offer cleanings, examinations, and other age-appropriate services for the youngest members of your household. We can begin seeing your child for pediatric dentistry visits as soon as his or her first tooth appears to help ensure proper development and to begin acquainting them with dental visits. We recommend not waiting longer than your child’s first birthday to make an appointment, even if very few teeth have erupted. These visits are essential for helping children feel confident and comfortable with routine dental care.
Dr. Moore caters pediatric services to meet the needs of each child. Depending on where your child is developmentally, this may include:
- Checking for proper tooth eruption
- Cleaning and fluoride treatment
In some instances, fillings and similar general dental treatments are appropriate for children as well. This, as with all aspects of your child’s dental care, will be based on his or her specific needs and never performed without your permission.
Anesthesia Free Fillings
If your child is in need of a filling due to a cavity, Moore Family Dentistry offers Anesthesia Free Fillings with the Solea Laser. What does that mean for you, our patient? You are now able to receive the care you need in a fraction of the time—and discomfort—you were accustomed to from traditional drills. Solea is also far less invasive than using a traditional handpiece, which makes healing time following a procedure much shorter. When patients have anesthesia they typically leave the office with that numb feeling still prevalent. With Solea, you are able to go right out to lunch or back to school without that numb sensation following your appointment. Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentist!
For more information or to schedule your child's routine dental visit please call our office at (919) 772-1811 to schedule an appointment.
