Pediatric Dentistry in Johnstown
A dental visit can be a positive experience or a terrifying experience for kids, which can create dental anxiety that carries on into their adult life. At Premier Dental of Johnstown, Dr. Emily Cook and team provide a safe, comfortable environment that eases kids into dental visits and strives to create a relationship with your child that eases any anxiety that they may have. We work hard to establish a relationship early with our pediatric patients so they look forward to future visits to our office in Johnstown.
As a parent, we are here to answer any questions you have about your child's tooth development. Our pediatric visits are designed to monitor their teeth and jaws as they grow, catch any potential problems early, and teach them proper techniques for keeping their teeth and gums healthy.
We see kids as young as 2 years old, providing a lap exam, where mom or dad will hold the toddler in their lap while we do an examination. As kids grow and get more comfortable with pediatric dental visits, they graduate to the "Big Chair" for exams, cleanings, and of course a chance to squirt the water jet.
Importance of Pediatric Dentist Visits
- Establish a comfort level with the dental office environment
- Become accustomed with a dentist examining their mouth
- Monitoring of baby teeth, gum and jaw structure
- Catch cavities early in baby teeth
- Teach proper hygiene techniques
- Create a relationship with your dentist
Other Pediatric Dentistry Services
In addition to exams, there are circumstances that require additional pediatric dental services are needed. In the event that your child has a cavity in one of their baby teeth, your dentist will fill or seal the cavity. We also offer fluoride treatment to help strengthen tooth enamel. Dental X-rays are also important to see what is happening in your child's gums to ensure teeth are coming in properly and if a tooth extraction is necessary to make room for adult teeth. And because we know accidents happen, we also provide emergency pediatric dentistry for chipped or broken teeth.
