Pediatric Dentistry in Waukee, IA
At Lush Family Dental, we enjoy treating our youngest patients. We are proud to provide top-quality pediatric dental care in a kid-friendly environment.
Pediatric dentistry is a branch of dentistry that is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy to the age of 18.
We are committed to treating our young patients with a gentle touch and helping to set a foundation for a lifetime of oral health.
At Lush Family Dental we offer dental sealants, fluoride application, fillings, crowns, and emergency dentistry.
A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating that is painted on the surface of the back teeth to protect them from bacteria. Premolars and molars have fissures that cannot always be properly cleaned by toothbrushes because they are very narrow. Sealants help to smooth out these depressions to keep bacteria out. The application of dental sealants is fast and painless.
Fluoride helps to prevent tooth decay and to strengthen the teeth. Fluoride varnish is safe for kids, and there is very little risk of it being swallowed. The application of fluoride is fast and painless.
Dental fillings are made from a composite-plastic resin compound and used to seal up cavities on the surface of the tooth. They help to prevent further damage to the teeth by preventing bacteria from gaining access to the inside of the tooth.
Dental crowns (or caps) are placed over a damaged or weakened tooth like a cap to protect it from further damage. Our crowns are durable, and they will help your kids regain the normal use of the affected tooth.
Emergency dentistry is the dental attention or treatment given to a patient in an emergency situation. This is relatively common among kids. Call us right away, and we will work to see your child as soon as possible.
At Lush Family Dental, our dental professionals are caring, fun-loving, and most of all sensitive to the feelings of your child. Let us help your kids stay healthy and happy. Call (515) 207-3126 schedule an appointment.
