Pediatric Dentistry and Braces

Pediatric Dental FAQs

  • It is recommended to schedule a general check-up with our Pediatric Dentist as soon as your child gets their first tooth and no later than their first birthday.

    We see children much earlier than that too (just days after birth even), especially if a parent and or another healthcare professional have a concern, from tongue tie, lactation issues, speech therapy concerns, or cleft, just to name a few examples.

  • During the first visit, you will get some information about dental care. The Purple Tooth Dentist will check your kid’s teeth placement and overall oral health and look for any potential problems with the gums and jaw. Then we have our transparency promise, where we only treatment plan what is needed, only treat what was planned, and only charge for what was treated.

  • It is one of the main concerns that bother parents a lot. All you have to do is maintain a positive attitude and never say anything negative about your experience at the dentist. You can also show your kid the images of our dental office and refer to some of our amazing video tutorials on the website (coming soon).

  • Purple Tooth generally recommends scheduling checkups every six months. However, depending on the circumstances of your kid’s oral health, we may suggest more frequent visits (i.e. braces).

  • According to dental experts, it is suggested to clean the gums with a damp, soft washcloth after feeding. Choose a toothbrush with soft bristles and a small head if teeth are present.

  • Preventive Care

    We all are well aware of the golden sayings "prevention is better than cure" and "it's cheaper to prevent it than to fix it." But the question is, how many parents encourage their kids to implement this in their healthcare routine? The answer is very few.

  • Sealants

    Protect against cavities: Dental Sealants help protect a child's (or even adult's) teeth from cavities by covering the top of their tooth with a "tooth-colored" plastic that makes it difficult for bacteria to remain on a tooth. As a result of the dental sealants, the bacteria cannot attack the enamel of the tooth.

  • Pulp Treatment

    During a Pulp treatment, the pulp is extracted (removed), and the tooth is cleaned thoroughly. Children need pulp treatment (also called a root canal) when a tooth is severely decayed or sometimes due to trauma. Root canal treatment requires one visit typically, but sometimes more visits are necessary.

  • Restorative Care

    Our clinic uses high-quality crowns as we don't want our patients to face any problems in the future. Dental crowns provide reliability and longevity when restoring the severely decayed tooth.

  • Braces

    A confident smile on the face of children (and adults) look impressive and appealing and it helps to bolster confidence. Our professional Purple Tooth Dentists offer braces treatment with easy-to-pay low monthly costs or discounted options.

  • Sedation Dentistry

    Some patients often feel frightened when they go for dental treatment. They think it's going to be too painful, and for some, even the sound of certain dental equipment can cause real discomfort. Purple Tooth Dentists carefully treat everyone with a 100% comfort-focused approach.

  • Emergency Dentistry

    Having a toothache, chipped or broken tooth, knocked out tooth, loose brackets and bands, or abscess are all considered common dental emergencies. Moreover, infection or inflammation related to the dental pulp comes into the same category as dental emergencies. The professionals of Purple Tooth are always here for you.
