Paediatric Dentistry at Madigan Dental

dentist-with-little-girl-3As a family dental practice, we’re passionate about helping our youngest patients look after their smiles. Through preventative strategies and early intervention, your child can enjoy stronger teeth and reduce their risk of common dental concerns.

We make it convenient for everyone in your household to get gentle, quality dental care in the same location. Flexible scheduling options make it possible to book your child’s checkups at a time that fits your busy routine.

A Child-Friendly Atmosphere

When we moved to our new location, we created a special area just for children. Our kid-friendly exam room helps young patients feel comfortable and excited about their visits with us. After we’ve checked their teeth, your child will be rewarded with a special gold coin that they can take to our treasure tower and select the toy of their choice.

Children’s Services Offered

Routine Exams — Regular checkups allow us to identify potential concerns and intercept them when they’re smaller, easier and less-invasive to correct (if not completely reverse). Doing so ensures the healthiest smile for your child and limits the amount of treatment they need in the future.

Preventative Sealants — Pit and fissure sealants protect cavity-prone areas that are hard to keep clean. A sealant takes only a few minutes to apply, so we can add them onto your child’s regular scale and clean appointment. We recommend sealing permanent molars as soon as they erupt, which is usually around age 6 and 12, depending on your child.

Gentle Cleanings — Our hygienists use special tools to clean buildup and stain off of your child’s teeth. Plus, we’ll share tailored oral hygiene instructions to help them care for their teeth and gums as best as possible.

Fluoride Treatment — Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens tooth enamel and makes it more resistant against decay and sensitivity. We recommend a fluoride application at every checkup!

Tooth Restoration — Cavities can cause pain, interfere with your child’s speech or diet and spread into adjacent teeth. Our practice offers mercury-free fillings for treating areas of decay and crowns for protecting teeth with significant structural damage. Since losing a tooth prematurely can physically alter your child’s orofacial development, we aim to preserve their natural smile as long as possible.
