What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Lifetime Smiles of Escondido Specializes in Pediatric Dentistry
Lifetime Smiles of Escondido Specializes in Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the study and treatment of children’s teeth and overall oral health. At Lifetime Smiles, we take your child’s dental health very seriously. We pride ourselves in shaping a positive perception of dentistry for children.  We believe that the early experiences your child has at the dentist will shape their future oral health.

The Lifetime Smiles Difference

We are proud of the fact that all the children who visit our Escondido, California dental office are never afraid, hop in the chair with enthusiasm, and look forward to their appointments.  We are able to provide gentle pediatric dentistry by incorporating our latest dental technology and positive reinforcement to make dentistry fun and painless.

How do we help children feel comfortable at the dentist?

As part of our commitment to our young patients, we never use a traditional dental syringe to deliver local anesthesia. We use the latest computer-delivered anesthetic system, called Single Tooth Anesthesia to provide our little cherubs with comfortable and painless dentistry.  Since children do not yet have the preconceived notions about injections that most adults do, they never even flinch while receiving our Single Tooth Anesthesia.  Thanks to our child-friendly office, they are usually relaxed watching a movie while we take care of their teeth.

We also use a powerful modern technology called Cari-vu, which uses trans-illumination technology to detect cavities without the use of radiation. With Cari-vu, we can detect early cavities to make appointments shorter, save tooth structure, and reduce costs.
