Dental Services for Children
Growing Smiles in Floral Vale offers a variety of dental procedures that incorporate leading, technically advanced equipment on a daily basis. Our office specializes in preventative dental care to start healthy dental habits from a young age, as we will teach you and your child proper brushing, flossing and eating habits. We strongly advocate the use of sealants and fluoride to help prevent dental decay.
Dr. Radin is an expert in oral sedation exclusively for children. Oral sedation is commonly used in pediatric dentistry for children with dental phobias, low pain tolerance, severe anxiety, major dental treatment, physical handicaps or strong gag reflexes. We also recommend nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to help calm the anxious child. It is a mild sedative and patients are conscious and can talk during their dental visit. Nitrous oxide rarely has side effects and is used routinely for many dental procedures.
Our beautiful, newly renovated office is built from sustainable materials and the use of state-of-the-art digital X-Rays reduces radiation exposure and eliminates the use of chemical processors, thereby reducing our impact on the environment. We also use an intra-oral camera that projects images onto a digital screen to provide you with a more clear and concise view of your child’s oral condition.
