Great pediatric dentistry is about more than just providing incredible dental care for kids – it’s also about offering providers, staff, and facilities that make kids love going to the dentist! At South Austin Dental Studio, we strive not only to provide the very best state-of-the-art dental care for your kids, but to help children establish a lifelong enthusiasm for great oral care.
For young kids entering any doctor’s office, first impressions count. We’re proud to offer an environment that’s fun, warm, and welcoming for kids, making them feel at home and comfortable right away. Our experienced staff connect with kids and help them develop positive associations with their dental experience from start to finish.
Throughout their visits to the dentist, kids are encouraged to ask questions, and we make a special effort to get kids excited about their own oral health through good habits like daily brushing and flossing. Involving kids in their dental care not only helps them build confidence at the dentist, but helps to establish lifelong habits that set the stage for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Our thorough, gentle pediatric dental services help to prevent cavities and other issues from developing, as well as address existing problems in a friendly and painless way. We understand that one bad memory can affect dental care for the rest of a child’s life, which is why we strive to make each and every visit to the dentist fun and comfortable, whether they’re receiving:
As soon as a baby’s first tooth comes in, it’s time to establish regular visits to the dentist. We provide care for young babies, toddlers, children, and teens alike, and employ our 30 years’ experience and expertise to help you and your child navigate the unique dental challenges of each stage in their young lives. From fighting baby bottle tooth decay to extracting wisdom teeth and everything in between, we’ll not only provide your child with the care they need, but also help them to establish great dental habits that will last for the rest of their lives.
We also understand that dental emergencies happen, whether it’s a broken or knocked-out tooth, or a midnight toothache. That’s why we’re proud to be an Austin family dentist that provides emergency dental services for the whole family to ensure that you receive the care you need whenever you may need it.
Sometimes, kids can be anxious about their dental visits. We understand! That’s why we work closely with you and your child to listen carefully to any concerns and provide medications to help your child stay happy and calm at the dentist. Our safe and effective sedation is effective for:
One popular and very effective method of sedation in pediatric dentistry is nitrous oxide. Commonly known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a safe medication inhaled through a nose mask that provides a calming and sometimes euphoric effect. Laughing gas is very safe for kids, and the effects disappear quickly after the mask is removed. Some children with significant anxiety or sensitivity require different or stronger medications, and we’ll review all your options and the risks and benefits of each.
As a trusted pediatric dentist in Austin for the past 30 years, our patients know that we’ll work with you and your child to make their dental visits fun and encouraging experiences that will positively influence their oral health into adulthood and beyond.
