We are a pediatric dentist’s office in Wesley Chapel, FL. Dr. Fallah provides comprehensive dental care so that children can stay in excellent oral health. With ongoing, regular appointments, we can identify and treat infections early so that your child can avoid feeling any discomfort or having premature tooth loss. As a kids’ dentist, we understand how important it is for your child to remain in good health, and we do our best to make that a reality.
Why Visit a Pediatric Dentist?
Many people ask why it is so important to visit a pediatric dentist, and the answer is simple – experience. While many dentists may treat children, if they are not a kids’ dentist, they may lack the experience necessary to keep a child comfortable during their dental treatments. When treating children, it is not enough to get the job done; how it is done is equally important. At Apex Dentall, we understand that the way a child feels during their first several dental visits will influence how they react to dentistry throughout their lifetime. A positive experience now can set the tone for ongoing, regular dental care throughout their adult life. A negative or scary dental visit can have the opposite effect and make them not want to visit the dentist anymore. In our office, we treat children from throughout the 33544 area and take active steps to ensure their emotional and physical comfort. To learn more, or to schedule a dental exam, call (813) 358-6808.
We’re a Convenient Kids’ Dentist
Our children’s dentist office is conveniently located in Wesley Chapel. We treat children from a very young age. We believe that preventive oral health care is essential to their ability to eat and speak clearly, avoid discomfort, and decrease the need for braces later on. We also know that most families have an extremely busy schedule, and it can be difficult to make a dental appointment in between school, soccer and ballet. As a kids’ dentist, we will work with you to schedule appointments for a time that is convenient so that you don’t have to pull the kids out of school or take too much time off work. Let us know what your scheduling restrictions are when calling our office so that we can provide you with a convenient appointment time.
Pediatric Dentistry Procedures
Dr. Fallah offers a variety of pediatric dentistry procedures that can help your child to stay in excellent oral health. While it starts with a dental exam and teeth cleaning, this is only the beginning. As a children’s dentist office, we can also complete fluoride treatments and seal the teeth when necessary. These two procedures can help to strengthen and protect teeth so that they are less likely to become infected or get a cavity. While simple and fast, these two procedures can work together or separately to prevent your child from experiencing any unnecessary dental pain that can be caused by a cavity.
If your child does get a cavity or an infection, we can treat it right away so that they can feel comfortable again. Even baby teeth need to be treated because of the discomfort that they can cause your child. Fortunately, Dr. Fallah is an expert at working with young children, and though the teeth are smaller, the procedure can be completed with precision so that they get the care they need without further complications. In order to help children relax and remain comfortable during this type of treatment, we offer sedation dentistry. This may be as simple as providing your child with laughing gas to relax, or if they are very small, they may need to be put to sleep while we complete the procedure. As a kids’ dentist, we only use sedation when necessary. Therefore, it can be dangerous for a child to be wiggly when dental tools are in their mouth. As such, it is sometimes better for a small child to sleep during a procedure rather than risk them moving and getting a secondary cut as a result.
As a children’s dentist, we will discuss all of these treatment options, including the possibility of sedation, with you. This way, you can make an informed decision as to the dental work you want to have completed and the timing of it. In some cases, parents prefer to postpone treating minor cavities for a few months if they feel their child may experience a developmental milestone, for example turning four years old, that may make them more prepared for the treatment. At Apex Dentall, we will work with you to ensure that both you and your child are confident in the decisions that you make regarding their oral health care.
A Comfortable Children’s Dentist
When you get to our dental office, you will instantly see the difference. As a children’s dentist office, we have designed our lobby and exam rooms to be kid-friendly. You will find age-appropriate books, toys and warm colors that can help your child to relax and feel at ease. We also recommend that if you live in the 33544 area, you bring your child by our office before their first dental exam. When a child is familiar with an environment, they are more likely to be relaxed and to feel safe. Stop by and say hello to our friendly office staff so that when you return to our children’s dentist office for a teeth cleaning, your child will feel at ease during their appointment.
When it comes time to clean and examine their teeth, you’ll find that Dr. Fallah is an expert pediatric dentist, and that will help your child to feel comfortable during their appointment. With a friendly demeanor and conversation, we can help your child to feel right at home. We also believe in letting children set the pace, so if cleaning teeth is too much for the first visit, we will start with an exam and schedule a second appointment for the actual teeth cleaning. The goal is to set a trend for lifelong oral health, and that starts with a positive experience. To schedule an appointment with our Wesley Chapel kids’ dentist office, call (813) 358-6808.
