Learn About OurApproach to Pediatric Dentistry
At Austin Pearls Pediatric Dentistry, we aim to provide high-quality dental care with a fun twist. Just like no two pearls are the same, we understand that no two children are the same, either. That’s why we work one-on-one with patients and their guardians to create truly customized treatment plans based on each patient’s oral health, personality, and more. Our mission is to help kids achieve and maintain healthy, beautiful smiles through clear communication and teamwork!
The Benefits of Choosing a Pediatric Dentist
Pediatric dentists receive extensive training focused on the development and growth of teeth, working with smaller smiles, and understanding the emotional and developmental stages of children. Pediatric dentists specialize in treating children ages 1 to 18, as well as caring for patients with special needs. Our pediatric dentists, Dr. Ryu and Dr. Kim, have years of experience and the credentials to provide your child with the level of care they deserve!
Relaxing Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide is a sweet-smelling gas that we administer through a soft mask placed over the nose. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide puts children into a giddy, almost euphoric state of being. Nitrous oxide is one of the safest and most common sedation options for kids. It can be used for kids that are anxious, fidgety, or have a strong gag reflex.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a slightly stronger form of sedation than nitrous oxide. This type of sedation comes in liquid form that is dispensed in the office prior to dental treatment. Oral conscious sedation is a great option for patients undergoing more complex dental treatment or patients with severe dental anxiety.
