Pedodontics
 

Pedodontics, or pediatric dentistry, is the specialty of dental work dealing with children. We like to begin seeing children at 3 1/2 years old. At that age, usually no serious work needs to be done on the child, and it is an enjoyable experience.

Hopefully, that sets a lifetime of positive experiences with no dental phobias for the child. We will let the child play a little with the water syringe, push the buttons on the dental chair, and even use the foot pedal to run the polishing drill. All positives. We show Mom and Dad how to brush the child's teeth to make sure they are cleaned well.

If work needs to be done, even that turns out well. Dr. Larry is honest and upfront with the child, showing them everything he is going to do before he does it. Well, almost everything. Dr. Larry uses "sleepy water" instead of a shot, and with his technique the kids don't even know they are getting a shot unless they are told by some one else. "By the time they turn sixteen years old, I'll probably tell them that they have been receiving shots all these years," says Dr. Larry.

Another service offered for the children is interceptive orhtodontics. Many major orthodontic problems that develop into comprehensive treatment in the adult dentition, can be circumvented with much easier treatment at an earlier age. Interceptive orthodontics is routinely done at Kettle Moraine Dental with great results and at a savings of thousands of dollars. Please call for any questions.
