Pediatric dentistry services available for healthier smiles

Dentistry for children is just as crucial as dentistry for all other ages. In fact, by ensuring your child gets the pediatric dental care they need with a kid’s dentist, you are creating a foundation for a healthier smile for life. At RK Dentistry in Danville, California, Dr. Richard J. Koeltl and his team are committed to helping children with pediatric dentistry services for infants, toddlers, and school-aged children.

What services are provided by a pediatric dentistry practice?

Pediatric dentists provide a wide range of services to help ensure your child’s oral health. Some of the most common services provided by pediatric dentists include:

  • Preventive oral care. The prevention of problems such as periodontal disease and tooth decay can be achieved with preventative oral care solutions. This includes regular cleanings and examinations, dental sealant applications, and fluoride treatments.
  • General dentistry services. Our team will talk to your child about the prevention and treatment of tooth decay, filling cavities, and diagnosing and treating mouth and gum diseases.
  • Orthodontic evaluations and referrals. We know that a properly aligned bite can look attractive and reduce the risk of damage to the teeth. We can evaluate your child to determine if they are a good candidate for orthodontic treatment now or in the future and provide referrals if needed.
  • Dental extractions. Whether your child has an impacted or significantly broken tooth or is preparing for orthodontic work to address overcrowding, we can remove the tooth or teeth before moving forward with any treatment.

With comprehensive care from an experienced pediatric dentist, children can enjoy healthy teeth and gums through adulthood with the help of Dr. Koeltl and his team at RK Dentistry.
