SC Dental Best takes pride in the child friendly atmosphere we provide. Our specialized pediatric training ensures that your child feels comfortable at the dentist. This will allow them to take dental care more seriously as they grow older.
Here are some of the pediatric dental services we offer:
We believe that preventative dentistry is the best approach for children. Enforcing a strong sense of dental hygiene and the habits that go along with it. This will ensure that there are fewer complications and issues growing up.
SC Dental Best uses the latest technology to keep our treatments as eco-friendly as possible. From Digital Radiographs that use 90% less radiation to resin composite fillings, our goal is to provide the safest dental solutions for your children.
Baby & Toddler Dentistry
It might seem strange to start dental care so early but it can make a difference. Cavities can begin to form as soon as teeth appear (even baby teeth). Learning good habits and becoming comfortable with regular dental care can create beautiful smiles for years to come.
Anxiety is often a major concern for parents of young children. Often a child's anxiety stems from their parent's anxiety. Our practice focuses on ensuring your whole family feels comfortable at the dentist. We find that using the "lap to lap" examination approach can help. The "lap to lap" exam is conducted with babies and even some toddlers. Your child will sit in your lap while their head on the doctor's lap. This way they can see you at all times and you will be able to reassure and calm them.
If necessary Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen can be used for sedation purposes. Since your child will remain conscious this is the safest sedative possible for calming nerves and if the child has a gag reflex to examination.
