pediatric dentistry

Dr. Escobar loves kids and welcomes parents to bring their children for dental checkups.

Dr. Escobar knows a visit to the dentist can be frightening, especially for kids. We do everything we can to make it comforting and relaxing.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends you bring your child in for their first dental visit by their first birthday, or when their first tooth comes in. As soon as your child’s diet includes solid foods and they have erupted teeth, there is a potential for tooth decay.

When performing fillings and extractions on children it can help to give them nitrous oxide to make them more comfortable and relaxed. Escobar Family Dentistry is equipped with nitrous oxide for this reason.

Dr. Escobar may refer to a dental specialist depending on specific patient needs.

Nitrous oxide/oxygen is a safe, effective sedative agent used to calm a child’s fear of the dental visit and enhance effective communication. Additionally, it works well for children whose gag reflex interferes with dental treatment.
