At Great Grins for KIDS - Oregon City, dentistry for kids is more than bright, healthy smiles; it's also about making the trip to the dentist a calm, pleasant experience so there's no fear of "next time." We take pride in seeing our patients grow into their adult teeth, so we're committed to earning the trust of everyone who visits our practice—both children and parents. That's why we take extra time to build rapport and earn confidence; it makes the experience easier for everyone. As a part of our care, we use pleasant, simple explanations to answer your child's questions and calm any anxieties. Of course, we're also happy to address any concerns or questions you might have as a parent.

We are Here for Your Kids

At Great Grins for KIDS - Oregon City, we understand that going to the dentist can be a scary prospect for any child. For this reason, we take every step to make our office as child-friendly as possible, allowing your child to feel comfortable. Our waiting area is filled with books and toys for children of all ages. During your first visit, we will introduce your child to the tools that we use to keep their teeth and gums healthy, which can often aid in relieving anxiety. We will work with your child to make sure that he or she understands what happens next as they get older.

Preventative Dentistry

Your child’s milk teeth are going to one day be replaced with adult teeth, but just because these teeth are going to fall out doesn’t mean they don’t require care. Healthy teeth and gums are important to preventing tooth decay and gum disease, which can affect the development of adult teeth. We provide your child with cleanings, exams and X-rays to keep their teeth clean and check for the presence of any issues. Children are often prone to cavities, so we provide fluoride treatments to help keep enamel strong and prevent cavity formation. And dental sealants help to prevent cavities in the deeper crevices on the chewing surfaces of molars. We can help to explain the importance of brushing and flossing as well as help you come up with some creative ways to get a defiant child to the bathroom sink. And when the milk teeth do eventually fall out, we also offer space maintainers, which help to keep the spaces open for adult teeth to grow in properly.

Restorative Dentistry

Sometimes, things happen to your child’s teeth that compromise their smile and the health of their teeth. Even though the milk teeth will eventually fall out, these issues can still present a problem, and should be taken care of. Restorative dentistry can help to protect milk teeth as well as new adult teeth. Fillings take care of the damage caused by tooth decay, filling in cavities after the bacteria and decay are cleared out. For permanent teeth that have become infected, we can perform a root canal procedure. Should a tooth be damaged beyond repair, your child may need to undergo a tooth extraction. If your child loses his or her milk teeth too early, it can affect the eruption of permanent teeth, so, for this reason, we offer partial dentures. And if your child’s teeth are significantly discolored, we can perform teeth whitening to restore their brilliant white smile. Many of our restorative dentistry procedures can be completed using laser dentistry, which eliminates the need for scary, and painful, needles and scalpels.

Sedation Dentistry

We understand that your child may be a bit anxious when getting into the dentist’s chair, even for something as simple as a cleaning. Sedation allows your child to get the proper oral care he or she needs without emotional trauma. We offer three types of sedation dentistry. The first is nitrous oxide, which is an inhaled “laughing gas.” Your child will inhale the gas through a mask, and will be calmed immediately. The effects will wear off as soon as the mask is removed. Oral conscious sedation uses a medication that is taken by mouth to reduce anxiety, make him or her sleepy and increase happiness. Your child may not remember the experience. Finally, we also offer general anesthesia, which will allow us to complete dental work while your child is completely asleep.
