Dental care is an important part of health, especially our children’s health. The eruption of teeth from infancy and the loss of these teeth as children get older is a huge part of their lives and it is vital that children have the proper dental care at the earliest stages of their development. At Children’s Dental Group, we ensure a more comprehensive approach to children’s dentistry. Our Pasadena pediatric dentists do more than just caring for and cleaning your child’s teeth.
At Children’s Dental Group, we don’t simply clean your child’s teeth. We also provide a wide array of preventative and restorative dental services. Aside from these measures any of our Pasadena pediatric dentists will impart oral health instruction to help encourage life-long healthy cleaning and care habits. We know that dental health and good oral hygiene are important to growing minds and growing teeth, but we also go the extra mile to make sure that your child is absolutely comfortable while they are in our dentist’s care. The environment here at Children’s Dental Group is friendly and inviting. We have plenty of things to keep your kids at ease, from a movie theater, rides and video games that are in a colorful environment that help keep your kids at ease. Additionally, we know how scary the dentist can seem to kids and we take these thoughts into consideration. Oral sedation is an available option for children who are anxious about dental procedures and we work with anesthesiologists to provide intravenous sedation when absolutely appropriate.
Our entire dental approach is designed with your kids’ well-being in mind. The waiting room is a wonderland that will help ease your children into the dentist’s chair and learn not to be afraid of the dentist or of being healthy. We want your kids to be absolutely comfortable while our Pasadena pediatric dentists conducts a full screening to ensure your child’s needs are met during your visit and future visits. Here at Children’s Dental Group, we want to make sure that kids are both happy and healthy, as well as learn that dental health doesn’t have to be so scary and is an important part of growing up.
When a child has a very deep cavity to the point of getting close to the pulp of the tooth or into the pulp, the tissue becomes inflamed (swollen) and irritated and causes tooth pain. It’s very important to get this treated right away. If left untreated, an abscess can form. If your child shows any signs of tooth pain such as irritability, holding the side of their face, or if your child is old enough and complains about having a tooth ache, we highly recommend that you make an appointment with our expert Pasadena kid’s dentist at Children’s Dental Group as soon as possible.

Our expert Pasadena kid’s dentist at Children’s Dental Group will do a thorough dental exam in order to make a diagnosis and to discuss treatment recommendations with you. The treatment options will be determined by several factors including how severe the problem is. If your child has a very deep cavity there is a possibility that a pulpotomy may be necessary. A pulpotomy is a common procedure in pediatric dentistry that is done to save a baby tooth. A pulpotomy is a surgical procedure in which the inflamed nerve tissue (the pulp) is removed. Although a pulpotomy is similar to a root canal, it is not the same. During a pulpotomy only the crown portion of the primary (baby) tooth is removed; the root canals are not removed. A pulpotomy is relatively quick and painless and is an effective way to eliminate the infection in the nerve and to save your child’s tooth. It’s highly recommended that you take your child to a very experienced pediatric dentist as opposed to a general dentist. Pediatric dentists, such as our expert Pasadena kid’s dentist at Children’s Dental Group specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and routine dental care of children.
