Our goal of providing the best pediatric dental care to all of our young patients in Fairfield is at the forefront of everything we do. That’s why we’ve invested in the latest technologies so we can utilize advanced techniques to ensure your child is getting the excellent treatment they deserve, and that they remain comfortable throughout their visit.
We have a CO2 laser for quick frenectomies with minimal healing time. Our intra-oral scanner and portable low-radiation digital x-ray machine allow us to create accurate images of our patients’ mouths to more accurately and effectively plan treatments. And then, when it comes to keeping that treatment pain-free, we use “The Wand,” a computer-aided system that delivers anesthesia directly to the treatment site, minimizing any unwanted numbness. Then, to minimize discomfort after treatment, we utilize an anesthesia reversal agent called OraVerse to decrease the time it takes for anesthetic effects to wear off.
We know that life can be busy, especially when it comes to taking care of little ones.
