Pediatric Service Overview







Dr. Shobhit Agarwal believes a trip to the dentist should be fun, lighthearted, and not something to fear. The way your child is exposed to dentistry lays the groundwork for how they view dental care and dental visits for the rest of their lives.

Dr. Shobhit Agarwal and his team loves caring for patients, and we work hard to make sure each child is spoken to gently, treated with respect, and cared for as if they were our own child. We use simple words to explain procedures to our patients and make sure each parent or guardian is aware of the process as well.



INFANT ORAL EXAM

Following the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, our doctors suggest infants should come in for their first oral exam between the ages of six months to 1 year old.


PEDIATRIC CLEANINGS & EXAMS

Routine cleanings and exams are necessary to make sure your child’s teeth stay healthy throughout childhood.


DIGITAL X-RAYS

Digital x-rays allow Dr. Shobhit Agarwal to get a view of your child’s teeth and jaws that he can’t see with his eyes while keeping radiation exposure to a minimum.


FLUORIDE

Regular fluoride treatments help reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities and can remineralize areas where decay is starting.


FRENECTOMIES

A frenum or frenulum is a small piece of tissue that attaches either the upper lip to the gum tissue or the tongue to the floor of the mouth.


PEDIATRIC SEALANTS

Sealants help protect your child’s teeth from decay by filling in the grooved biting surfaces of your child’s teeth, making them easier to clean.


SILVER DIAMINE FLUORIDE

The use of Silver Diamine Fluoride in dentistry is well documented for its ability to stop decay noninvasively.


RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

Restorative dentistry includes fillings, crowns, and other procedures that help restore a tooth to its original function.


DENTAL ANXIETY OPTIONS

Sometimes a child comes to us that has had a negative dental experience or they are too young to understand the dental treatment needed. We offer different sedation options to help them feel relaxed and comfortable.


BABY TOOTH ROOT CANAL

If a baby tooth has decay that has entered the nerve, or pulp, of the tooth, or if the tooth has suffered trauma, it may cause hot and cold sensitivity or constant pain. A root canal might be recommended


SPECIAL NEEDS DENTISTRY

When caring for children with special needs, our overall approach to dentistry doesn’t change, but the treatment plan may be slightly different to accommodate any issues you may be facing at home


SPORTS MOUTHGUARDS

It’s estimated that over 20 million children take part in one after-school sport or another. With that amount of children engaging in sports and other activities like skiing, gymnastics, and martial arts, there is a higher chance of injury.


TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS

Studies have shown that almost 33% of children aged 2 to 5 have had a cavity. Even though baby teeth are only around for a few short years, it’s still important to keep them healthy because they hold the space for your child’s adult teeth.


TOOTH EXTRACTIONS

An extraction can make both children and parents anxious, but they are a common procedure in most pediatric dental offices.
