What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Good dental health is vital for every member of the household, regardless of their age. At Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics, we offer pediatric dental care for the youngest members of your family. Our team invites you to schedule your child's initial trip to our dentist before they turn one. From there, parents should make sure their children visit the dentist at least two times a year for cleanings and exams. Our intention is to provide your child a fun and stress-free trip to our Wyomissing, PA practice to give them a positive association with visiting the dentist that will last the rest of their life. Throughout your child's dental visit, one of our skilled pediatric dentists will assess the development of their teeth, search for issues or areas of trouble, and teach them how to keep up a good oral care routine at home. To find out more on pediatric dentistry for your family, contact Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics to make a consultation.

"I have been going to this dental group for over 25 years and they have continually been outstanding and have gone over and above what other dental groups offer! 4-27-20 : I had to go into an emergency visit to see the dentist and everyone in the office was so helpful and nice as well as caring. This is a difficult time right now and I put off going for the longest time and they suggested I come in and they would take good care of me and they did. Very very happy..."- D.M. / Google / May 02, 2020
"At a time when being a dentist is challenging to say the least, Grove Dental was kind enough to treat me when I needed a root canal. They were extremely professional and also very caring. Defining what a “dental emergency” is during the Covid-19 outbreak is a very difficult task and one not to be taken lightly. Grove Dental took every possible precaution to keep me safe during Covid-19 when I needed dental work and I am very grateful to them for that. Thank you Dr. Jason!"- S.L. / Google / May 02, 2020

Who Can Benefit from Pediatric Dentistry?
Babies can develop cavities and tooth decay as early as two years old. Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics can offer preventive choices and procedures to help keep the teeth and minimize decay. Your kid might have their baby (primary) teeth for several years; therefore, it is important to keep their mouth healthy until your child gets their permanent teeth. To encourage this, you should schedule appointments for your children two times a year for examinations and cleanings. During their visits, one of our skilled dentists could diagnosis any early problems, like cavities, dental malocclusion, or bruxism, and also recommend procedures, such as tooth-colored fillings, in-office fluoride treatments, orthodontics, and more.
What To Expect From My Child's Pediatric Treatment
Several problems can be addressed in your child's dental visit. Generally, their appointment will include a dental exam and a dental cleaning. After their cleaning, a treatment of fluoride may be suggested in order to strengthen the teeth and enamel while they are developing. In addition, sealants are usually recommended to minimize tooth decay (cavities). Our team can also address teeth that show signs of decay or are damaged, chipped, or broken by creating a successful treatment plan. Other pediatric dentistry services we offer include:
- Fluoride treatments
- Digital x-rays
- Tooth extractions
- Dental restorations
- Emergency care
- Dental appliances
About Pediatric Dental Restorations
When cavities or other types of tooth damage are detected, our pediatric dentists may recommend dental restorations, such as dental fillings or crowns (also called caps). Dental fillings are often used to restore decayed teeth or to fix a broken or chipped tooth. In some cases, a procedure known as a pulpotomy may be performed to treat a tooth that is infected internally. When this occurs, a dental crown may then be placed to strengthen and protect the tooth. Our caring team takes a gentle approach when providing pediatric dental restorations and will take steps to help your child feel comfortable and at ease during their visit.
After Each Pediatric Dentistry Appointment
If one of our Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics specialists detects a problem during your child's dental visit, you might need to schedule a follow-up visit for a procedure. We know how important your child's general and oral well-being is so we will talk to you and your child about the most important steps in a dental hygiene routine, including regular flossing and brushing, as well as other ways to maintain proper oral health. We can also demonstrate techniques on the right way to brush and floss to avoid problems.
Insurance Coverage for Pediatric Dentistry
Typically, pediatric examinations and cleanings are paid for by your dental insurance provider. If a dental restoration or another type of treatment is necessary, like x-rays or orthodontics, our financial team will get in touch with your insurance provider to determine any additional costs. Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics accepts many payments, such as medical financing, that could help make your child's dental treatment easier to afford.
