Welcome to ARCH DENTAL CARE

Pediatric Services

Dr. Khan 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. Khan and her team love caring for our 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.

Tooth Extractions

While we focus on helping your child keep their teeth for a lifetime, sometimes an extraction is necessary. Whether it’s extensive decay, overcrowding, or an impacted tooth, Dr. Khan can help you and your child understand the procedure and answer any questions you have.

Infant Oral Exam

Studies have shown that the earlier a child receives their first dental exam, the less dental treatment was needed during their youth. Dr. Khan recommends oral exams for children when their first tooth erupts.

Pediatric Cleanings and Exams

Routine cleanings and exams are necessary to make sure your child’s teeth stay healthy throughout childhood. Arch Dental Care recommends two cleanings a year to maintain optimal oral health.elp you and your teen survive these sometimes difficult years.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays allow Dr. Khan to get a view of your child’s teeth and jaws that she can’t see with her 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. Dr. Khan believes regular fluoride treatments are an important part of treatment for most children.

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. Dr. Khan applies this light-cured material in minutes, and the procedure requires no anesthesia.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Silver Diamine Fluoride, or SDF, is a safe, noninvasive treatment that can stop decay in its tracks postponing the need for a permanent restoration, at least for a little while. Dr. Khan offers Silver Diamine Fluoride treatment in her office.

Special Needs Dentistry

Every child deserves access to compassionate, thorough dentistry in a comforting and supportive environment. Dr. Khan and her team are skilled in caring for children with special care needs.

Pediatric Services

Sealants

Deep crevices run across the chewing surface of molars. Even though a toothbrush can skim these surfaces, bacteria still settle into the narrow grooves beyond the bristles’ reach. Cavities may form and end up affecting the tooth’s nerve without warning, destroying valuable tooth structure. Protecting the grooves with a resin sealant may help prevent decay in your child’s back teeth.

Root Canals on Baby Teeth

Root canals on baby teeth can relieve a child’s pain and preserve a tooth until it’s ready to come out on its own. Dr. Khan can help you decide if a baby root canal is right for your child.

Sports Mouthguards

Sports mouthguards prevent dental injuries when worn during contact sports or other potentially dangerous activities. A custom-fit mouthguard made by Arch Dental Care can save your child’s teeth and prevent extensive dental treatment.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings offer a durable, more natural looking option for your child’s restorations. Made from composite resin, they are strong, durable, and perfect for smaller teeth. Dr. Khan can help you decide is a tooth-colored filling is right for your child.
