Columbia Family Dentistry – Columbia, Tennessee
Comprehensive Care for the Younger Patient
Dr. Lauren Wilburn and her staff are trained to take care of toddlers, children, and younger teens with some of the latest pediatric dental care treatments. We offer several treatment options for younger patients, including sedation dentistry with laughing gas. We work hard to instill good oral health habits in our younger patients and prevent cavities, tooth decay, and fractured teeth from an early age.
Cavity Prevention & Treatment
Cavities are one of the most common oral health problems among younger patients and our pediatric dentistry in Columbia, TN, offers both preventive care and cavity treatment options. Cavities occur more readily when the child is not brushing or flossing their teeth properly, or if they snack and consume sugary foods and drinks regularly.
Dr. Wilburn may recommend laughing gas, otherwise known as nitrous oxide, as part of the treatment plan for younger patients who feel anxious or stressed when visiting the dentist. Laughing gas is a safe and effective method for sedating patients quickly and has no known side effects. We can provide more information about sedation dentistry to parents during the consultation.
We understand many toddlers may have very sensitive or even decayed teeth at some point. As leading pediatric dentistry in Columbia, TN, we offer restorative treatments for teeth that are broken, decayed, or already worn down. We also take the time to educate parents with very young children on how to reduce the risk of future fractures, tooth decay, and other oral health problems.
Thank you all for always being friendly, nice, and sweet to my boys. Everyone has smiling faces being treated with respect sets this mother’s heart at ease.
