Early Dental Care for Infants and Young Children

When your child is seen at age one, the first visit can be pleasant and positive, introducing you and your child to pediatric dental care. The focus of these early dental visits is on the developmental assessment of your child’s oral health. Caries (tooth decay) and developmental disturbances can usually be managed more effectively if they are intercepted early.

Preventative and Restorative Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Nitrous oxide can be very helpful in reducing the anxiety that children may experience during dental treatment. A mixture of two gases, nitrous oxide and oxygen, is delivered through a small breathing mask, helping the child relax, but without putting them to sleep. The gas is mild, easily tolerated, and is quickly eliminated from the body with normal breathing.

Outpatient General Anesthesia

Comprehensive dental care under general anesthesia can be a comfortable and efficient treatment option for young patients, very apprehensive patients, or patients requiring extensive dental treatment. Dr. Eaton has staff privileges at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) where he provides comprehensive dental care for children under general anesthesia. The anesthesia services are provided by board-certified physicians in CHOA’s Joint Commission accredited outpatient facilities.
