Treatments Available from the Pediatric Dentist Near You in Wilson, NC

Looking for a skilled pediatric dentist near you? Your child is in good hands at Wilson Pediatric Dentistry, where tiny teeth matter!

Our experienced team is dedicated to offering all our young patients careful, understanding, and effective care. From the time their first tooth emerges, we can help make sure your child’s teeth are developing correctly and prevent potential dental issues.

General Exams and Cleaning

Regular examinations, cleanings, and fluoride treatments help us ensure the healthy development of your child’s teeth, lower their risk of cavities, and develop a strong dental care plan to practice at home.

Sealant

Dental sealant is a thin plastic layer that creates a protective barrier around those hard-to-brush chewing surfaces on the back molars. This layer is applied with a brush. The process is easy and pain-free.

Cavity Treatment

Even with the best home care, cavities happen. 42% of children get a cavity between ages two and eleven. We provide gentle, understanding cavity treatment that stops the decay and restores the tooth’s look.

Disking

If there isn’t enough space for incoming permanent teeth, the teeth may become misaligned or more cavity-prone. Disking makes room by shaving off thin layers of the surrounding teeth.

Space Maintainers

If your child loses a baby tooth too early, the surrounding teeth may shift, causing a misalignment of the new incoming tooth. Space maintainers keep the space, so the new tooth has room to come in.

Dental Radiographs (also known as X-Rays)

Regular dental radiographs help your nearby dentist monitor the growth and development of permanent teeth and see dental issues, like cavities between the teeth that aren’t visible to the naked eye.

Early Orthodontic Treatment

Braces and other orthodontic treatments aren’t just for teenagers. Orthodontic care can help ensure the proper development of permanent teeth for children as young as six.

Emergency Care

An emergency can happen at any time. That’s why our team offers same-day dental appointments. If your child is experiencing a dental emergency, contact us immediately at (252) 291-4300.
