Calming Dental Care for Kids

Your Home for Pediatric Dentistry

Every child deserves to have a healthy, functional smile from the start. At Bluegrass Dentistry, we welcome patients from infancy on for gentle and calming pediatric dentistry in Lexington, KY. Routinely seeing your child from an early age can help them grow and develop properly while minimizing issues like tooth decay, tongue-tie, or lip-tie that can affect their health now and as an adult. Children with healthy teeth can bite and chew foods easily, speak and enunciate clearly, and live comfortably without painful tooth problems. We offer pediatric dentistry services conveniently in our comprehensive dental practice and can group appointments for greater convenience when multiple family members need routine care.

How Your Child Benefits from Dental Care

Our Top Pediatric Services

Preventive Care

Routine dental appointments with our children’s dentist, including oral examinations and risk assessments for cavities, teeth cleaning, fluoride treatment, x-rays, and education on proper oral hygiene, healthy habits, and diet and nutrition. Preventive care ensures that your child’s mouth is healthy and pain-free as they grow.
1

Frenectomy

Gentle, fast laser frenectomies for infants with tongue-tie and lip-tie. The frenulum, tissue that connects the tongue and upper lip to the mouth, can sometimes be too tight and cause restriction of movement. Releasing this tissue ensures your child develops and grows properly. We offer laser frenectomies for infants as young as one week old.
2

Mercury-Free Fillings

Tooth decay is one of the most common dental problems among children. We treat cavities with mercury-free fillings that blend in with their natural tooth color and do not introduce metal into their mouths. Composite fillings provide a similar level of strength and durability to keep baby teeth strong and healthy.
3

Dental Sealants

Molars, especially in children, are susceptible to decay due to their naturally grooved surface. Dental sealants provide an extra layer of protection to keep bacteria out of these grooves and minimize the risk for cavity development.
4

Orthodontics

Pediatric dental visits include evaluating the growth and development of your child’s teeth and jawbone. We provide early detection of issues related to crooked teeth and an improper bite and offer orthodontics to minimize the complexity of adult treatment.
