Pediatric Services Overview

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 his team loves 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.


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 in Indianapolis 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. Sweet Tooth Smiles in Richmond, TX recommends two cleanings a year to maintain optimal oral health.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays allow Dr. Khan to get a view of your child’s teeth and jaws that he can’t see with his 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. Sweet Tooth Smiles 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.

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.
