“But Mom, I don’t want to go to the dentist!”

This is probably a common phrase in your household. And it’s understandable; many of the terrifying myths about dentists are learned by children at a young age. But at Lansdowne Dental Care in Ashburn, we are ready to change your child’s mind and give them the children’s dentistry service they deserve.

Our pediatric dentist service is headed by one of the top women in dentistry, Dr. Tracey Nguyen. Her mission is to provide the most compassionate and state-of-the-art care possible. No matter the age of your child, it’s important to schedule them for consistent cleanings and checkup visits.

Whether your child simply needs to be checked for cavities, or if there are more serious issues that need to be addressed, our Lansdowne Dental Care professionals can provide everything your family needs to feel secure and healthy.

Our Children’s Dentistry Services

We provide a full range of children’s dentistry services to help your little ones take charge of their oral health from an early age. It is recommended that you start taking your children to see the dentist as early as age 6 or 7, as that is when their permanent and secondary teeth start to grow in.

However, if you have an infant with teeth development issues, or if you notice a variety of hazardous symptoms, you can take your child in at an even earlier age to be seen by one of our professionals. If you ever have questions about whether or not a certain developmental sign should be seen as an issue, you can contact our Ashburn office right away.

Dr. Tracey Nguyen insists on providing the best care possible for your child, no matter their age or symptoms. Each mouth develops differently, and it can be a scary time for your child. If you want to start taking your child to a children’s dentist, you can view a list of the pediatric dentistry services we provide:

  • Oral health exams for children of all ages, from infancy to late teenage years
  • Habit counseling, helping your child to stop sucking on their thumbs and performing other dentally unhealthy habits
  • Diagnosis and treatment for teeth straightening (orthodontic braces or Invisalign)
  • Preventative dentistry appointments, which include cleaning, X-Rays, diet counseling, and screening for oral cancer
  • Composite fillings for cavities
  • Emergency dental care for broken, missing, or chipped teeth
  • Diagnosis of oral-health related conditions such as heart disease, asthma, diabetes, and ADHD

At Lansdowne Dental Care, we understand that your child may not always be able to communicate when he or she is in pain. It can sometimes be difficult for them to tell that they are experiencing oral health issues. It’s vital to bring your young loved one in for an assessment to make sure they are not suffering silently.

There are a number of specialized treatments that we offer for children as well. If your child has trouble breathing, or exhibits many irritable or abnormal symptoms while sleeping, they may be suffering from an airway issue. Our Ashburn dentists are equipped to thoroughly assess and treat serious breathing problems relating to oral health.

Children’s Airway Issues and Sleep Apnea

Do you have a history of sleep apnea in your family? Does your child have trouble breathing, or perhaps they have a lot of allergies?

There are many symptoms that can lead to a diagnosis of a breathing issue. At Lansdowne Dental Care, we have designed specialized testing tools and assessment pages for you to best determine the medical needs of your child.

We are equipped to diagnose children with common airway health issues, including asthma and sleep apnea. If your child displays one or more of the following symptoms on a consistent basis, you should come and see us right away:

  • Upper lip is turned up or extremely short
  • Smile is “gummy” rather than “toothy”
  • Tiny nostrils
  • Trouble breathing
  • Excessive allergies
  • Asthma or breathing issues
  • ADHD or hyperactivity
  • Loud or constant snoring
  • Large tonsils
  • Open bite or cross bite
  • Long or narrow face and neck

If you can’t decide whether your child’s symptoms are cause for concern or not, Dr. Tracey Nguyen and her friendly team of professionals have designed this pediatric sleep questionnaire for you and your family to fill out. This can help determine whether or not your child is qualified for serious airway treatment.

Treatments for Airway Issues

Lansdowne Dental Care provides several treatment options for children of all ages who are diagnosed with a breathing or airway issue. There are several reasons why these medical conditions can occur, and are often classified as dental concerns due to the nature and proximity of the airways and the mouth, throat, jaws, and teeth.

Dr. Tracey Nguyen has studied at the Kois Graduate Center to expand her knowledge and develop the most effective and efficient treatments possible for children’s airway issues. Currently, there are two top recommendations for a child who is diagnosed with a breathing problem:

  • The Myobrace, an official form of myofunctional therapy that acts as an alternative to braces. This is a good treatment plan for young children whose teeth are still in development.
  • Invisalign, a top-rated form of orthodontics that will straighten teeth and align the jaw. This can help to open the airways and prevent further medical issues from occurring in adulthood.It’s important to assess the needs of your child as soon as possible. You can invest in our comprehensive pediatric services to ensure that their needs are met. By treating potential oral health issues, you are seeking to protect your child from suffering major damages in the future.
