Has your child been to the dentist? Do they often eat candy or a variety of foods with different textures? Although this may be the last thing your child wants to hear, it’s important to start taking them to the pediatric dentist on a consistent basis. Here at Lansdowne Dental Care, our Lansdowne children’s dentist can provide a comfortable and positive environment for your little one.

It’s never an easy thing to take your child to the dentist, but the benefits of keeping up with their oral health can prevent them from suffering some major issues in the future. Our team can give your child a fun, educational, and medically beneficial visit.

Our Children’s Dentistry Services

Dr. Tracey Nguyen and her team of caring professionals work to provide a variety of high-tech and state-of-the-art pediatric dentistry services. Whether your child is simply visiting for an annual cleaning routine, or they have individual issues which need to be assessed, our team has the tools and equipment necessary to serve each and every patient.

Did you know that you can start taking your child to the dentist as early as infancy? When their baby teeth start to form, it’s important to keep a close eye on the nature of their growth. If anything looks out of the ordinary, you should come and see us right away. Monitor their eating and chewing habits, and look for any signs of pain. This is a crucial development time for your child’s oral health.

It is recommended by professionals in the industry that your child will start requiring regular visits to the office as early as 6 or 7 years old. This is when their early teeth start becoming replaced by permanent teeth. If any problems should arise, it’s best to nip them in the bud before they can grow into serious issues in adulthood.

If you are looking for a comprehensive exam, our Leesburg office can perform the following general and specialized pediatric dentistry treatments:

  • Oral health exams from infancy to adulthood
  • Diagnosis of dental health conditions, such as a heart defect or asthma
  • Preventative dentistry, such as tooth cleanings and fluoride
  • Composite fillings for cavities
  • Diagnosis and treatment for tooth alignment correction (braces or retainers)
  • Emergency care for dental-related injuries, such as chipped or broken teeth

If your child is showing symptoms of tooth pain, or if their teeth are not formed correctly, they may be in need of pediatric dentistry services right away.

Our talented Leesburg professionals offer a variety of airway-related children’s services as well. Certain oral health issues can cause trouble breathing, especially during sleep. If you believe that your child may be suffering from sleep apnea or asthma, we can help improve your child’s health in those areas as well.

Children’s Airway Health

Sleep apnea is a serious condition that can affect the way your child breathes at night. We have experienced a wide variety of children with breathing issues caused by oral health, and we want to help correct the issue as quickly as possible.

Dr. Nancy Nguyen has created an airway health exam that we can perform on your child if you suspect that he or she is suffering from sleep-related breathing problems. There are a variety of factors that contribute to airway issues, including:

  • Family history of sleep apnea
  • Weight issues
  • Developmental disorders around the airways
  • Improper oral health in the jaw or throat areas

Furthermore, there are a number of symptoms that can be a sure fire sign of sleep apnea or other airway issues. Our dentists in Leesburg are trained and qualified to be able to recognize these symptoms on a medical level, and can then prescribe treatment based on their findings.

Below is a list that includes a multitude of symptoms that may occur if your child has airway issues. If any of these symptoms match with your child’s behavior, it is important to contact us right away:

  • Bed wetting
  • Excessive snoring
  • Bad allergies
  • Asthma or breathing issues
  • ADHD
  • A “gummy” smile
  • The upper lip is turned upwards
  • Face is unusually long and narrow
  • Underdeveloped nostrils
  • Lopsided tongue

Treatments for Airway Issues in Your Child
If your child is indeed suffering from airway issues, this problem can be assessed and treated right away by our talented team.

Dr. Tracey Nguyen will recommend either a Myobrace, which is a flexible brace for young children, or Invisalign, which is a more traditional yet highly effective orthodontic treatment.

When these symptoms are spotted early enough in childhood, we can provide the tools and resources available to prevent the symptoms from spreading further. That way, your child will be able to grow and develop in a natural way, without having to suffer from serious oral health problems.

To help you decide whether or not your child has any airway concerns, we’ve designed a pediatric sleep questionnaire that you and your child can fill out together. Simply fill out the form, submit it to us, and contact us for an appointment. That way, we can use the proper tools and equipment available to assess the needs of your child.
