We use the most advanced Xray system using digital sensors. This reduces exposure to radiation by almost 50% compared to regular Xrays. The Xray images are available within seconds eliminating waiting time.

State of the art Sterilization

Equipments with sterilization procedures compliant with OSHA regulations.
Cosmetic Dentistry for children and teens.
Children who have damaged, discolored or missing front teeth sometimes have problems with self-esteem that can be improved with cosmetic dentistry. Many parents and some dentists feel that because these are only “baby teeth,” they don't need to be treated especially if the child is not in pain. However self-image is very important for the child. Many a times children don’t smile because of the way their front teeth appears. Some even cover their mouth with their hands. Cosmetic dentistry improves the child’s self esteem and enhances their smile. Cosmetic dentistry could be in the form of tooth colored fillings, tooth colored anterior and posterior crowns.
Restorations
Silver fillings, pulpotomies (commonly called as baby root canal therapy).
Preventive treatment .
Fluoride applications and oral prophylaxis with regular oral hygiene instructions.
Sealant Therapy.
The chewing surfaces of molars are easily susceptible to cavities in children. Made of clear or shaded plastic, sealants protect these grooved and pitted surfaces of the molars to prevent tooth decay.
Space Maintenance.
Sometimes baby teeth have to be extracted way before their time of exfoliation due to extensive cavities that cannot be restored. Such cases need a space maintainer that keeps the space intact for permanent teeth to erupt at the appropriate time.
Habit Breaking Appliances
Some prolonged habits like mouth breathing, thumb sucking, lip biting, tongue thrusting etc cause abnormal pressure on teeth and palate. Such cases can be treated by habit breaking fixed appliances that help children overcome the habit.
Mouth Guards
When a child begins to participate in recreational activities and organized sports, injuries can occur. A properly fitted mouth guard, or mouth protector, is an important piece of athletic gear that can help protect your child’s smile, and should be used during any activity that could result in a blow to the face or mouth.
Mouth guards help prevent broken teeth, and injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw. A properly fitted mouth guard will stay in place while your child is wearing it, making it easy for them to talk and breathe.

Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide
Some children are given nitrous oxide/oxygen, or better known as happy air or relaxing air, to relax them during dental treatment. Nitrous oxide/oxygen is a blend of two gases, oxygen and nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide/oxygen is given through a small breathing mask which is placed over the child’s nose, allowing them to relax, but without putting them to sleep. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recognizes this technique as a very safe, effective technique to use for treating children’s dental needs. While inhaling nitrous oxide/oxygen, your child remains fully conscious and keeps all natural reflexes.

IV Sedation

Is recommended for apprehensive children, very young children, and children with special needs that would not work well under chair side. The dentist performs the dental treatment in our office with the child anesthetized under IV sedation, which is administered and monitored by an anesthesiologist.


Hospital Sedation Dentistry

Dr.Sucheta has privileges to Sutter Roseville and Sutter Fairfield hospitals to perform dental procedures under general anesthesia or IV sedation for children with special needs,very young children with Early Childhood Caries or children with very high dental anxiety.

Emergency treatment  
We can help you in cases of emergency and will try and accommodate you in regular office hours. In case of an emergency after office hours, we have an emergency service that will help you.

What kind of situation is an emergency?

  • If your child bumps their teeth, cracks a tooth, or knocks it out, call us.
  • If your child is up at night with a toothache; their face is swelling or running a fever, call us.
  • If your child loses a tooth from an injury, try to remain calm. Call our office immediately and we will help you to determine if it is a primary or a permanent tooth.
  • Sometimes while at play a child bumps on his permanent tooth and knocks it off. Find the tooth and rinse it gently in cold water.  (Do not scrub it or clean it with soap – just use water hold the tooth with clean gauze or a wash cloth. Place the tooth in a clean container with milk, saliva or water. Get it to the office immediately. (Call the emergency number if it’s after hours.)  The faster you act, the better your chances of saving the tooth.
  • If a baby tooth gets knocked off call us and apply cold ice packs to the area.
  • For a severe blow to the head or fracture of the jaw report to the local hospital immediately.
  • Minor fractures to the tooth can be taken care of by composite restorations. Moderate fractures of teeth may require a root canal therapy if need be or can be treated by giving esthetic crowns. Severe fractures often mean a traumatized tooth with low chances of recovery.
