Looking for a trustworthy pediatric dentist in San Antonio, TX? Safari Children’s Dentistry & Braces would love to be your child’s new dental home! In this blog post, we discuss a few of our pediatric dental services.

Comprehensive Orthodontic Care

Not every dental practice offers orthodontic services, so if your child is interested in using traditional braces or clear aligner therapy to achieve a straighter smile, you’ll want to choose a pediatric dental practice that also offers orthodontics! Our team can assess your child’s teeth and bite to determine when they should begin wearing braces and how long their treatment will likely take.

Additionally, Safari Children’s Dentistry & Braces offers orthodontic treatment for adults, so anyone in your household is welcome to get braces through us!

Emergency Dental Care for Kids

Dental emergencies are not fun to think about, but it’s important to be prepared should your child need to see an emergency dentist right away. We recommend keeping things like gauze and ice packs on hand should your child break or dislodge a tooth, experience gum or mouth swelling, or have uncontrollable dental bleeding. Save our phone number in your contacts, as the first thing you will want to do in a dental emergency is give our office a call as soon as you can. Once you and your child arrive, our experienced emergency dentists can take over from there!

Safe & Effective Dental Sedation

Our office offers three choices for dental sedation, all of which are completely safe for children when administered by our specially-trained team. Of course, we will always go over your child’s treatment plan and any other related information with you to ensure that dental sedation will be a great option for them. Dental sedation helps keep patients calm, which can help them have more positive experiences in the dental chair. It can also help them sit still, which helps our team complete their treatment quickly and effectively.
