Holistic Services: What Makes Kaelin Pediatric Dentistry Different
This practice stands out from the pack, even among children’s dentists, because of its commitment to holistic pediatric dentistry. What does holistic dentistry mean? Holistic dentists promote a family’s natural oral wellness with the best organic products and a whole-body approach to dental health.
In addition to instilling good lifelong oral care habits, Dr. Kaelin’s holistic pediatric dentistry team evaluates environmental effects that could affect a child’s dental health, such as nutrition and exercise. They use digital radiography, with 80% to 90% less radiation exposure than traditional X-rays, to detect problems early.
For young athletes, holistic pediatric dentists can create custom mouthguards to protect their teeth while playing contact sports. With a properly fitted mouthguard, children and youth can avoid broken teeth or cuts to their lips or tongue.
The practice also offers mouthguards to wear at night that can prevent teeth grinding or clenching. Kaelin Pediatric Dentistry fabricates dual-laminated guards in its office and lets each child customize them with designs, colors, or even stickers.
Icon No-Drill Fillings
With Icon fillings, Dr. Kaelin can fill a child’s cavities without using a drill. This method is complete in one visit and is less painful than traditional treatments. After Dr. Kaelin treats the tooth’s surface with a gel and dries it, she uses the Icon formula to penetrate the cavity and seal the tooth to preserve it.
Unlike standard drilling, this procedure focuses only on the tooth’s unhealthy parts, resulting in a more robust tooth structure and better infection resistance.
Kaelin Pediatric Dentistry’s no-drill fillings are pain-free and only take around 30 minutes, with visible results instantly. The dentist can treat a child’s cavities and even white spots left behind after removing braces—without exposing the children to any loud or scary equipment.
