Your child’s smile is precious. Dr. Paulson is an experienced pediatric dentist who loves giving kids a firm foundation for a lifetime of super smiles. As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Paulson understands the dental needs of children and provides comprehensive care for strong, healthy smiles. Since 1985, Dr. Paulson and his team of dental assistants have given Casper and Gillette area families full-service pediatric dental care that’s enjoyable for children and convenient for parents.
Pediatric dentistry is one of only a few dental specialties. Why do kids need specialized dental care? Because their mouths are still growing and developing, and they need treatments that are tailored to their delicate smiles and unique health needs. Children’s dental care is especially concerned with cavity prevention, for instance.
Our children’s dentist recommends that patients visit our office every six months for checkups. A typical checkup appointment includes necessary X-rays, cleaning, and fluoride application, and dental sealants may be recommended to prevent cavities. If your child has a tooth that is compromised by decay or injury, a filling or crown can restore health, function, and appearance. Kids who suck their thumbs or use a pacifier may experience dental problems. Our pediatric dentist will discuss the situation and suggest gentle behavior management techniques to help your child overcome this habit to promote proper dental development.
At Casper Children’s Dental, we know that providing your child with a range of dental services is essential to optimal results, great health, and proper development. Beyond general pediatric dentistry and cavity prevention, we offer orthodontics, too! We also provide various specialized solutions to certain problems, such as teeth grinding. When kids need treatment for an infection or injury to the inside of the tooth, we can provide pulpotomies (root canal therapy for baby teeth), and we’ll protect damaged teeth with stainless steel crowns if needed. As you can see, kids often need some of the same treatments that adults might need, but they need them tailored to their tiny smiles.
