Pediatric oral surgeon Dr. Adriana Agachi and her specially trained team are delighted to welcome you to our fun, modern office designed exclusively for your children. We’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure that kids associate positive memories and enjoyable experiences with dentistry and dental care. You’ll find our office to be an environment full of bright fun colors, with movies, virtual aquariums, virtual reality headsets, games, and presents. And for you parents, we put to work the latest and most advanced techniques and technology, along with a team specially trained in pediatric odontology, in order to provide your children with the best care that dentistry has to offer.
Our goal is to see bright, healthy smiles that illuminate your children's faces! To get there, we employ a philosophy of prevention and a wide range of conservative approaches to keep your children's oral hygiene exemplary from the very start.
Effective treatment requires an atmosphere that promotes confidence. That’s why pediatric oral surgeon Dr. Adriana Agachi, and her team keep you informed and employ the latest technology and treatments to provide you the absolute best.
To provide your children with the very best, Dr. Agachi has undergone an extensive list of training programs: managing children’s fear of the dentist, specialized techniques ranging from medical hypnosis to light anesthesia for kids [such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and osteocentral anesthesia], and specialized treatments ranging from the natural and conservative to laser treatments. She is also a strong practitioner of interceptive orthodontics, which focuses on education and behavior before reaching the age when orthodontic treatments can become necessary. And in addition, she also performs laser frenectomies.
Biannual checkups and dental cleanings set children up to receive proper dental care and treatments adapted to their specific needs.
What matters to us is that your child keeps their smile throughout their entire visit to our pediatric office!
Positivity is our secret weapon! Medical hypnosis is very effective for making dental visits a pleasant and positive experience for kids.
We use osteocentral anesthesia, which is less invasive for children because it does not numb the mucosae: your child therefore does not lose feeling in their lips, cheeks, or tongue, there is no risk of accidentally biting oneself.
Nitrous oxide is a gaseous mixture that’s administered through a respirator in order to help relax your child. It increases physical and psychological comfort through relaxation, without putting your child to sleep.
Modern dentistry is actually in the process of progressing to more natural forms of treatment that, for example, take advantage of teeth and gum’s natural abilities to heal.
Lasers can now be used to treat sensitive teeth, cavities, and soft tissues. And because they also act as biostimulators, lasers also promote accelerated healing!
Certain habits, such as thumb sucking and mouth breathing, can be detrimental to your child’s jaw development and teeth alignment. We therefore emphasize interceptive orthodontics, which is a preventative measure that involves functional and behavior educational for children from 3–4 years of age.
Sometimes the lingual and labial frenulum can be too constrained, which can make breastfeeding very difficult or lead to functional and aesthetic problems in adolescents. During a frenectomy, Dr. Agachi uses a laser to create an incision in the frenulum. And thanks to modern lasers, frenectomies are now trauma-free: there is no blood, nor pain, and the treated region heals very rapidly.
Mountain biking, horseback riding, rollerblading, sports, and martial arts all involve situations where even light contact, in the wrong place, can cause significant damage to the teeth. Besides the pain, hassle, and aesthetic issues, treatment can be both expensive and uncomfortable. It’s therefore better to take preemptive measures and use a custom mouthguard.
Premature loss of a baby tooth can make it difficult for your little one to eat and talk, but it can also interfere with developing tooth alignment. Dr. Agachi offers customized dental space maintainers that serve as temporary measures to maintain the spacing left behind by the lost tooth.
