It includes specialized treatment for infants and children. Some of the pediatric dental services provided include oral hygiene, orthodontic care, space maintainers, fissure sealants, etc. Great dental care during childhood sets a foundation for a lifetime of oral health.

Pediatric Orthodontics: This is a branch of pediatric dentistry that involves dealing with teeth alignment problems for children. We provide braces and Invisalign for children during the transitional phase between the milk teeth and permanent teeth.

Preventative Pediatric Care: This procedure aims at keeping your child’s teeth free from gum disease, tooth decay, and plaque buildup. It mainly involves a comprehensive oral examination and a professional gum cleaning done by our pediatric dentists.

Restorative Pediatric Care: This branch of pediatric care involves the repair or replacement of damaged teeth to restore their health. Some of the restorative procedures include teeth extraction, space maintainers, dental crowns, pulpotomy, and more.

Comprehensive Oral Examinations: We provide pediatric dental checkups to ensure your child’s teeth are growing properly. This also helps us to clean their teeth to reduce the chances of tooth decay and infection or gum disease.

Pediatric Cosmetic Care: Cosmetic dental care for children is minimally invasive and helps improve their smiles and restore the integrity of their teeth. Some of the cosmetic procedures include dental bonding, veneers, teeth whitening, dental flipper, and more.

Habit Breaking Appliances: It is common for children to suck their thumbs at a young age and some may need help to break the habit. We provide appliances to break thumb sucking habits, help align and grow jaws, hold space for adult teeth, and correct crossbites.

Kid-Friendly Dentist for your Child

A child needs a gentle, friendly, and professional dentist. Many kids fear going to the dentist. A pediatric dentist plays an important role in detecting oral problems early. If your child is not comfortable with the dentist, your child will make the dental assessment and treatment more difficult.

Your child should have a dental diagnosis regularly which focuses on examining teeth and gums for potential conditions that could cause problems. Our kids’ dentist in Nairobi provides specialized care and a positive experience for your child from the moment they enter the clinic until the treatment is done.

We explain and recommend treatment plans at a consultation session tailored for you and your child. The meeting can occur during the first appointment. As an innovative pediatric dental clinic in Nairobi, our goal is to provide the best dental care and deliver the best outcome for your child’s treatment.
