Services & Procedures
There’s a lot to consider when looking for a dentist for your child. You want to find a professional who is compassionate and attentive to your child’s needs. But you also know that it’s equally important to choose a practice that offers a variety of pediatric services and superior dental care.
At Children’s Dentistry of Northborough, you’ll find it all! We specialize in pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, and general dentistry. As pediatric dentists, we treat children of all ages with preventive treatments that protect and strengthen their teeth.
Infant Oral Health Care
Our primary focus is on prevention and educating parents and children about the importance of proper oral health habits. During your child’s first visit, Dr. Macdonald will perform a preliminary cavity risk assessment to identify potential problems and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
We strongly encourage routine cleanings and check-ups for both adults and children to prevent many problems from ever developing. Preventive care such as dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and custom mouth guards adds an extra layer of protection.
When it’s time for your child’s first cleaning, our trained hygienist will use a technique we call “tell-show-do.” This is a very effective method for giving kids a hands-on understanding of the proper way to brush and floss.
Your child’s comfort and well-being are our first priority. If a cavity develops and is diagnosed quickly, we can avoid injections with gentle WaterLase laser dentistry. Treatment is so quick and comfortable with lasers that we don’t usually need to use any anesthetic.
In some cases, it may be easier to treat your child when we can be sure that they will stay calm and relaxed. If your child needs multiple treatments or a more complex procedure, we offer various options for sedation.
Nitrous oxide is a mild type of sedation that is safe for children and appropriate for many in-office treatments. In certain circumstances, we can sedate your child using general anesthesia in a hospital setting or in our office under the supervision of an anesthesiologist.
Orthodontic Options for the Whole Family
We are pleased to offer a number of orthodontic options to fit the needs of your entire family. From early orthodontic evaluations for young children to braces for your teen, we can work with you to find the most effective treatment.
Are you interested in correcting minor misalignment problems for yourself or your teen? Invisalign clear braces can easily get your smile back in shape with a minimum of disruption to your life.
Adult Dental Treatments
As your child gets older, their dental needs change. We want your child to continue to receive the very best care, and our team has the training and education to provide appropriate treatments, regardless of their age.
We are also happy to offer comprehensive dentistry for adults, including crowns, root canal therapy, and tooth extraction. If your smile is falling short of your expectations, our take-home teeth whitening kits can brighten dramatically in just a couple weeks.
Our dental team loves working in the field of pediatric dentistry, and we value the trust you place in us to manage your child’s precious oral health. We’re committed to helping each child get the treatment they need to enjoy a lifetime of problem-free oral health.
Convenient, Quality Dental Care
The combination of services we offer is designed to maximize your family’s oral health in one convenient location. We are all committed to staying current with new dental treatments and technologies to provide your family with the best care available.
You can count on us to do everything we can to help your family achieve the best possible dental health. We are in-network with a number of insurance providers, but will file out-of-network claims as well. Our financing options include CareCredit and in-house financing for orthodontic treatment.
