FAQ's

  • Will treatment hurt?
    • Your child’s dental procedure might make them uncomfortable. It is often difficult for adults and children alike to open their mouths for extended periods of time, and some portions of the cleaning process might be difficult for a child to endure. The team at Pediatric Dentistry of Burke is trained to complete procedures using the utmost care, and thanks to modern medicine and technology, we are also able to use new techniques to create a more comfortable experience for our patients. In our office, we offer many amenities to our patients, including:
      • Topical anesthesia
      • Local anesthesia
      • Nitrous oxide
      With parental consent, advanced behavior guidance techniques might be employed to provide a child with most pleasant and anxiety-free experience possible.
  • Can you put my child to sleep for their dental care?
  • Should I use toothpaste with fluoride?
    • According to The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, using fluoridated toothpaste might prevent your child from getting cavities. The AAPD suggests the following standards for children:

      Children under the age of two should brush, or have their teeth brushed, using a smear of fluoridated toothpaste. Children ages two to five should use a pea-sized amount, and they should rinse their mouth after to remove excess toothpaste.
  • What words should I use to explain dentistry to young children?
    • If your child has never visited the dentist, the concept of a stranger using tools to clean their teeth might be scary. When speaking with your child, try to avoid using words associated with discomfort like pinch, shot, or pain.

      Dr. Treff and his team are trained to communicate with each child, and they will explain each portion of the check-up to your child in simple terms, which will help them to understand what is happening during their visit to the dentist.
  • What insurances do you accept?
    • To keep your child’s dental care affordable, we gladly accept most insurance plans., and we offer third-party financing with CareCredit.
  • Do you provide "white or "silver" fillings?
    • We use composite “white” fillings for small, simple cavities. If one of your child’s teeth has significant damage, a stainless steel crown might be used. As with all procedures, we will discuss all available options with your before placing any crown or filling.
