From dental fillings to stainless steel and tooth-colored crowns, Sprout Pediatric Dentistry aims to revitalize decayed or damaged teeth. At our Monrovia, CA clinic, our comprehensive pediatric tooth crowns, extractions, pulpotomies, and dental care can help your child take back their overall oral health, so they can eat, laugh, and smile with confidence.
If your child has a cavity, it can compromise their oral health, and leave them with a lingering toothache. Tooth-colored dental fillings match the rest of your child's smile and are one of the fastest, simplest, and most affordable ways to treat cavities for kids. Cavities are a big deal, even if they're only present in the baby teeth. Cavities can cause pain and discomfort and may lead to infected teeth or even tooth loss. Baby teeth are just as important as your child’s adult teeth since they help form the paths that adult teeth follow when they emerge later in life. With a tooth-colored dental filling, your child’s tooth will stay healthy for years to come.
If your child is suffering from a toothache, it may be a sign of an infection, but a pediatric pulpotomy at our Monrovia, CA dental clinic may be able to relieve their discomfort in a single visit. Sometimes referred to as "baby root canals," pulpotomies can stop the infection in its tracks, restoring your little one's oral health and alleviating their pain and sensitivity, so they can get back smiling, laughing, and just being a kid.
When it comes to restoring your child's smile, tooth extractions are reserved as a last resort. We always strive to restore damaged teeth through other treatments whenever possible. But sometimes, an extraction is the best choice to get your child’s smile back on track. A pediatric tooth extraction at our Monrovia, CA dental office can eliminate your child’s discomfort, prevent further complications, and get them back to their normal, day-to-day routine. And with gentle techniques and sedation options, extractions can be quick and pain-free!
If you are struggling with breastfeeding, you are not alone! When a child has extra tissue in their frenulum it decreases mobility. Luckily, this is an easy fix. Frenectomies can be a great solution to help you and your newborn thrive. If your doctor recommends a frenectomy, it's because they deem it necessary to improve your baby's quality of life. And while any surgical procedure can sound scary, frenectomies are a simple and painless procedure that can solve a complex problem.
This method of sedation is ideal if your child is nervous about going to the dentist or if your child has trouble sitting still for their exams and cleanings. With our plumbed nitrous oxide system, we will pump a mixture of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oxygen through a nose mask, and your child will breathe through this mask whenever directed to do so.
As they breathe in the gas, they’ll begin to feel less nervous, and may experience a “floaty” or “dreamy” feeling. Children don’t fall asleep with laughing gas, but they’ll be very calm throughout their procedure.
A few of the best benefits of this sedation method is that side effects are minimal, and the effects of the sedation wear off within a few minutes of the nose mask being removed. Your child can go back to school or to their daily activities after their appointment.
When your child experiences a dental emergency, every moment counts. Providing them with timely care can accelerate their healing process and, most importantly, get them out of pain. Toothaches, broken or chipped teeth, and other issues can cause your child discomfort and interfere with their school performance, sports, and other activities. Unsure if your little one is experiencing a dental emergency? Don't hesitate to give us a call right away. Our team will help you figure out the severity of their issue, guide you through at-home care, and schedule an appointment as soon as possible, so your child can get back to being a kid.
We know that your child being happy and healthy is the most important, and when they get little bumps in the road, it can be scary! Toothaches and damaged teeth can be a huge burden for kids.

After you come into our dental clinic in Monrovia, CA for a pediatric tooth crown, your child will no longer have discomfort and will have a solution that will last for years to come.
