Pediatric Dentistry in Cranston  

Neglecting baby teeth is a slippery slope towards long term problems with dental health. Primary teeth are essential for jaw bone development and teeth alignment and when learning to speak properly. Cranston Pediatric Dentistry specializes in caring for young patients and their developing smiles. 

Pediatric Dental Care in Cranston 

The road to stable adult oral hygiene starts with education and preventive measures during childhood. At Cranston Pediatric Dentistry, we gently provide personal and comprehensive pediatric dental care to set the stage for positive oral health now and in the future.

Laser-Assisted Frenectomies for Tongue-Tied Babies

Sometimes babies are born with an overgrown labial or lingual frenula. These small pieces of tissue connect the lip or tongue to the inner surface of the mouth. When these tissues are improperly sized, they prevent babies from breastfeeding properly. This can cause malnutrition if left untreated long-term.

At Cranston Pediatric Dentistry, we use a technologically advanced dental laser to painlessly sever the obstructive frenulum and allow your baby to eat comfortably. 

Flexibility and Understanding 

Dr. Athanasios Zavras and Dr. Sanaz Merchi take their time and are extremely patient in the way they treat their dental patients with special needs. Dental treatments can be broken up into multiple appointments as needed. The exams, x-rays, and cleaning would be divided up respective of the patient’s tolerance. On the other hand, if a patient requires I.V. or general anesthesia, we will design a treatment plan that will accomplish as much as possible at that time.

We want to be sure our patients receive the care that they need and will accommodate your difficult schedule.  At Cranston Pediatric Dentistry, we know you have enough to juggle without having to worry that you will not be able to get a convenient appointment or will be kept waiting. Our special needs dentists understand your unique circumstances and work hard to make each of your visits with us positive.
