Services

Our Goal at Jeffersonville Pediatric Dentistry is to make every parent feel informed and knowledgeable about what we do in our practice to make your child’s smile shine bright. Below is a list of our services that we use to help you feel comfortable and prepared for your first visit or many visits to come at Jeffersonville Pediatric Dentistry.

All ceramic white crowns

If your child’s cavity is too large to restore with a tooth-colored filling, a crown may be recommended. Crowns help protect the baby teeth, providing structure for the tooth. Crowning a tooth also maintains the space, allowing the eventual permanent tooth to erupt properly. Jeffersonville Pediatric Dentistry also offers silver crowns for patients. If you are concerned about a silver crown, talk to Dr. Combs about the possibility of a tooth-colored crown!

Sedation Dentistry

We will always choose the most conservative treatment options available to your child, and we seek to use non-invasive procedures whenever possible. However, there are times when your child may need to be sedated to care for them properly. Ultimately, their safety and comfort are our utmost concern.

Many children experience anxiety and are nervous when coming to a dentist. That’s why we offer our sedation services so that your child can relax while we treat them with quality, gentle dental care. If you have any questions about what sedation options we offer, please feel free to contact us during our office hours.

Invisalign

The Invisalign system combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by our orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.
Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign aligners are right for you. After our team send precise treatment instructions, the Invisalign system uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually until the final alignment prescribed is attained. You will be smiling like you never have before!

Comprehensive Dentistry

At Jeffersonville Pediatric Dentistry parents are always allowed back with their children. We strive to do everything possible to help your child feel comfortable and safe, while also having a good time during the visit. 

Here at Jeffersonville Pediatric Dentistry, we utilize many different forms of non-traumatic techniques. We are also very big on preventative services and education in order to stop cavities before they start. We also offer in-office IV sedation / general anesthesia services for very young or fearful patients.

Laser frenectomy

A frenectomy is the release of the frenum to allow for added range of motion. This quick and straightforward procedure is the first step toward a healthier child.

In the past, most frenectomies were performed by a doctor using a scalpel under general anesthesia and left children with stitches. Infants were often denied this procedure due to the risks of babies undergoing anesthesia.

However, modern laser technology allows us to perform frenectomies in our office with no anesthesia. These treatments take just a few minutes, don’t require stitches, and leave patients with little to no bleeding or swelling.

Neapolitan therapy dog at Jefferson Pediatric Dentistry

Therapy dog

At Jeffersonville Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that a visit to the dentist can sometimes be daunting for our little patients. To make your child’s dental experience as comforting as possible, we’ve introduced Neapolitan to our team. Though he’s still in the midst of his training to become a certified therapy dog, his warm presence can be felt from my office where he currently stays.

Soon, Neapolitan will be ready to provide some extra cuddles and soothing vibes during dental treatments. In the meantime, don’t be surprised if you hear a friendly bark or catch a glimpse of this adorable fellow during your visit!

Just like the delightful mix of flavors in a Neapolitan ice cream, our Neapolitan brings a blend of joy, calm, and comfort to our clinic. We’re excited for the day he can officially share his therapeutic charm with all our young visitors. Until then, we hope just knowing he’s here brings a smile to your child’s face. 

Stay tuned! Soon, Neapolitan will be ready to make your child’s dental appointment a whole lot sweeter.
