Exams & Check-Ups

Regular visits to the dentist are essential for your child’s oral development. During these routine check-ups, our friendly team will carefully assess the health of your child’s teeth, gums, and bite with non-intrusive techniques such as digital x-rays (how cool is that?).

Once the exam is complete, your specialist will share their findings and recommendations with you and your child. We feel it is helpful for both to always know what’s going on.


Our main goal is to help your child prevent cavities with a good oral hygiene routine. However, we have to face the reality that brushing and flossing alone is not enough when a cavity appears. Your child may need a dental filling to fix the problem.

At our practice, we use tooth-colored composite fillings. Our pediatric dental specialists…Learn more about our dentists in Terre Haute, IN… will perform this procedure by first numbing the area and then gently cleaning the affected tooth. Next, we’ll apply the filling material and shape it to fill the cavity and fit your child’s natural bite.

Once the procedure is complete, your child’s tooth will be fully restored, and together we’ll work to prevent further cavities from appearing!


An extraction may be necessary when a tooth is severely decayed, causing an infection, or simply needs to be removed to help with future orthodontic treatments. Whatever the reason for extraction, we’re ready to help.

We understand that this procedure may be worrisome. However, our fantastic team of experts avoids scary words such as pain, needle, or shot. Instead, we replace them with soothing terms that let your child know why it is crucial to remove the tooth.

If your child is extremely nervous, don’t worry! Our team is also highly trained in sedation dentistry…Visit our sedation page… to make the appointment as pleasant as possible.

As usual, the entire staff at Dentistry Just For Kids was wonderful! From the receptionist checking us in to the hygienist, they made us feel welcome and secure. My son feels comfortable and enjoys getting his teeth cleaned because they put him at ease. An absolutely fantastic experience!
