Happy Teeth Services
Tooth cleaning, polishing, and fluoride treatments all work together to make up your child’s prevention program. Other prevention options include sealants applied to protect your child from tooth decay, a mouth guard to prevent sports injuries to the teeth, and early diagnosis of orthodontic problems.
Infant Oral Health
“First visit by first birthday!” Your child should visit a dentist when the first tooth comes in, usually between 6 and 12 months of age. This relaxed visit will establish a dental home for your child. Early examination and preventive care will protect your child’s smile now and in the future.
X-rays allow dentists to diagnose and detect conditions that cannot be seen during a clinical examination. Our office uses digital X-rays and proper shielding to ensure each patient receives a minimal amount of radiation exposure.
If tooth decay is detected, we will recommend a restorative dentistry plan, which could include fillings, nerve treatments and/or crowns. Our office will discuss the many available materials and procedures that we use to provide the most evidence-based dental restorative care.
Dental sedation can help guide behavior during dental treatment. It is not intended to make a patient sleep, unconscious, or unresponsive. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available for the anxious or scared patient.
Emergency Dental Care
Quick action can save a tooth, prevent infection and reduce the need for extensive dental treatment. If your child chips a tooth, falls and loses a tooth or has a toothache, please call our office at 913-469-6555 so we can make arrangements to evaluate the situation.
Special Needs Children
Dr. Ganson and her team enjoy working with special needs patients. They understand that this particular population may need more time to adjust to a dental environment. The Happy Teeth team has obtained a unique skill set in order to help these patients feel at ease during exams, xrays, and treatment. Although not every patient will be able to be treated in a normal dental setting, it is the team’s objective to work with the patients and parents to start acclimating to this environment.
General anesthesia may be necessary for those with extensive dental needs who are extremely uncooperative, fearful or anxious, very young children who do not yet understand how to cope in a cooperative fashion, or those with special health care needs. Our office provides hospital dentistry at St. Joseph Hospital and Salina Regional Health Center. Dr. Ganson provides hospital dentistry at KC Children’s Surgery Center as well as in-office with a CRNA.
”Super friendly! Dr. Ganson is great with all our kids (ages 8, 6 & 3). Office space is bright, clean and perfect for little ones.Julie Storm Tan
