Delivering Your Child A Brighter Smile
We all know the dentist’s office isn’t always the most exciting place for children and even adults sometimes. At Pitcher Pediatric Dental in Pittsford, NY, you don’t need to worry about that anymore. We provide a comforting, relaxing, and non judgmental atmosphere for your child to receive the dental care they need.
Whether your child needs a comprehensive dental examination, routine cleaning, fluoride or sealant protection application, fillings, crowns, nitrous oxide (N2O or laughing gas), or sedation, we can handle it all and ensure they are at ease. Our hygienists specialize in pediatric dental care and are dual trained in N2O administration to relieve patients with heightened anxiety.

Regular Dental Cleanings
Since our office focuses on preventative dental care, we recommend dental cleanings every six months to avoid gum disease and decay. We have hygienists available throughout the day to ensure your wait time is minimal and your children receive optimum care during their cleaning.
We are known for our beautiful, long lasting, tooth-colored fillings as opposed to mercury-based filling. You can keep your child’s smile looking healthy and beautiful.
Digital x-rays use 80% less radiation than traditional radiography. With this method, you can feel safer about your child receiving X-rays while better detecting any problems beneath the surface and creating a more accurate treatment plan for your child.
We can help your child develop better brushing techniques, easier chewing, and more with dental sealants. A sealant is placed on the back molars and can help prevent food and bacteria from getting stuck in the tooth surface.
When your child develops a severe cavity, infection, or breaks in the tooth, an extraction may be necessary. We ensure your child will feel comfortable during the treatment and have a plan for maintaining the space for the adult tooth.
For some teeth with severe cavities, we have the option of white porcelain-like pediatric crowns as an alternative to stainless steel.
Nitrous Oxide (N2O or laughing gas)
A safe and effective resource to relieve anxiety and mild pain while remaining awake as the patient breathes through the nose. It is quickly removed with just a few breaths.
A mild sedation for the most anxious, pre-cooperative patient or a little patient with an extensive amount of decay to attempt to restore in as few visits as possible.
