Pediatric Service Overview

Dr. Yunki Cho believes a trip to the dentist should be fun, lighthearted, and not something to fear. The way your child is exposed to dentistry lays the groundwork for how they view dental care and dental visits for the rest of their lives.

Dr. Yunki Cho and his team love caring for our patients, and we work hard to make sure each child is spoken to gently, treated with respect, and cared for as if they were our own child. We use simple words to explain procedures to our patients and make sure each parent or guardian is aware of the process as well.


Infant Oral ExaMS

Following the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Yunki Cho suggests infants should come in for their first oral exam between the ages of six months to 1 year old.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays allow our Dr. Yunki Cho to get a view of your child’s teeth and jaws that he can’t see with their eyes while keeping radiation exposure to a minimum.

Fluoride

Regular fluoride treatments help reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities and can remineralize areas where decay is starting. Dr. Yunki Cho believes regular fluoride treatments are an important part of treatment for most children.

Frenectomies

During a frenectomy, Dr. Yunki Cho makes a small incision in the frenum or frenulum, allowing for greater movement of the lips.

Pediatric Sealants

Sealants help protect your child’s teeth from decay by filling in the grooved biting surfaces of your child’s teeth, making them easier to clean. Dr. Yunki Cho applies this light-cured material in minutes, and the procedure requires no anesthesia.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Tooth Extractions
