Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings
An essential for both children and adults, Lancaster Pediatric Dentistry offers regular dental checkups and cleanings that will ensure that you have life-long dental health. It’s important that you encourage your children to visit the dentist often so that they continue to do so when they grow up themselves. The regular checkups at Lancaster Pediatric Dentistry will teach both you and your children how to brush properly and take care of your teeth.
If you have recently had a child, it is recommended by the in-house dentist, Dr Draney that you book an appointment for both them and yourself every six months. It is also recommended that you book an appointment for your baby within the first year of so that the condition of their teeth can be examined. Want to find out more? Contact the team today via (740) 475-0700.
The purpose of dental sealants is to prevent decay from growing in between the grooves of molars. Lancaster Pediatric Dentistry offers the service of applying the thin coating onto teeth (using a specially-designed UV light to seal it).
Lancaster Pediatric Dentistry offers fluoride treatments which aims at reducing the amount of tooth decay that occurs over your lifetime. An effective form of treatment, this along with proper dental care ensures that your dental health remains at a good level.
Fillings, Crowns and Root Canal Treatments
It’s our aim to ensure that your teeth are being protected from potential issues. If you have a cavity that needs repairing, Lancaster Pediatric Dentistry will fill it in with a simple filling. This will get rid of the damaged tissue (numbing it beforehand) and solve the issue as quickly as possible.
If you require a crown to be fitted, Dr Draney will fit the cap over the damaged tooth. This keeps the tooth protected, whilst giving it a natural look. An impression of your tooth will be taken and the cap will be designed to match the rest of your teeth.
A root canal might seem like a daunting procedure, but at Lancaster Pediatric Dentistry, we will ensure that you feel comfortable and that the procedure is conducted safely and efficiently.

A standard procedure, a cavity treatment involves removing decay within the tooth. A filling is then used to protect the tooth and keep it strong. There are a variety of fillings to choose from, from silver-colored to composite resin. To make sure that both you and your child decrease the chance of getting a cavity, we will recommend to you the best brushes available.
What is Gingivitis? Put simply, it's a periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) which causes inflammation. It is caused by plaque building up in your gums, which can occur due to infrequently brushing your teeth or visiting the dentist. If not treated quickly or in the correct manner it can result in strokes, diabetes and other conditions. If you have noticed inflammation and think that you have the disease, contact Lancaster Pediatric Dentistry for gingivitis treatment.
Custom Athletic Mouthguards
Having a mouthguard that has been made custom for you can ensure that you remain safe when you are participating in sports. If it isn’t fitted to your teeth, it can result in you having a concussion if you have collided heads with another player. Protecting your teeth and your jaw, it will absorb the shock. If you are an athlete and want to find out more, call today and book an appointment. Lancaster Pediatric Dentistry will discuss with you the many benefits, how they can help you and will take you through the simple process of creating your own custom athletic mouthguard.
