Importance of finding the right pediatric dentistry in Manatee, FL

Children need to maintain their teeth from an early age. Healthy habits that form early will continue for the rest of their lives. When children understand the importance of taking care of oral health, it teaches them responsibility and good habits to maintain healthy smiles.

Pediatric dentists specialize in treating infants, toddlers, kids, and adolescents, usually up until adulthood. Pediatric dentists understand how important it is to form good habits early for healthy teeth to grow. They can also create a treatment plan if any concerns arise with your child’s oral health.

Pediatric Dentistry

When you bring your children to Children’s Dentistry of Manatee, we want them to feel optimistic about visiting the dentist. So we provide them with a fun experience that gives them something to look forward to when they come back. Our practice prides itself on putting your kids and their needs first.

The dentist will look over your child’s dental history and discuss their home hygiene and diet practices. Then, we will introduce your child to the office with a gentle, compassionate presentation. Next, the dentist will perform a cleaning, an exam, and possibly X-rays based on your child’s needs. We will also review dental milestones and what to expect during your child’s growth and development.

Prophylactic Treatment

We can offer preventative oral health care for your kid’s needs by providing a thorough cleaning of the mouth using special tools.

Gum and Cavity Check

The pediatric dentist will check for cavities and other symptoms of possible gum disease. Then, the dentist can put together a treatment plan for any existing issues and prevent further damage.


X-rays can give a better look at your child’s jaw structure and the growth of their mouth that the dentist cannot see with the naked eye.

Diet and Exercise

Diet and exercise are also important to your child’s oral health. The pediatric dentist will review your child’s diet and exercise practices to help their oral health.

Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry

We offer a range of restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments designed for children. Cosmetic dentistry can address aesthetic and oral health issues that your child may have. Some of the restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments we provide in our office include:

Teeth Whitening



Pulp Therapy


Space Maintainers

Veneers and Dental Bonding


At Children’s Dentistry of Manatee, we specialize in the early detection of possible orthodontic issues so that we can provide efficient and safe care of oral health. Phase one, or Interceptive orthodontics, ensures that your child’s teeth will grow straight. The goal of interceptive orthodontics is for your child to avoid braces in the future.

Depending on your child’s need, the dentist may recommend the following:

Arch Expansion

Palatal Expanders

Oral Appliances to better shape the jaw

Extractions of problematic baby teeth


Braces are not only corrective but can also provide preventative oral care for children and older patients. We provide braces to help straighten out crooked teeth and create an aesthetically pleasing smile. In addition, it is proven that children’s self-confidence can increase with the appropriate use of braces.

Sedation Dentistry

At Children’s Dentistry of Manatee, Dr. Morgan believes in providing every patient with safe, efficient care. However, for children and older patients with anxiety or phobias of the dentist, it can be difficult for the dentist to do their job.

We have several options for safe sedation for those who feel uneasy while visiting our practice. We offer nitrous oxide sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia sedation to comfort our patients. In addition, we will make sure your family is safe while under sedation.

Special Needs Dentistry

Finding a specialized dental office that can provide quality care for a child with special needs is essential. Dr. Morgan and our team provide therapeutic care and specialized treatment plans based on your child’s special healthcare and dental needs.

We make it a fun and relaxing experience no matter what type of disability your child has. You can be assured we will treat them with the best care possible.


While pediatric dental emergencies are relatively rare, they do sometimes occur. If an emergency does happen, step one is to stay calm and call our office at (941) 792-6272 immediately. We will schedule your child for an appointment as soon as possible and provide the pediatric dental care needed.
