Beyond the Smile: Little Penguin's Whole-Body Approach to Pediatric Dentistry

title-deco - Little Penguin Pediatric Dentistry | Prosper, TX

While your child’s smile is our key focus, that doesn’t mean that we leave other aspects of their health at the wayside. In fact, Dr. Peng has an in-depth understanding of how certain issues, like sleep-breathing disorders, are directly related to oral development and health. That’s why she takes extra time to conduct in-depth evaluations and treatment recommendations using modern, conservative techniques and technology. You can learn more about our whole child approach to pediatric dentistry below, and we invite you to call our office to schedule your child’s visit today!

Dr. Peng has specialized knowledge and experience in treating issues related to oral development as a pediatric dentist, which is why she conducts airway-focused evaluations when the need arises. This involves examining your child’s airway, tonsils, craniofacial growth and anatomy, bite, and asking about sleeping and breathing patterns. Following this examination, Dr. Peng will help assess your child’s symptoms and determine their risk for sleep-breathing disorders. If necessary, we can also refer you to an appropriate specialist for treatment.

The pressure of being a parent can feel immense, and we want you to know that our team has your back. In cases where you feel it could be beneficial, we can offer nutrition counseling. This process involves Dr. Peng looking at your child’s diet to consider whether it may be contributing to an increased risk of oral health problems.

Conservative & Minimally Invasive Techniques

We understand that these early years of visiting the dentist can make or break your child’s willingness and enthusiasm to keep coming, which is why we’re intentional about making every appointment as enjoyable as possible. One of the ways in which we put this practice into action is by utilizing conservative and minimally invasive techniques, like silver diamine fluoride to arrest cavities and Hall Crowns to seal cavities. These require less time in the treatment chair, no local anesthetic, and are pain-free.

Digital Radiography (X-Rays)

By implementing modern technology into our practice, like our portable digital X-ray imaging system, we’re able to minimize your child’s exposure to radiation and help you trust that they’re completely safe in our care. Digital X-rays offer a higher-quality image that allows us to make precise diagnoses, take less time to capture and display, and produce up to 80 percent less radiation than their traditional film counterparts. We also prescribe X-rays based on the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines and the “As Low As Reasonably Achievable” (ALARA) principle meaning we do not ever recommend unnecessary X-rays.
