Excellent service and very professional. What truly counts for me is the way they treat people, the cleanliness of the dental office and the professional presentation of the staff and especially the doctor. I feel good indeed very good about recommending the doctor, as a matter of fact I have recommended the doctor to many of my friends. It is always a pleasure and the best part is that they adjust their hours to accommodate the patient, or at least in my personal case that is why I have kept the same dental office and the same doctor for so many years.

Children have very specific needs when it comes to their dental care. Whether they are an infant with their first baby teeth erupting through, or a child whose adult teeth need special attention for alignment, children have different needs than adults. Dr. Pasquier, a family dentist at Miami Modern Dental, is able to help patients of all ages, from infants to elderly.

An infant experiencing their first teeth may be uncomfortable, unhappy, and may experience trouble sleeping or feeling relaxed because of this dental transition. It is not unusual for infants to act not quite "themselves" as they experience their baby teeth coming in. Over-the-counter topical creams can help ease toothache pain associated with erupting teeth, as well as teething toys that can be placed in the fridge or freezer to provide cooling relief.

Older children that complain of a toothache may require additional care. If an older child is experiencing tooth pain, inspect the area and ask the child to explain the pain as best they can. If they are old enough, have them rinse their mouth with a warm salt water solution. Provide an appropriate dose of acetaminophen to help with the pain, and if swelling is present, use a cold compress on the face for relief. Because this pain may be associated with tooth decay or an infection, it is important that you call Dr. Pasquier as soon as possible to get your child in for a thorough evaluation. If Dr. Pasquier notices tooth decay, fillings may be needed to address the sensitivity. If an infection has occurred, antibiotics and root canal therapy may be required, but this will be considered and discussed at the consultation appointment.

If you are looking for a family dentist in Miami, consider Dr. Pasquier of Miami Modern Dental. With his knowledge and expertise, he can service your entire family and offer generations of beautiful smiles!
