What Pediatric Dental Services Do We Provide at Topping Dental Group Elkhart?

Your child deserves the best dental care in Indiana, and we intend to provide it to them. But how do our services meet the most essential child’s dentistry needs? Let’s explore that, below:

Topping Dental Group First Visit 1

Routine Dental Examinations

It all starts with the first baby teeth your baby develops. As they grow and strengthen over time, we ensure routine dental examinations take place at regular intervals, or more frequently should we notice the need for corrective care. This way, we can identify problems early on and help your child develop over their formative childhood years, as well as after losing their first teeth ready for their adult set.

Age-Appropriate Cleanings

We can help remove plaque and tartar from your child’s dental environment which helps protect against cavities and gum diseases later on down the line. We also support a pathway of education such as showing them how to brush correctly, helping new parents learn what their child’s brushing regimen needs, and identifying any negative influences.

Cavity Fillings

A cavity can be damaging to the tooth bed and also cause pain or sensitivity. If a child requires cavity fillings we render prompt treatment by offering tooth-colored fillings to help restore the affected tooth back to its original function.


Orthodontic Inspections

As a child’s dental environment develops, sometimes tooth alignment may require light correction. We make certain that orthodontic assessments are made early so we can implement referrals as and when they need to be made. This way, your child can undergo restorative and corrective work, perhaps through the use of a retainer, to ensure long-term dental health.

Best part? We offer full orthodontic work here at our office! If your child does need braces, we are trained and licensed to take care of them. 



Emergency Care

Unfortunately, it’s possible for children to experience dental emergencies, and in those situations proactive and comforting treatment is exactly what they need. We’re proud to curate an open door policy to help with emergency care, be that through dental injury care, treatment of diseases, or helping to address conditions.


Continual Support

If there’s one thing parents know, it’s that children grow up almost more quickly than we’re ready for. But it’s not just their little personalities that mature, it’s their bodies that develop and will require careful medical attention to make certain that development proceeds in the right way. As we can expect milk teeth to fall out as they grow, and for their adult set to come in, dentists are uniquely aware of how quickly children can change. As such, we seek to offer our support to your child over the entire span of their childhood, using their records to curate the best treatment picture.

While this is far from an exhaustive list of every service offered through our pediatric plan, it should give you an idea of the full-scale and supportive package we offer your children. This way, their most important developmental years will be supported by the outstanding dental care they deserve.

Topping Dental Group Elkhart Reviews


Everyone at Topping Dental Group is lovely, professional and top notch. Kathy does a fantastic job of cleaning my teeth, so thoroughly and it’s always great to chat with her.


Dr. Swihart & the whole staff at Topping are excellent. I have been going to Dr. Swihart for a few years and the care and professionalism of everyone in the office is always above and beyond. I called in with a chipped tooth and was scheduled the same day. They worked me in without hesitation and corrected the issue. I’d highly recommend this office to anyone in need of a family dentist!


Staff is always friendly. Have not had a bad experience so far and have been going to them for over 10 years for my dental needs.


Have been a patient for 2 years now. Very pleased with Doctor Swihart and his staff.


By far the best dentist I have been to, very clean and welcoming!


Very professional and friendly!


Excellent practice. Ashley does a great job. Only concern was I thought $197. was a bit high for cleaning and measurement only when I didn’t see the dentist.


Kathy is a delightful, competent, kind dental professional . Pleased with all the services I have had from cleanings to crowns. Work is painless. Thank you for your service.


Always clean, professional & concerned. I also appreciate the K-LOVE station, in the waiting room!


You will find friendly staff here that will treat you like family!

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Cleaning

How often should I have a schedule dental cleaning?

The ADA recommends that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a routine dental cleaning. This is a great practice to have because we want to proactively spot potential problems and take care of the issue before it becomes a problem that requires a lot of intervention.

If you spot a cavity, can I have it taken care of during my dental cleaning visit?

We do not treat cavities on the same day as your cleaning appointment. Before leaving the office, you are able to schedule an appointment to take care of the filling. To learn more about fillings, click the button below.

Do you take x-rays?

Yes, we take x-rays of your mouth as needed to make sure that there are no issues happening below the surface of your teeth. 

How long do dental cleaning appointments last?

We pride ourselves on having an efficient, yet quick appointment. Most appointments can be finished in 30 minutes, but we recommend that you plan for 60 minutes in case we find any problems that need to be addressed.

Is it safe to have a dental cleaning appointment if I’m pregnant?

Absolutely! In fact, we recommend that you have a dentist appointment while pregnant and soon after giving birth. The mouth tells us a lot about your overall health and is the first step in having a healthy lifestyle.

How long do I have to wait to eat or drink after receiving fluoride treatment?

Do not eat or drink for 30 minutes after your appointment, and avoid coffee, tea, and dark liquids for 6 hours. The longer you can go without eating or drinking, the better your fluoride treatment will work on your teeth. After 6 hours, you don’t need to avoid any food or drinks.

Our Most Popular Primary Dental Services


Dental Cleaning

A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dentist or dental hygienist. Most dental cleanings take only between 25 and 30 minutes.

wisdom teeth

Wisdom Tooth Removal

A wisdom tooth extraction is a relatively routine procedure. The dentist will numb the area in your mouth with local anesthesia or use IV sedation so you are asleep during the procedure.


Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged, or to take the place of missing teeth.



A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. A filling also helps prevent further decay by closing off any cracks or spaces where bacteria can enter.


TMJ Treatments

TMJ stands for temporal-mandibular joint. Temporal, as in temple area of skull; mandibular as in mandible, or lower jaw; joint as in it’s where the head and jaw meet.
Problems in this joint may be caused by a misalignment of the teeth, trauma, or excess muscle tension.


Tooth Extractions

Good oral hygiene should always be practiced since the loss of a single tooth can have major impact upon your oral health and appearance. Although dentists will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, there are still some occasions when a tooth may need to be extracted.
