Kids Need Dental Care Too!

Kids Need Dental Care Too!

dallas children's dentistryAs soon as your child’s teeth arrive, care is necessary to protect them from issues like tooth decay. That is why we offer dental care for kids of all ages, from babies and toddlers to teens. Our Dallas, TX holistic dental office discusses the treatment options necessary to keep smiles of all ages healthy and beautiful!

An Exam and Cleaning for Kids

We want to see your kids for a checkup visit approximately every six months starting at around age two. These visits allow us to monitor the smile with advanced digital imaging, so we can diagnose issues like tooth decay in the early stages, addressing the issue before the risk of infection or premature tooth loss occurs. Our team can also talk to your kids about proper homecare habits to safeguard smiles in between office visits! We want them to know about their smiles and why routine care is so vital for healthy, bright smiles.

In the same appointment, our team will take time to thoroughly clean the teeth, which involves removing all plaque and tartar with an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual pick, a process that helps lower the risk of issues like bad breath, teeth stains, cavities, and even dental infections and gingivitis. The process only takes a few minutes to complete, and helps safeguard their smiles!

Dental Fillings

When a cavity forms in a child’s tooth, our team offers treatment. We will make sure the tooth isn’t about to fall out, if not, we want to place a filling to prevent the cavity from becoming an infection that impacts smile stability, and could otherwise increase the risk of complications like misalignment or the onset of infection. The filling we use is a metal-free and holistic option, one that contains no mercury and that will blend with the tooth for a more lifelike appearance. Placement only takes one visit, and helps save the smile.

Discussing Preventive Care

Our team also wants to help protect little smiles too. For example, our team will talk about proper brushing and flossing habits to help minimize plaque and tartar buildup until your child’s next dental cleaning visit. We can also discuss better meal options low in sugar to prevent issues like cavities and infections. Good diets and oral hygiene habits are the key to smiles free of cavities. If you have any questions about our approach to children’s dentistry, or if you want to schedule a visit for your little one, then contact our team today!
