At first, kids rely on their parents’ help to keep their teeth clean. Even when they are old enough to brush and floss for themselves, they still benefit from the added support of their regular professional teeth cleanings. At our Dallas, TX pediatric dental office, we provide gentle, thorough teeth cleanings during routine appointments. By doing so, we take care of the plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to more serious oral health concerns. We can also provide guidance and feedback about the state of their daily hygiene routine when we examine and care for young smiles. (more…)
We want to see kids for their first checkup at around age one, and for a routine exam every six months starting at age two. These visits help preserve oral health and instill good dental hygiene habits! As part of the exam process, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist will employ advanced digital technology, such as digital x-rays.
When your child has pain in his or her mouth, or a tooth that has become chipped or cracked, then this could be considered a dental emergency. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist will talk about how to address common injuries to ease discomfort, and how we can offer treatment to bring your child relief!
Our team strives to help kids in our community obtain quality care for minor and more extensive oral health issues. To do so, we employ advanced technologies. In addition to digital x-rays and intraoral camera technology, we also implement advanced dental lasers. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist talks about the benefits of the Solea system, including less time in the chair and even the chance to undergo treatment without anesthesia or needles!
Sometimes, children need restorative treatments, such as filling or crown placement, or even a tooth extraction, to preserve their oral health. In these situations, we want to ensure they feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist talks about how sedation helps kids remain comfortable.
When possible, we always strive to save and repair your child’s tooth, usually with treatments like fillings or the placement of a dental crown. However, in some situations actually taking the tooth out completely is the best way to avoid major complications. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist will discuss the tooth extraction process.
When a child comes to us with a cavity, we help by placing a dental filling. But what if a tooth has developed more than a cavity? What if it has become infected or abscessed? In these situations, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist can offer relief with a conservative version of a root canal known as a pulpotomy.
When a filling isn’t enough to bring relief or repair to a smile, then a crown may be needed. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist will discuss when a child needs a dental crown, and how our white crowns can offer a more natural appearance! A lifelike repair and better oral health are possible with our restorations.
When your child has a cavity, this could mean discomfort for your little one. In addition, a dental infection could develop that means premature tooth loss! To offer a safe and lifelike dental filling in only one visit, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist may recommend one of our composite resin dental fillings.
If possible, we want to help your children avoid cavities, with in-office treatments and better oral hygiene habits at home. To do so, we can use special treatment options to keep teeth strong. With dental sealants, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist can help prevent cavities from forming in the hard-to-reach rear teeth.
