We want your child's first visit to the dentist should be pleasant and stress-free. At Dental Care of Texas offices in Allen, Flower Mound, and Roanoke, Texas, we use a kind gentle touch and work to provide a great dental foundation for our youngest patients. Exceptional patient care to your whole family is our top priority.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children visit the dentist by their first birthday. It is essential that your child benefits from proper oral hygiene habits from an early age. You want to make sure your child's baby teeth receive proper attention. You will want to make sure those teeth stay healthy and are lost naturally. It is also good to teach your children how to avoid tooth decay when they are young.
Dental visits for regular cleanings and checkups are recommended every six months. Dental Care of Texas can also provide fluoride treatments to help keep children's teeth strong and healthy.
Tooth sealants are also recommended for our young patients because they protect the deep grooves in your child's teeth, preventing decay from forming in those areas. Sealants are designed to last for many years and monitored at your child's regular checkups.
We offer other dental treatments to prevent tooth decay in children or to save or repair teeth when necessary. They include:
Bonding: Common childhood occurrences including chips and minor fractures to front teeth can be repaired with tooth-colored bonding materials. These natural-looking resins can be used on baby teeth as well as permanent teeth.
Orthodontic treatment: We offer Phase 1 Orthodontic treatment for children to help direct proper tooth positioning and jaw growth, eliminating or simplifying the need for later treatment. There are many different types of orthodontic problems that can be detected early. It is essential to have a trained professional evaluate your child during his/her growth and development.
Fillings/Crowns: Fillings are the most common method of repairing cavities in our practice. When a cavity affects a tooth, your dentist at Dental Care of Texas will remove the damage and cleanse the area. A filling is then used to then restore the tooth. In the case of more serious damage, a dental crown covers a tooth and stops it from breaking down further.
Dental emergencies: We are always here to help when you need us. If your child experiences a dental emergency, call us immediately. If you need urgent treatment after hours, the office will give you a number for our on-call dentist.
