Kid’s Dentistry for the Youth of Allen, Texas!
We need dental care for your child to be comfortable and suitable, and having the ability to use the same dentist for yourself and for your children not only saves you time, but it allows you continue a relationship with someone you trust for a long time to come.
Kids’s dentistry, just like adult dentistry, rests on a basis of preventative dental care, including cleanings and checkups. Children also need instruction to learn how they are able to help prevent gum disease and cavities, both of which are quite common amongst children. Since kids aren’t typically proficient at brushing and flossing, we must use kids’s cleanings and dental checkups as an opportunity to search for indications of decay or damage and take steps to intervene if we see these issues. The earlier an issue is noticed by us, the better we can address the problem.
During dental exam with children, we’ll discuss various items with your child and you, including:
- Appropriate oral hygiene habits
- Fluoride requirements
- Potential issues like thumb sucking or tongue thrusting
- Healthy Eating Habits
Instruction is a large part of what we offer to children here at Fairview Dental. We’ll also use routine kids dentistry checkups and cleanings as an opportunity to search for indications of potential developmental issues which may need orthodontic treatment.
As children age, they may need other services, including dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel. Sealants cover molars to keep plaque and bacteria from causing cavities in those teeth.
We can supply a referral to a pediatric dentist if your child develops an advanced oral health problem that needs specialized treatment.
