When should I visit the dentist in Dallas?
The very first appointment will be quick and easy. We will have the parents help us while we check on the overall oral health of your child. We will evaluate tooth eruption and gum health. This is a great time to introduce proper brushing techniques to the parents and child. This initial visit is to ensure the patient is comfortable with the dentist and that we can emphasize proper oral health to the parents.
Preventive care at home
Visiting the dentist every 6 months is only one part of your dental journey. Without proper at home care it does not matter how many times you come in to get your teeth cleaned as nothing is better than proper brushing and flossing.
As a parent you will likely have to brush and floss your children’s teeth until they reach the age of 6 or so.
Showing your child the importance of proper oral health care will set them up for success in the future and lead to easy dental visits.
Dental sealants in Dallas
Between the ages of 4-16 your teeth are very prone to decay. If you do not have proper brushing and flossing habits this can lead to cavities which will affect you the rest of your life. This is why we recommend dental sealants for most of our patients.
Dental sealants help prevent cavities by filling in the deep grooves of your teeth with a type of dental composite. This will help protect your teeth from large decay.
Fluoride treatments for children
Fluoride is one of the biggest reasons for less decay now then decades ago. This fast and easy treatment is like vitamins for your teeth. Fluoride replaces some of the molecules of your teeth with stronger atoms that lead to a stronger tooth structure.
A stronger tooth means less cavities in the future. We recommend fluoride to most of our patients at our Dallas location.
