Choosing the right pediatric dentist to care for your children’s’ teeth is a big decision, getting it right the first time will save you having to pay for another consultation and the change of dentist can be unsettling. Have confidence in choosing Denton Oak Dentistry because we care for your child like you do.
At Denton Oak Dentistry our goal is to create a positive and comfortable experience that will result in a life-long relationship of trust and confidence with you, your child and our dentists. We recommend that a child’s first oral health visit take place six months after his/her first tooth appears. This is the best time for our team to evaluate your child’s oral, dental, and nutritional health, as well as to diagnose any problems which may already exist. During the initial consultation, we will answer any questions you may have and carry out a full check-up of your child’s mouth including an examination of the teeth and mouth. Your child’s bite (occlusion) and oral hygiene will be evaluated, nutrition counseling and oral hygiene guidance will be provided to help you get on the right path towards a healthy smile. Treatment does not normally begin during the consultation unless needed.
As soon as your child’s teeth start to come out, you must brush them with a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Encourage children to drink water that is optimally fluoridated instead of fruit juice.
Dental sealants are an excellent way to prevent tooth decay in children. The dental sealant procedure takes only minutes, is painless, is less than half the cost of a filling.
Children actively involved in sports need a robust mouth protection to prevent any damage and injuries during play. A mouth guard is a good way of keeping your teeth safe and intact. Ask us for more information on sports mouth guards.
