Pediatric Dentists vs. General Dentists: What's the Difference?
|Child-Friendly Environment||Board Certification in Pediatric Dentistry||Education Focused on Pediatric Cases|
When is it a good time to bring your child to the dentist?
Pediatric Dentistry Experts Recommend a Checkup by Your Child's First Birthday
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, and the American Academy of Pediatrics all recommend that children attend their first dental visit by age one.
Many parents believe that baby teeth do not require as much care as permanent teeth, but healthy baby teeth can help your youngster maintain proper chewing, nutrition, speech development, and permanent teeth development.
During your first appointment at our Rowlett, TX, office, we will provide professional in-office treatment as well as key information about infant oral hygiene. We offer the tools you need to maintain healthy smiles at home. Our pediatric dentists strongly believe in the importance of patient (and parent) education and look forward to partnering with you to keep your little one's smile healthy and beautiful.

Common Pediatric Dental Services
Our team offers white fillings made of composite resin. Unlike metal fillings, white fillings blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. If we cannot complete the treatment for any reason, we might recommend silver diamine fluoride, a material that works to arrest dental decay, until we can place a restoration.
For children who have extensive fractures or tooth decay that cannot be managed with a white filling, we offer stainless steel crowns and stainless steel crowns with white coverings. These durable restorations allow children to bite and chew again without experiencing pain or tooth sensitivity.
It's best for crooked teeth to be treated sooner rather than later. Even a mild case of malocclusion can have negative effects on your oral health in adulthood. Our pediatric dentistry team can provide orthodontic space maintainers, braces, or FASTBRACES® for children who need efficient orthodontic treatment.
Cavities affect more than just the teeth. The oral bacteria that cause decay can also infect the pulp located within a tooth, resulting in a root canal infection. Our doctors can perform pulpotomies (root canals for young children) using advanced materials such as mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA).
During a frenectomy, one of our doctors can remove overgrown soft tissue within the mouth. This procedure can help children with their speech and eating habits, or babies who are having trouble nursing. When possible, we use lasers rather than scalpels to reduce anxiety and minimize infection risk.
Whenever possible, we work to preserve baby teeth and permanent teeth using preventative and restorative techniques. When severely damaged teeth cannot be saved, we can perform gentle tooth extractions.
Putting Children at Ease A Pediatric Dentist Who Cares
We understand that many kids are afraid of going to the dentist, especially very young children. To help young patients feel at ease and build a positive association with dentistry, we maintain a calm, child-friendly atmosphere. We also help young patients understand procedures, so they aren't so scary anymore. No matter how young, we treat every visitor the way we would treat one of our own family members.
We Proudly Offer Pediatric Sedation Helping Kids Feel Relaxed During Their Visit
Explaining dental treatments in a child-friendly way usually helps kids relax. If a child still feels uneasy about sitting in the dentist's chair, we have other safe methods of overcoming anxiety.
Our Rowlett, TX, pediatric dental practice offers sedation dentistry to make each visit more comfortable. We have nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral medications, or intravenous (IV) sedation. Our dentists can help you choose a method of sedation that meets your youngster's unique needs, helping them feel comfortable in the moment while decreasing their anxiety about future appointments.
We closely monitor children when using sedation techniques in order to ensure their absolute safety.

Tips From the Dentist Caring for Your Child's Teeth at Home
Avoid Sugary Drinks Before Bedtime
Sending your child to bed with a bottle of milk or juice may get them to settle down quickly, but the sugar in these drinks will sit in your child's mouth all night, making it a breeding ground for bacteria and leading to eventual tooth decay. After brushing your child's teeth, avoid letting them drink any beverages other than water before bedtime.
Eat Tooth-Friendly Foods
Certain foods can be better or worse for your child's oral health. Often, kids receive a large amount of sugar from consuming too many juices and not enough water. Cut down on the amount of sugar your child consumes and give them foods and drinks with tooth-friendly nutrients, such as calcium, vitamin D, potassium, and iron.
Make Brushing Fun
It can be tedious to brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day as an adult, let alone as a child. Make brushing fun by playing your child’s favorite song for two minutes or incorporate a physical timer, such as a sand hourglass, so your child can see how much longer they have to brush.
