Children’s Dental Visits
The American Dental Association recommends that parents bring their children in for their first dental visit by the time their first tooth appears in their mouth. These first impressions are vital, which is why our team does everything possible to help your child feel comfortable in the treatment chair. For the first couple of appointments that your child has with us, we’ll simply conduct an examination of their teeth and gums to make sure their oral health is on track and they aren’t developing any problems. As they become more used to the environment and begin to trust our team as they get to know them, we’ll start introducing them to the dental gadgets we use in our office to keep their mouths healthy, such as the polisher, scaler, and dental mirror.
After your child’s first appointment, it’s important to bring them in every six months for a checkup and cleaning so we can inspect for common problems that children have, such as cavities. As they get a bit older, we can also examine their dental structure for orthodontic issues such as bite misalignment that can impact their oral health down the road. If we notice any problems, we can suggest braces or clear aligners to address them.
At Maxwello Dental, we want to ward off oral health problems to ensure that your child’s smile stays healthy and happy for years to come. That’s why we offer a variety of kid-friendly preventive treatments, and may suggest one at one of their checkups and cleanings if we notice that they’re at risk.
We paint on seals that protect their molars from the threat of cavities by preventing harmful substances like food debris and plaque from collecting in the grooves and crevices of their teeth. It’s an easy, fast, and reliable treatment that will keep your child’s teeth free of cavities.
For children who have weakened enamel, we may suggest a fluoride treatment to help protect their teeth. This is a mineral that’s naturally found in a variety of foods that helps strengthen the protect layer of their pearly whites from decay.
As your child gets older, we may spot signs of orthodontic problems such as bite misalignment and crowding. In these cases, we’ll likely recommend looking into one of our many orthodontic treatments that we offer.
Teeth Grinding Guards
Just like adults, countless children regularly grind their teeth as they sleep, which can put them at risk of damaging them. We offer custom-crafted, cushioned nightguards so you can avoid an unexpected visit to the emergency dentist.
Our team loves working with children and parents to help build healthy, life-long habits. Since our children’s dentist in Pearland is highly skilled in a variety of treatments, you won’t have to worry about taking your child from specialist to specialist in order for them to receive the treatment they need.
