Children’s Dentistry

Professional Dental Care for Children

Typically, children are fascinated by new things and experiences. However, visiting the dentist isn’t always as exciting, which is why it takes an especially caring and compassionate team to provide comfortable, effective dental health care for children. At Pecan Tree Dental, our doctors and team take pride in being able to help children of all ages benefit from personalized, high-quality dental care in a calm, welcoming, and kid-friendly environment.

A head-start on good dental health

It’s never too early to start focusing on your child’s dental health. Even before your child’s first tooth develops, you should routinely clean the gums and dental ridges with clean, moist gauze or cloth. When the first tooth appears or shortly after their first birthday, children should attend an initial visit to get acquainted with our office. After the age of three, we recommend scheduling children for regular checkup and cleaning appointments at least once every six months.

Checkups & cleanings

On average, children need routine checkups and cleanings as often as adults do. Each visit includes gentle, professional teeth cleaning as well as a comprehensive oral health exam to help ensure your child’s continued good oral health.

Fluoride treatment

In addition to professional cleaning, we can also suggest protecting children’s teeth with the help of topical fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a mineral that bonds to the outer layers of your child’s tooth enamel, strengthening it against attacks by harmful oral bacteria.

Dental sealants

For even more protection, we can also recommend applying dental sealants to the chewing surfaces of some of your child’s teeth. Dental sealants are made from clear, biocompatible acrylic, and can prevent plaque and food particles from gathering on your child’s teeth.
