Keep Their Smiles Healthy This Holiday


Allen Family Dentist offers children's dental visits

In our last blog, we talked about what you can do to keep your oral hygiene a top priority during this jolly season. Today, your Allen family dentist is here to tell you about the perfect gift you can give your children this holiday: healthy teeth. We have children’s dentistry treatments available in our office to help your young one always have a great smile.

End The Year Bright

December is quickly coming to an end, and the new year will be upon us before we know it. If your young one’s last dentist appointment was before July, it’s time to give us a call. We’ll do our best to work with your schedule and get your young one in for a visit before winter break is over and they are back in school.

Pediatric dental visits are essential to your kid’s oral health. With new teeth growing in or falling out, constant changes are happening as your youngster grows up. Regular cleanings help ensure that your child is brushing correctly and thoroughly. We can also check for problems like cavities, misaligned bites, and speech problems that can be fixed with orthodontic care.

Correcting And Restoring

If we notice that your kiddo may not be brushing properly, we can help offer better tips. It can be difficult to get your toddler or young child to maintain a consistent routine. Be sure to brush alongside them to show them good habits. If we notice that a cavity has formed, we offer fillings to restore the area. This helps stop the spread of decay so that no further damage is caused.

We can also recognize signs of decay before a cavity forms. If we see this during a cleaning, we may recommend sealants. This is a material that is applied to the tooth and acts as a barrier for bacteria. It can be difficult for your kiddo to reach every area of their mouth when brushing. These long-lasting sealants are often applied to the molars and will help prevent food from sticking to the teeth and growing cavity-causing bacteria.

As your child’s teeth grow, there will be a lot of change in just a few years. It is crucial that we keep up with examinations and X-rays to monitor the growth of their incoming teeth. If we notice any concerns with the way their adult teeth are coming in, we may refer you to an orthodontist to begin early treatment.
