Here at Healthy Teeth Pediatric Dentistry, we know that your kid’s first visit to our office is a crucial moment that will help determine his or her attitudes about not only our 77494 kids dentist, but about dentistry in general for a long time to come. This is why we have put so much effort into ensuring that her or his first time here is one that is positive and free of tension.
From the moment you and your child walk into our office, you will see and sense an atmosphere of fun. We are dedicated to making children feel at-home and welcome. Your child will have a chance to learn about what dentistry is and how the tools work. When things aren’t strange, they don’t seem as intimidating. Our staff and our 77494 kids dentist will get to know your child and you. Relaxed is the best word to describe the process. If your child is feeling any anxiety, we will make it our goal to put her or him at ease. A first visit will also entail a complete oral examination. This means a visual and physical inspection of the teeth, gums, and jaws. It’s important to detect any potential problems or concerns as soon as possible so that they can be addressed before a simple solution turns into a more complex one. X-rays will be taken so that any cavities in your child’s teeth will be found and filled. It is vital that his or her primary (baby) teeth are kept strong and healthy so that they stay in place until they are scheduled to fall out naturally, thereby making room for the permanent (adult) teeth to erupt. A teeth cleaning will also be done, to ensure that all plaque and tartar are completely removed.
Moving forward, you will work in tandem with our 77494 kids dentist to prevent tooth decay and to make certain that the well-being of your child’s teeth is priority number one. Call us and schedule an appointment for her or him right now.
