At our dental practice, Healthy Teeth Pediatric Dentistry, we provide comprehensive dental care for your child in a warm, welcoming, and stress-free environment. We diagnose and treat tooth decay, treat dental emergencies, treat orthodontic needs of children, help children to stop performing poor health habits such as thumbsucking, treat oral pathologies, remove stains from teeth, and help with issues such as tongue thrusting which can cause speech issues. Children have so many specialized dental needs that you will want to bring your child to a pediatric dentist for all of his or her dental care. Pediatric dentists are specially trained to recognize and treat pediatric dental problems. Our Sugarland children’s dentist can also recognize if your child needs a space maintainer to help maintain their dental health.
Your child’s baby teeth should stay in place until they are pushed out by the permanent tooth that is meant to take its place. However, when baby teeth are lost prematurely, this can cause problems. In order to avoid these problems, our Sugarland children’s dentist will be able to provide your child with a space maintainer. A space maintainer is an oral device that will save the space in the mouth for the permanent tooth to erupt into. If a baby tooth is removed due to its developing a cavity, or being injured, a space maintainer will be needed. A space maintainer can either be a permanent fixture in your child’s mouth or made to be removable. Our Sugarland children’s dentist will be able to discuss the options with you and help determine the best way for your child to be treated. Treatment with a space maintainer will most likely make it unnecessary for your child to need orthodontic treatment resulting from this particular tooth situation. For an appointment for your child to come in and seen by our expert pediatric dentist, contact us today.
