A lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles begins with your child’s first visit with our Houston pediatric dentist at Lifeworks Dental. Our caring, highly trained professional team makes checkups fun and engaging for your child, while also providing leading-edge preventive care to help protect your child’s smile and reduce the risk of cavities. We’re experienced providing care for children at all stages of growth and development and deliver personalized care to accommodate your child’s individual needs.
As soon as your child’s first tooth erupts, which usually occurs by the age of one, it is time for a visit with our Houston pediatric dentist. At your child’s first visit, we will discuss with you how to properly clean and care for your child’s newly emerging teeth, how to handle the discomfort of teething and how to prevent early pediatric dental disease, such as baby bottle tooth decay. We’ll also perform a comprehensive examination to track the development of your child’s teeth, gums and their surrounding anatomy and to diagnose problematic conditions from the outset, when they are easiest to treat. As children get older and are ready to take on more or the responsibilities of maintaining excellent oral hygiene themselves, we’re here to answer any of their questions, and offer guidance at every checkup for brushing, flossing and making the right nutritional choices. We also provide fluoride treatments, which help strengthen to enamel to protect against cavities, and once your child’s permanent molars erupt, we can apply dental sealants, which are protective coatings that seal out plaque and food debris from the grooves and crevices of the back teeth.
At Lifeworks Dental, we make dental care a positive experience for our youngest patients. Our Houston pediatric dentist emphasizes prevention and early intervention when it comes to your child’s oral health. To learn more or to schedule your child’s checkup, give us a call today.
