Dentistry for Kids
Fort Worth, TX
Children have the most beautiful and kindest smiles. However, in order for them to shine brightly every day, they need proper and regular dental care, just as adults do. Many parents are unaware of the importance of good oral health at early stages in life, but it is actually at this moment that it is most crucial for your kid to develop the good habits that will then last them a lifetime. We here at HomeTown Dental, Fort Worth (Sycamore) are committed to help you and your children prevent the development of common dental problems, and we strive to help ensure the wellness of their primary teeth with a comfortable, attentive and professional experience.
The Importance of Primary Teeth
With proper care, primary teeth are responsible for establishing a strong foundation for adult teeth by holding the space in the gums where they will eventually erupt. Not only that, but they also play a role in language development, jawbone growth, and the overall coordination of the musculature of the mouth. A healthy, good-looking set of teeth will be a pillar for the self-esteem of your kid and will encourage him or her to show that confident smile that you adore.
The Benefits of Preventive Dentistry
Children can have their first oral exam as soon as they reach their first year of age. Moreover, their teeth should start to be mildly brushed as they erupt. We put special attention into teaching you how to correctly do it so they can take care of their own teeth when they are older. We also provide tips on the toothbrushes and toothpastes to use, as well as an understanding of the routines they should begin to adapt to maintain impeccable oral hygiene.
Primary teeth are prone to obtaining cavities and decay, so apart from keeping an eye on the sugar intake of your child, a comprehensive consultation and dental cleaning at least twice a year is highly recommended. Although it is possible to fight most dental problems though good oral hygiene, our aim is to address them before they further develop and make sure that they do not even emerge in the first place. This can help save your child from the discomfort that these issues can cause them. If necessary, we may recommend the use of sealants. This is a thin coat of tooth-colored material that is attached to the back or their teeth. Sealants are unnoticeable for the patient and act as a barrier to bacteria and plaque.
Making your Child Happy and Comfortable
We are certified pediatric professionals who understand that it can be daunting for your kid to come to the office, and it is our main priority to create a welcoming atmosphere so they feel safe and enthusiastic about returning once again for a future visit. We want to build a long-lasting relationship with patients and work with their parents as a team to make every step of the process easier. Every child has its own individual needs, and we are mindful to treat them with the care they deserve.
