Why Choose Our Family Dentistry Practice in Denton, TX

One of the most important parts of caring for our young patients is educating them about proper oral hygiene. We’ll make sure they understand the importance of keeping their teeth healthy with daily brushing and flossing. If they’re still too young to brush and floss alone, we’ll encourage you to do it with them and turn oral care into a fun family activity.

Our children’s area features toys, books, mazes, and other entertainment that will keep your child occupied while they wait. We’ll even reward them with a prize to take home for following instructions and behaving well during their appointment.

Dentistry Services for Children

Dental Cleanings and Exams

Just like adults, your child should come in for dental cleanings and exams at least twice a year. Our approach to pediatric dental cleanings goes beyond the routine, focusing on the significance of early oral hygiene habits. Our gentle and kid-friendly cleaning techniques not only effectively remove plaque and tartar during these visits but also aim to make the experience enjoyable.

Our dental team takes the time to educate young patients on the importance of maintaining healthy gums and teeth. By creating a comfortable environment, we ensure that children feel at ease during their cleanings, laying the foundation for a positive attitude toward dental care as they grow. Additionally, during these visits, we monitor the development of their teeth, keeping a vigilant eye out for any potential issues such as impacted wisdom teeth.

Laser Dental Care

We’re proud to feature the Waterlase iPlus® dental laser at our practice. This advanced technology gives our dentists the ability to treat cavities without the need for shots or drilling. As a result, your child can enjoy a comfortable experience in the dental chair.

The laser is so precise and accurate that it can target decay and infection without damaging any healthy tissue. With the aid of the Waterlase, our dentist can numb and fill your child’s tooth without them feeling a thing, and no novocaine or anesthesia is necessary. By providing your child with a pleasant experience, we’ll help reduce their anxiety for any necessary dental treatments in the future.

Dental Fillings

Cavities in children can be a common concern, and our dental fillings for young patients are designed with their comfort in mind. Our experienced dentists use the latest technology, allowing them to remove decay and restore the tooth to health with natural, tooth-colored fillings, typically without the need for local anesthetics.

We take the time to explain the process to both children and parents, ensuring that they feel informed and at ease throughout the treatment. By making the experience as pleasant as possible, we aim to instill a positive association with dental care in children from an early age.

Tongue-Tie Release

Tongue-tie issues can impact a child’s oral function, and our specialized treatments focus on safe and effective tongue-tie releases. Our experienced pediatric dentistry team assesses each case individually, considering the unique needs of the child.

We prioritize the well-being and comfort of our young patients, ensuring that the procedure is performed with precision and care. By addressing tongue-tie issues early on, we contribute to improved oral function and overall well-being for children.
