Professional Dental Services for All Ages
Our dental office regularly cares for the dental needs of children as young as three years old. However, if you notice that your child has a problem with his or her teeth or gums prior to this age, please schedule an appointment. You may also want to bring your child to your own dental checkup when he or she is about two so they can become familiar with the sights and sounds of our Plano dental office. Your child's independent checkup at age three will involve a tooth-by-tooth inspection and periodontal exam. Their dentist will check for proper oral development as well as tooth decay and other areas of concern. To schedule their next (or first) checkup, contact us today to learn more about children's dentistry in Plano, TX.

Your Child's Dental Checkup
As your child grows, he or she will need regular checkups and hygiene visits to ensure optimal oral health. Our team will also teach oral homecare techniques so your child can learn how to effectively brush and floss on their own. Their dentist may recommend dental sealants or fluoride supplements. Sealants are thin, clear or white coatings that protect hard-to-clean back teeth from the sugars that cause tooth decay. Fluoride attracts other minerals to strengthen tooth enamel and ward off cavities. Because most bottled water does not contain fluoride, your child may be deficient in this essential mineral. Sealants and fluoride supplements are quick and easy protective measures that can save your little one from cavities.
For more complicated issues, we refer children to pediatric dentists, who are specialists in children's dentistry. We will help you make the best choices for your child's unique dental needs.
