Start Your Child’s Oral Health Future Right

Children require special attention regarding their oral health for several reasons. Not only do we need to pay close attention to how their teeth and jaw are developing, but we also need to catch early signs of dental disease before it causes significant damage to their long-term oral health. At The Dental People, the dentists take children’s dentistry very seriously. Whether your child needs an exam and lesson in at-home oral care or preventive treatments to protect their smile, we can make it happen. Call our dental office to get them started with children’s dentistry in Katy, TX!

Children’s Dental Checkups, Teeth Cleanings & Preventive Care

If you're a parent, our dental office recommends that you bring your child in either within six months of their first tooth erupting or by their first birthday. By that point, some baby teeth may have started to erupt. Even if they haven't just yet, you should still bring them in so we can examine their mouth briefly and help them acclimate to the dental office. Remember that any cleaning or examinations will be brief at their young age, with more time spent on future treatments, at-home oral care, and diet considerations as their teeth appear.

Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants

As your child's teeth begin to erupt, keeping them clean may prove difficult as they begin their at-home oral care. As a result, their risk for tooth decay and cavities is higher overall, especially in teeth with deep pits and fissures. With the help of dental sealants, we can provide additional protection for your child's most vulnerable teeth. Once the composite resin is applied, your child can benefit from a minimum of ten years of protection against cavity-causing bacteria and food debris.

Question About Children’s Dentistry?

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is essential for patients of all ages, but it's especially crucial for younger patients because of their higher risk for tooth decay. Regular fluoride applications work to protect and strengthen their primary teeth, which is incredibly important for the development of their permanent teeth. They also stop the early signs of tooth decay, preventing cavities from forming. Fluoride treatments are traditionally done after routine cleanings, but we recommend additional fluoride treatments if we believe your child could benefit.

Athletic Mouthguards

Athletic Mouthguards

Your child needs to be active at a young age, but that doesn't mean their smile should be at risk. Custom-made athletic mouthguards offer optimal protection when your child plays contact sports like football, basketball, hockey, or martial arts. Unlike store-bought solutions, professionally-made mouthguards provide the highest level of durability and comfort because they are designed to fit your child's teeth exactly. That means they'll want to wear them and last longer than mass-produced versions.

Pediatric Dental Emergencies

Pediatric Dental Emergencies

Children are just as prone to dental emergencies as adults – maybe even more so! From accidentally knocking out a tooth while running around the playground to crying over a bad toothache, your son or daughter will need relief fast in these dire situations. The Dental People are more than happy to provide it. We will alleviate their discomfort as quickly as possible and carry out personalized care to repair the tooth or teeth in question in lasting ways. If a baby's tooth is injured or lost prematurely, we encourage parents to schedule an appointment so we can determine the extent of the damage and confirm that their overall smile is fine.
