Pediatric Dentist Austin TX
Here at myDental, we offer children 6 months of age and up the highest quality pediatric dental care. With a caring attitude, a soft touch, and an emphasis on your child having an overall pleasant dental experience, our pediatric dentists and staff of compassionate pediatric dentistry hygienists make every effort to ensure that fear of the dentist never develops in your child.
Our pediatric dentistry services include:
- Annual exams
- Preventive cleanings
- Panoramic and bite wing X-rays
- Treatment for cavities, bite problems, and thumb sucking
- Dental sealants
- Fluoride treatments
- Screening for early orthodontic problems (jaw and bite problems)
- Brushing education
Early dental exams and cleanings are important in helping your child avoid a life of dental problems. We will teach or remind your child how to correctly brush and floss and why it is important.
To prevent cavities, limit your child’s intake of sugary foods and drinks and make sure he is brushing twice a day. If your child is still drinking from a bottle, don’t let her go to bed with a bottle of milk, formula, or juice. When sugar remains on teeth overnight, the teeth can decay quickly.
Brushing and flossing are also important in preventing gingivitis (the early stage of gum disease), which is a nearly universal problem among children and adolescents.
The professionals at myDental welcome you and your children to our practice. We are dedicated to making dentistry a fun, educational, positive experience for your child, and we encourage you to participate in your child’s treatment.
