Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings for Kids

Dentist McAllen

Children should come in for their first dental appointment either within six months of their tooth erupting or by their first birthday. Even if your child does not have any erupted teeth, it’s still a great opportunity to learn about their at-home oral hygiene, treatments you should consider for them in the near future, and nutrition for a healthy smile. During their checkup, we’ll briefly examine their mouth for any decay. If we see any, we’ll quickly remove it and offer tips moving forward.

Dental Sealants

Dentist McAllen

Whether your child is already dealing with cavities or you simply want to stay proactive, our dental office can offer additional protection from decay with the help of dental sealants. These thin plastic coverings are designed to seal the many deep pits and cracks that exist naturally in molars and premolars. Since these flat biting surfaces are the most susceptible to decay, they are the most ideal candidates for this treatment. With ten years of protection behind them, they can be a huge asset for your child’s developing smile.

Fluoride Treatments

Dentist McAllen

Following your child’s cleaning, we’ll perform a fluoride treatment to ensure long-term protection in between routine dental visits. The fluoride ions inside of the treatment we provide are much stronger and more concentrated than what you’ll find in your toothpaste at home, which is why we apply them to your child’s teeth every six months. This ensures that their teeth will remain strong and durable moving forward and remain protected against harmful cavity-causing bacteria.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dentist McAllen

Sometimes tooth decay can find its way into your child’s mouth, even with the best oral care routine out there. If this happens, they don’t have to settle for metal fillings to save their teeth. Our dental office utilizes the best materials in dentistry to restore enamel, including high-quality, long-lasting, tooth-colored composite resin! This material can be easily shaped and molded inside of teeth and even blended so that it matches your child’s current shade of enamel! You can expect their filling to provide at least 10 years of protection.

Athletic Mouthguards

Dentist McAllen

Do you have an active family? Do your youngest family members enjoy playing sports like football, basketball, baseball or hockey? When there’s a high chance of impact in sports, there’s just as high of a risk of a dental injury. In fact, dental injuries occur more often from playing sports than any other cause. Our dental office can design an athletic mouthguard that actually fits your child’s mouth comfortably and provides way more protection than what you’ll find over-the-counter.

We're Here for You!
