Dallas Childrens Dentist Our services:- • WHITE FILLINGS • Not just for permanent teeth, even baby (primary) teeth sometimes need fillings. Primary teeth play a critical part in your child’s development, affecting their ability to: • Chew food • Develop strong jaw muscles and use of tongue • Speak properly • Maintain proper spacing for permanent teeth When a tooth is cracked, disfigured or decayed, a composite (white) filling may be used to restore the tooth to prevent more extensive breakage needing a crown or to keep a primary tooth in place until the permanent tooth erupts. Composite fillings are tooth colored and can be closely matched to the existing tooth color, especially important in more visible areas of the mouth.
CLEANINGS An essential part of maintaining your child’s oral health is having regular professional cleanings. During your cleaning appointment, the hygienist will: Remove plaque and tartar. Plaque is a sticky film containing bacteria that attack tooth enamel, causing cavities and inflaming the gums. Plaque left on teeth over time hardens and becomes calculus (tartar), which can only be removed with dental tools. Without proper care, plaque and tartar can lead to periodontal disease. Polish teeth. This final step removes minor stains and any remaining plaque, making teeth their whitest and brightest! Treat with fluoride. Your dentist may suggest a fluoride treatment to help their teeth stay strong. Dallas Childrens Dentist
SPECIAL NEEDS DENTAL CARE Children with special needs often have a greater incidence of tooth decay, gum disease and oral trauma. The staff at Pediatric Dental Specialist of Hiram has been specially trained to design a program to address your child’s specific needs. Close attention to oral health is especially important for special children for several reasons: Physical limitations and lack of proper motor function can make brushing and flossing difficult. Some medications and special dietary requirements may be detrimental to dental health. Some children require frequent medical treatments and doctors’ appointments, and it is understandable for parents to spend less time overseeing the child’s oral hygiene habits.

Dallas Pediatric Dentist PEDIATRIC SEDATION DENTISTRY Pediatric Dental Specialist of Hiram is dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your child’s teeth. Your child’s response to their dental experiences can make a lasting impression – a positive experience will help your child feel confident when visiting a dentist. Some children may be unable, because of fear or inability, to cope with dental treatments, or may make uncontrolled movements that could cause injury to the child. Others may develop such a fear that they will have trouble cooperating during future visits or even refuse treatment. These children may be more comfortable and safe with sedation.
DIGITAL XRAYS Children’s mouths grow quickly and changes occur that cannot be seen in a visual exam. Your child’s dental exam will include xrays every 12-18 months to evaluate the teeth and mouth for conditions such as cavities, erupting teeth, extra or missing teeth and bone disease.

RECALL EXAM At least 60% of kindergartners suffer from tooth decay, the number one childhood disease. Even with daily brushing and flossing, plaque can still develop, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. Only professional cleanings can remove the plaque and tartar that cause tooth decay and gum disease. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Academy of Pediatrics and Pediatric Dental Specialist of Hiram recommend that your child have regular dental check-ups beginning at age one.
