Pediatric dentistry is concerned with helping children of all ages maintain a healthy mouth and teeth. Dental development is an important part of a child’s overall growth. At Just Dental, we ensure that your child maintains proper oral health through his/her years of growth. Our pediatric dental care is focused on helping children maintain a good at-home oral care regimen and healthy habits to ensure good teeth and gum health and avoidance of dental issues.
Our pediatric dental services include the following:
- Kids’ complete checkups
Children also need regular professional cleanings and checkups just like adults. These should ideally happen once in every six months, starting from when a child turns one year of age.
- Preventative treatments
Preventive care allows us to monitor your child’s dental development and take measures to prevent the occurrence of future dental problems such as decay, cavities, and any potential issues that may require orthodontic treatment.
Dental sealants are thin coatings of plastic that act as a barrier to prevent decay and cavities. They are made of plastic and are painted on the chewing surfaces of a child’s back teeth to seal out decay causing bacteria, plaque and food particles.
Orthodontic space maintainers are custom appliances that are placed in the mouth at the site of lost teeth to allow the erupting permanent teeth to come into their proper place.
- Fluoride applications
Topical fluoride applications can help in preventing the occurrence of cavities and can also repair early stages of decay.
We also offer restorations such as fillings, composite bonding, etc. to help improve the appearance and function of your child’s teeth.
Just Dental employs a friendly staff who loves to work with children and understands their unique care needs. Call our practice at (281)394-9988to schedule your child’s appointment with us.
