All younger kids need a pediatric dentist because their tooth structure is very different from adult teeth. A pediatric dentist can help each kid prepare for adult teeth. As you work with your child to create strong, good oral hygiene habits, you will help them have strong, healthy adult teeth in the future. At Olive Tree Dentistry, we have several pediatric services available for all children. Doing what you can now to help your child have healthy teeth will help them avoid any major dental issues in the future. We are excited to work with you and your child in our office in Sunnyvale, Texas.
Baby teeth appear around six months old. We know that this is very early for a dental check-up and cleaning, but you should still give attention to these baby teeth. Cavities are very prominent with young kids, as they are still working to develop good oral hygiene habits. Even though baby teeth do eventually fall out, taking care of them can lead to healthy adult teeth right from the beginning. Some of the pediatric services we offer include:
- Dental Fillings
- Pediatric check-ups and exams
- Fluoride Treatments
Dr. Koshy is one of the very best in the practice to work with younger kids. She has the highest education available and is fully prepared to work with each child. She explains each step of the procedure in the simplest terms to make it easy for young kids to understand what will happen. She shows each child the tools and helps them feel more comfortable and in control. As they grow up, the dentist will become a familiar place to them. They will feel more relaxed and welcome in our office.
We know that the dentist is a nerve-wracking experience for many people, especially for kids. That is why we have provided several different amenities in our office to help ease any nerves that exist. Some of these include a comfortable waiting room filled with toys and books. Kids have the choice to watch a movie above them while the dentist is working on their mouth. After each treatment, we also offer goodie bags that kids can look forward to!
We offer them laughing gas for kids who are more nervous about the actual procedure. Laughing gas is made from the elements nitrogen, helium, and oxygen. Laughing gas is meant to help your kids relax and feel more at ease during the procedure. They will be fully conscious and can even respond to any questions asked. The effects of laughing gas will wear off as soon as normal oxygen is breathed again. If you know that your child will benefit from laughing gas, please let us know!
Pediatric dentistry is available for all kids under the age of 18. We know that older teenagers will most likely feel more confident in the dentist’s office, but if that is not the case, we are willing to accommodate them to make them feel more comfortable. No matter your child’s age, we will work with them to help them gain good oral hygiene habits that will lead to beautiful, healthy smiles!
