Pediatric dentists are specialists in treating the unique needs of children. Our pediatric dental specialists have completed several years of specialty training beyond dental school. They limit their practice to treating the oral health needs of infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.
Children have special dental needs, from birth through their late teen years. These special needs require the expert care of a dentist specializing in children’s oral health and development. Pediatric dentistry in TX at Lovett Dental provides this specialized treatment, ensuring your child’s best chance for an attractive, confident smile.
Pediatric dentistry treats children from the arrival of their baby teeth at about six months of age through age 18. Sometimes pediatric dentists see older teens and young adults, depending on their special needs and development.
Children’s oral development includes many stages and changes. Without proper care and attention, children can struggle with preventable oral health challenges. These challenges include disease, decay, improper growth, and other potentially painful complications.
Unfortunately, too few young people receive this important specialized dental care. That is why cavities affect five times more children than asthma. Don’t wait, schedule an appointment at Lovett Dental today!
Pediatric dentists are not simply dentists who decide to take care of children’s teeth. These dentists actually go through additional training, just to practice pediatric dentistry in TX. This training starts with the same dental school foundation as other dentists, four years of this post-graduate study. But they also complete two additional years of residency in dental care for infants, children, adolescents, and special needs children.
A pediatric dentist provides all of the routine dental care your child needs. This care of children’s dentistry includes:
Your family dentist knows how to talk with your child about their oral health. They also educate parents about the best methods of caring for children’s teeth and gums. Through this education and consultation, a family dentist helps your whole family establish healthy habits that last a lifetime. One such important lesson is proper tooth brushing and flossing.
The importance of seeing the dentist regularly is another lesson passed on through children’s dentistry to parents and young people. Pediatric dentists provide a range of preventive care services, such as dental exams and teeth cleanings. Dental sealants, fluoride treatments, dental X-rays, and other services also prevent dental problems.
When children suffer oral health problems, a pediatric dentist provides important treatments through early intervention. This keeps the problems from growing worse.
When your child sees the pediatric dentist twice yearly, the dentist finds early signs of cavities, gum disease, tooth sensitivity, and other issues. Your child’s dentist fills cavities, extracts teeth, and restores broken teeth. This dentist also identifies signs that your child needs orthodontic treatment or oral surgery. By finding problems early, your child receives help at a younger age when oral structures more readily respond to treatment.
Lovett Dental provides a range of specialized dental services in Houston for every member of the family. These services include:
Pediatric dentistry at Lovett Dental enables your children to develop a close relationship with our dentists, hygienists, and other staff members.
