Pediatric Dentistry in texas

    In large part, children's dentistry can be understood as a branch of dentistry that tracks and helps to ensure the proper growth and development of your child's smile. Children's dentists watch closely for any concerns as early smiles transition from baby teeth to permanent adult teeth. On the other hand, adult dentistry deals with the common issues many adults face that affect their permanent teeth. For adults, dentists keep an eye on things like tooth decay and gum disease, while working to maintain good oral health throughout life. While both children and adults can face similar dental issues, children begin receiving "adult" dental care when their full set of permanent teeth have grown in.

    Our practice takes great pride in being your resource for helping to ensure your child's smile is on the right track. We have the experience necessary to identify unique issues affecting children's dental health and will provide age-appropriate solutions for them. Because we've seen the growth patterns of many children's smiles, we are able to identify and proactively treat many issues we notice. For instance, if we see that their teeth are coming in crooked, we'll monitor the situation and recommend possible orthodontic treatments. If issues with your child's smile are too complex to treat at our practice, we can refer you to a trusted specialist so they can address concerns as quickly as possible.


    Pediatric dentistry involves protecting your child's healthy smile, from first teeth to their final adult molars. Another important part of caring for kids is emphasizing education, like teaching your kids proper brushing techniques and the importance of flossing. We use techniques that vary for different ages, like engaging, child-friendly models that help them visualize and retain valuable information.
    Because you come in for regular checkups only so often, one of the most important things we can do is help you and your child build positive hygiene habits together. Staying on top of their oral health at home is a life-long practice that will help keep smiles shining into adulthood. Here are some of the services we provide that help protect your kid's teeth:
    ● Thorough dental exams & checkups.● Sealants.● Fluoride.● Cavity Care & Fillings.● Pulpotomies.● Orthodontic Monitoring.


    First tooth, well baby, or happy visits are valuable preventive measures for children. They're generally quick appointments where you'll have the chance to get to know our dentist and ask any questions or discuss any unusual symptoms your baby might be experiencing. Happy visits will also give us a chance to begin the process of creating positive impressions of our dental team with your child. Depending on the baby's unique situation, these visits may include:
    ● Dental Q&A With Parents: Whether you're a new or experienced parent, you never know what questions might arise. Every child has different needs, and we'll be able to talk to you about providing early dental hygiene, teething, preventing cavities, and so on. We encourage parents to write down questions, and we can go through them together.
     Oral Exam: If we perform an oral exam at your happy visit, our dentist will make the process as gentle and comfortable as possible for your little one. This simple exam uses a small handheld mirror to observe your baby's teeth, gums, and tongue. If we notice anything unusual, we can do additional testing and create a treatment plan to help get ahead of any developing issues.
    ● Nutrition Counseling: As your baby grows and matures, the health of their teeth and gums are directly affected by the foods and beverages they consume. A good diet can provide valuable minerals and vitamins that help promote and protect strong teeth and healthy gums. Our dentist offers advice and education about encouraging good nutrition habits that benefit your child's oral and overall well-being.
    ● Oral Hygiene Tips: Cleaning teeth becomes important as soon as they erupt past the gum line. Our dentist will give you specific instructions about how to best care for early baby teeth and can talk about how brushing and flossing needs change over time.


    We know kids may be anxious about coming in for dental visits. That's why our team has worked hard to create a welcoming, friendly environment that puts them at ease. From gentle, age-appropriate language to a calm and fun chairside manner, we know how each aspect of our treatment can help to create a positive experience. However, if kids are still feeling fearful or anxious, we can discuss different options for them, like nitrous oxide sedation, which can make appointments a bit easier, depending on the situation.


At Kingsland Dental Group, we're passionate about helping kids feel good about their smiles and teaching them how important it is to take good care of their teeth. We aim to build strong, positive relationships with every child we help so they can move forward with a positive view of dental health care. We look forward to meeting you and helping to promote your child's excellent oral health.
