At Temple Dental Trails, we understand how important it is for you and your child to feel completely comfortable with us. Every child reacts differently, and we make it a point to learn exactly what your child needs to feel safe and secure. In fact, we’re so good at it that we actually make dentistry fun!
The First Visit
This is an exciting time in your child’s life – their baby teeth are starting to appear, and it’s time for that all-important first visit. What happens? How will they react? As a parent, you have lots of questions, but most importantly you want to make sure that it’s a positive experience.
Dr. Richard Leung is great with kids, so you’ve already got one worry taken care of. You can also put your mind at rest, because the purpose of the first visit to our Temple dental office is not to do any serious dental work. We just want to start getting your child excited about visiting the dentist so they will look forward to seeing us in the future.
Preventive Treatments for Healthy Teeth
You may not realize it, but baby teeth serve a very important purpose aside from the ability to chew and speak properly. Of course, your child will eventually lose their primary teeth, but until then, these teeth play a critical role.
Think of your child’s baby teeth as placeholders that make space for permanent teeth to develop properly. If a first tooth is lost too soon, adjacent teeth can start to move out of alignment and cause permanent teeth to erupt out of their proper position.
Exams at this stage will help us detect potential problems while they’re small and easy to treat. If your little one ever needs a cavity filled, we make their experiences relaxing and enjoyable. We can perform many procedures quickly and without the need for shots.
Dental sealants can be applied to the surface of your child’s teeth to prevent cavities from appearing. We may also recommend treatments with fluoride, which is essential for keeping teeth strong and healthy.
Making Visits Fun
Are you worried how your child will react to all the new sights and sounds when they come to our office? Well, don’t worry, because we have all the fun things your toddler or older child needs to feel right at home from the moment they arrive.
