Children’s Dentistry – Houston, TX

We Help Growing Smiles Thrive

Your child’s smile begins growing in the womb and doesn’t stop until they’re in their late teens or even early 20s. Over the course of those years, getting them comfortable with visiting their dentist and helping them learn how to properly take care of their pearly whites is incredibly important. From toddlers to teenagers, we offer a wide range of kid-friendly treatments to keep common oral problems at-bay.

Athletic Mouthguards/ Sportsguards

Does your child or teen participate in school or local sports? The last thing you would want to have to worry about is their teeth becoming damaged or knocked-out as they’re out on the field. With a custom-fitted mouthguard crafted to provide maximized protection to their jaw, muscles, and teeth, they’ll be able to give it their all out on the field without having to worry about potential harm coming to their smile.

Dental Sealants

One of the most common oral health problems among children is cavities because they’re still learning how to take care of their smiles. To help protect their growing pearly whites during this crucial developmental time, we can place dental sealants over the biting surfaces of their molars to keep food particles and plaque from building up in the pits and crevices of them. We’ll simply paint and cure a clear protective coating over their teeth, and they’ll continue protecting them for years with the proper maintenance.

Non-Nutritive Habits

Thumb and pacifier-sucking is a completely healthy and natural coping mechanism for babies to develop to help them feel safe and secure. When it starts to become a problem is once a majority of their baby teeth have grown in, around the age of four or five. The constant sucking force of this habit can alter the development of their oral cavity, ultimately resulting in the need for extensive orthodontic treatment as a teen. Our team can provide you with helpful tips and tricks to help them break this habit.

Pulp Therapy

Pulp therapy is similar to a root canal, but on a smaller and more conservative scale. If your child has suddenly developed a painful toothache, it could be due to an untreated cavity or dental damage that provides harmful oral bacteria access to the vulnerable inner chamber of their tooth. Once it has reached the pulp, it can cause discomfort and require more advanced treatment. During pulp therapy, we’ll access the inner chamber of their tooth and remove the damaged pulp, easing their pain and preserving their tooth until it’s naturally ready to fall out.
