A lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles begins with your child’s first visit with our pediatric dentist 77498. At Swan Dental, we recommend bringing your child in for periodic checkups as soon as her or his first tooth erupts. Our compassionate, gentle team of professionals makes every visit an engaging learning experience and provides personalized attention to help your child feel most at ease.
Each year, across the United States children lose a total of 51 school hours due to dental disease. With our back to school checkups, our pediatric dentist 77498 can help to keep your child’s teeth healthy and cavity-free to avoid discomfort or setbacks due to dental problems all year round. During your child’s back to school visit, we provide a thorough examination to assess their oral health and a professional teeth cleaning to remove plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach crevices of the mouth. A teeth cleaning is also an opportunity for us to teach your child about the importance and responsibility of maintaining excellent oral hygiene. We will teach your child the best techniques for brushing and flossing, and emphasize the importance of making the right dietary and lifestyle choices. Once your child’s permanent molars come in, we can provide dental sealants, which are protective coatings painted on the biting surfaces of your child’s back teeth to seal out plaque and food debris. Dental sealants can reduce your child’s risk of cavities by up to 80%. We also provide our pediatric patients with fluoride treatments, which help prevent the erosion of tooth enamel. As part of your child’s checkup, our dentist will thoroughly examine the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, tracking their growth and development, and diagnosing adverse conditions early on, when they are easiest to treat.
At Swan Dental, we make dental care a positive experience, giving your child the tools to enjoy excellent oral health through her or his life. With a focus on preventive care, our pediatric dentist 77498 aims to help your child spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and more learning and having fun.
