Why Your Child May Need an Emergency Dentist

emergency-dentist20156At some point in their juvenescence, your child may need an emergency dentist. When people hear the term emergency dentist, their minds tend to automatically think about adult procedures like dental implants. For children, this treatment is unnecessary and unadvised, but that does not mean your child should not see an emergency dentist in Texas for a number of other ailments. Be prepared to help your child in a time of need by bringing them to our office. For some examples of how we can help your children, read below.

Rambunctious children are commonly involved in accidents that can chip or crack their developing teeth. You should take these injuries seriously as they can make your child’s tooth more vulnerable to bacteria or infection. Our office can provide you with an emergency dentist that can evaluate your child’s injury and determine what form of correction will protect the tooth from further damage or potential decay. It will also be helpful if you find the broken tooth piece and keep it moist until you can visit our office as one of our dentists can reattach the piece to the open area.

If the piece of the chipped tooth cannot be found or reattached, a dentist in our office can provide tooth-colored bonding or a crown to protect the vulnerable tooth. Our bonding is natural looking and resilient to staining and damage. If the chip is too large to be filled in by our quality bonding techniques, we can provide your child’s tooth with a protective crown that will look attractive and will serve as protection against any future harm.

Another common accident that children face is inadvertently biting their cheeks or tongue. While these types of incidents are common and, in most cases, not too serious, at times your child might need sutures. Sutures provided by an emergency dentist can prevent infection and developmental issues in your child’s tongue or cheeks. To alleviate discomfort and swelling for easier suture application, apply a cold press to the injured area until you get to our office.

With these sort of problems and many other dental conundrums that your child may face, our treatments will be smooth and comfortable so you child will not endure anxiety or worry when visiting our office. Additionally, we will provide adequate sedation and other analgesics to ensure your child does not experience any discomfort during treatment. Your child will feel safe and secure when visiting an emergency dentist.

We know your child’s health and oral care are top priorities to you. They are also a top priority for us. We will take all your child’s emergency dental needs seriously and provide your child with supportive and excellent dental care to ensure the further development of a healthy smile. Visit our emergency dentist office today so we can fix your children’s teeth during these imperative years.  If you have an emergency, we are happy to help you as well.

Visit Our Best Kid’s Dentist Office and Learn How to Keep Their Teeth Healthy

best-kids-dentist201510As one of the best kid’s dentist, the largest single challenge that we face does not come in the form of rare disease or children’s special developmental needs. The largest problem that most kid’s dentists face is the idea, which too many parents have, that children do not need to visit the dentist on a regular basis. The same parents that are often incredibly diligent about visiting the doctor, getting shots, and going in for regular checkups tend to forget that much of your health begins in the mouth. In a recent study, children of or under the age of one were studied; the study found that parents had taken their children to the pediatrician, at least once, in 89% of the children studied. When you look at oral health, only 1.5% of these kids had been into the best kid’s dentist. This is an alarming statistic as there are a growing number of cases of children with childhood decay, also known as pediatric dental disease. We have found that in children between the ages of two and five, decay can be found at a rate of 25%. When you increase the age of the children to between twelve and fifteen, the percentage of cases jumps to 50%. Half the children in middle school suffer from pediatric dental disease: something that is completely preventable with the right kind of care and allowing us to see your children’s teeth at a young age.
