At Canyon Creek Family Dentistry of Richardson, we’re proud to offer a comfortable and caring atmosphere for patients of all ages – including ones who still have their baby teeth! Our doctors always take a gentle and kind approach with children in order to help them feel at ease, and our pediatric services are designed to help smiles grow strong and confident as the years go by.
Here in Richardson, parents can also look forward to available evening and weekend appointment times that help keep the kids from missing too much school. Contact us today to schedule first appointments for the whole family.
Just like adults, children should be attending regular dental checkups by the age of three, which is usually when all of their primary (“baby”) teeth have erupted. During these visits, we will carefully and thoroughly review their oral health to ensure that there is no tooth decay or injury that needs to be addressed. We will also take a look at their overall oral development in order to identify any troubling trends that could be avoided if they’re cared for early enough.
As your child grows, their dental care will evolve with them. Our doctors will start providing valuable preventive services like a fluoride treatment that strengthens enamel and dental sealants that protect hard-to-reach teeth from harmful bacteria. Once they’re old enough, we will also teach them everything they need to know about brushing and flossing at home.
