If you are looking for the very best pediatric dentist near Dallas, TX that accepts Medicaid, Hermosa Dental & Orthodontics is for you. Once your child turns 6 months old, they are ready to be seen by our expert team and one of our board-certified pediatric dentists!
We Have Board-Certified Pediatric Dentists On Staff
One of the many things that sets us apart from other area family dental practices is that we have board-certified pediatric dentists on staff at our office. Dentists that hold this special distinction regularly undergo additional, specialized training on the latest dental techniques and technologies for children.
Our friendly and fun dental team always takes the time to get to know each and every patient. We also use kid-friendly language to put children at ease and provide calming explanations along the way. We also provide patient education and personalized treatment plans so that your child knows exactly how they should care for their teeth in between appointments.
Our kids dental care service menu is as follows:
Your Child's First Dental Visit
Hermosa Dental & Orthodontics is designed with the whole family in mind, which is why the comfort of our pediatric patients are so important to us.
During your child's first dental visit, our pediatric dental specialists will conduct a thorough, yet gentle, examination, as well as x-rays to get a full picture of your child's oral health. As a parent, you are encouraged to accompany your child throughout the duration of their appointment and ask all of the questions you need answered.
From there, our kids dentists will design a treatment plan that addresses all of your child's needs!
Checkups and Preventative Care
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) advises that children be seen for a checkup every 6 months. During these routine visits, our pediatric dental specialists will ensure that your child's mouth is as healthy as it can be. If your child has existing dental conditions or orthodontic concerns, we may recommend more frequent checkups.
Protective Dental Sealants
Protective dental sealants are thin coats of plastic painted onto your child’s back teeth to them from cavities.
At Hermosa Dental & Orthodontics, we typically apply a protective sealant to your child’s back teeth, premolars and molars. The sealant should last several years and can save you hundreds or even thousands on restorative dental costs in the future!
We never want your child to suffer a cavity, but if they do, our kids dentists are here to restore the tooth to its original health. Our team treats cavities using safe, mercury-free tooth-colored dental fillings designed to perfectly match the rest of your child's smile.
Dental Crowns For Children
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped coverings cemented to a badly damaged tooth to restore the shape and functionality of the tooth. We may recommend a crown for your child’s tooth if it has a large cavity, was broken or chipped due to trauma, or if the tooth hasn’t developed correctly.
Wisdom Tooth Removal & Tooth Extractions For Kids
If your child's tooth is suffering from bad decay, or is being crowded by other teeth and cannot erupt, our board-certified pediatric dentists may recommend a gentle extraction to clear room in your child's mouth for healthy growth.
For older children, wisdom tooth extractions may be recommended if their third molars are not erupting, coming in at an angle, or are impacted.
Sedation Dentistry For Kids In Dallas, TX
If your child is very young, suffers from anxiety in the dental chair, or has special healthcare needs, we can offer sedation to make their appointment a stress-free one. Before administering the medication, we'll take into account your child's entire health history.
Special Needs Dentist For Kids
Our kids dentists' board-certifications mean that each has received extra training in dentistry for special healthcare needs. If you have any questions about their qualifications, feel free to contact our children's dental center prior to your appointment.
