Regular Check-Ups and Dental Cleanings
Finding an office to provide your child with exceptional dental care that is both effective and comfortable can seem like a big responsibility. At Burleson Pediatric Dentistry, we offer the best dental care in a caring and compassionate environment so that your child has a good foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles!
Since we work only with children, we are uniquely equipped to help them feel comfortable and anxiety-free while they are with us. Our office is playful, bright, and interactive, making their dental appointments a fun learning experience.
We explain procedures to your children in language they will understand so it does not feel scary for them. Because our staff is expertly trained and experienced in pediatric dentistry, we work comfortably and at your child’s pace so that they learn to enjoy their dental appointments and look at them as part of their normal health care routine.
Dental decay is the number one chronic disease affecting young children in America today. In many cases, this condition is preventable with proper oral hygiene and regular check ups. We monitor the health of your child from their first birthday to look for potential challenges when it comes to dental caries (decay) or other common conditions. By maintaining regular check-ups, we can prevent many conditions from developing and treat them while they are smaller, less expensive, and easier to manage.
At your child’s exam, Dr. Chris Walton will gently examine your child’s teeth, gums, and development. He will keep you informed about any potential conditions and work with you, as the parent, on home care techniques, nutritional counseling, and what to expect as your child grows.
Professional Dental Cleanings
Aside from consistent and thorough home care, the best way to prevent decay is for your little one to have regular professional dental cleanings. No matter how thoroughly you brush your child’s teeth, food and plaque still collect in the hard-to-reach areas like between your child’s teeth and just beneath the gum line.
Our hygienists are gentle, thorough, and make each experience in our office a great one for kids. We offer encouragement and rewards, and make sure they feel comfortable so they will want to keep coming back for future appointments. We even have TVs at each chair so your child can watch their favorite show during their appointment!
Removing plaque and bacteria with professional dental cleanings helps to prevent decay and gum disease. We can also discuss brushing techniques once your child is old enough so that they can participate and learn to take ownership in their own oral care.
