Alvin, TX Dentist
When it comes to your family’s health, you schedule a regular checkup for every member, including your kids. While some families choose to see the same general practitioner, others choose to see a pediatrician for their kids.
With dental care, the same concept applies. Your entire family can see one dentist, but it is more beneficial for your children to see a pediatric dentist like Alvin Smiles.
Healthy teeth for a lifetime begin with good dental practices, and we at Alvin Smiles take care of that. Proper oral care has a significant effect on your child’s overall health and plays an integral part in preventing tooth decay and diseases. So, give your child’s teeth a solid foundation by bringing them in the dentist’s office for a routine examination and cleaning twice a year. Also, work with your child to improve the dental hygiene routine and encourage them to listen to the dental team during their appointment.
Optimal Oral Health for your Child
At Alvin Smiles, we strive to provide superior dental care to children, from infancy through adolescence, including children with special needs. Our excellent care for each patient helps achieve and maintain optimal oral health for a lifetime.
Children fear going to a dentist’s office due to strange smells and scary drill noises, but at Alvin Smiles, we create a welcoming, friendly, and upbeat atmosphere to help your child feel calm during the dental appointment. Also, they will understand the significance of practicing good dental hygiene habits and put them into action from the start. To help your child achieve this, we are dedicated to:
- Eliminate the fear most kids relate with dental care by providing care in a fun, relaxed, and non-intimidating environment.
- Provide each child and their parent with dental hygiene information so you can practice preventive dental care skills at home to ensure healthy teeth now and in the future.
- Provide gentle dental treatment to infants, children, teens, and those with special needs.
Services We Offer
Early Dental Care
We believe that oral health and hygiene should begin at a young age. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises that children be scheduled for oral assessment within six months when the first tooth appears but no later than their first birthday. By taking your child to the dentist from a young age, you can ensure that your child’s teeth develop properly. We also instill lifelong habits of taking care of their teeth and gums.
One of the most common chronic childhood illnesses in the U.S. today is tooth decay, therefore, the best ways to achieve optimal oral health is through prevention. We will teach you and your child how to correctly brush and floss their teeth as they grow and discuss dental hygiene habits to follow along with food choices that keep the teeth and gums healthy. We will work with your child to ensure their mouth and teeth are always healthy. We also ensure that you are familiar of all your child’s oral issues and dental procedures.
Even with diligent oral hygiene practices, sometimes restorative dentistry is needed. During each visit, we carefully examine your child’s mouth and teeth for any potential issues and gently repair the teeth, restoring the function, strength, and appearance. Restorative treatments include fillings, dental crowns, bonding, and pulp treatment.
From routine dental care to advanced dental treatments, like baby root canal, baby tooth extraction, stainless steel crown, space maintainers, etc., our Texas kids dental office covers all the care your child needs to smile with confidence.
