Children's Dentistry in Stone Oak, TX
Since many family dentistry work with children, their offices look kid-friendly, and their treatments cater to kids. At EvoDent Dental, our younger patients are just as important as the adult ones that we treat. Here are some of the services we offer to help kids have healthy teeth.
Kids’ Size Tools
Adult dental tools are too big for some of our small patients, and it would be uncomfortable to treat them with oversized tools. Instead, our dentistry in Stone Oak, TX has tools that are the size of your child’s mouth. Since it takes a dexterous hand to use then, we have great dentists with many years of experience treating young dental patients.
The waiting area is arranged for young patients too. It has books, toys, and magazines that they can quietly read or share with others. If your family needs a dentist for everyone in the family, contact EvoDent Dental to find friendly, knowledgeable dentists who will keep everyone’s teeth healthy.
Dentists use several preventive treatments to help people maintain healthy smiles. The most popular one we use for kids is dental sealants. To help prevent tooth decay, our dentists in Stone Oak, TX apply dental sealant solutions to kids’ teeth about the time they are six or seven years old, or after their permanent teeth erupt.
The sealants prevent food particles from getting in-between teeth where it’s difficult to reach them with toothbrushes. The food breaks down and starts to grow bacteria that can cause decay. Also, the sealants keep sugars from sweet drinks from the coating and attacking teeth causing dental decay when those sugars stick to the teeth.
Invisalign®️ for Teens
Before Invisalign®️ improved their clear aligners, only adults had the opportunity to use them to correct their bites. Now preteens and teenagers can choose them for mild to moderate alignment issues instead of being stuck with metal braces.
There are many advantages to using clear aligners due to the material from which the company makes them. If a teen plays football, field hockey, or other sports, they can remove them for the duration of the game because Invisalign®️ only needs to stay in the mouth for 20 hours per day.
Our dentists at EvoDent Dental in Stone Oak, TX are glad to help small children to teenagers take great care of their teeth, whether it’s to put a sealant on their teeth or straighten their bites with Invisalign®️.
