As a parent, you want to do everything possible to help your child achieve excellent oral health. The team at Alice Dental Associates will help you build a foundation that can lead to a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
Just like adults, children and teens need proper oral care if they want to keep a beautiful smile. We offer pediatric services and treatments that are specifically for our younger patients. Our team understands how a young person’s teeth grow and develop, and we know exactly what your child needs to do to keep up with their oral health. Whether your child or teen needs a routine checkup or a specialty service, Alice Dental Associates can provide the best pediatric dentistry in Alice, Texas.
When a child or teen visits Alice Dental Associates, we work to ensure that they are kept comfortable and entertained while also receiving the best possible service. We take great pride in our family-friendly atmosphere. Young patients love the fact that all our patient rooms feature Netflix for them to watch and enjoy. We can also offer pillows and blankets if your child ever feels nervous or scared, and they are sure to appreciate our relaxing amenities. Meanwhile, parents will love our family scheduling options that make it convenient to schedule appointments for all their children at the same time.
We offer a variety of treatments and services designed with younger patients in mind. Our pediatric dental services include sealants, crowns, fluoride applications and fillings.
Dental sealants can protect your child’s teeth from the bacteria, tartar and plaque that can cause cavities. Sealants are an acrylic coating that is carefully painted over the teeth to create a barrier. Sealants are particularly helpful for young children since their teeth tend to feature deeper grooves and fissures that make them prone to cavities and decay.
A dental crown is provided when a child or teen has severely damaged a tooth.
Any remaining structure will be “capped” with the dental crown, which will serve as the bulk of the tooth. Every crown is custom-designed so that it blends in with the child’s or teen’s existing teeth. These restorations are very durable, and they should last for many years if proper care is provided.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring substance that has proven benefits in strengthening tooth enamel and reversing the early effects of tooth decay. By applying fluoride directly to a child’s teeth, they are less likely to experience cavities. The procedure is very quick and painless, and it can often be completed alongside a regular checkup.
Cavities are relatively common, especially in children. If your child has a cavity, we use dental fillings to repair the damage and keep the tooth healthy moving forward. This procedure involves removing any decay and applying a filling substance directly to the cavity. The substance will seal off the opening and provide the injured tooth with some much-needed strength.
