The goal for Dr. Patel and the team at Studio Dental of Chisholm Trail is to make your child’s dental visits not just productive, but comfortable and fun as well! Whether they need a basic teeth cleaning or a dental filling placed, establishing a positive relationship with dentistry early makes all the difference in the world. We can assure you that when they arrive, they’ll be met with a warm, friendly greeting and a team that keeps them in mind. Contact our dental office to schedule their first appointment for children's dentistry in Fort Worth, TX!
If it is your child’s first appointment, it’s important to keep in mind that most of the visit will be catered towards discussing important at-home oral care habits, future treatments to consider, and how their diet can influence their oral health. Of course, we’ll also take a moment to thoroughly examine their mouth and make sure no obvious issues are present. As they get used to their routine visits, we’ll slowly introduce the process of performing detailed teeth cleanings and dental exams.
One of the most common treatments provided for young patients is dental sealants. These are designed to prevent the formation of tooth decay and cavities, which can potentially lead to teeth falling out sooner than they should. Dental sealants are made of a plastic resin, a material that fills deep grooves on teeth and forms a protective film over the teeth, particularly teeth that are vulnerable to decay like the molars and premolars. With just one application, these teeth can stay protected for up to 10 years.
All children need to have their oral health maintained. If your child has special needs, they require a specific level of care that is more personalized and accommodating. Dr. Patel asks that you call us ahead of time so that we can most effectively meet their needs. Our team is always patient and will do whatever we can to make sure your child’s visit is always positive, productive and above all else, comfortable.
While it is not common, your child’s teeth can be damaged to the point where the pulp is compromised. The pulp is the tissue that sits at the center of the tooth and is responsible for transferring important nutrients that keep it healthy. If the pulp is damaged in any way, it can cause the tooth to fail and eventually require extraction. During pulp therapy, Dr. Patel carefully removes infected tissue, all while making sure that your child is comfortable during treatment.
