Dental Care For Kids (Age 6-12) in McKinney, TX

byage7The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that your child get an orthodontic evaluation no later than age 7. At our McKinney, TX office, we will evaluate your child to see if phase I (interceptive) orthodontics is necessary. Your child is now in the mixed dentition phase (some baby teeth and some adult teeth). Normal adult (permanent) teeth eruption timing is as follows:   adult-teeth-eruption-timing

Recommendations:

  • Continue to see your dentist every 6 months for routine check-ups and cleanings.
  • Continue to brush twice a day and floss daily to prevent cavities.
  • You may want to use a fluoride mouthwash such as Act ® for additional benefits.
  • Sealants may be recommended to protect your child’s permanent teeth. It’s fast and very easy to apply!

Sealants

Thorough brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth. But toothbrush bristles cannot reach all the way into the depressions and grooves to extract food and plaque. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas by “sealing out” plaque and food. A sealant is a thin coating that your dentist can apply to your child’s teeth, to help strengthen the tooth and protect it from cavities. Sealants are completely safe, effective, and don’t take very long to apply. By applying a sealant to your child’s teeth, we can prevent fillings, and other dental issues, and help your child enjoy a lasting, beautiful, smile. sealantsprocess You can contact our McKinney, TX office here or call us at 972-547-4443 to schedule an appointment today!

  • I love this place.  The dentist is great but so is the staff and the ability to watch a movie while getting your teeth cleaned is a perk....My daughter loves to go in every month to get new colors for her bands.
    —Karen Vazquez
