Pediatric dentistry can help your child's smile.
Your child is special, and you want your child's dental care to be special too. You need a dentist who can take great care of your child's smile. Dr. Whitson offers dentistry for your entire family, including pediatric dental services to help your child's smile.
A child's first official dental appointment should be around the age of 3. However, we encourage parents to bring their kids to their cleanings for an unofficial visit after the age of 1. This will get them comfortable coming into the office. The truth is, your child is in danger of tooth decay the minute the first tooth erupts.
Dr. Whitson provides a calm, relaxed atmosphere that will put your child at ease. A great first visit is important because it provides the foundation for subsequent visits. You want your child to feel comfortable coming to the dentist.
Your highly skilled, compassionate dental care providers offer comprehensive pediatric dentistry services, including:
* Dental examinations and x-rays, to determine what treatment your child needs to maintain a healthy smile
* Dental cleanings, to remove any plaque, tartar, and stains from your child's teeth
* Fluoride treatments, to help strengthen tooth enamel and prevent dental decay
Pediatric restorative services include tooth-colored fillings which blend with your child's teeth to keep their smile looking beautiful. For severe decay, your dentist may recommend a dental crown.
For teens who want a straighter smile, Dr. Whitson offers Invisalign, the virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. Invisalign uses clear dental appliances known as aligners. These aligners are comfortable and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.
Your child deserves the best in dental care. To find out more about pediatric dentistry services and how they can help your child's smile, call Dr. Whitson at (314) 842-2038 today!
