Who Is a Candidate for Pediatric Dental Services?
Children of all ages are candidates for pediatric dentistry, from infancy up through the late teen years. We encourage parents to bring their children in for an initial visit during the first year of life, as suggested by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and then as recommend by our seasoned dentists. Since kids will keep many of their baby teeth for several years, it is important to maintain good oral health all throughout childhood and adolescence. ACE Dental of New Braunfels provides one-stop pediatric care, from cleanings and sealants for cavity prevention to pulpotomies and stainless steel crowns to restore decayed teeth. Other services we offer include emergency dentistry, Invisalign Teen orthodontics, and gentle tooth extractions.
What To Expect During Pediatric Dental Visits
In general, our dentists recommend that kids and teens visit our New Braunfels, TX practice at least two times a year for routine dental exams and cleanings. Our energetic, caring team strives to ensure every pediatric dental visit is positive, fun, and especially stress-free. For younger children, we can provide assistance with teething, baby bottle tooth decay, finger-sucking, and other common concerns. At your child's dental visit, we will evaluate for cavities, and clean and polish their teeth. Low-radiation digital x-rays might also be taken at certain visits so our dentists can identify hidden tooth decay and evaluate tooth eruption patterns. To help protect against cavities, we might also recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatments.
How Can My Child Maintain Good Oral Hygiene?
At the end of your child's check-up visit, our team will talk with you about any treatment recommendations, such as restorative needs or orthodontic care. We will also educate your child on the importance of healthy dental habits and show them the best techniques to use when flossing and brushing. A member of our friendly staff can also assist you in scheduling follow-up appointments, including your child's six-month cleaning visit. Bringing your child in for routine care at ACE Dental of New Braunfels can go a long way in helping them establish good oral hygiene early in life and keeping their smile healthy as they grow.
Does Insurance Cover Pediatric Dental Visits?
Pediatric dental services are often covered (at least in part) by many dental insurance plans. A member of our billing team will review your child's benefits ahead of time and let you know of any anticipated treatment costs. At ACE Dental of New Braunfels, we want all kids to enjoy good oral health and accept several affordable payment solutions.
