Preventative Care

Preventive dental care at East Texas Children’s Dentistry is a great way to ensure a lifetime of beautiful smiles. Children should see the dentist twice a year, around their first birthday and again by age two. Since teeth begin forming before birth (and some babies are born with teeth), we recommend that children see our doctors as soon as they’re able. We’ll also recommend preventive measures to help keep your little one’s smile healthy!

During routine check-ups, we take the time to educate your child on proper hygiene techniques and healthy oral habits. Our hygienist will clean your child’s teeth, and one of our dentists will perform a complete examination to wrap up the appointment. If the dentist has reason to recommend additional restorative services, they will explain possible treatments and next steps.

Restorative Care

If your child requires additional dental care, our doctors will determine the prescribed treatment following your child’s dental exam, answer your questions, and have our staff schedule the next appointment. Our team will do their best to preserve your child’s primary teeth until they are lost naturally by utilizing modern dental techniques.

Restorative dental care can help you protect your child’s smile. It focuses on preventing future dental problems, early diagnosing and treating cavities, poor oral health, and misaligned teeth. Restorations are also used to fill in decayed areas.

At East Texas Children’s Dentistry, we now have a Salea Laser machine. It can be used for various dental procedures, but most importantly, it eliminates the drill, noise, and pain of dental procedures. With the laser, patients don’t have to be numbed and can receive care without anesthesia.

Dental Sealants

If you want to protect your child’s teeth from cavities, dental sealants (sometimes called “cavity-fighting sealants”) are the way to go. They keep plaque and bacteria from building up on your child’s permanent molars — a big risk factor for tooth decay. The sealant acts like a shield that prevents damaging acids produced by plaque from damaging tooth enamel.

Emergency Care

Dental emergencies can be traumatic and painful. If your child is experiencing an emergency or an accident involving their teeth, we are available for emergency care. Call us immediately at 903-577-9900, and we will schedule an appointment for them as soon as possible. If you call after hours, please follow the instructions on the voicemail message on how to contact us.

Hospital Care
Some pediatric patients require hospitalization for their dental care. Whether they have an abundance of dental work that needs to be done, they can’t tolerate sitting for treatment at the office and require anesthesia, or they have special needs, dental care in the hospital is sometimes the best option. Our doctors provide sedation dentistry under general anesthesia at Titus Regional Medical Center (TRMC).
