Who Is a Candidate for Pediatric Dentistry?
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), kids should take their first trip to the dentist prior to turning a year old. After this visit, the dentists at ACE Dental of Belton can suggest when the next checkup should be scheduled. Since young patients have their baby teeth for several years, it is important for them to maintain good oral health throughout childhood. Our comprehensive practice offers preventive care, like sealants and cleanings, to help guard against cavities, along with pulpotomies, stainless steel crowns, and other services to meet restorative needs. From Invisalign Teen to tooth extractions, and urgent dental care, we provide the pediatric dentistry needed to care for the smiles of your children and teens.
What occurs during Pediatric Dental Visits?
Our team strives to make dental visits positive, fun, and care-free for kids of all ages and recommend that children and teens attend preventive care visits for dental cleanings and exams at least twice each year. At your little one's very first visit, our dentists can help with concerns like baby bottle tooth decay, thumb-sucking, and teething. Low-radiation digital x-rays may be taken at certain visits as your child grows so we can evaluate tooth eruption, check for hidden cavities, and screen for developmental issues. During routine visits, we'll also check for tooth decay and clean your child's teeth. We also provide preventive measures like fluoride treatments and dental sealants to protect your child's teeth against cavities.
How Can I Help My Child Maintain Good oral Health?
At the end of each visit, we'll review any recommendations for dental treatment, such as restorative dental care or orthodontics, with you. We can also assist you in setting up any follow-up appointments for your child's care as well as their next check-up visit. Throughout the cleaning and exam, our team will show you and your child the best way to floss and brush their teeth and discuss the importance of keeping up with good oral hygiene. You can help your little one develop good dental habits early in life and enjoy long-term oral health by bringing them into ACE Dental of Belton for routine dental care.
Does Insurance Cover Pediatric Dentistry?
Many dental insurance plans offer coverage for regular check-ups and other pediatric dentistry services. Our billing specialist will review your child's insurance benefits and help you maximize coverage for their care. If any portion remains uncovered, ACE Dental of Belton will work with you to find an affordable option that fits within your family's budget. We want your child to enjoy the benefits of a healthy smile and can help you find a comfortable payment solution.
