Pediatric Dentistry in Midwest City, OK
Good dental habits should start young, and this is why we like to see kids in our office shortly after their first tooth erupts.
Children who see the dentist regularly tend to grow into adults who continue to see the dentist regularly. Kids who start going to the dentist when they are young also tend to have less anxiety about seeing the dentist when they are grown up.
At Diamond Dental, we love working with kids! We’ll do everything we can to ensure they have a pleasant experience.
Your Child’s First Visit to the Dentist
We know the sights and sounds of the dentist’s office can be a bit scary—even for adults. Your child’s first visit is designed to teach him or her what the dentist is all about—and that there is nothing to fear.
In your child’s first spin in the dental chair, Dr. Amaya will examine your child’s teeth in such a way as to keep anxiety at bay. He will not do anything that makes your child upset or uncomfortable.
Depending on your child’s age, he will take some time to educate the patient—or the parents—on proper brushing and flossing technique. If you have any questions about your child’s oral health, he will take the time to discuss those concerns.
Preventive Care for Your Child
Good dental health is built on a foundation of preventive care. We will talk to you about ways to create a successful home care routine for your child that includes avoiding sugary foods and drinks and eating a healthy diet.
Examinations and cleaning appointments twice each year are a complement to good home care. We can talk to you about the possibility of additional preventive treatments, including fluoride and sealants.
Dental sealants help prevent decay in the back molars, where deep grooves often make kids more susceptible to cavities. The sealants help prevent food particles from sticking to those spots that are particularly difficult to reach with normal brushing and flossing.
Less expensive than fillings and completely non-invasive, dental sealants are a great way to protect your child’s teeth from cavities.
Advanced Technology to Make Visits Easier and More Comfortable
We pride ourselves on maintaining an office that provides creature comforts to make kids happy and advanced dental technology to make their visit quick and efficient.
We offer digital x-rays to ensure we are getting a complete overview of your child’s dental health.
