Dental exams and cleanings should be part of everyone’s routine, adult and child alike. Here at Tucker Family Dentistry, we provide this service for children so that you can stay out in front of any potential issues or concerns, which includes the smooth transition from baby (primary) teeth to adult (permanent) ones.

The reason that our 78641 pediatric dentist should see your child two times per year is largely to deal with the effects of dental plaque, the film-like bacterial substance that grows on and between teeth, as well as at the gum line. And while it is well known that children are prone to cavities, it is not as understood that kids often are affected by gum disease, too. Plaque is more prominent when there is a greater consumption of sugar, so it is recommended that you keep a close watch on how much of it your child consumes. Our 78641 pediatric dentist will show your child how to brush and floss effectively, and work with him or her, as well as with you, to establish healthy habits that will last a lifetime. The reality, though, is that some plaque tends to evade the reach of your child’s oral hygiene regimen, hardening into tartar, which cannot be efficiently removed with brushing and flossing. Fortunately, our teeth cleanings take care of that. It’s like hitting the reset button on oral wellness. X-rays will reveal any cavities, so that they can be filled promptly, instead of increasing your child’s risk for a toothache and possible early loss of a tooth.

Our 78641 pediatric dentist will be your partner in looking after every essential aspect of your child’s dental health. And it only takes one visit every six months to do it. While it’s on your mind, why not call our office right now? Schedule an appointment to come in for her or his dental exam and cleaning.
