Our Spring Branch kids dentistry serve infants, children and teens with preventive dental care to help each child grow a beautiful and healthy smile that will last a lifetime.
Children should be seen by a dentist by the age of 1 for a short examination. The first visit is meant to allow the child have a positive relationship with the dentist, check for any problems with the child’s dental development, and mainly educate the parents about oral health care for their child.
Children will usually have their first dental X-rays taken by age 5 or 6, though some children may require X-rays to be taken earlier if the child is at a higher risk for dental decay. X-rays also allow dentists to see if a child’s adult teeth are growing correctly and to determine if there is abnormal development or possibly no development of permanent teeth.
