About Pediatric Dental Care
Oral health is vital for each member of the family, no matter their age. At Trusted Dental Care, we invite parents to make their child's first visit to the dentist before their first birthday. From there, we recommend that parents bring their children to the dentist at least twice per year for cleanings and examinations. Our goal is to give your child a fun and relaxing trip to our Wylie, TX practice so they may establish a positive association with visiting the dentist that will last the rest of their life. Throughout their dental appointment, general dentist Dr. Fesaha Gebrehiwot and our caring team will assess the growth of their teeth, screen for problems or areas of concern, and educate them on the best way to keep a proper oral care routine at home. To learn more information on pediatric dental care for your infant, child, or teen, contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. G. today.
Pediatric Dentistry Reviews
"Our family dentist shut down in 2019, so we had to find another. I chose Trusted Dental Care since it was very close to our house. Let me tell you, what a great choice! In February 2020, our then 10 year old chipped her front tooth playing with our dogs. She was in a lot of pain. The next day we scheduled an emergency appointment. After a relatively short procedure, Dr. G repaired her tooth. I looked and looked, and looked again, but I could not see or tell that her tooth was ever chipped! I sat there in total disbelief! Fast forward to July 2020 when it was my turn for some work. Needed three teeth extracted. One of the three was in really bad shape and next to a major nerve. Dr G made it very clear that I may need to see a specialist if he couldn't get the whole tooth out. Long story short, he got it all out. The next morning, I woke up with very little pain. Didn't need Advil or pain meds at all. We have visited the office 5 or 6 times, and the staff have always been accommodating. They are very patient, friendly, and sincerely care about their patients. I highly recommend Trusted Dental Care."- A.H. / Google / Aug 05, 2020
Your Child's Dental Needs
Children can develop cavities (tooth decay) even at a young age. To help protect the smiles of those you love most, Trusted Dental Care offers preventive treatments like fluoride and sealants to help preserve the health of the teeth and minimize decay. Your child will have their baby (primary) teeth for several years, so it is important to keep their mouth in good health while the permanent teeth grow in. Along with maintaining good oral care at home, we recommend scheduling visits at least two times every year for examinations and cleanings. During their dental checkup visits, Dr. G. will evaluate for any concerns, like cavities, bite misalignment, jaw development and growth, eruption patterns, and discuss treatment options to best meet your child's current and future needs.
Positive Pediatric Dental Care
We believe that visiting the dentist should be a fun, positive experience and do everything possible to help your child enjoy their time with us. This helps create a foundation that can serve your child's smile over their lifetime. Unless visiting for a specific concern, your child's first appointment will include a dental exam and cleaning. Digital x-rays, which are safer and easier than traditional x-rays, may also be taken to that Dr. G. can screen for hidden dental concerns. A fluoride treatment may be applied following their cleaning to help strengthen the teeth and minimizing the risk of cavities. When your child's permanent molars have erupted, Dr. G. may recommend dental sealants to help protect these teeth against decay. Any teeth that show signs of decay or are chipped, damaged, or broken will be addressed as necessary and in the most conservative way possible. As your child gets older, Dr. G. may recommend orthodontics to straighten their teeth and correct the bite, which may prevent future dental problems. Regardless of your child's needs, we will create a customized treatment plan to help them enjoy a healthy smile.
Maintain Your Child's Smile
If Dr. G. finds an issue during your child's dental examination or cleaning, he may recommend that you schedule a follow-up appointment for a procedure. After the exam and cleaning, Dr. G. will speak with you and your child about the most important steps in a dental hygiene regimen: daily flossing and brushing. He and our team will also demonstrate techniques on the correct method to brush and floss to help keep their teeth healthy and strong between dental visits. Since children do not fully develop the ability to brush and floss properly until a later age, we suggest that you assist your child with their home care efforts, especially in the younger years.
Generally, both dental exams and cleanings are covered by most dental insurance plans. If a restorative procedure or other treatment is recommended, our front desk staff will get in touch with your provider to learn about your coverage and determine any personal expenses. Trusted Dental Care is pleased to accept a variety of payment methods, including no-or-low interest financing solutions, to help you get the care your child needs for a bright and healthy smile.
