Providing outstanding service for the younger members of the family is one of our top priorities at Dental Professionals of Spring. You can count on us for top-quality pediatric dentistry in Spring, Texas.
Pediatric dentistry refers to dental treatment that is provided for children and teens. Younger patients are unique when it comes to oral care, and our team is committed to meeting their unique needs. We offer a full lineup of pediatric dentistry services and treatments to help your child achieve great dental health and a beautiful smile. Getting started early will give your child the best chance of maintaining a lifetime of excellent oral health. Our practice offers sealants, fluoride applications, fillings, crowns and emergency dentistry for children.
Sealants are an acrylic plastic coating that is painted over the chewing surface of the molars. This protective outer layer keeps out any acids and harmful bacteria that can access the teeth and cause damage. Another benefit of sealants is that they smooth out rough surfaces and make the teeth easier to brush and floss. This can be particularly helpful for young children who are still developing proper oral care practices.
Fluoride applications represent a preventive treatment in which fluoride is applied directly to the teeth. The fluoride is allowed to rest on the child’s teeth for a few minutes before it is removed. The child should then avoid eating or drinking anything for the next hour so that their teeth absorb the substance. Fluoride offers proven benefits for teeth, including the ability to strengthen enamel and reverse the early effects of decay. Dental Professionals of Spring offers options for varnish, gel and foam fluoride applications.
A filling is a restorative treatment used to repair teeth damaged by cavities or decay. Cavities are extremely common in children, especially those with high sugar intake. A filling will seal off the void that has developed in the tooth and offer the structure some much-needed strength. Fillings are very easy to provide, and the process can usually be completed in a single visit. After treatment, the look and function of your child’s tooth will be restored. Our practice provides tooth-colored composite fillings.
Dental crowns are restorations provided when teeth are lost or severely damaged. Each crown is custom-designed based on the child’s existing teeth so that it blends in seamlessly and offers the best possible functionality. Our crowns are long-lasting, and they offer outstanding performance in chewing tough foods. We offer support for porcelain crowns.
Emergency dentistry treatment is any procedure provided on short notice. Your child may require emergency dentistry if they chip a tooth, experience an oral health injury or develop a sudden toothache. Our staff will do their very best to accommodate your child as soon as possible. We will do our best to provide same-day treatment.
