At Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls, TX, we believe your child’s smile is precious and should receive as much dental attention as your own, and that’s why we offer pediatric dentistry. The ADA recommends parents begin attending to children’s dental care by age three. Consider bringing your kids with you to your dental appointment. Beginning at an early age, our dentists can teach them the importance of good oral hygiene and let them know they don’t have to be afraid of the dentist.
Our dentists and our friendly, gentle team love working with children, and we do our best to create a fun learning experience out of your child’s dental treatment. As part of our general family dentistry, we administer pediatric dentistry services to ensure your child’s teeth are developing properly, demonstrate effective brushing techniques and routines, and help prevent cavities. We not only evaluate their oral health and help them avoid decay, but the pediatric dentists at our Marble Falls family dentistry office will also teach your children the importance of caring for their teeth on a daily basis.
When you visit our Marble Falls office, we will take great care to prevent dental decay. Some kids may be susceptible to decay on hard-to-reach molars, but these teeth can be protected using dental sealants. Dental sealants are made of a thin plastic film and used to coat teeth that have been filled, prepared, cleaned, and etched. Dental sealants protect your child’s teeth by repelling food particles and cavity-causing bacteria. No pediatric dentistry treatment plan would be complete without dental sealants.
Because many families use bottled drinking water in their homes, which lacks fluoride, your children may be deficient in this vital mineral. Fluoride attracts other minerals to help fortify tooth enamel and defend against cavities. Dental sealants and fluoride supplements are easy preventive pediatric dentistry procedures that can keep your children’s teeth strong and healthy. Visit the dentists at Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls for complete cavity protection for your child’s smile.
