Is my Child a Candidate Pediatric Dentistry?

Children and adolescents up through the age of 18 are candidates for pediatric dentistry. We encourage parents to bring their children in for an initial dental visit during their first year of life, as suggested by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Our dentists can then help decide when the next dental visit should be scheduled. Since kids have their baby teeth for several years, it is imperative to maintain good oral health as they grow and develop. ACE Dental of Hewitt offers a range of pediatric services, such as cleanings and sealants to help prevent decay, and pulpotomies and stainless steel crowns to restore teeth that are decayed or infected. We also provide tooth extractions, urgent dental care, and Invisalign® Teen to treat your child's dental needs.

What Can I Expect During My CHild's Visit?

Our fun, friendly team strives to make every dental visit positive and stress-free for kids and teens. In general, we recommend bringing your children in at least two times a year for regular teeth cleanings and exams. During your child's first visit, our dentists can talk with you about thumb-sucking, teething, early-childhood decay, or other concerns you may have. At some appointments, we may take low-radiation digital x-rays to screen for hidden cavities, impacted teeth, or developmental issues. Your child's teeth will be cleaned, polished, and evaluated for tooth decay and other concerns. We may also suggest fluoride treatments or sealants to help reduce your child's risk of developing dental cavities.

How Can I Care For My Child's Smile After Their Visit?

At the end of your child's dental visit, our team will talk with you about any restorative dentistry needs, orthodontic concerns, or other conditions that may require care. We can help you establish a treatment plan for your child and set up any necessary visits, including their six-month cleaning and exam appointment. A member of our Hewitt, TX team can also discuss the importance of keeping up with good oral hygiene and demonstrate the best way to brush and floss your child's teeth. Through routine dental care, you can help your child or teen develop ideal oral habits early in life so they may enjoy the long-term benefits of a healthy smile.

Is Pediatric Dentistry Covered Under Insurance?

A wide range of pediatric dental services, including routine cleanings and exams, are often covered by dental insurance providers. Our business team will review your child's insurance plan and let you know of any potential treatment costs. Along with offering affordable dental care options, ACE Dental of Hewitt accepts several convenient payment methods and can assist you in exploring financial solutions to match your family's needs and budget.

Pediatric Dentistry FAQ

What is the difference between pediatric dentistry and general dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is focused on children, their teeth, and their specific needs. At ACE Dental of Hewitt, our team aims to offer dental care in an environment where the child feels safe, comfortable, and excited about visiting the dentist.

What happens during my child’s first visit to the dentist?
For most first-time patients, their first dental visit is quick and easy. Our main priority is getting to know your child and providing you with basic information on proper oral hygiene for children. Our team will check for any potential issues and the placement of your child's teeth.

How can I prepare my child for their first dental appointment?
We don't have to tell you that children are like sponges — one of the best ways to help prepare your child for their first visit to the dentist is to have a positive attitude about the experience. We highly recommend showing your child pictures of the dentist they will be seeing and our office so they can become familiar with their surroundings. Our dentists frequently handle dental fears and anxieties and will do their best to make sure you and your child feel comfortable.
