Children’s Dentistry in Magnolia and Houston, TX

Kids

We know that children have unique needs when it comes to their dental appointments. They need to feel comfortable with the team, they need to enjoy their surroundings, and they need to be spoken to in a way they can understand. At our Houston dentist offices, the Serenity Dental team works hard to help each and every child, and their parents, feel welcome and at home with us.

We accept CHIP and Medicaid. Call our office for details.

SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT

Pediatric Dental Treatments

In addition to general dentistry for adults, we also provide comprehensive care to our younger patients. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist when their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday. When your child is ready for his or her first appointment, give us a call to schedule their appointment. We also invite you to bring your child by the office before the appointment to meet our team.

We offer the following dental care for children of all ages (and their parents):

  • Pediatric Exams
  • Cleanings
  • Fluoride Treatments
  • Protective Dental Sealants
  • Athletic Mouthguards
  • Lessons on Proper Brushing & Flossing Techniques
  • Nutritional Guidance

FAQs

How often should my child visit the dentist?

We recommend you bring your child in every 6 months for exams and cleanings. This will help us stay on top of any potential problems before they become serious. If a different schedule is recommended, our team will let you know.

When will my child’s teeth come in?

The first set of teeth, called primary or baby teeth, typically start to erupt at around 6-8 months old. Front teeth will come in first, and molars will come in last (around 25-33 months). Your child will lose his or her teeth in the same order – front teeth at around 6-7 years old and back molars around 10-12 years old. Once a tooth falls out, a permanent tooth will erupt in its place.

Are primary teeth really that important?

Primary teeth serve a number of functions, including helping your child learn to chew properly, reserving space for permanent teeth to come in later, developing proper speech patterns, and allowing for normal development of the jawbone and surrounding muscles. Cavities and other such dental issues can cause pain, sensitivity, and even infection in primary teeth, just like they can in permanent teeth, so be sure to bring your child in regularly.

My child is scared of the dentist; what can I do to help?

The Serenity Dental team understands that going to the dentist can make children anxious, especially when it’s their first time or they’re going to a new dentist. We’ll greet your child with a smile and help him or her feel comfortable with us. Before you bring your child in, talk positively about the dentist; don’t make it sound like something to dread. Showing that you enjoy going to the dentist goes a long way in helping your child feel comfortable here, too.
