Dental office near Plano, TX delivers quality kids dental care
At Perfect 32 Family Dentistry, we provide care to patients of all ages including kids’ dental services. Our hope is that through positive visits we can establish a trusting, long-lasting relationship with your child that will lead to a lifetime of oral health and wellness. Our goal is for all our younger patients to have a positive association with the dental office and learn how to properly care for their teeth and gums. By providing a kid-friendly atmosphere and age-appropriate communication, we make this goal a reality every day.
Research has shown that by beginning regular dental care at an early age, children are more likely to grow up with good oral health that will remain throughout their lives. Early appointments are especially helpful in preventing cavities and tooth decay, which can cause pain and further medical issues. In addition, regular dental care for children helps them chew better, speak clearer, and share their beautiful smiles with confidence.
We recommend regular dental exams and cleanings every six months for children starting after the emergence of the first tooth or by the age of one, whichever comes first. These regularly scheduled cleanings help ensure the teeth and gums remain healthy and keeps your child cavity-free. Professional dental cleanings remove built up tartar and plaque, which can lead to decay and inflammation if untreated. During these appointments we work with children on proper techniques for at-home dental care and monitor the development of the teeth and bite. If necessary, we may recommend orthodontic evaluation at the appropriate age if we notice issues with teeth, jaw, or bite alignment.
Fluoride is a substance that can prevent decay and strengthen teeth. We use fluoride treatments for children as an extra safeguard against cavities in still developing teeth.
Decay often begins to develop in the grooves and crevices of the back teeth because the surface areas are difficult to properly clean. Sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are placed on these teeth for an extra layer of protection.

When cavities do develop, we offer composite resin (tooth-colored fillings). During this proedure, the dentist will remove the decayed area of the tooth and then fill it with the safe, natural looking material. Composite fillings are strong and fracture resistant.
If a tooth develops decay deep in the pulp chamber of the tooth it can quickly become inflamed and cause your child pain. The pulpotomy procedure allows us to save the natural tooth until it falls out on its own. During the procedure, we first numb the area and remove the damaged area of the tooth along with the diseased pulp. The entire area is cleaned out and the hole is sealed off with filling material. A dental crown is placed on top of the tooth to fully restore functionality.
Dental emergencies happen, and we want to be there for you when the situation arises. We can help with issues such as toothaches, fractured teeth, knocked out teeth, and more. If your child experiences an emergency, call our office and we can determine whether the situation requires prompt attention. In many cases, we have same day appointments available in case of an emergency.
