Children's Dentistry

childrens dentist in Garland TX Dr. Sakunthala Boppana is a parent, too. She knows that children’s dentistry involves more than filling cavities. It is about protecting your child’s smile, cementing positive self-image, preserving oral health, and developing lifetime habits that reduce risk of whole-body illness and disease.

Why pediatric dental care is important

Baby’s dental care begins before the first tooth erupts and before the first dental appointment. Expectant mothers are prone to dental issues that may affect the wellbeing of the unborn child. Regular hygiene visits keep mom’s mouth healthy. Dr. Boppana also takes time to explain how to care for baby’s delicate mouth.

Then, she recommends a program of pediatric dental care. Why is this essential?
  • Safeguard baby teeth – Primary teeth serve as vital place-keepers for secondary teeth. In addition, diseased baby teeth can damage hidden permanent teeth that are still forming.
  • Prevent cavities – An estimated 42 percent of children have at least one cavity by age 11. By starting regular dental visits early and maintaining good habits at home, you child may never experience tooth decay!

  • Comfort and confidence – Diligent dental care allows Dr. Boppana to detect and treat problems that do occur, promptly. This helps your child avoid pain and embarrassment, and saves you money in the long term.
  • Watch for developmental problems – It is important to monitor how teeth are coming in, how jaws are developing, and bite alignment as your child grows. Dr. Boppana may delve into how the child breathes, sleeps, eats, and speaks. She may ask questions about headaches and concentration problems. In addition to physical examination and x-rays, behavioral factors give important clues that dental or orthodontic intervention could be needed.
  • Adolescent issues – As your child gets older, he or she will face many peer challenges that impact oral health. Dr. Boppana provides insight and guidance on situations such as tobacco use, alcohol and drugs, and eating disorders.
