At McAllen Family Dentistry in McAllen, TX, we teach our patients that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Good oral hygiene habits should start at an early age. Therefore, we recommend continued routine dental care for our pediatric patients. Continuing care allows us to monitor your child’s oral health, administer necessary dental treatments and educate your child about proper oral hygiene.
Even though primary teeth are in use for a short time, it is still very important that children care for this first set properly. They are used for speech development, talking, chewing and holding space for permanent adult teeth.
Continuing care at our McAllen dental clinic we believe that pediatric dental care is extremely important for developing children. We teach kids how to brush and floss properly and practice good oral care habits. Our kid-friendly staff will discuss healthy food choices and bad habits to avoid better dental health.
As your child grows older and changes, your McAllen dentist will monitor his or her entire mouth. As development occurs, we will promptly treat any issues that may arise. Problems with teeth spacing or misalignment may require orthodontic braces. We also offer professional fluoride treatments and dental sealants for added protection against tooth decay and cavities.
