Creating Healthy Habits Early
With Pediatric Dentistry
in Austin & Georgetown, TX
Rivery Dental has the best Pediatric dentist in town. Starting a child early with regular dental exams and care can mean a lifetime of better oral health. From the time of a child’s first tooth, the pediatric dentist can help start patterns of eating and hygiene that can protect against early tooth decay, as well as tooth alignment and gum problems in adulthood.
In addition to regular cleanings, a pediatric dentist can apply sealants to protect young teeth from decay. The dentist can also help select mouth guards to prevent sports injuries, and provide timely diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic problems. Rivery Dental welcomes children of all ages and will make their visit more fun!
Dental sealants are a great tool for preventing cavities in hard-to-reach areas. They are typically recommended for children between ages 6 and 14, but patients of virtually all ages can benefit from their application. Dental sealants are made from specially designed dental resin or plastic. They are carefully applied in liquid form onto the teeth in a thin layer. The sealant then quickly hardens and bonds directly onto the tooth, sometimes with the aid of a curing light. Sealants can remain effective for as long as a decade, but they still be checked for wear during every dental check-up.Request Appointment
