Your child will receive a thorough exam by our pediatric dentist Dr. Peiravani. We will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and give you guidance on how we can work together with your family at home.
Our registered dental hygienist or doctor will remove buildup, stains, and polish your child's teeth.
A varnish will be applied. This may leave a clear film on your child's teeth and may last for a few hours. We recommend waiting 30 minutes before eating, drinking, or rinsing. Also, no brushing that evening. Fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel.
Pictures will be taken on an individual basis, as needed. Our digital radiographs are safer than traditional films. We follow guidelines set forth by the AAPD for prescribing radiographs.
Oral Hygiene Instructions:
We take time to show your child proper brushing and flossing. We can also advise on techniques to help with your child's home care.
Early Dental Visits
The AAPD recommends that a child visit the dentist by the age of 1. This is more of a visit for the parents so we can discuss dental development and growth, home care, nutrition, habits, etc.
Early Childhood Decay:
Childhood caries is on the rise. Our job as pediatric dentists is to help prevent cavities from forming. The good news is that cavities can be treated. We have the training, expertise, and skills to give your little one the best care.
Take-home custom bleaching trays are offered for teenagers.
We offer a variety of white crowns, including the all-new, all-white zirconia crowns. The doctor will advise if this is recommended for your child.
Malshaped teeth, fractured teeth, old fillings, and brown spots can all be treated with bonded resins (Fillings).
If your child is missing their front teeth, we can replace them with a natural-looking partial that is bonded in. These are not removable and will be removed before the new teeth start growing in.
From falls to bike accidents, trauma can leave your child with a chipped or displaced tooth. We can help make your child's tooth look as good as new!
Noninvasive White Spot Treatment:
We use the latest materials to treat white and brown spots on permanent teeth.
Tongue Tie release and frenectomy:
The laser can relieve a tongue-tie or a frenum attachment in an infant to help with feeding, sleeping, and speech in a child.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas):
This helps your child to relax so that we can communicate with them and work together to complete treatment. They are always given 100% oxygen afterwards and are free to return to school or normal activities afterwards.
Oral sedation is a light conscious sedation that is completed in the office. Vital signs are monitored the entire time, and your child's safety is our top priority.
BPA-Free Dental Sealants:
These are recommended on permanent molars with deep pits and grooves to help prevent cavities from forming.
Fluoride Prescription Toothpaste:
Our Baytown pediatric dentist may recommend a special toothpaste to use at home for children who are at a higher risk for developing cavities.
When a baby tooth falls out early, teeth can shift to close the space. We can fabricate "retainers" to help hold teeth in place so that they do not shift. This will help preserve as much space as possible for the new tooth underneath.
We counsel parents and offer suggestions on how to stop habits (thumb, pacifier, finger habit) at home. When these methods do not work, special appliances can be fabricated to help stop the habit and prevent unfavorable jaw growth.
Stainless steel crowns and White Zirconia crowns.
Our tooth-colored fillings are mercury-free
