Children have their own special set of healthcare needs, so it makes sense that they have individual dental care requirements as well. Dr. Narita and the Amazing Smiles team can treat the young members of your household during children’s dentistry appointments at our Allen practice. Contact us today to schedule an examination for your loved one.
We start seeing children around four years of age for children’s dentistry appointments. During an examination, a gentle member of our staff will show your daughter or son around the office, answer their questions, and explain what will happen during the exam. The hygienist will also gently count each of your child’s teeth. Then, Dr. Narita will check for any cavities or problem areas. Children have tiny teeth and hands, and they are just learning the basics of dental hygiene. We can point out areas that may seem to be a bit troublesome or components that are missing altogether during their oral hygiene routine. The hygienist will conclude the appointment by gently cleaning your child’s teeth to remove plaque. If we find a cavity, it’s nothing to worry about. We can treat and fill the area, as well as reeducate your child about the proper way to brush and floss teeth.
Your child’s safety and comfort will always come first to Dr. Narita. While the entire team at Amazing Smiles will do what we can to put your child at ease, it may be difficult for your child to relax and trust the dentist. For these cases, Dr. Narita can easily refer you to a reliable pediatric dentistry specialist. No matter what, he wants to do what’s best for his patients!
Please contact our office to schedule a children’s dentistry appointment. Dr. Narita sees the children of families from Allen, McKinney, Plano, Fairview, Lucas, and beyond!
