Pediatric Dentist in Garland
At La Prada Family Dentistry, we offer comprehensive dental care with a pediatric dentist to all ages - including children. In fact, we love kids! It’s important to get them off on a great start, so that they can feel comfortable at their checkups.
Plus, we partner with parents to give you the tools and resources necessary to help your child enjoy strong, healthy teeth that last well into adulthood.
Pediatric Services We Offer
Checkups and Cleanings — Medical doctors and pediatric dental specialists agree that children should see a pediatric dentist by their first birthday, or when their first tooth erupts (whichever comes first). Most children benefit from a preventive cleaning and checkup every six months.
White Fillings — Mercury-free fillings are safe for young smiles and stop cavities from spreading to other teeth.
Fluoride Treatments — Keep teeth strong and promote healthy enamel development.
Protective Dental Sealants — Block out cavity-causing bacteria before they harm your child’s smile.
Pulpotomies and Crowns — Restoring badly infected teeth can help you avoid a trip to the emergency room, or complicated orthodontic treatment later on.
Your Child’s First Visit
We’ll take things easy at your child’s first appointment. After all, it’s important to make a positive first impression. We’ll follow your child’s lead when it comes to “extras” like getting x-rays taken, cleaning teeth, or placing sealants. The first visit is typically one that is more educational for both parent and child.
Keeping Your Little One Comfortable When Seeing the Pediatric Dentist
Kids tend to do great with just a little bit of laughing gas. In most cases they’ll be so distracted by the television, that they won’t notice anything at all.
