WHAT IS PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY?

Dental health is important for each and every member of your household, no matter their age. At Zensmiles, we encourage parents to schedule their child's first visit to the dentist before they turn one year old. From there, parents should make sure their children go to the dentist at least two times a year for cleanings and exams. Our objective is to give your child a fun and stress-free trip to our Frisco, TX practice and to reinforce a positive association with going to the dentist that can hopefully last the rest of their lives. During their dental visit, board-certified dentist Dr. Mohit Sharda will evaluate the development of their teeth, check for issues or areas of trouble, and teach them about the best ways to keep up with a proper dental care regimen at home. To find out more about pediatric dentistry, contact Zensmiles to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sharda.

who qualifies for pediatric dental care?

Babies can develop cavities in their first teeth as early as 6 months old. Our team at Zensmiles can provide preventive options and treatments to help keep their teeth healthy. Your child may have their baby (primary) teeth for many years, so it's still important to keep these teeth in good shape until their permanent teeth grow in. To encourage this, you should schedule appointments twice a year for exams and cleanings. During their visits, Dr. Sharda can check for any early problems, such as cavities or bite issues, and recommend treatments, such as tooth-colored fillings, fluoride treatments, or teeth straightening.

What to Expect

Many problems may be addressed at your child's dental visit. Normally, their appointment will consist of a dental exam and a cleaning. After the cleaning, we may also do a fluoride treatment to help strengthen their teeth while they're growing. Additionally, we usually recommend sealants to help minimize instances of cavities and tooth decay. Dr. Sharda may also fix teeth that show signs of decay or are damaged, chipped, or broken by creating an effective treatment plan. When your child is a pre-teen or teenager, Dr. Sharda may recommend orthodontics to straighten their teeth to help avoid future dental problems.
