Pediatric dentistry is a unique branch of the dental profession because, well, our patients are quite different from adults.
Kids’ bodies go through dynamic changes over a short period of time. Their teeth develop, exfoliate, and erupt at the same time as their jaws are growing. This presents special challenges when it comes to the timing of treatment and the types of procedures that are appropriate. Pediatric dentistry includes a delicate understanding of how to shape the jawline and facilitate the optimal position for permanent teeth.
At Pediatric Dentistry of East Texas, we work to ensure that neither you nor your child have anything to fear from a dental visit.
