Welcome to Pediatric Dentistry of Denton! Our team is led by a five-star rated pediatric dentist, Dr. Rex Gibson, and our goal is to provide excellent dental care for children from infancy until adulthood. We understand that visiting the dentist can be an intimidating experience for children, which is why we strive to make these visits as comfortable and stress-free as possible. That is why introducing your child to a dentist early on is essential, which is why we encourage you to schedule your child’s six-month-one-year dental exam in Denton, TX.
We advise you to schedule an appointment with a dentist by the time the first tooth erupts or by the child’s first birthday to lessen the number of infants and kids who experience easily treatable tooth decay. Why? The dentist can examine the mouth and confirm healthy oral development when we see your child early in life.
At Pediatric Dentistry of Denton, Dr. Rex Gibson offers a 6-month-1-year dental exam (baby checkups) to ensure that your child’s teeth and gums are developing correctly and healthily. On your first visit with the doctor, you can expect a comprehensive dental exam to check for any signs of tooth decay or cavities, as well as any other necessities, such as misalignment in bite patterns or gum diseases.
Dr. Rex Gibson may then proceed with some preventive care measures to help protect your children from more severe oral health issues in later life stages, such as X-rays (especially if there is teeth erosion detected) and electrical caries screening test, which uses an electrical current on their saliva sample to detect bacteria levels, both of which could indicate existing or potential problems that would be beneficial for catching early on before they further aggravate over time.
Regardless of what timely preventative routes are taken at your child’s 6 month-1 year exam visit, the main focus is always on building up good oral hygiene habits while developing strong, healthy teeth & gums – something Dr. Rex Gibson wants nothing less than patient satisfaction at Pediatric Dentistry of Denton!
We understand that trust is everything when choosing a pediatric dentist, which is why we would be glad to help you through this process! Our knowledgeable staff embraces the importance of offering patients quality experiences in both physical and emotional terms based on four key principles:
