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 strive to ensure that our patients receive the latest dental technology in Denton, giving them the best possible care. We are proud to offer a variety of cutting-edge technologies, such as 3D Imaging and Intra-Oral Scanners (IOS). These technologies provide accurate digital X-rays that allow us to view your child’s teeth and jaw structure in greater detail than ever before. With 3D Imaging, we can generate a digital model of your child’s teeth and jaw, which helps us identify potential problems and plan treatments more effectively.
3D dental imaging is a revolutionary technology that is revolutionizing dentistry. It creates detailed 3D images of teeth and oral structures, allowing for unprecedented accuracy and precision when diagnosing and treating conditions in the mouth. At Pediatric Dentistry of Denton, Dr. Gibson and his staff use state-of-the-art 3D dental imaging technology to provide patients with the most accurate diagnosis and treatment plan possible.
The 3D dental imaging system takes a three-dimensional image of the patient’s entire mouth, including all teeth, gums, tongue, and other structures. This image helps Dr. Gibson accurately diagnose problems and develop a treatment plan. We can use 3D images to identify cavities, gum disease, misalignments, developmental issues, impacted teeth, infections, and more. We can also use them to plan complex treatments such as root canals or extractions.
The 3D dental imaging system provides numerous benefits to the patient. The imaging system allows Dr. Gibson to view the entire mouth simultaneously rather than relying on traditional X-rays and photos to diagnose various conditions. This system dramatically increases the accuracy of diagnosis and treatment planning, allowing for more efficient and effective care. 3D imaging also helps reduce radiation exposure for children by allowing for quicker diagnosis without having to take multiple X-rays. The 3D images also let Dr. Gibson show you what needs to be done before any treatment begins, helping to make sure that you understand and are comfortable with the plan of action.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is highly effective for children’s sleep apnea. CPAP is a non-invasive mode of treatment, which provides a constant flow of air that helps to keep the airways open during sleep. This treatment can be used on children as young as four years old diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea.
Pediatric Dentistry of Denton and Dr. Gibson specializes in providing dental CPAP therapy to children and adolescents alike. They understand the importance of accurate diagnosis and effective treatment to manage sleep apnea.
At Pediatric Dentistry of Denton, we understand that dental CPAP therapy is not always successful for every child due to their unique circumstances. If this is the case, Dr. Gibson can work with parents to identify alternative treatments, such as custom-made oral appliances or even surgery, depending on the severity of the case.
Intra-oral scanners are an innovative dental tool that has revolutionized how dentists conduct examinations and treatments. Dr. Gibson often uses intra-oral scanners to give patients a more accurate, detailed view of their oral health.
The intra-oral scanner is a hand-held device equipped with a camera and LED lights that help provide an in-depth look at the teeth and gums. The camera allows Dr. Gibson better understand any issues, such as cavities or gum disease, that may be present.
The intra-oral scanner offers multiple advantages over traditional methods of capturing images. It is fast and easy to use, which means less time spent in a chair for the patient. Additionally, the images it captures are incredibly detailed and accurate, so Dr. Gibson can clearly see even the most minor details.
At Pediatric Dentistry, we use intra-oral scanners to create an accurate picture of your child’s mouth. The scanner allows us to provide exceptional care and treatment plans tailored to your child’s needs. We also use scanners to monitor progress over time, ensuring that your child gets the best possible care.
At Pediatric Dentistry of Denton, we understand how important it is to take good care of your child’s oral health. We are dedicated to providing our patients with the latest dental technology and treatments to get the best possible care. Whether looking for preventive care or a more advanced treatment like CPAP therapy, you can trust Dr. Gibson and our team to provide superior care for every patient.
