It’s never too early to start thinking about the oral health care of your child. As your child ages, their first teeth will begin to break above the gum line when they are roughly six months of age. At this point, it is imperative to begin caring for their teeth. For additional help, pediatric dentists focus on the oral health care needs of younger individuals.

If your child is in need of a pediatric dentist, visit our team. We focus on providing advanced oral health care for younger individuals including children, infants, and even special needs patients. If you have not done so already, it is important to bring your child in before they are 1 year of age to ensure their oral health care is going along smoothly and no anomaly or irregularity has occurred.

Pediatric dentists are highly trained for caring for children as they have received an additional 2 to 3 years of training. They can assess your child to determine if they are suffering from baby bottle tooth decay, teething, thumb sucking, or any other issues that may affect their overall health. Through numerous treatments and techniques, we will make sure your child receives the dental treatment necessary for a successful smile.

If you would like to have your child’s teeth examined by our team at Westlake Pediatric Dentistry, please book an appointment with Dr. Kyle Raymond and our team at our office.  To set up a visit with our pediatric dentist in Austin, Texas, please contact us at 512-732-0022.
