Children's Dentistry Options
Not every dental practice caters to the dynamics of families. At Rush Creek Dentistry in Arlington, we believe that everyone deserves quality dental care-even the little ones! We offer a variety of pediatric dentistry options for our patients.
We encourage parents to bring their children in for dental examinations at a young age. Children as young as one year old can visit our practice. This is a great time to introduce children to the dental environment and to the staff. The first visit is usually non-intrusive. The teeth and gums are examined, and our staff talks to the child in an age-appropriate manner to discuss positive oral health habits. The first visit is a great way to encourage children to be excited about visiting Dr. Sater and his staff.
Dr. Sater provides younger patients services such as fluoride treatments and sealants to reduce the risk of cavity formation and periodontal disease. We also use nitrous oxide sedation (also known as "laughing gas") to assist in calming children who are uneasy in the dental chair. This can be done for regular dental cleanings and examinations, as well as during dental treatments.
We work to educate children on the benefits of brushing and flossing after every meal to ensure a healthy smile. Learning how to care for the teeth and gums at a very young age can encourage lifelong positive dental habits. By starting this education early, it will be second nature for children to care for their smiles. These children are often the ones who take their dental care seriously and understand the consequences of poor oral care habits.
Dr. Sater and the team at Rush Creek Dentistry provide dental services for both children and adults, and they are happy to see entire families visiting the practice for their dental needs. If you are located in Arlington or the surrounding areas, we welcome new patients to our state-of-the-art facility. Contact us today at (682) 323-3299 to schedule your initial consultation visit.
