With a compassionate team of professionals, we provide your child with personalized attention to mitigate any anxiety or worry they may have, and tailor treatment to best suit your child’s individual needs.
As soon as your child’s first tooth erupts, it’s time for a visit with our Amarillo pediatric dentist. At each visit, our dentist tracks the growth and development of your child’s teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure. Through periodic comprehensive examinations and the monitoring your child’s dental and facial growth, we can prevent dental disease and address problems affecting their oral health, so that your child can enjoy a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles. We also provide regular dental cleanings to remove accumulated plaque, tartar and debris as well as instruct your child on the best techniques for maintaining optimal oral hygiene at home. Due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially vulnerable to developing cavities. Studies show that children across the United States lose 51 million hours each year due to dental disease. To help your child spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and more time learning and having fun, we provide extra protection against tooth decay with dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Dental sealants are protective coatings, painted on the biting surfaces of your child’s permanent molars, to prevent plaque and food debris from gathering in the crevices. Fluoride is a mineral, applied to the surfaces of teeth to strengthen teeth to prevent cavities.
At Houston, Vlosich and Short, we strive to teach your child the importance and responsibility of oral hygiene and instill healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Our Amarillo pediatric dentist makes every visit to our office positive and stress-free for you and your child.
