At Sterling Ridge Dental Center, we can offer truly compassionate, caring, and gentle care with our pediatric dentistry. It is our goal to make sure that your child has fun and feels safe during their visits with Drs. Scott, or Cope. Even if your child is brushing twice a day, flossing their teeth at least once a day, and limiting the amount of junk food they eat, it is still possible for cavities to form. When this happens, our dentists may recommend a filling.
We understand that our patients’ parents may feel nervous on how to prepare their child for their first dental filling. We advise parents to be calm, confident, and positive. Provide your child with very basic information, such as, “The dentist is going to clean the sugar bugs out of your teeth.”
Regarding dental fillings for children in The Woodlands, Texas, we recommend keeping the amount of information to a minimum when it comes to preparing kids, especially since dentist-fearing parents could unintentionally impart their anxieties to their children. It is definitely better to send the calmer parent to the appointment with your child. We can also offer laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, to safely reduce any anxiety and maintain your child’s positive outlook on dental care. We invite you to call our office at 281-363-3308 to schedule your child’s appointment at Sterling Ridge Dental Center.
