Whether your child has a toothache or is due for a checkup, we welcome the opportunity to provide them with the quality dental care they require.
As parents, of course we want our kids to start out the school year right. Our practice makes it easy to schedule your child’s dental checkup before the school year begins. Dr. Layton’s office is kid-friendly and equipped with the state-of-the-art in dental technology to make visits as gentle and beneficial as can be. Scheduling semi-annual checkups is critical for helping your kids establish and maintain excellent oral health—a benefit which can mean less missed school time. In fact, according to a recent study from the Journal of the American Dental Association, in the U.S., kids miss more than 51 million school hours annually due to dental problems. The most common dental issue that kids face is the development of cavities. Over fifty percent of kids between ages 5 and 9 have had at least one cavity, and studies suggest that the rate increases with age. The good news is that your children’s dentist in San Antonio provides preventive dental care services to reduce their risk for cavities. With our professional oversight, we can spot tooth decay at its earliest and teach your kids how to brush and floss with maximal efficacy. We also provide specialized treatments such as periodic topical fluoride therapy and the application of dental sealants to the permanent back molars as an added layer of protection.
For the dental services so essential for your child’s continued oral health, we invite you and your loved ones to our office for gentle care. To schedule your next appointment with our children’s dentist in San Antonio, give a call to our friendly staff today!
