Welcome to Brooks Pediatric Dentistry!April 28, 2021 2:33 am
Our practice is proud to provide high-quality dental care for children in San Antonio and surrounding areas. We focus on treating every child with empathy and providing them with the services they need to have healthy and happy smiles.
High-Quality Preventive Care
In addition to practicing good oral hygiene at home, children should visit our office twice per year for routine dental cleanings and exams. Good oral health habits and regular visits will help your child be well on their way to having a strong and healthy smile. We also recommend that kids have dental sealants applied into the crevices of their molars to prevent harmful bacteria from building up and causing tooth decay. Fluoride treatments are also excellent preventive services that can help fortify your child’s enamel.
Relaxing Dental Sedation
Dental offices can feel overwhelming to children. At Brooks Pediatric Dentistry, we offer several sedation options that help children feel at ease during their appointment. Sedation can be used during advanced restorative treatments like root canals and oral surgery, as well as more routine services like cleanings, checkups, and fillings. Dental sedation can also be helpful for patients who have trouble sitting still for long periods of time. And we may suggest dental sedation for your child if they cannot remain still with their mouth open wide.
Same-Day Emergency Dentistry
Kids sometimes have accidents—it’s a part of life! Our team is here to help if your child knocks out a permanent tooth, gets something wedged between their teeth, experiences severe tooth or gum pain, or has persistent gum swelling or bleeding. Prompt emergency dental care can often mean the difference between restoring the teeth and gums back to their original state or needing a more invasive, costly, and time-consuming restorative treatment down the road.
We recommend that parents keep supplies like gauze, ice packs, and over-the-counter pain medication on hand for dental and non-dental related emergencies. It’s also a good idea to keep our practice number in your phone’s contacts so you can get in touch with our office right away should a dental emergency occur in your household.
