What pediatric dentistry services are available to Houston area children?

Children who see a pediatric dentist early and regularly often experience much less fear and anxiety as they age because they build a positive relationship with the dental professionals in their family-friendly practice. At Vivid Dental, we understand that children—even adults—may avoid the dentist because of these apprehensions. By starting children with their dentist during infancy, parents can rest easy knowing that their child understands the importance of visiting for pediatric dentistry services in our Houston-based practice.

The team of Vivid Dental provides patients with the care and attention they need to achieve and maintain healthy smiles for life. For pediatric patients, this includes services such as:


A physical examination is the first step in catching any concerns within the smile. Cavities may be detected as well as the signs of gum disease. An early diagnosis of problems is the best way to address them during the initial stages for more effective treatment. However, not all problems are visible to the eye, which is why it is important for many new and existing patients to have several x-rays done to examine the jaw bone and the tooth roots below the gum tissues.


Sometimes the dentist needs to see what is happening underneath the gum line to provide proper care. Patients at Vivid Dental may go through a series of x-rays during their very first appointment, and other follow-up appointments may include x-rays as well to check for any developing issues.


At Vivid Dental, we believe that young patients can benefit from sealants and fluoride treatments which can help in protecting the enamel of the teeth and reducing one’s risk for cavities and gum disease. This allows the dentist and patient to take a proactive approach to a healthy smile.

The team of Vivid Dental provides pediatric dentistry services to patients in and around the Houston community and can assist many different dental concerns. From general to cosmetic dentistry, patients can come to Vivid Dental for the care and attention they deserve from a dedicated, experience staff of professionals. Contact us today to book your first consultation appointment and examination with our team and learn more about the pediatric dentistry services which may be available to your children.
