General dentistry and preventive dental care are at the heart of Dr. Mehta’s Houston dentist office. We offer a full range of comprehensive services for the whole family from teeth cleaning to root canals.
A Child’s First Visit to the Dentist
Where a pediatric dentist is solely focused on children, our office is family oriented. We encourage parents to bring their children to the dentist early so they can become familiar with our dental office. Our staff is trained to make children feel as comfortable as possible. Children look to parents for signs, so the best thing you can do for your child is to remain calm and relaxed.
Routine pediatric dentistry visits will include:
- Teeth cleaning
- Diagnostic x-rays (as needed)
- Charting of teeth and existing tooth conditions
- Dental caries (cavities) screening
- Evaluation of the gums
- Examination of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and jaw position
Importance of Pediatric Dentistry
Parents and guardians are they key to optimal pediatric dental health. Setting good examples at home and teaching habits early will help to establish optimal long term dental health. Tooth cavities are as common in young children as they are in adults and understanding how to prevent tooth decay is the key to maintaining a healthy smile.
Good oral health contributes to the overall health of the child as well as their self-image and feelings of achievement. Dr. Mehta and his staff work with parents and guardians to help them teach proper pediatric dental care and address common issues such as thumb sucking, tooth decay, orthodontic treatment, and wisdom teeth removal.
In addition, we offer sedation dentistry to patients who may experience fear or anxiety about going to the dentist, allowing them to maintain their dental health with comfortable dental treatment.
Our dental office is located in Galleria Area of Houston, in the Decorative Center of Houston. We are very convenient for patients and families in Houston’s west-side neighborhoods including Memorial and Tanglewood.
