At Vista Ridge Family Dentistry, we truly are a family dental practice in Cedar Park, Texas. Not only do we treat our patients like family, we provide gentle, compassionate dental care for patients of all ages and for every member of your family – from first cavities to dentures and everything in between.
As most of our team members have children and families of their own, we understand that getting everyone in for their regular dental visits can be challenging. That’s why we do everything we can to ensure convenient scheduling and flexible financing to help you and your family get the care you deserve.
At Vista Ridge Family Dentistry, we know that many patients have had bad experiences at other dentists when it comes to cleanings. Some hygienists just don’t understand the pain and discomfort they can cause with their tools and floss. We want you to rest assured that is not the case here at Vista Ridge.
All of our hygienists are incredibly gentle and compassionate to make sure your little one has a positive experience at the dentist for a lifetime of oral health. We’ll get into those tight nooks and crannies to remove any plaque or tartar, and send them home with a new brush and floss, and teach them the proper techniques to do it themselves at home.
Because kids still lack the knowledge and the dexterity to brush and floss effectively, fluoride is an essential part of any child’s oral health care routine. Tooth decay is one of the most common chronic diseases among children in America, second only to the common cold. The good news is, tooth decay or dental caries is preventable with quality dental care and fluoride treatment. We have different flavors for them to choose from so they might actually enjoy their fluoride treatment – bubble gum, yum!
When oral hygiene and fluoride treatment are not enough to keep tooth decay at bay (some kids and adults are just more prone to decay than others), we’re happy to provide dental sealants for an added layer of caries-fighting protection.
Any good parent knows that early childhood education is essential in establishing good habits and values your kids will carry on for the rest of their lives. These early years are formative for who they will grow into, and oral health is no exception. We go out of our way to educate all of our patients on the importance of good oral hygiene and regular dental visits for a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles.
One common misconception about pediatric dentistry is that it’s not that important because they are only going to lose their baby teeth anyway. This could not be more incorrect. The truth is, healthy baby teeth set the stage for healthy adult teeth to grow in properly later, and if you neglect their oral health early, it will lead to more costly and painful dental problems down the road into adulthood. That’s why it’s important to take good care of their teeth today to give them hope for a bright, healthy smile tomorrow.
