Pediatric Dentistry

Nucleo Dental – Premiere Pediatric Dentistry Provider                    

Childhood is a time of learning, growth, and adventure. The same can be said about their teeth and oral health. Pediatric dentistry is devoted to caring for all aspects of childhood oral health, from the child’s teeth and gums to their bone growth and other such issues.

By taking care of your child’s oral health as soon as their first baby teeth begin to erupt, you will have set your child on a path towards living a happy, healthy life. Nucleo Dental provides pediatric dentistry services to young patients in West Texas and New Mexico.

Dental Checkup

The Importance of Pediatric Dentistry in Your Child’s Life

Pediatric dentistry plays an important role in the development of your child’s oral health. Your child’s first visit to the dentist should be when he or she reaches the age of 1. During this visit, our pediatric dentist will be able to provide necessary advice in regards to tooth care and teething, as well as many other topics. Tooth brushing techniques can also be taught while visiting a pediatric dentist. Baby teeth can face many issues, from cavities to trauma. The best way to make sure your child is safe from any dental health issues is by visiting the pediatric dentist as soon as an issue arises. Nucleo Dental is able to treat the entire spectrum of pediatric  dentistry issues your child may face. From the simplest to the most complex, we’re the team for the job.


Aesthetic and Metallic Crowns

Heavily decayed or damaged baby teeth can be treated with the use of crowns. If a tooth is fractured or decayed, a crown can be cemented or bonded to the tooth permanently. Crowns aren’t solely reserved for people with permanent teeth. Porcelain crowns have become very popular because of the aesthetic quality. Nucleo Dental offers two types of porcelain restorations, namely PFM crowns (porcelain fused to metal) and full porcelain crowns. These two options look and feel just like natural teeth and will be molded to fit in perfectly with the adjacent teeth.


Metallic crowns are another option available to help manage teeth affected by moderate to advanced tooth decay. They are durable and cost less than other options. Metallic crowns are also placed faster than other options. It’s important to note that metallic crowns may be allergic to some patients.


Tooth Removal Services

A child’s baby (or primary) teeth tend to fall out completely by the age of ten. If your child’s baby teeth have yet to fall out naturally, it may be necessary to seek tooth removal services from Nucleo Dental. Baby teeth may not fall out naturally for a variety of reasons. In many cases, the child’s primary teeth may be causing problems for the incoming permanent teeth. By seeking professional assistance from a pediatric dentist at Nucleo Dental, your child’s teeth can be removed from the socket in the bone. This process will allow for the natural teeth to come in without leading to more issues.


100% Aesthetic Coverings

Teeth are fragile things and children tend to be highly energetic. It’s no surprise that children can injure their teeth by falling or hitting themselves while playing around. If your child has chipped or damaged teeth, it may be difficult for him or her to chew without feeling pain. This is where coverings and fillings come into play. White, composite fillings can protect your child’s teeth while maintaining her smile’s natural original, natural look.


Pulp Therapy to Treat, Restore, and Save Your Child’s Teeth

Teeth are not solid objects. Each tooth’s interior is made up of tissue, blood vessels, and nerves. Together, these interior contents are known as the pulp of the tooth. The pulp channels nutrients and oxygen to the tooth itself, allowing it to grow naturally. If the pulp becomes damaged, it can lead to negative scenarios. If a child faces tooth decay or traumatic injury, the pulp may become exposed and inflamed.  The purpose of pulp therapy in pediatric dentistry is to maintain the vitality of the affected tooth. This way, the affected tooth will not be lost. Pediatric pulp therapy is

 basically a root canal procedure for children. With this therapy, the child’s tooth will be treated, restored, and saved from potential loss.


Orthopedic Treatment

Orthopedic treatment is concerned with the conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital conditions.
