Who is a good candidate for Pediatric Dental Care?
Since kids have their baby teeth for several years of life, it is essential to help them maintain good oral health through the childhood stages. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests that children take their first trip to the dentist before turning a year old. Our team can then help parents decide how frequently dental visits should be scheduled. ACE Dental of Temple offers comprehensive pediatric dental services to meet the needs of young patients, including teeth cleanings, sealants, dental fillings, pulpotomies, stainless steel crowns, and more. Our well-trained team also provides tooth extractions, Invisalign Teen orthodontics, and emergency dental treatment at our family-friendly practice.
