Pediatric Dental Treatments In Amarillo

At Children’s Dentistry of Amarillo, we provide high quality, individualized pediatric dental care in a comfortable, kid-friendly environment. Our Amarillo pediatric dentist and his staff love helping our patients achieve and maintain healthy smiles that last a lifetime! To learn more about our practice and what we have to offer, please visit the following pages.

Early Dental Care: It’s important that your child’s gums and first teeth are cared for properly right from the start. It’s equally important that your child visits our Amarillo kids dentist by his or her first birthday so Dr. Metcalf can identify and treat any problems that may be developing with your child’s new teeth.

  • First Visit: To ensure your child can enjoy all the lifelong benefits that come with having a healthy and attractive smile, his or her first dental visit should be a positive experience. We’ve created a kid-friendly environment to help ensure your child will feel comfortable, safe and even excited about seeing the dentist.
  • Emergency Info: When your child has an unexpected dental emergency, it’s important to know what to do. We’ve put together some tips for handling all types of dental emergencies kids experience from toothaches to broken and knocked out teeth.
  • New Technology: By utilizing the most advanced technology, we can do our work with more ease while providing your child with dental treatment that’s highly efficient, safe and comfortable.
  • Sedation Dentistry: Because we know that some children have dental phobia and/or difficulty sitting still, we offer several types of sedation to ensure we have the right solution for every frightened or restless patient we serve.
  • Expanders/Habit Appliances: Our Amarillo children’s dentist may recommend the use of a habit appliance or expander as a preventative measure or as a treatment for an ongoing dental issue.
  • Brushing Charts: Through the use of our brushing charts, we make it fun for our young patients to learn the importance of maintaining good brushing habits. Just download and print your child’s favorite chart, then post it in the bathroom for your child to check off each day.
  • FAQ: To help the parents of our patients get answers to the questions they have about pediatric dental care, we’ve put together some of the most frequently asked questions along with the answers.
  • Sealants: We use dental sealants to protect the chewing surfaces of back teeth from harmful decay. If your child is cavity-prone, Dr. Metcalf may recommend sealants as a preventive measure to help keep your child’s teeth healthy.
