Dallas TX Pediatric Dentistry Quiz

1. True or False: Children require checkups just like adults.

2. True or False: Kids with a high cavity risk may benefit from fluoride treatments.

3. True or False: Dental sealants help safeguard smiles against tooth decay.

4. True or False: Dr. Truong offers amenities to help children feel relaxed and comfortable.

Answer Key

1. True. Once your child hits the age of three, he or she should see Dr. Truong at least once every six months. During a routine six month checkup, she will exam the child’s teeth and gums for signs of tooth decay or gingivitis. This allows Dr. Truong to offer treatment before the problems escalate.

2. True. Fluoride is naturally occurring and helps remineralize your child’s teeth, strengthening their natural defenses against cavities. If your child’s teeth appear particularly susceptible to tooth decay, she may recommend the application of a fluoride, which can be done in minutes.

3. True. When your child brushes, he or she may have difficulty reaching the teeth in the rear of the mouth. As a result, the back molars are at risk of developing cavities. With dental sealants, a plastic material will be applied to the back teeth. The sealants prevent food and bacteria from adhering to the tooth or becoming stuck between teeth.

4. True. Dr. Truong provides video games and reading material in our waiting rooms, along with TVs and headphones in the exam room. She also offers sedation dentistry to help anxious children remain relaxed.
