Your Child's First Dentist Appointment

During your child's initial dental appointment, Dr. Chepyala and his team of friendly dental professionals will go above and beyond to ensure our youngest patients feel comfortable and at ease. We will take gentle x-rays, images, and photographs to gain a clear understanding of their current oral health. Additionally, we strive to educate children about proper oral hygiene by offering explanations that are easy for them to comprehend, eliminating the need for additional appointments.

Checkups and Preventive Care

Our team at Gentle Touch Dentistry Richardson adheres to the guidelines set by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), which recommend that children should have checkups every six months. If our team identifies multiple cavities or early orthodontic issues, we may recommend more frequent appointments. During each visit, our preventive dental care for children aims to promote their long-term oral health and success.

Dental Crowns For Children

If your child experiences an oral injury or if our team detects tooth decay, we may suggest using a dental crown to protect the affected area. We provide restorations for children aged 5 and above, including same-day dental crowns using CEREC technology. This innovative approach eliminates the necessity for temporary crowns and additional appointments.

Tooth Extractions For Kids

At Gentle Touch Dentistry Richardson, we provide preventive wisdom tooth extractions and removal of impacted ones to ensure the overall oral health of children. This may involve removing one or more teeth in cases of cavities, missing adult molars, or when there is a risk to their oral health. Trust us to take care of your child's total body health.

Sedation Dentistry For Children

If your child experiences anxiety, has specific healthcare requirements, or requires additional support to remain calm and at ease during dental procedures, we offer specialized sedation dentistry services for children. Dr. Chepyala possesses the expertise and compassion necessary to ensure a secure and comfortable experience for every child. Prior to your child's dental treatment, Dr. Chepyala will develop a personalized sedation plan based on their individual needs and medical background.
