Dr. David Earnest spent some of his career before coming to Comal Dental working in pediatric dental practices, so he’s got plenty of experience providing children’s dentistry. Children need regular dental checkups to maintain and develop healthy smiles. In fact, children can be more susceptible to serious dental damage and disease for a number of reasons. Protect your child’s smile by bringing him or her to Comal Dental in New Braunfels, TX for various children’s dentistry treatments.
Why entrust your child’s care to Comal Dental? One important aspect of children’s dentistry is helping children understand how essential lifelong dental care is while making sure they feel comfortable in the dental office. Many people who have dental anxiety as adults report having had negative experiences as children. Dr. Earnest and our team go to great lengths to make sure that your child feels completely safe and at ease during every visit. With a gentle touch and a compassionate demeanor, Dr. Earnest encourages kids to actually enjoy visiting the dentist!
Beyond children’s dentistry checkups and cleanings, Dr. Earnest provides protective treatments as children age to lower their risk of cavities. One of these treatments is dental sealants. Dental sealants are typically applied to adult molars when they come in. These teeth are covered in crevices that can trap food and bacteria, but dental sealants provide a clear covering to keep out decay-causing debris. Fluoride treatments help in a different way. Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that can strengthen tooth enamel, making it less susceptible to decay.
