-- When it comes to dental health, children aren't just "little adults." Instead, they have unique health needs that require specialty dental care. That's the message Dr. Richard Mogle conveys to his Bryan, Texas pediatric dental patients and their parents.
"Children have developmental milestones for their dental health that require special education and care to help keep their teeth clean and healthy," explains Dr. Mogle, a Bryan, Texas pediatric dentist. "From getting a first tooth to protecting from decay with dental sealants to identifying when wisdom teeth are coming in, there are many dental-related moments in a child's life."
As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Mogle provides care to children from age 12 months and onward. He generally recommends making a first dental appointment when a baby's first tooth appears or by a baby's first birthday, whichever comes first. Although babies will ultimately lose these first teeth, taking excellent care of them is vital to ensuring the adult teeth grow in as healthy as possible. Sadly, a growing number of children are experiencing increased tooth decay due to prolonged exposure to ready-made formulas and baby bottles. The sugars can linger on a baby's teeth, attracting bacteria and causing early decay.
To prevent this occurrence and protect the teeth, Dr. Mogle can show parents how to properly brush a child's teeth. As a child's adult teeth grow in, he also provides dental sealants. These protective, plastic-like coatings create a barrier between the teeth and decay-causing bacteria.
Dr. Mogle also offers emergency dentistry services to help patients deal with life's unexpected occurrences. From a knocked-out tooth at football practice to a painful toothache, Dr. Mogle offers emergency appointments at his Bryan, Texas pediatric dental office. He also can provide custom-made mouthguards for student athletes to protect against dental emergencies.
Starting children in a routine of regular dentist's visits establishes healthy habits and reduces fears of going to the dentist, Dr. Mogle emphasizes. As an experienced pediatric dentist in Bryan, he can offer education and dental services that keep a child's teeth healthy for many years to come.
"Our office is proud to care for entire families -- we even have patients who were once our pediatric patients and now bring their own children to our office," Dr. Mogle says.
