Open Late Dentistry and Orthodontics in Celina/Prosper Aims to Keep Your Child Coming Back for Fun, Educational and Thorough Cleaning Appointments that Make Pediatric Dentistry as Simple as Possible

"As a Father of two precious girls, I treat my Pediatric Patients like I would my own kids, and love to become a big kid as well. My goal is to make you child love coming to the dentist, even if that means bribing them with toys or telling bad Dad Jokes :-)" - Dr. Rouse

Why Does My Child Need Pediatric Dental Cleanings and Routine Care?

While Oral Hygiene at home is the foundation of a healthy smile for a lifetime, caring for your child’s smile at an early age takes a caring and compassionate approach from our Dental Team. 

Beyond proper brushing and flossing techniques, this includes tips for you as a parent on getting your child to make oral health important to them, as well.

Aside from providing high-quality care, pediatric dentistry also involves helping children feel comfortable visiting the dentist’s office and excited about learning to keep their smiles healthy. 

At our office, we strive to make everyone feel at home, and we encourage parents to remain in the room during their children’s exams and treatments. 

For children who are especially anxious about visiting the dentist or undergoing dental treatment, we can also provide a safe dental sedation option, such as a combination of nitrous oxide and anti-anxiety medication (also known as oral conscious sedation).

What Should I Expect at My Child's Dental Appointment?

We invite both kids and adults to be a part of the entire dental appointment. You and your child are more than welcome to enjoy our reception area. 

Your child may have “New Patient Paperwork” where we find out their favorite color and sport so we can get to know them, and not just their teeth.

  • We discuss in a powerpoint format diet and how to keep healthy teeth. 
  • We find out any concerns you have so Dr. Rouse can discuss them with you.
  • We go over flossing and brushing by having your child show us what they are currently doing, to see if there is anything we can do to help.
  • We evaluate all children for orthodontic concerns (see our Phase 1 website page)
  • We evaluate x-rays that were taken and a visual exam for diagnosis of any treatment.
  • We offer same-day treatment for smaller treatment cases if you and your child feels comfortable, in order to prevent losing any additional time at school

Your child’s teeth are then cleaned, a fluoride treatment is applied and kids are invited to get a toy!

Pediatric Dental F.A.Q.'s

Baby bottle decay can begin to develop in children as young as one year old or after the eruption of the first tooth.

We see children as young as six months old, whether they have teeth yet or not, and can evaluate for signs of tongue-tie and frenulum issues.

Addressing such issues early can significantly improve feeding, speech, and airway development.

Pediatric dentistry also focuses on prevention through regular checkups and cleanings, as well as treatments such as fluoride applications and dental sealants. Fluoride treatments bolster your child’s tooth enamel by strengthening it on a molecular level. Silver diamine fluoride that help stop cavity progression in its tracks in certain instances.

We have an entire website page devoted to Dental sealants.

They enhance their teeth’s protection by creating an additional barrier between your child’s natural tooth structure and the harmful oral bacteria that can lead to cavities.

We have a "sealant challenge" at our office to show you where your child is missing with their toothbrush on back teeth. If they can not maintain the grooves of their molars especially, we may discuss dental sealants.

If your child has good home care and no history of cavities, we may not bring up dental sealants. Please inquire with any further questions.

If a baby tooth needs to come out early, we can also provide space maintainers to keep surrounding teeth in place and prevent overcrowding/spacing issues.

If a tooth cavity does develop, then we can custom-design and place a conservative tooth-colored filling to stop the cavity from growing. Unlike metal fillings, the resin that tooth-colored fillings are made from does not break down or change shape over time, meaning they offer more effective and biocompatible treatment for young smiles.

Unhealthy bacteria strains feed off of the carbohydrates and simple sugars ingested while eating. They produce acid that eats holes in your child's teeth know as cavities if plaque is not removed every day. This is for every surface of every tooth.

Before the eruption of your child's teeth, a tooth brush finger sleeve or damp cloth is recommended to stimulate gum tissue. 

Psychologically, as early as possible associating cleaning the mouth as part of the body is never a bad thing.

Consider a toothbrush alone or with a fluoride-free toothpaste after eruption of the first tooth.

Once a child can spit toothpaste, a very small amount of fluoride toothpaste can be used. Consult with us if you are unsure when to start.

We recommend evaluating your child's diet with a food diary or an evaluation of how frequently your child is snacking.

We also go over diet from an early age using teaching aids to show children that carbs are typically what causes cavities. Especially simple sugars. We recommend these to be once a day, maximum and at one time. 

Sugary drinks sipped for long periods of time keep the pH of the mouth very acidic for too long, in addition to the bacteria in the mouth producing acid, as well.

Please see our page on Phase 1 Orthodontics. We make appliances that are bonded in the mouth for several months to break this habit if everything at home has been attempted first.

We recommend over the counter sports guards from sporting goods stores until your child has all of their adult teeth. At which time we can fabricate a custom, unique sports guard to protect their teeth from dental trauma during sporting events. Please see our page on Night Guards and Sports Guards for more info.

2 Types of Dental X-Rays are typically recommended:

  1. A Panoramic X-Ray as early as 6 years old for finding out your child's pattern of eruption of teeth. This helps tell if your child's teeth are on track for their age and possibilities for early intervention of orthodontic treatment.
  2. Bitewing or Periapical X-Rays: These help identify cavities before they get too large. They also help monitor existing fillings and crowns on your child's teeth to ensure they aren't going bad or needing more dental treatment.

We are a family dentist located in Celina, Texas (TX), serving patients of all ages from Prosper, Gunter, Aubrey, Frisco, Anna, and the surrounding areas.
