Comprehensive Pediatric Dental Care: Why It Matters

For many patients and their families, you might think your dentist is only concerned with the immediate health of your teeth and nothing else in your body. That’s where you’re wrong. Pediatric dental problems can have broader impacts well beyond your child’s oral health, and our dentists at Rio Dental & Orthodontics know that. Let’s take an infected tooth as an example:

Imagine a little tooth with a big problem – an infection surrounding tooth decay. If left untreated, this infection could make the child sick, cause pain, and even affect their ability to eat and sleep. It might even cause the child to become ill with a fever and flu-like symptoms.

Luckily a comprehensive dental team will be able to recognize, explain, and address odd or seemingly unrelated symptoms to your child’s dental problems. The teeth and mouth are connected to several important organs across the body. Most notably, they are connected to the heart, lungs, stomach, and brain.

If any of Rio’s dentists notice a dental problem that could be connected to one of these organ systems, we will let you know so you can work with your child’s physician. Rio Dental & Orthodontic has pediatric dentists who will act quickly, seeing urgent cases as soon as possible to keep your child healthy.

  • CareCredit

You can play a part in preparing your child for his or her first visit to our office. Informing your child of the visit as an exciting experience for both of you can ease any hesitations. As a parent try to act relaxed, since your child may sense any anxiety on your part.

Explain to your child that the doctor will “count, brush, and maybe take pictures of their teeth”. We also ask that you assume the role of a silent observer. Cooperation and trust must be established directly between the doctor, staff, and your child and not through you. Your child may become confused if receiving instructions from multiple sources.

We recommend bringing your baby in for their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing (whichever comes first). During this appointment, we will examine your baby’s mouth to track their dental development and discuss age-appropriate dental care.

It’s easy to make appointments to visit our office online or over the phone. Rio Dental sees patients both for checkups and dental emergencies. Using our online scheduler, you can select the location and time slot that works best for you for either type of appointment. If you have any questions regarding our practice, or simply prefer to make your appointment with a live member of staff, please don’t hesitate to call!

Rio Dental Group accepts most PPO insurances. We recommend that new patients and returning patients with new insurance policies reach out to us before their appointment to confirm coverage. Our Fort Worth location also sees patients who are covered by Medicaid and CHIP programs.

We don’t like surprises, either! Our staff is prepared to discuss the cost of dental services before you undergo treatment so that you know what to expect in terms of fees. The cost of your services will be due at the end of your appointment. Our office accepts payment by cash, credit card, or check.

Rio Dental Group allows patients to pay with their CareCredit card. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to cover out-of-pocket costs at over 225,000 providers nationwide. After leaving the office, card holders will be able to make convenient monthly payments towards their balance. To learn more, visit the CareCredit website.
