The young smiles in your home have unique needs. To ensure they reach and maintain optimal oral health, not just any pediatric dentist in Allen will do. You need a dental team that caters to developing smiles. At OPD Smiles, we serve the Allen community with personalized pediatric dentistry and orthodontic services to create a lasting foundation for a healthy, beautiful smile.
Young smiles rely on individualized dental care through each stage of oral development. Dr. Russell Choy is a board-certified pediatric dentist who has undergone advanced training in pediatric dentistry to ensure your child receives the best care possible.
We focus on prevention to keep the teeth and gums healthy. Routine cleanings and checkups allow Dr. Choy to monitor your child’s oral health. This allows him to detect any concerning areas while they are still small to provide quick intervention. This lessens the need for a costly or invasive treatment down the road to protect their smile while also lowering their long-term dental costs.
Unfortunately, even with the best preventive care, issues can still arise. The biggest threat to your child’s oral health is tooth decay. If they have a cavity, it must be treated quickly to prevent it from extending further into the tooth. Dr. Choy uses the latest methods and techniques to rehabilitate its health while keeping your child’s comfort a top priority.
Our office strives to help each child feel comfortable and relaxed while in our office, but we know some children need a little extra help to feel at ease. This can be especially true if they need a dental treatment. Our office provides sedation dentistry to help children relax when feeling scared or agitated. We can also ensure a pain-free appointment if they need a procedure.
Although you never expect it to happen to your family, dental emergencies are more common than you might think. If your child experiences a sudden oral health issue, time is of the utmost importance. You need a dentist right away. Dr. Choy is here for you. We provide same-day appointments to stop your child’s pain while saving their smile.
Besides the health of your child’s teeth, their alignment is equally important. It’s recommended your child has their first consultation with an orthodontist in Allen around the age of 7. Now, there’s no need to visit an unfamiliar dental office because Dr. Michael offers orthodontic care in-office.
Metal braces are effective for correcting even the most complex bite and alignment issues for a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile.
Teens and adults can enjoy a less noticeable solution with ceramic braces because they blend in with the color of your enamel.
Clear aligners are nearly invisible to move the teeth discreetly because no wires or brackets are used.
Dr. Michael provides several types of oral appliances to promote the function and health of your loved ones’ smiles, such as retainers, palatal expanders, and more.
