Why You Want to Stay on Top of Your Child’s Smile Health


At Crossroads Dental located in Luling, Texas, Dr. Christine Hervas encourages our patient families to maintain regular dental checkups for their children. This is to ensure that your child is not currently experiencing an undiagnosed oral condition such as a painful tooth or other chronic dental problem. Children with chronic dental pain may not always tell their parents that something is amiss because they don’t know what is happening to them.

Untreated dental conditions can lead to difficulty eating, speaking and concentrating, and may result in your child missing school. Sometimes the only sign that something is “off” might be that they appear anxious, depressed or tired.

Our experienced team at Crossroads Dental can help you determine how often your child should be seen for dental checkups. At their visit, Dr. Christine Hervas will determine the following:

— Your child’s eating habits.

— How well your child’s teeth are maintained.

— Any past treatment your child has received and what their current needs are.

— Whether your child drinks fluoridated water.

— Any factors that may indicate susceptibility to oral diseases.

Regular professional dental checkups and exams will help keep your child’s smile healthy and confident as they mature. Please call Crossroads Dental, in Luling, Texas, at 830.261.3336 to schedule your child’s next appointment with Dr. Christine Hervas and our team.
