When Should You Bring Your Child to Our Dental Office?
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child should see a dentist by the age of two. This is necessary as young children's teeth are more prone to cavities. In addition, a regular oral health routine will ensure that cavities won't form between the teeth.
A common problem experienced by toddlers is baby bottle tooth decay. This can cause cavities, formed when milk, juice, or sugar water are left on the teeth. Early dental care will make sure your child's teeth are monitored so that they grow healthy and vibrant teeth. Moreover, orthodontic problems like overcrowded teeth can be prevented with timely attention.
What Is Involved During Your Child's Visit to the Dentist?
During a dental examination, Dr. Rouhani will check your child's teeth and jaw alignment for any problems. If X-rays are necessary to check for tooth decay or other dental issues, they will be done at this visit. We have trained staff that can make your child's visit as comfortable as possible. We offer the following dental care services:
We perform teeth cleaning procedures to remove the plaque and tartar deposits. This will ensure your child's teeth are free of decay until the next appointment.
If your child has a cavity, we will carefully take out the damaged part of the tooth and repair it with a filling. Tooth-colored or metal fillings are used as per your preferences.
Fluoride helps to fight cavities. A topical application of fluoride is applied to the enamel structures. They protect the teeth from decay.
Dental sealants are thin, protective layers of plastic material that stop food and bacteria from getting trapped in the hollows on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.
If a cavity is extensive to repair with a filling, we will cap the tooth with a pediatric tooth crown. These are also used in cases where a child has undergone a root canal treatment.
Mouthguards protect your child's mouth, especially when they participate in sporting activities. It will minimize the risk of teeth breakage, coming loose, or being knocked out should the child suffer a trauma to the face.
