In many ways, our oral health care needs do not change as we grow older. Good dental hygiene remains valuable, as the right habits stop the accumulation of bacteria and food debris from causing trouble with cavities. These efforts, combined with regular dental checkups, also help preserve the attractive appearance of teeth and protect our gums from infection. With that said, our needs from the dentist can change through the years, particularly as we pass from childhood to adulthood. Kids need help to learn about what good oral hygiene involves, and they need guidance to learn how they can effectively protect themselves against different dental threats. At our Riverside, CA dental practice, we provide pediatric dental services that tend to the needs of younger patients effectively. Because we provide this support as well as care for adults, we can make sure that all of the people in your household, including you, have the right oral health support on an ongoing basis.

Your Dentist Can Introduce Your Kids To Dental Care

At their initial appointments, it is important to help kids develop a favorable impression of smile care and the dentist’s office. Because of this, we take great care to provide a positive welcome when children see us for the first time. In addition to providing a comfortable visual examination, we can help our youngest patients familiarize themselves with our team and our office. As they grow up, we can ease them into the kind of preventive services that are important for people of all ages.

How We Provide Extra Cavity Protection To Kids

Because kids are still learning how to care for their smile, and why it is important to do so, they can be more vulnerable to dental decay without the right support. To help them, we can offer extra cavity protection with fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Sealants add another line of defense for their enamel because they create a barrier between harmful microbes and food debris and their enamel. They are made from a safe clear plastic substance that we apply to their back teeth. Fluoride treatments are good for teeth because they make it easier for our enamel to naturally heal before minor damage turns into a cavity.

One Location Can Support Your Family’s Oral Health Needs

Your kids are not the only ones in your household who should see their dentist regularly. You may have a better handle on oral hygiene and its importance, but you can still gain real benefits from routine dental exams and cleanings. Because you can bring everyone to one location, you can more easily set up appointments for everyone at the same time to reduce the number of visits you have to arrange.
