The habits we learn as children inform our behavior throughout our entire lives. This is why children’s dentistry focuses on teaching oral hygiene practices that protect kids’ teeth for years to come. Keeping up with proper brushing and flossing helps your child prevent cavities and other oral health problems as they grow into adolescence and adulthood. Visiting the dentist regularly provides an accountability check-in to inspect the results of their daily efforts!
At your Temecula, CA dental practice, we provide a comfortable environment for younger patients to acclimate to receiving care. We focus on preventive efforts for fighting tooth decay while treating any cavities we detect. Because we serve people of all ages, our practice is a convenient location for your entire family’s dental needs.
A Focus On Comfort
We set a positive tone with a welcoming attitude to help your child feel comfortable at their first dental visit. Because their first impression shapes their opinion of the dentist, we strive for a stress-free experience. We recommend scheduling their first examination after the eruption of their first tooth or before their first birthday. At following visits, we will monitor the arrival and departure of their baby teeth on the expected schedule.
We will carefully remove plaque and tartar from the surface of your child’s teeth at each visit. This helps prevent cavities and gum disease as we clean deposits that your child’s brush cannot. If we do find evidence of decay, we can treat cavities with a dental filling. Fillings can support baby teeth in the same manner as adult teeth by stopping the decay process and restoring their natural appearance. We finish their cleaning by applying polish to keep their surface bright!
Special Services For Kids
We provide additional specialized services to ensure the protection of each child’s teeth. The application of fluoride treatment helps strengthen enamel to prevent the development of cavities. We also place physical treatment in the form of dental sealants. Applied to a child’s molar, a sealant prevents food particles from becoming stuck between teeth and contributing to decay.
