When your children attend dental checkups and cleanings regularly, we help safeguard their smiles from common concerns and keep an eye on their appropriate development. Early visits to the dentist form the basis for lifelong oral hygiene habits when your kids are accustomed to taking care of their teeth. Pediatric dentistry specializes in protecting your children’s teeth to prevent tooth decay with preventive treatments such as fluoride application and the placement of dental sealants.
At your Corona, CA, dentist’s practice, we provide a welcoming environment to ease your child into their first dental visits in a comfortable manner. By beginning care early, we can prevent decay and gum disease from hurting their little smiles as they learn to take care of their teeth on their own. By offering treatment for patients of all ages, Dental Associates of Corona is a convenient location for all of your family’s dental needs!
When Children Begin Attending The Dentist
Just like adults, kids should receive a general checkup and examination on a semiannual basis. We encourage you to bring in your child for their initial visit by their first birthday or whenever their first tooth erupts. We will perform a simple lap exam to introduce ourselves to your baby and familiarize them for future visits. At the appropriate age, we will begin routine cleanings to protect and detect potential cavities or other dental complications. We will observe that your child’s teeth come in and fall out on the proper schedule as well. By visiting every six months, your child will learn the importance of regularly caring for their teeth in between visits
Helping Kids Fight Tooth Decay
At each of your child’s cleanings, we will offer the preventative protection of fluoride treatment and dental sealants. Using a topical fluoride gel applied to the surfaces of their teeth, we help strengthen portions of their enamel that become weak. This reduces the risk of tooth decay from eroded surface material in-between visits. Because kids may have a harder time reaching teeth in the backs of their mouths when brushing and flossing, dental sealants provide physical protection against the accumulation of cavity-causing plaque. These protective coatings prevent bacteria and debris from attaching to crevices between teeth while your children learn to properly clean their teeth on their own. If we do discover a cavity, we can place a dental filling just like we would for an adult.
