By teaching your child proper habits to take care of their teeth at an early age, they can enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles! Beginning with the eruption of their first baby tooth, kids are as susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease as their parents. This means that by bringing them to regular dental checkups, we can clean their little teeth and help you teach them brushing and flossing techniques to practice at home. When your child accommodates to visiting the dentist every six months, they know to take care of their grins to show off their good behavior!

At your Riverside, CA dental practice, we provide smile care for every member of your family. By introducing ourselves to your children, we can help them become comfortable with regular cleanings and checkups. These regular meetings allow us to create a dental record and detect when any problems arise with their growth and development.

A Preventive Attitude Towards Children’s Dentistry

At Riverside Dental Group, we suggest bringing your child for their first visit by their first birthday or whenever their first baby tooth comes in. At this initial meeting, we will perform a simple knee-to-knee exam to inspect their mouth and see that their smile is coming in as predicted. Beginning around age two, we will place them on a routine semiannual visiting schedule to receive regular cleanings and exams.

Performing Your Child’s Checkup

As your child grows, we will regularly clean their smile to remove plaque and tartar deposits that can create cavities and gum infections. When necessary we will remove decay and place dental fillings to maintain the proper alignment of their bite. A premature loss of a baby tooth can affect the development of the jaw, so it is important to keep their baby teeth healthy until the natural time to fall out. For additional care, we offer fluoride treatments and dental sealants to increase their protection against decay. Because kids are still mastering their brushing and flossing technique, these services help boost their ability to fight oral bacteria.
