Pediatric DentistryAt the moment your child's first tooth comes in, you need to think about pediatric dental care. Children will require close watching through their childhood years with regular checkups and cleanings to ensure that teeth are growing properly and that there are no problems. Your child may not always brush and floss during the day as often as necessary for good dental health. With regular checkups, healthy oral hygiene can be more easily maintained.
If your child needs braces because of misaligned teeth, our dentist in Santa Clarita will have your child properly fitted so that his or her teeth can be straightened. It takes one to three years for the teeth to be repositioned correctly. During treatment, occasional adjustments will need to be made as the teeth are gradually realigned. If your child experiences any discomfort due to the braces, adjustments will also be made to take care of irritation.
Cavities will most likely occur sometime during your child's younger years, especially if he or she eats a good amount of sweets and does not always remember to brush. Our Santa Clarita dentist will effectively remove all traces of tooth decay and fill any cavities that develop.
Our Santa Clarita pediatric dentist will give your child gentle and competent dental care that will see him or her through the childhood years.
