From the eruption of their very first tooth, it’s important to consider your children’s dental health. In fact, the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry advises parents to bring their children in for their first checkup by the time they’re 12 months old. As your Encino children’s dentist, we provide your kids with gentle dental care throughout their developmental years. We place an emphasis on the importance of preventive dental care as the best way to help maintain your child’s oral health and to deter the development of dental disease. As an added level of protection against tooth decay, we apply topical fluoride to strengthen dental enamel. Because the back molars have deep crevices, dental plaque, food particles, and debris can accumulate, creating a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. For kids between the ages of 6 and 12, we also offer dental sealants, which are thin protective coatings painted on the newly erupted, permanent molars to shield them from decay. Whatever the age of your children, scheduling semi-annual checkups is a great way to make sure that their teeth, gums, and the surrounding tissues in and around the oral cavity remain healthy throughout the year.
From comprehensive oral exams to check for dental issues, to professional instruction in the proper methods for brushing and flossing, your Encino children’s dentist is here to provide your kids with the foundation for a lifetime of continued oral health.
