At Happy Teeth Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics we provide personalized, comprehensive dental care for children at every stage of growth and development. With the care of our friendly, experienced pediatric dentist in Fair Oaks, Dr. Teresa De Guzman, children can feel comfortable and relaxed while establishing a strong foundation for a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.
As your pediatric dentist in Fair Oaks, your child’s oral health is our number one priority. We focus on preventive care and recommend children visit us for their first checkups by the age of one. We’ll teach parents how to clean and care for their child’s newly emerging teeth and begin tracking the development of the teeth, jaws and the surrounding anatomy. The primary teeth play the important role of serving as placeholders for the permanent teeth, and we aim to keep your child’s first teeth healthy. In case your child loses a baby tooth before it’s ready to fall out on its own, we can provide a space maintainer to prevent the incoming permanent teeth from crowding. We also provide early intervention to prevent misalignments of the teeth and bite with habit appliances to curb thumb sucking and tongue thrusting. To prevent tooth decay in children of all ages, we recommend periodic fluoride therapy, which helps to strengthen young tooth enamel. By the age of 7, we also recommend an orthodontic evaluation with our certified orthodontist, Dr. Teresa De Guzman. When your child’s permanent molars erupt, we recommend placing dental sealants to prevent plaque and food debris from gathering in the back teeth. If your child is an athlete, we can also provide a customized mouth guard to prevent sports-related dental injuries. We are committed to delivering the most precise and gentle care, and can utilize safe and controlled sedation technique to alleviate dental anxiety and make a lengthy procedure feel like it’s over in just minutes.
