Each year, children across the United States lose a total of 51 school hours due to dental disease. Tooth decay is considered the most common childhood illness, affecting over 50% of children ages 5 to 9 years old, and increasing to 78% among 17 year olds. With periodic back to school checkups, we can prevent setbacks during the school year, helping your child spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and more time learning and having fun. When your child comes in for routine care, we perform a gentle and thorough dental cleaning to remove any buildup of harmful dental plaque, especially from any difficult to reach areas. A teeth cleaning is also an opportunity for us to teach better techniques for brushing and flossing, and to guide your child towards making the right lifestyle and dietary choices for maintaining excellent oral hygiene. When your child’s permanent back molars erupt, we can apply dental sealants, which are protective coatings that seal out plaque and food debris from gathering in the grooves and crevices on the biting surfaces of the back teeth. We can also reduce your child’s risk of cavities by providing fluoride treatments, which involve the application of the mineral fluoride to prevent the erosion of tooth enamel. Our 95628 pediatric dentist closely monitors your child’s dental health and development as they grow and will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure at checkup visits.
As a 95628 pediatric dentist with a reputation for providing outstanding patient care, we help your child establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. At Happy Teeth Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics, we provide personalized attention and gentle, compassionate care at every visit.
