Does your child need dental work done? Has your child had their first visit to the dentist? Does your child just need a regular cleaning or are you looking for orthodontic treatment? Requesting an appointment is available online 24/7 and is as simple as submitting a simple form.
We have several important goals during your child's first visit to our office. First, we want to introduce your child to staff and the dental setting in as non-threatening a way as possible.
The main goal of this procedure is to preserve the baby tooth, since baby teeth help to maintain adequate room for the permanent teeth.
Establishing healthy habit early on is the key to a lifetime of dental health. We will help teach your child about healthy oral habits and how to prevent future problems and decay.
Children continually get new teeth from age 3 months to the age 6 years. Most children have a full set of twenty (20) primary teeth by the time they are 3 years old. As a child nears the age 6, the jaw grows making room for the permanent teeth.
There are many situations that may require orthodontic treatment. Maintaining straight teeth and an even bite are the most common reasons for receiving orthodontic treatments.
Mouth guards are commonly used in sports to protect the teeth from accidental damage. We provide custom fitted mouth guards for our patients that ensure a higher level of protect from injury.
In general, children need x-rays more often than adults. Their mouths grow and change rapidly. They are more susceptible to tooth decay than adults.
Our offices provide pediatric services such as general cleaning, orthodontics, and surgery. We can help teach your child healthy oral habits and can ensure that their primary teeth will be healthy and straight. Our offices make it convenient to those living in or near La Jolla, Chula Vista, or El Cajon to receive great cosmetic dentistry!
