Taking care of your dental health is important, and it is something that people of all ages need to keep in mind. When it comes to dental care, it is essential that you visit your dentist twice a year for routine exams and cleanings, which can do a lot to prevent dental problems like cavities or gum disease. The same should apply to children, who need to start seeing a pediatric dentist from around the time they begin teething. If you are in search of a Sunnyvale children’s dentist then we can help ensure that your children get the kids’ dental care they need here at Children’s Dental Group.
Kids should see a dentist as often as older kids, teens, and adults do. Even though young children have baby teeth that will one day fall out and make way for permanent teeth, they should still be taken care of. Baby teeth are sensitive and can be prone to decay and childhood gum disease. These concerns can be painful to live with, lead to eating issues, pain and general discomfort, and it can have a lasting effect on your child’s dental health. Baby teeth are placeholders for the teeth that will eventually replace them. They often develop in ways that later teeth will once the time comes, and aside from keeping them healthy to better ensure healthy development of secondary teeth, monitoring the developing of baby teeth can also help identify bite problems, malocclusions or crooked teeth that can persist as well. Interceptive orthodontics may be necessary in these cases, but aside from that children need preventative care as well as dental care when cavities or gum disease occur. Here at Children’s Dental Group, our Sunnyvale children’s dentist can offer comprehensive exams and screenings, professional cleanings, and procedures like dental fillings, gum treatment, tooth extraction and more.
If it is time your child started seeing a Sunnyvale children’s dentist regularly, call us here at Children’s Dental Group to learn more and to set up a preliminary exam for your child.
