If you want to make sure that your child has the very best dental care, you should bring him or her in to see our Sunnyvale pedodontist at Children’s Dental Group.
A pedodontist is a dentist who specializes in the care of children’s teeth. Our Sunnyvale pedodontist will be able to treat any tooth problems that your child may have, and help to make sure that your child’s teeth stay free of dental cavities. At our dental office, we offer gentle and complete dental exams and cleanings to ensure that children’s teeth remain healthy. Even if your child only has baby teeth in his or her mouth, it is important that they come to see our pediatric dentist so that these teeth have the greatest chance of remaining healthy and playing the important roles that they serve in your child’s mouth. Baby teeth play many important roles, including, acting as placeholders for teeth that have yet to erupt, allowing for complete chewing of your child’s food, and helping your child to develop clear speaking habits. Dental sealants will help your child’s teeth to stay cavity-free. They are applied to the flat chewing surfaces of your child’s premolars and molars. First your child’s teeth are cleaned and dried, and then the dental sealant material is painted onto the tooth. The sealant material will fill in the pits and grooves on your child’s teeth, so that plaque and other cavity causing materials will not be able to stick to them. The dental sealants will also act as a physical barrier between your child’s teeth and harmful cavity-causing substances in the mouth. At our dental practice, we also offer fluoride treatments after each dental cleaning to help your child’s tooth enamel remain as cavity-resistant as possible.
