Often the most neglected member of the family when it comes to oral care is the young child, All too often parents may neglect to bring their children to the dentist for preventative care for their primary teeth. At our Sunnyvale sedation dentist pediatric tooth care including teeth cleaning and checkups are extremely important because the child’s developing mouth and teeth should be monitored to make sure that there are no problems that need correcting either in the formation of the jaw or in the development of the teeth. Children should also be made aware at the earliest possible age of the importance of good dental hygiene habits and begin to practice them.
It is important that the young child enthusiastically cooperate in his/her own good dental health. Our Sunnyvale sedation dentist teaches them to become an active participant by instructing them in the proper methods of brushing and flossing. Our doctor and entire staff go out of their way to make each of your child’s visits a fun and pleasant experience so that they want to come back and don’t develop any fear of going to the dentist. A big part of our pediatric dental service is prevention, aside from teaching children to brush their own teeth our practice emphases a regular teeth cleaning to rid the teeth of any plaque or tartar buildup to prevent the start of decay and cavities.
Our Sunnyvale sedation dentist knows that some of our young patients may be a bit apprehensive about sitting through a longer dental procedure or maybe too young to sit still while our staff works on their teeth. For these patients our practice offers mild sedation as an option. Our practice has a dental anesthesiologist administer the proper amount of sedation for the child and the procedure involved allowing our doctor to complete any procedure while the young patient feels no pain or apprehension. Please bring your child to our office to begin a program of good oral care.
