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.

Here at Children’s Dental Group, our Sunnyvale pedodontist along with the rest of our staff love to help our young patients start their lives off right by using preventive services that will help them out later on. A major preventive service that our offer here at the Children’s Dental Group is the use of dental sealants. Dental sealants are made of a thin plastic, customized to fit seamlessly on your child’s new adult molars. These sealants protect hard-to-reach molars from decay, saving your child the pain and discomfort of a cavity, and saving you the hardship of having to finance a dental filling. Dental sealants can make a huge difference in your child’s dental health. Our Sunnyvale pedodontist has years of experienced and has come to find that young children are not always the best brushers! The new, adult molars in the back of the mouth especially tend to get neglected by younger patients, which is why dental sealants are most commonly used there. It is always important to instill good dental health knowledge in your children, but with dental sealants, your child can have an extra layer of protection that leaves you at ease. Dental sealants can protect your child’s teeth for as long as ten years. It is important to continually visit our Sunnyvale pedodontist so that we can check on your child’s dental health, and also check on their dental sealants if they have them.
