Our team loves building long-lasting relationships with the children who visit, and we’re excited that you plan to bring your child in to see us!
To help you feel more comfortable with your child’s dental visit at Advanced Dentistry by Design, we’ve put together some useful information about children’s dental care, including basic information about appointments and common dental issues we see in our office.
Children’s Dentistry Visit in San Jose
Dr. Victor Woodlief and the rest of our dedicated team will strive to make your child feel as comfortable as possible in our friendly San Jose dental office. We’ll introduce ourselves to your little one and try to get to know them, making the visit pleasant and even fun, so they won’t be afraid to come back and see us again.
Then, we’ll thoroughly examine your child’s oral health and dental situation. If we find any issues, we’ll discuss possible treatment options and intervention techniques with you, creating a plan for long-term oral health. We may also discuss at-home oral health habits, nutrition for oral health, and other relevant topics.
We always welcome questions from both you and your child, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions that come to mind during your visit.
Benefits of Early Exams
With early childhood dental exams, we can start treatment on any developing dental problems early on, including with early intervention orthodontics. Taking action with orthodontic treatments at a young age often makes the treatments easier and more effective, which is an excellent benefit for our patients.
We can also provide dental fillings for cavities, in addition to education on how to prevent further cavities from developing, and we can track the progress of their oral health as they grow.
Preventive care and early intervention are key ways to prevent the need for complex dental care down the road, so we always recommend early dental exams for children in San Jose.
Common Children’s Dental Issues
There are a few dental issues that we see commonly in children, and we like to share those with parents so they can do their best to avoid them.
A widespread issue is, of course, cavities. However, with good oral hygiene at home, regular dental cleanings, and preventive treatments, like sealants and fluoride, it’s possible to stay cavity-free!
Tooth and gum injuries are also common in children because they are often exceptionally energetic and may put things in their mouths that don’t belong there or chew on hard objects. It’s also possible for children to develop gum disease.
Fortunately, we’re here to make sure your child enjoys outstanding oral health, and we can help you avoid or treat the issues mentioned above.
