Toluca Lake Dentist Provides Key Pediatric Services and Treatments

Pediatric dental care can set your child up for dental health success for years to come. Our Toluca Lake family dentists are proud to offer the treatments that young patients need in order to stay well, and feel confident about their smiles.

Let’s learn more about what types of treatments and services are beneficial for children to undergo…

Professional dental cleanings

Thorough, regularly completed dental cleanings will help your child avoid dental decay and oral infections. You obviously want to avoid these issues because they can be painful for the child. However, you also want to keep primary teeth healthy so that your child can reap the full benefit of having these “baby” teeth. Primary teeth enable your child to learn to speak correctly, and to try new foods.

Effective restorative treatments

When cavities do pop up, it is very important that they are treated in a timely manner. These dental infections, if left unaddressed, can actually spread to other teeth, gum tissue, and bone tissue.

Fluoride supplementation

If your child is susceptible to cavities, or has otherwise diminished enamel, our dental team may treat his or her teeth with a topical fluoride solution. This treatment is done in-office; it is designed to help fortify enamel, so that teeth can resist bacteria and oral acid.

One on one education

When your child comes in for his or her appointment, our dental team will talk to them about the importance of at-home and professional dental care. We are here to answer their questions, and help them see the dentist as a partner in dental care, rather than as someone to be feared.

Give our Toluca Lake dentists a call if you have questions about pediatric dentistry, or if you would like to schedule an appointment for your children. This is the time to give your child a strong oral health foundation!
