Children have special oral health needs that require special attention from specialized professionals.
A family dentist in Buena Park offers your child the opportunity to be treated by a qualified dentist with additional training in children’s oral health care.
The following services are offered by family dentists:
- Tooth Extractions
Circumstances that may necessitate a tooth extraction include risk of infection, orthodontic correction and wisdom teeth complications.
Irrespective of the reason, pediatric dentists are aware of children’s fear for such a presumably invasive procedure and know what to do to make your child comfortable and psychologically ready.
- Education on oral hygiene
Children below the age of ten know very little about what goes into achieving a bright healthy smile.
Most pediatric dentistry centers have programs to teach kids better hygiene methods and the importance of it.
- Space maintainers
A space maintainer is an appliance used to prevent adjacent teeth from subsiding into a gap left by a lost tooth.
It helps prevent misalignment and growth of crooked permanent teeth, which may prove to be bigger orthodontic problems in the future.
- Fluoride treatment
Fluoride serves as a common preventive treatment for tooth decay and cavities. Its application is usually a straightforward non-invasive procedure that can be performed right at the dentist’s office.
Usually, your child will return to normal use of their teeth about half an hour after the procedure has been completed.
