Pediatric Dentist Los Angeles


Pediatric Dentistry in BakersfieldWe want your little one’s first dental visit to be pleasant. To help your child feel more comfortable, tell him what to expect at his visit.
 
We talk simply, honestly and reassuringly to the children that visit our practice. We will help your child understand the purpose and expectations of each treatment.
 
It is our goal to make you and your family’s experience a enjoyable one. Infants start cutting their first teeth between the ages of 6 and 12 months.
 
That means that when your baby turns one, he’s ready to see a dentist. Bringing your baby in at this age will set a life time of healthy oral care in motion.
 
Your Child’s First Teeth
 
Somewhere between month six and month twelve of your baby’s life, you’ll experience the pangs of cutting teeth. More teeth will sprout until your child is around 3 years old.
 
Your baby may be fussy when cutting teeth, but you can help ease his pains by massaging his gums with a damp cloth or your clean finger. A cold cloth can help relieve throbbing along his gum line.
 
Many parents find that their babies get relief through teething toys Your child will have 20 primary teeth before they begin to shed.
 
Between your child’s sixth and twenty-first birthday, all his primary teeth will fall out and the permanent teeth will replace them. Counting wisdom teeth, adults have 28 teeth.
 
Embracing Oral Hygiene from Birth
 
Once your baby’s teeth come in, keep an eye on them. Specifically watch for any lines that may appear or any changes in the color of the tooth, as these symptoms could mean decay.
 
Brush your baby’s teeth after each meal or feeding and then again before bed. Foods and beverage high in sugar can target your baby’s teeth, making after-meal brushing extremely important.
 
Create a fun atmosphere around your child’s dental routine from the beginning. After that first tooth pokes through, it’s time to brush it.
 
Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and a tiny dab of toothpaste. Don’t use fluoride toothpaste until your child turns two.
 
Go over infant tooth-brushing instructions before you start. Talk with your dentist about flossing your baby’s teeth.
 
Give us a call right away if you see any symptoms of deterioration.
 
Visiting the Dentist Routinely
 
Sugars stay in your baby’s mouth from food and beverages. These sugars, if not removed, turn into acids. These acids can attack and decay your baby’s teeth.
 
Primary teeth have higher risks of deterioration, as children don’t always brush and floss when they’re supposed to. Spark a lifetime of good oral care and brush and floss your child’s teeth regularly.
 
Bring your child to the dentist twice a year for cleanings and examinations. We suggest cleanings and fluoride treatments every six months to keep your child’s smile healthy and resilient.
 
Children also receive sealants to thwart tooth decay. Sealants give your child a smoother surface to brush, meaning plaque has nowhere to hide. Talk with your dentist about sealants for your child.
