If you want to make sure that your child has a beautiful and healthful smile for a lifetime, you will want to make sure that he or she is a patient of ours at Children’s Dental Group. At our kids dental office in San Jose, your child will receive complete dental care including oral exams by our top-notch pediatric dentist.
It is now recommended that children have their first dental exam when their first baby tooth erupts, or when they reach one year of age – whichever occurs first. Even when your child has only baby teeth in his or her mouth, it is important that they visit our dental practice for care. Baby teeth play many important functions in your child’s mouth. A pediatric dental exam at our kids dental office in San Jose will make sure that your child’s teeth remain healthy. We also offer gentle dental cleanings and dental treatments to help your child’s teeth remain healthy. Since baby teeth play several important roles in your child’s mouth, it is important that they stay healthy for as long as they are needed. Baby teeth act as place savers for permanent teeth which have yet to erupt. If a baby tooth is not present, a permanent tooth may end up erupting in the wrong position, causing serious orthodontic problems later on. Baby teeth also allow your child to develop clear speaking habits, and to chew his or her food thoroughly for proper digestion. If teeth do not remain healthy, they can fall out prematurely. Fluoride treatments will help to strengthen tooth enamel, and are usually recommended after each dental cleaning. We also offer dental sealants to protect your child’s teeth from developing dental cavities. The dental sealants are painted onto your child’s teeth after they are cleaned and dried, and are used to protect the flat chewing surfaces of your child’s pre-molars and molars from developing dental cavities.
