Children’s Dentistry Aliso Viejo
We believe that children need a dental team that caters to their needs, putting them at ease from the time of their first appointment. We make sure that your young ones enjoy their dental checkups, learn healthy oral hygiene habits and maintain a bright smile for years to come.
The many dental solutions that we provide to children include
- Examinations and cleanings
- Fluoride treatments
- Restorations such as fillings
Starting Pediatric Visits Early in Life
We recommend that a child has their first dental checkup around their first birthday. Though the baby teeth they have will eventually be replaced with adult teeth, their oral health during their youngest years will influence the condition of their teeth later on. By teaching them about the importance of brushing and flossing early on, we can prevent other problems from happening in the future.
HELPING KIDS FEEL COMFORTABLE
To familiarize your child with what to expect at their first visit, consider checking out a library book. The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist and Show Me Your Smile!: A Visit to the Dentist (Dora the Explorer) are two examples that feature characters that your child is likely to know. The books effectively communicate how positive their visits to the dental office will be. You also can play a vital role by speaking encouragingly of your time at the dentist’s office.
Your kids are also welcome to bring in their favorite stuffed animal or blanket to foster a greater sense of security. Rest assured that when your child becomes a patient at our office, we’ll work to help them feel relaxed and comfortable at all times. From giving them a tour of the office to letting them “ride” in the dental chair, we’ll make their visits fun and involve them each step of the way!
