Taking Kids to the Dentist

Taking kids to the dentist regularly is just as important as taking them for regular pediatrician visits. Your child’s baby teeth are critical to their good dental and overall health, and they act as placeholders for the secondary teeth that will soon be making their appearance. Our LA dentist offers kid-friendly dental care that can help your child establish good dental hygiene habits right from the start.

Children should have their first dental visit when their first teeth begin to erupt and no later than twelve months. These primary teeth help your baby learn to chew food and speak clearly. Keeping them healthy requires the same good dental habits required for adult teeth. We offer dental education for children of all ages and provide a wide range of preventive and restorative pediatric dental treatments, including checkups, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, fillings, and dental crowns.

Most kids need to visit the dentist about every six months just like adults. However, some kids may need to visit more frequently based on their personal oral health needs. Call our office today to learn more about pediatric dentistry or to schedule your child’s appointment with our kids dentist in Los Angeles.
