Pediatric dental care recommendations by Flintridge Dental Group is a broad concept than just looking at the teeth. We perform a review of the child’s health history to determine if there is a need for any special dental care. This pediatric dental examination includes the health and condition of your child’s teeth, soft tissues, gums, head, and neck. The dentist also monitors the growth of the jaws and development of the teeth and evaluates any oral habits, such as thumb sucking. We use all these factors to make a diagnosis. Then we create a treatment plan and provide you with the instructions for pediatric dental care.
Pediatric Office Cleaning
The dentist or hygienist will clean the child’s teeth to remove any plaque or calculus. Without treatment, this build up can cause gum disease and tooth decay. We also use fluoride to strengthen and treat your teeth and enable them to resist tooth decay.
