Our Children’s Dentistry Will Surpass Your Expectations

We want every child who visits us not only to have the best experience possible but also to receive the essential dental care they need to keep their teeth healthy and enjoy a confident smile. If your child is a new patient, we have several goals for their first dental visit:

  • Pediatric Dental Exam – If you have an infant or small toddler, we may do a “lap-to-lap” examination of your child’s teeth.
  • Complete Digital Dental X-rays – We’ll want an up-close look at their developing teeth, bones, and nerves.
  • Professional Teeth Cleaning – Our hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish their teeth to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria.
  • Special Fluoride Varnish – We may recommend applying fluoride to your child’s teeth to help prevent cavities.
  • Discussion of Home Care Instructions – Our team will instruct you on how to keep your child’s smile healthy at home.
  • Discussion of Dietary Trends and Oral Habits – This discussion is an essential part of a comprehensive at-home care routine.
  • Anticipatory Guidance – We’ll explain what you can expect with your child’s developing teeth between now and their next dental checkup.
  • Airway and Sleep Disordered Breathing Assessment – We will evaluate your child’s airway health and discuss if your child has any sleep-disordered breathing issues. If they do, we can treat them with the innovative HealthyStart approach.

If necessary, we also offer tooth extractions, custom-fit athletic mouthguards, and night guards to prevent harmful teeth grinding. When needed, we can repair their teeth with restorative treatments like drill-free tooth fillings and metal-free pediatric dental crowns.

Common Questions About Pediatric Dentistry

What is pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dental care is specialized dental care designed to help children under 18 enjoy happy, healthy smiles. Pediatric dentistry should help set a child up for a lifetime of good oral hygiene habits and a beautiful smile. Dr. Susan Kim, your child’s board-certified pediatric dentist, is ready to help them maintain optimal oral health.

Why is pediatric dentistry important?

Pediatric dentistry is important because children have different dental needs than adults do. Their jaws and teeth are still developing and need the skills of a dentist who is experienced in treating children on a regular basis. We love seeing kids of all ages in our office, so you can feel comfortable bringing them here for their smile care. Dr. Kim is certified to use HealthyStart, a solution that promotes healthy development to help your child avoid the need for orthodontic care.

When should a child first visit the dentist?

Generally, children should visit the dentist when their first tooth comes through, or by age 1. It’s important that your child feels comfortable about visiting the dentist, so we maintain a kid-friendly atmosphere to make their dental experiences positive from an early age. We’ll provide preventive care, closely monitor their dental development, and help with issues like pacifier use and thumb sucking.

Can I prevent cavities in my child’s teeth?

Good oral hygiene and regular care from a pediatric dentist go a long way toward preventing cavities. Make sure your child brushes at least twice a day with a toothpaste that contains fluoride, and see us every six months for an exam and cleaning. It’s also a good idea to limit their consumption of sugary or highly acidic foods ad drinks. For added protection against cavities, ask your dental team about treatment with fluoride and/or dental sealants.

Are pacifiers bad for teeth?

They can be. They can affect the alignment of your child’s teeth and may even cause changes in the roof of the mouth. Dental problems related to pacifier use are more common in children older than age 2, those who vigorously suck their pacifier, and those who use one all of the time. If you’re concerned about your child’s pacifier use, let us know. We can offer suggestions to help wean them off a pacifier.
