At Pacific Dental Group, we strive to provide the highest quality of oral care to our younger patients. Our offices, located in North Hollywood and Monterey Park, offer pediatric dentistry that includes:
Child’ First Visit: A child’s first dental visit should take place six months after their first tooth erupts. Parents should take the time to discuss with their child the importance of having healthy teeth. We suggest parents schedule a friendly visit to the office, which allows the child to spend time familiarizing themselves with the environment and our staff.
Your child’s complete check-up consists of examining their teeth and gums for decay and other dental issues. The doctor or hygienist will clean their teeth and demonstrate to the parent and child the proper way to brush and floss.
Preventive treatments are important to ensure your child’s teeth remain healthy and strong. Tooth decay can risk your child’s oral health. We recommend regular professional teeth cleanings, oral exams,fluoride treatments and sealants as the best preventive measure for your child and their developing teeth.
Restorations recover the health of a tooth and puts strength back into their bite. Primary teeth are important to your child’s tooth development because they are at the early stages of speaking and eating. There may come a time when they need a cavity repaired. Composite, or BPA-free fillings, correct this problem.
Emergency Dentistry: Children love to run and play. Unfortunately, they also fall and hurt themselves. Most dental emergencies consist of toothaches and knocked out teeth. In either case, it is important you contact the office.
Spacers: Your child’s baby teeth are important. Baby teeth are responsible for holding the space for the adult teeth to emerge. When a tooth is lost too soon, we can fill that spot with a space maintainer to ensure we hold the space for a permanent tooth.
