Preventative Pediatric Dentistry in Rancho Cucamonga
The most important preventative dentistry measures include promoting good oral hygiene habits to your children at home on a daily basis. That includes correct brushing, daily flossing and eating a proper, nutritious diet. In addition to teaching your child how to care for his or her teeth, we offer dental sealants to keep out pesky germs and help avoid tooth decay. Made from a hardened plastic material, dental sealants help protect children against tooth decay for one to five years.
Sugary snacks, soda and sticky cand such as jelly beans and gummy bears can severely shorten a dental sealant's lifespan and damage your child's teeth. The more parents get involved with their children’s oral habits, the better the children will be as they grow into adulthood. Daily brushing, flossing and periodic fluoride treatments will also help maintain your child's oral health for many years. It's one of the greatest gifts you can give your child.
In addition to practicing preventative dentistry, we provide pediatric cosmetic dentistry, including dental fillings (white fillings), dental sealants and white crowns to protect cracked or chipped teeth. Of course, we also provide regular kids dental care, cleaning teeth and removing tooth decay as needed. Our pediatric dentist will also be happy to advise you about the appropriate vaccines for your children to protect their overal health while they are growing.
