At Children’s Dental Group, our Pasadena pediatric dentist and the rest of our staff believe that it is never too early to start your child on a path toward a lifetime of optimal oral health and hygiene. Though the timing of tooth eruption can differ from child to child, you can generally expect your child’s first teeth to erupt between the ages of six months to one year. As soon as teeth begin erupting, it is helpful for you to bring your child to our Pasadena pediatric dentist for cleanings and examinations. For children under the age of about two years old, the cleaning and exam is not very extensive. It will consist of a visual evaluation of how your child’s teeth are coming and developing.
These early visits are usually more useful for the parent, as it is a time where we can give nutritional advice and diet tips to benefit your child’s oral health. As your child grows older, the exams and cleanings will become more thorough each time they visit Children’s Dental Group. Our friendly staff members will clean and floss your child’s teeth, perform a fluoride treatment, perform x-rays if needed, and examine your child’s teeth to see if there are any issues that need to be addressed. We also strongly believe in the importance of education for pediatric patients, so we will instruct you and your child about oral hygiene habits at each and every visit to Children’s Dental Group. We can also recommend further preventative dental procedures for your child, such as dental sealants, interceptive orthodontics, and more.
