Pediatric dentists have 2-3 years of additional specialized dental training to keep children’s needs in mind. While we can all relate to fears of seeing a dentist, just imagine a dental exam from your child’s perspective. We believe that tiny mouths deserve tiny tools and gentle treatment.
Our 5-star-rated Laguna Hills pediatric dentist offers everything a normal dentist does – X-rays, teeth cleanings, dental surgeries if necessary – all on a child’s level. We can alert you to ways to help your child avoid the tooth decay that can lead to painful cavities, and we continue to treat children’s teeth as they mature through their teen years.
One of the first questions most parents have when it comes to bringing their child to a pediatric dentist is, “Does it cost more?” Bringing your child to a pediatric dentist typically does not cost you any more money than if you brought them to a general dentist. In fact, you will most likely save money.
Your child’s first dental visit is not nearly as overwhelming as it may seem now. This is especially true when you opt for a pediatric dentist. Most people find that they love taking their children to a pediatric dentist, because they get more specialized care, as well as the experience needed when working with youngsters.
By bringing your child to Löberg Dental, you will help get your child off to a great start and help provide them with oral health habits and benefits that last a lifetime. Ultimately, this will save money, because your child will have fewer cavities and require less dental work in both the short and long-term.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, as well as the American Academy of Pediatrics, both recommend that the first dental visit should take place by the time your child is one year old or once their first tooth has erupted – whichever one takes place first. Prevention is the first line of defense when it comes to a healthy mouth. Taking your child this young to the dentist is the most effective way to ensure their oral health is off to a great start.
