Frequently Asked Questions
Why is pediatric dentistry important?
The sooner your child attends their first dental visits, the sooner they can begin a lifetime of healthy smiles. Children should learn the importance of good oral health early on, and dental visits are a great start. Starting routine dental checkups allows the dentist to detect and diagnose problems like cavities and decay before they can progress.
When should my child attend their first dental visit?
It’s recommended that your child attends their first dental appointment after their first tooth has emerged. Dentists can detect underlying health issues and provide necessary treatment to prevent complications like tooth decay or dental caries. Call our Laguna Hills, CA dental office at (949) 586-1930 to schedule your child’s visit with Dr. Löberg.
What are the most common dental problems in children?
Some of the most common pediatric dental issues include:
- Tooth decay
- Tooth sensitivity
- Malocclusion (teeth/ jaw alignment issues)
- Gum disease
- Premature tooth loss
To avoid these and other dental conditions, it’s best to take your child to the dentist when they grow their first tooth. Our skilled dentists will help set them on the course to good oral health for life.
What if my child has a dental emergency?
If your child is experiencing a dental emergency, where you take them depends on the severity of the injury. If a toothache is accompanied by a fever or excessive bleeding, go to the emergency room right away. However, if your child has a mild toothache, a knocked-out tooth, or tooth sensitivity, make an emergency dental appointment with their dentist.
We provide caring emergency dentistry services to patients of all ages in Laguna Hills, CA. Call our office at (949) 586-1930 to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
