The Importance of Preventative Pediatric Dental Care

Instilling positive dental habits in childhood lays the foundation for a lifetime of optimal oral health. By fostering good dental practices at a young age, we empower individuals to prevent potential dental issues that may arise in adulthood. This proactive approach not only contributes to the overall well-being of the teeth and gums but also promotes a sense of responsibility and awareness about the significance of oral hygiene. At Great Coast Dental, we emphasize the importance of early habit formation to ensure that our young patients grow up with healthy and radiant smiles.

Good Oral Hygiene

At home, regular brushing and flossing are important steps for maintaining pediatric oral health. Take the lead in cleaning your child’s teeth. Then, when your child is old enough, provide supervision to ensure safe and effective hygiene.

Baby bottle tooth decay

Avoid putting your child to bed or down for a nap with a sugary beverage in his or her bottle. This bathes the child’s teeth in sugar leading to a production of acids that cause decay.

Checkups and Exams

Regular pediatric checkups are crucial for maintaining your child’s dental health, encompassing general cleaning, a comprehensive dental exam, X-rays for in-depth analysis, and dietary consultations for promoting long-term oral well-being.

Essentially, there are three techniques to improve your smile: In-office power bleaching, bonding, and porcelain veneers (which are also called porcelain laminates..

At Great Coast Dental, we provide Invisalign or porcelain veneers for patients who have this problem.

With Invisalign, teeth are gradually straightened by wearing a new set of transparent, removable aligners every week.

However, porcelain veneers are tiny, highly attractive porcelain shells that are bonded to the teeth to provide the appearance of greater straightness.

While porcelain veneers can produce results in as little as two to three weeks, Invisalign can take up to a year to complete the process.

At Great Coast Dental, we make every effort to provide same-day emergency appointments for individuals in need of dental care. As soon as you become aware of your emergency, we implore you to contact us by phone or email to set up an appointment. Call us at (805) 643-0700 for more information on emergency dentistry.
