What Are the Benefits of Children's Dental Care?

Your kid will spend a lifetime with their teeth (we hope). We can help ensure their oral health success by getting them into the habit of visiting the dentist regularly. Some of the benefits of children's dentistry include:

  • Teaches your child proper oral hygiene habits
  • Stops the progression of potential dental issues
  • Your child receives treatment customized specifically for them
  • Aids in building confidence
  • Your child doesn't need to switch dentists as they age
  • Instills proper dental hygiene habits

What Will My Child’s First Dental Visit Be Like?

We will first schedule your child for a consultation at our friendly and modern office. We suggest you make your child's first dental appointment when their first tooth arrives.

Your child's first appointment will involve a thorough exam of their jaw, gums, and teeth (or tooth) from our very experienced and kind Dr. Omid Barkhordar. The initial visit is a great way for us to meet you and your child and to spot and stop any possible oral complications. A dental treatment is usually unnecessary at this stage of your child's dental development.

When and How Often Should I Bring My Child to the Dentist?

A baby should be brought to the dentist between 6 months and 1 year of age, around when the first tooth comes in. We strongly encourage you to make sure your child is brought in once every six months for their routine dental checkup. As your child gets older, we'll be there to make sure their smile is always something they can be proud of.

Do Kids Need Routine Dental Cleanings?

Yes, your child should see us at least twice per year for regular teeth cleanings. Our dental hygienists excel at helping kids feel calm and safe and will teach them how to brush and floss properly.

What Are Dental Sealants for Children?

Dental sealants are non-toxic coatings we place on children’s teeth to smooth over grooves in the teeth. The grooves can collect food and debris, which can cause cavities, and the sealants fix this problem.

What Is Sedation Dentistry for Kids?

Sometimes extremely anxious or squirmy, skittish children can benefit from sedation dentistry. We use safe, non-toxic sedation to help kids relax during their dental visit. Talk to us if you think your child might benefit from sedation dentistry, and we can plan ahead for you.

What Are Habit Breaking Appliances?

Habit breaking appliances are special dental appliances that stop kids from continuing bad habits that hurt their teeth. We can use these appliances to safely wean kids away from habits such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting. These habits can malform the teeth if not nipped in the bud.

What Are Dental Space Maintainers?

Dental space maintainers are used to create space for incoming permanent teeth to give them space when they erupt. These maintainers are helpful in reducing the need for braces later on.

What Does Children's Dental Care Cost?

At Gardena Dental Care, we accept most family dental insurance plans. Most dental insurance companies will include a free children's checkup and cleaning at least once per year. The costs are reasonable otherwise, and we offer financing and payment plans. Contact us for more information!
