A dentist’s office can be a scary place for children. We understand that it can be overwhelming for children to visit a dentist for examination or routine checkups. At Encino Dental Health and Cosmetics, we handle children with care by making their visits full of smiles and joy.
Our experienced staff is trained to work with children and easily develops a trusting relationship with them. We encourage parents to bring in their children for oral care and therefore ensure that our environment is healthy and friendly. In addition to their comfort, we leave them with a beautiful pearly white smile.
We encourage parents to bring their children for their first dental examination between the age of 1 to 3. Tracking the progress of dental development can help us perform preventative care to ensure they develop healthy and strong teeth.
It is common for children to feel uncomfortable with strangers at such a young age. Therefore, we recommend parents bring their children before the consultation to get them accustomed to the environment.
At Encino, we perform a detailed examination, inspecting all their teeth and gums after making them comfortable. We guide children about different oral hygiene methods using a child-friendly learning approach.
In addition, we provide gentle preventative treatment to children who may need dental attention. We suggest different fluoride supplements that are safe for children and protect them from cavities. If you are comfortable, we also recommend parents dental sealants that protect molars from cavities and decay, keeping teeth healthy and strong. All these treatments are effective but simple and pain-free.
The best way to introduce your child to dental care is by regularly bringing them in for a visit. Our child-friendly environment introduces them to healthy habits that last with them for a lifetime. Parents play an important role in the oral health care of the child.
Help dentists make the experience of dental care a positive one for the child by discussing different procedures and treatments with them before the appointment. You can teach the child about the significance of dental care and encourage them to practice effective oral hygiene.
At Encino Dental Health and Cosmetics, we provide parents with essential information and child-friendly resources that can help them encourage the child to adopt a healthy oral routine.
