Lynwood Pediatric Dentist
All too often parents may neglect to bring their children to the dentist for preventative care for their primary teeth. Regular teeth cleaning and checkups are important for every member of the family including young children because the child’s developing mouth and teeth should be monitored to make sure that there are no problems that need correcting either in the formation of the jaw or in the development of the teeth. In addition our Lynwood pediatric dentist can also detect any instances of decay invading a tooth and correct the problem before it becomes a more serious issue. Children should also be made aware at the earliest possible age of the importance of good dental hygiene habits and begin to practice them.
It is important that the young child enthusiastically cooperate in his/her own good dental health. Our Lynwood pediatric dentist at Children’s Dental Group teaches them to become an active participant by instructing them in the proper methods of brushing and flossing. Our doctors and entire staff go out of their way to make each of your child’s visits a fun and pleasant experience so that they want to come back and don’t develop any fear of going to the dentist. A big part of our pediatric dental service is prevention, aside from teaching children to brush their own teeth our practice emphases regular teeth cleaning to rid the teeth of any plaque or tartar buildup to prevent the start of decay and cavities.
Teeth cleaning are only part of our pediatric preventative program. Our practice recommends the application of sealants on young teeth. Sealants are thin plastic coatings that are painted in the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, molars and premolars. These sealants bond into the grooves and depressions on the chewing surfaces to help prevent decay. Our doctor also recommends fluoride treatments, which strengthen the enamel of the child’s teeth to help resist decay. Don’t wait until your child’s permanent teeth start to erupt bring them into our office much earlier so that we can begin to make sure that they enjoy great oral health.

If you are looking for an excellent dental practice where your child can receive complete pediatric dental exams, you will want to bring your child to see us at Children’s Dental Group. Our expert 90280 dentist, can provide your child with gentle dental care so that your child’s teeth and gums will remain healthy.
It is recommended that children visit our 90280 dentist for their first pediatric dental exam when their first baby tooth erupts or when they reach one year of age – whichever occurs first. Although baby teeth will not last in your child’s mouth forever, they play several important roles in your child’s oral development. So it is important that they remain healthy and intact for as long as they are needed. Baby teeth act as placeholders for permanent teeth. If a baby tooth falls out prematurely, it can cause orthodontic problems down the road. Additionally, baby teeth help your child to chew food thoroughly for proper digestion, and also help your child to develop clear speaking habits. It is important that all of your child’s teeth remain healthy, and that their gums remain healthy, as well. At our office, we will make sure that your child has a fun and stress-free dental experience so that he or she does not develop any fears of coming to the dentist. In fact, they will learn that regular dental visits are important in helping to keep their teeth healthy, and their smile beautiful. We also offer different treatments to help your child’s teeth fight off dental cavities. We offer fluoride treatments, after dental cleanings, to strengthen your child’s tooth enamel. We also offer dental sealants to protect the flat chewing surfaces of your child’s premolars and molars. The dental sealants will keep plaque from adhering to the teeth, as well as act as a physical barrier between your teeth and any harmful cavity-causing materials that naturally develop in your child’s mouth.
