A Child’s First Visit

Our pediatric dentist in Pasadena says the first visit is the most important

Young children are the most susceptible to tooth decay and cavities. This makes it especially important for parents and caregivers to pay attention to the things children are putting in their mouths and how they care for their teeth. Even though your children’s first set of teeth are lost, how they grow and their health are directly related to future problems your child may experience with their permanent teeth. That is why our children’s dentist in Pasadena suggests their first visit to the dentist should be 6 months after the appearance of their first tooth, which is usually around the age of one. Starting visits to the dentist this early has several benefits, including reducing the chances of your child having dental fear or anxiety. Early visits for dental cleanings and fluoride treatments will do wonders for helping your child’s teeth and gums stay health in the future. If you would like to schedule an appointment with our pediatric dentist in Pasadena, call us at (626) 340-4428.

Cavity Prevention and Diet

Our children’s dentist in Pasadena suggests a healthy balanced diet with limited sugar

Like we mentioned earlier, what goes into your child’s mouth has a direct affect on their oral health, and it is important to monitor. With that being said, there are a few steps you can take to help keep your child’s oral hygiene great. One of those steps includes watching what your child eats and drinks. Over one fourth of children aged 2-11 have dental cavities that are untreated. To help your child fight against cavities, follow these diet suggestions: 1. Limit sugar and carbohydrates in your child’s diet. Sugary and starchy foods contribute to the amount of bacteria that builds up in the mouth, which eventually is the cause of tooth decay. 2. Read labels on beverages with sugar. Many drinks contain more than the recommended daily amount of sugar for a healthy balanced diet. Yes, just one drink. 3. Make sure they drink plenty of water throughout the day. Staying hydrated with water will help saliva flush away the bacteria left in the mouth. 4. Watch out for particularly sticky foods like granola and peanut butter. Even though these options may be healthy, their particles like to hang around in the mouth. Make sure your child is brushing and flossing after eating sticky substances like these to avoid bacteria build up. If you monitor your child’s diet and follow the guidelines for balanced and healthy meal choices you can help their oral hygiene significantly. Pairing healthy meals with proper brushing and flossing techniques will help ensure your child doesn’t have to feel uncomfortable pain from tooth decay.

"The Importance of Fluoride"

"The Importance of Fluoride"

Our children’s dentist in Pasadena recommends the use of fluoride for cavity prevention

"When treating children, fluoride is an important part of your child’s cavity prevention. This mineral is known to help strengthen the enamel of teeth and fight tooth decay. Our pediatric dentist in Pasadena recommends using fluoride toothpaste for your child to help their teeth as they grow. As soon as you see your child’s first tooth, just putting a small amount of fluoride toothpaste on it from the beginning can help significantly. During your child’s visits, we will go over all of the best ways to go about brushing, flossing and caring for their teeth for complete cavity prevention."
