Children have different needs from adults, and this is especially true when it comes to dental health. One of the most important considerations when finding dental care for your kids is their fear of dentists. Many children are afraid of dentists because of the pain and discomfort they fear will be associated with dental care.
This is the reason why it’s important to bring your kids to a dentist who really specializes in pediatric dentistry. At Ace Dental in Roseville, our head dentist Dr. Karanvir Sibia, DDS, strives to provide the most comfortable and pain-free dental experience for all young patients.
It’s a common misconception that children’s oral health isn’t as important as adults because eventually their permanent teeth will come in. However, the condition of their baby teeth can predict their oral health in adulthood.
Here are the reasons why you should bring your child to the dentist regularly:
At Ace Dental in Roseville, we offer the following pediatric services:
Children are at a high risk of developing tooth decay, but preventative measures, such as sealants can reduce this risk. Sealants are made of biocompatible materials such as resin, glass ionomer, or thermoplastic.
They come in liquid form which is applied into the deep grooves of the tooth. Once hardened, they can prevent the accumulation of food and bacteria in these grooves where cavities most commonly develop. Sealants are a great investment for children’s oral health, as compared to the costs of treatment that your kids will need if decay is allowed to set in.
If your kids play sports, especially those wherein close contact is inevitable, they will need mouth guards to protect their teeth and jaws, and even reduce the effects of concussion. Many athletes have experienced oral injuries because they were not wearing the proper protective gear.
Mouth guards are simple and comfortable plastic molds worn over the teeth. They are designed to block forces that can damage the teeth, hurt the tongue, or dislocate the jaws. There are several types of mouth guards, but custom-made models are the best for children.
At Ace Dental Roseville, we value the importance of lifelong dental care and treatment. We believe that the highest quality of dental care starts at an early age. Children who are taught to visit the dentist regularly will carry this practice even as adults.
Our dentist Dr. Karanvir Sibia is well-trained in handling pediatric patients. They both have a natural charisma with kids, having a son and daughter of their own. They understand the concerns parents have about their children’s oral health, and also know how children feel about dental care. They work closely with patients and make them feel as comfortable and safe as possible.
