When it comes to your child’s smile, you probably have a whole lot of questions, luckily, Impression Dental Care is here to help. We are proud to offer pediatric dentistry in Huntington Beach for our whole community and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Interested in scheduling a dental appointment for your child? Contact Impression Dental Care today, we’d be happy to get them on our schedule.
At Impression Dental Care we recommend your child visit the dentist once their first tooth erupts. If that is not possible, your child should have their first appointment at least by the age of one.
Following your child’s first dental appointment, we recommend routine, preventive care at least twice a year. Scheduling routine, professional dental care can greatly reduce their risk of tooth decay, cavities, infections and even gum disease.
When it comes to caring for your child’s smile, home care is highly important as well. You should be brushing your child’s gums with a soft wash cloth prior to any teeth erupting. Once their first tooth has erupted, you should switch to a small, infant toothbrush. Flossing should begin once two teeth are next to each other.
At Impression Dental Care we offer a range of pediatric dental care options that can help keep your child’s smile clean, healthy and protected. This includes oral examinations, dental cleanings, fluoride treatments and even dental sealants. In the event your child experiences a complication such as tooth decay, infection or even gingivitis, we also have a variety of restorative treatment options that can help address the problem and prevent future complications.
