Costa Mesa dentist describes pediatric and children’s dental care
At Smiles4OC, our team is dedicated to building lifelong relationships with patients and families, young and old. We encourage families to enjoy treatment pediatric and children’s dental care needs at facility in the Costa Mesa area. Drs. Rolfes, Do, and Dunne serve patients of all ages at Smiles4OC and are constantly welcoming new patients into their practice for comprehensive dental care.
Pediatric and children’s dental care is an important aspect of dentistry that focuses on the health and wellness of smiles for children as young as six months old. Our team encourages parents to bring their children in whenever their first teeth come through the gum line. Drs. Rolfes, Do, and Dunne believe that the earlier patients are brought into the dental practice and introduced to the staff and environment, the less likely they are to develop fears and anxieties of dental care. This also reduces the risk of periodontal disease and cavities as these children are more likely to maintain their oral health for a lifetime.
Drs. Rolfes, Do, and Dunne can work with parents to help them determine how often their children should have an appointment for their dental care. In most instances, children will benefit from the same visits as adults: twice a year. During these recall visits, children can enjoy a professional cleaning and an examination to check for any concerns, and may even have sealants applied to reduce the risk of periodontal disease and decay. Parents can ask their dental team about these additional services to keep problems at bay and improve their child’s oral health from the very beginning.
