Preventive Dentistry at Pleasanton Pediatric Dentistry
Healthy smiles for healthy kids start with professional pediatric dentistry. At Pleasanton Pediatric Dentistry, your child's bright, healthy smile is our top priority. We use gentle, efficient cleaning techniques and hire caring, highly trained professionals. Our experienced team of specialists is invested in meeting all of your child's dental needs; from calming anxieties to teaching good habits, from regular check-ups to sophisticated dental surgery.
At Pleasanton Pediatric Dentistry, we take exceptional care of your child's oral health. Below are some of the preventive dental services that our practice provides.
Cleanings & Exams
Professional cleanings and exams performed by a hygienist and your dentist are as important to your child's dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair.
Cleanings & Screenings for Kids
Fluoride is a naturally occurring element, derived from fluorine. We need fluorine to help maintain bone mass, and protect us from dental decay and osteoporosis. Fluoride is important because it strengthens teeth and helps to prevent decay.
Special Needs Care
At Pleasanton Pediatric Dentistry, we work with children that have a wide range of needs. Many children (including patients with high anxiety) can benefit from a graduated introduction to dental visits and dental care, particularly if it is their first experience.
