Early treatment and prevention is the best way to help your children maintain optimal oral health. It’s easier to prevent a problem than to treat it! A friendly and inviting pediatric dentist can help set the foundation for your child’s dental care. Good dental habits establish a reliable foundation and make a significant difference in the long run. A great place to start is with early examinations (when their teeth are beginning to erupt), developing a solid flossing and brushing routine, avoiding harmful habits, and visiting the dentist regularly. If your kids start playing sports, a professional, custom-made mouthguard will protect their teeth against damage. If you’d like to start your child off with an excellent foundation for oral hygiene, California Dental Care is here to help!
