Children need regular dental check-ups and occasional treatment just like adults. At We Care Dental, they can get care from a skilled pediatric dentist. Our goal is to provide them with proper dental care to ensure they have strong and healthy teeth when they grow up.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
It might surprise a lot of parents, but your child’s first dental visit should be as early as six months after they are born. It ensures that things like bottle tooth decay and thumb-sucking aren’t going to cause long-term issues down the road.
We know it’s hard to get kids to visit the dentist, let alone sit still for an entire appointment. That’s why we have an amazing pediatric dentist and staff that love kids and are super-patient. Contact us today for quality family dentistry in Lynwood, CA!
Dr. Karia provides dental veneer treatments to patients who want a better-looking smile without the need for more intensive options like orthodontics. We recommend veneers to create a straighter, natural-looking smile for those who struggle with:
During the veneer process, we place a thin piece of porcelain or composite material and cement it onto the tooth’s surface. The goal is to add an extra layer to the front of the tooth, covering up any imperfections. Dental veneers serve as a sturdy “mask” for your teeth, and look completely natural.
Why Should Your Child See A Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric dentist is trained to treat kids. They have the knowledge and expertise to recognize when dental developmental issues are present. If untreated, many of those developmental conditions can cause problems in adulthood that can be extremely hard to correct and reverse. Thus, when kids are still in the growing phase, it’s essential to ensure that everything looks as it should and address anything that doesn't.
This also gives parents the opportunity to become knowledgeable about the typical progression of children’s oral health so they can also keep an eye on things. For instance, do you know when your child’s first tooth should typically come in? We’ll answer these types of questions and beyond so you leave our office as a well-informed parent who knows what to expect. Parenting is full of surprises and obstacles, so let’s make this part easier by tackling your child’s dental care together!
We aim to provide long-term dental services for our patients. We love seeing patients grow up and transition from having their adult teeth grow in to wondering about wisdom teeth extractions.
