Santa Clarita Pediatric Dentistry

Caring for Your Child’s Dental Health

Pure Dentistry Children & Adults provides quality dental care for patients of all ages, including pediatric dentistry in Santa Clarita. We recommend that infants be seen in our office after six months of age and at least by the first birthday. At this stage, the primary teeth are beginning to emerge and the dentist can spot problems before they grow into major issues.

Contact us today to learn more about our pediatric dental services in Santa Clarita.

Prevention for Infants & Small Children

There are some common conditions in infants and young children that may create dental problems later on. For example, thumb sucking may result in malformed teeth and bite problems. Baby bottle tooth decay can be caused by sugary liquids combining with saliva which wears down baby’s teeth. This can affect the primary teeth and interfere with the healthy formation of permanent teeth.

We help your child maintain healthy teeth with:

  • Regular Exams – Routine dental exams and cleanings keep your child’s teeth healthy and allow us to address any problems early.
  • Education About Hygiene – Babies’ gums and teeth should be gently cleaned with special infant toothbrushes and water. After the age of 2, a fluoride toothpaste in a pea-sized amount and a soft-bristled toothbrush should be used to brush the teeth.
  • Fluoride – Fluoride is present in most public drinking water to prevent tooth decay. If your water does not have fluoride or has an unacceptable level, the dentist can prescribe fluoride supplements.
  • Sealants – Sealants are applied over the ridges and chewing edges of the teeth to protect the teeth from food and plaque.
  • Mouth Guards – Injuries to the mouth during sports can often be prevented with mouth guards. These appliances fit around the teeth and mold to the child’s teeth.

During your child’s visit, we will examine the teeth and gums, advise you of any problems that may be developing, and educate parents and children about the importance of home care. Our goal is to help children form healthy habits for life.

Dental Emergencies & Injuries

If your child has a fractured or knocked out tooth, contact our Santa Clarita pediatric dentists today. We provide emergency dental services that can quickly address these problems and more.

Santa Clarita Community Dental Resources

At Pure Dentistry Children & Adults, we understand the unique needs of families in Santa Clarita. Our community is served by several local government entities and resources that support dental health and overall well-being. The City of Santa Clarita, for instance, offers various health programs and services through the Recreation, Community Services, and Open Space Department. Additionally, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health provides valuable information and resources on maintaining good dental hygiene.

One common concern among Santa Clarita parents is ensuring their children have access to fluoride, which is crucial for preventing tooth decay. While most public drinking water in our area contains fluoride, some households may rely on well water or bottled water, which might not have adequate fluoride levels. If this is the case for your family, our dentists can prescribe fluoride supplements to ensure your child's teeth remain strong and healthy.

Another local issue is the prevalence of sports-related dental injuries among children. With numerous parks and recreational facilities like the Central Park and the Santa Clarita Sports Complex, kids are actively participating in sports. We recommend using custom-fitted mouth guards to protect your child's teeth during these activities. Our team can create personalized mouth guards that offer superior protection compared to over-the-counter options.

Commonly Asked Questions

At What Age Should My Child First Visit a Pediatric Dentist in Santa Clarita?

It is recommended that infants have their first dental visit after six months of age and no later than their first birthday. This early examination allows our Santa Clarita pediatric dentists to detect any potential issues as primary teeth emerge, ensuring your child's dental health is monitored from the start.

What Should I Do If My Child has a Dental Emergency in Santa Clarita?

If your child experiences a dental emergency, such as a fractured or knocked-out tooth, it's important to contact our Santa Clarita pediatric dentists immediately. We offer emergency dental services that can address these urgent issues promptly to minimize discomfort and prevent further complications.

Why Is Fluoride Important for My Child's Dental Health?

Fluoride is essential for strengthening tooth enamel and preventing decay. Most public drinking water contains fluoride, but if your water supply lacks fluoride or has insufficient levels, our Santa Clarita pediatric dentists can prescribe fluoride supplements to help your child's teeth remain healthy.
