While your child may be initially fearful of visiting a dentist, we endeavor to turn the dental visit into a positive experience that can even make for a fun time. Our dentists have a relaxed and amiable attitude that helps to put kids at ease, and we always talk encouragingly as we take your child through a dental treatment that will be made as comfortable as possible. Through our gentle approach and any preliminary steps you take at home, we will make every visit as anxiety-free as possible for you and your child.
Your child’s healthy dental habits start the moment he or she gets teeth. As a parent, it is your job to help your child establish these healthy habits, and at Laser Dental Bakersfield, our team are here to help make your job easier. Working together as a team, we will help enhance your child’s oral health to help them have healthy adult teeth.
As your child’s dentist, we will provide quality preventative and restorative dental care for your child to help keep your child’s oral health in optimal condition.
A Comfortable Dental Home
It is important for your child to feel safe and comfortable with his or her dentist. Our dentists are gentle, comforting, and understanding of all children. We know how nerve-wracking it can be to sit in the big dental chair and let someone look in your mouth. Our dentists and hygienists have proven techniques that help children relax and allow us to perform dental checkups and procedures. We can help even the most nervous child overcome his or her dental fear and allow us to perform the necessary dental procedures.
How Often Your Child Should See The Dentist
It may seem young, but your child should see us within six months of getting his or her first tooth or his or her first birthday, whichever comes first.
After your child’s first appointment, coming back every six months for a checkup and cleaning will help keep your child’s oral health in good condition. As your child grows and changes, we will keep a close eye on his or her oral health. Jawbones change, facial structures change, teeth shift, and needs arise. With regular checkups, we can work with you as a team to figure out the best way to help your child’s permanent teeth be as strong and healthy as possible.
Dental Services For Children
We offer the highest quality dental services for children beyond the standard dental exam and cleaning. Our services include dental sealants, cavity restoration, and tooth extraction. We work with you every step of the way, letting you know of any problems we see with your child’s oral health early. This way, we can come up with a plan together to ensure the best outcome.
We can also serve as your dental home for dental emergencies. Kids fall and have accidents all of the time. Knowing that you have somewhere to go rather than frantically searching for an available dentist can give you the peace of mind you need during a stressful time.
We help kids with knocked out teeth, broken teeth, root fractures, and toothaches. Our staff will work quickly and efficiently to help keep the situation under control. We understand the fear and concern that can result from a serious accident that puts your child’s oral health at risk. Trust that we have your child’s best interests in mind and will use our expertise to get his or her mouth back in good working order quickly.
