At PhD Dental, we are pleased to welcome patients of all ages, and we especially enjoy treating children. We know that by starting early, we can make a real difference in kids’ dental health, and we value the trust you place in us to help them enjoy problem-free smiles.
We recommend bringing your child to see kids when they get their first baby teeth but no later than age one. You may not realize it, but baby teeth have a critical job to do because they hold a space for permanent teeth that will soon follow.
Why bring your child to the dentist?
When a baby tooth is lost too soon because of decay or infection, neighboring teeth start to drift into the open space. Now when the permanent tooth is ready to erupt, it has no place to go and can come in at odd angles. This leads to tooth misalignment that your child may need braces to correct.
If you’re worried about how your son or daughter will react, put your fears to rest. We assure you that, when it’s time for your little one’s first visit, our team will be here to support them in every way we can to ensure they have a positive experience.
Are you looking for a children’s dentist in LA, Inglewood, Lynwood, or Pico Rivera who can take care of your little one’s needs now and long into adulthood? Please call PhD Dental to arrange a visit to one of our dental offices to get started. We look forward to welcoming you and your child!
