Pediatric Dentistry Oxnard, CA

Quality dental care is an important part of your child’s overall health. It is essential to make sure your child develops good oral hygiene habits early in life and continues them into adulthood. See Me Smile Dental of Oxnard is happy to help you and your child with all your dental needs to keep their smile beautiful and strong.

What Is a Pediatric Dentist?

A pediatric dentist specializes in working with children. They have undergone special training in the development of children’s teeth and how to care for them. Pediatric dentists have spent extra time learning how to best make children feel comfortable and safe when visiting the dental office. Our goal is to provide your child with the dental care they need, guidance for creating good oral health habits, and to create a positive experience where they look forward to visiting the dentist.

Why Should My Child See a Pediatric Dentist?

Because pediatric dentists are specially trained to work with children, they can offer your child a unique and positive experience in the dental office. Pediatric dentists work with your child to make visiting the dentist office fun and full of learning. By taking your child to a pediatric dentist, you are helping them create a healthy start to their oral health care and reducing the risk of expensive and painful problems arising later.

When Should My Child First See a Pediatric Dentist?

The American Dental Association (ADA) suggests that children visit the dentist as soon as their first tooth emerges. We welcome you and your child to visit us then so we can evaluate the development of your child’s gums, jaw and teeth. Usually, a child’s first visit is a gentle introduction to the dental office and caring for their teeth.

Our friendly dental team will provide you and your child with the advice and tools you need to begin proper dental care routines at home. Beginning your child’s routine dental appointments early allows us to identify any issues as early as possible and provide the best treatment for your child before problems become painful and costly.

How Often Should My Child See a Pediatric Dentist?

After your child’s first dental appointment we recommend regular dental checkups twice a year, typically every 6 months. Regular dental checkups include teeth cleanings, dental exams, and advice from your dental team.

Are Routine Dental Check Ups Really Necessary?

Yes! Dental checkups are an essential tool in keeping your child’s mouth healthy.

Dental Exam

During a routine checkup your pediatric dentist will perform an examination of your child’s teeth, gums, jaw, and soft tissues. This exam is an important tool in diagnosing dental issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and more serious conditions. Identifying problems early can save time, pain, and costs down the road.

Dental Cleaning

Routine teeth cleanings help prevent tooth decay and cavities and improve your child’s smile. Teeth cleanings are painless and simple. Your child’s teeth will be cleaned of plaque and tartar, both cavity causing agents, and polished to a shiny smooth surface. Your child may also be given a fluoride treatment to help keep the outside layer of tooth enamel strong and defend against tooth decay.

At See Me Smile Dental of Oxnard we want to provide for all your family’s dental needs. We welcome you to bring your child in to meet our pediatric dentist and see for yourself how we can make a difference in your child’s smile.
