Pediatric Dentistry - El Segundo, CA
Healthy Smiles Start Even Before the First Tooth
Did you know that children are at risk of childhood cavities even before their first tooth emerges from the gums? Without proper gum care, bacteria can grow in your child’s mouth, putting their baby teeth at risk. While this may seem like a small concern since baby teeth are not permanent, cavities in your child’s teeth also set their future adult teeth up for failure if not treated.
Scheduled, routine dental cleanings help prevent these harmful bacteria from settling in your child’s mouth, effectively preventing cavities or worse, gum disease. Bringing your child to visit Dr. Hossein Javid by the time their first tooth emerges, or by their first birthday, can help you establish good oral health routines with your child for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Prevent, Diagnose and Treat Dental Concerns with Pediatric Services
Routine appointments are ideal for Dr. Javid to prevent, diagnose and treat any dental concerns before they turn into problems for your child. To help keep your child’s smile healthy, Dr. Javid offers the following pediatric services:
- Preventative Care
- Root Canals
- Wisdom Tooth Removal
During their appointments, we strive to keep your child as relaxed and comfortable as possible, but we understand that some children experience dental anxiety. To help, we offer sedation dentistry. This is safely administered by an experienced Board Certified Anesthesiologist.
