Pediatric Dentist Diamond BarIt is essential that your children make the transition into being diligent about their oral hygiene at a young age. These childhood habits and hygiene practices can build the foundation for lifelong health. Therefore, it is crucial you find the right pediatric dentist to care for your child’s oral health. Our expert pediatric dentist Dr. Haejin Kang specializes in dentistry for children, using her comfortable personality and professional skill to create an environment that helps your child want to go to the dentist rather than be afraid of going.
Children DentistWhile many dentists may provide care for your children, only a pediatric dentist will truly have the right training. Caring for a child’s dental health involves a different attitude and approach than general dentistry for adults. At Diamond Bar Dental Studio, our pediatric dentist focuses entirely on your child’s dental care and oral health. Their goal is to look after your child’s oral health needs from infancy to adolescence, all the while helping them build lifelong hygiene practices.
What Makes Pediatric Dentistry Different?
It takes a skilled dentist to work with children and their teeth. It is vastly different than an adult going in for regular cleaning. Why is this the case? Well, your child’s teeth are significantly different from those of an adult.
Also, a child is more likely to have anxiety and stress about a dentist appointment than an adult. Often, going in for a routine cleaning can create a feeling of severe anxiety for a child. This occurs because kids really don’t understand what dental care and why it is essential. But a trained pediatric dentist will be able to create a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for your child.
Kids love us. Parents trust us.
Diamond Bar Dental Studio recommends that your child receive their first dental check-up at the age of two (2). This might seem a bit early for some parents, but early detection of any issues with baby teeth is vital to stopping problems down the road. For example, some dental problems like malformation and tooth decay need to be diagnosed and taken care of immediately before the problem worsens. It is also the ideal age for your child to learn to brush their teeth properly.
When you visit a family dentist, you are taking a key step to keeping your child healthy. After all, oral and dental health often have effects on the whole body. So, working with Dr. Kang is a way to keep your child healthy throughout their life.
Parents and Dentists Together: It’s a Team Effort.
Dr. Kang will do everything she can to educate you and your child on the best practices of dental care. But it is ultimately up to you as the parent to ensure that your child is brushing their teeth after every meal. Also, they must floss regularly and, most importantly, eat the right kinds of food. Proper nutrition is essential to preventing dental issues in children both now and as they grow. You want to make sure your child eats an adequate amount of fruit and vegetables and avoids junk food. This establishes excellent habits at an early age that will last for a lifetime of happy smiles.
