Sacramento dentist enjoys treating pediatric patients
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports tooth decay is the most common chronic condition among children, affecting more kids than asthma, hay fever, diabetes and obesity. Problems with your child’s teeth and gums can be prevented and damage can even be reversed in the earliest stages of periodontal disease.
Sacramento Natural Dentistry has invested in techniques and technologies specifically geared toward pediatric patients. An injection technique eliminates a significant source of dental fear: needles. Many young patients don’t even realize they got a shot!
It is never too early to develop healthy habits.
Early visits are as much about the parent as the child
During the first appointment, we get to know your child, so she or he is comfortable with the dentist and team. This initial visit is an opportunity for parents to learn preventative brushing and flossing techniques
Sacramento Natural Dentistry is well-equipped to recommend nutritional and lifestyle modifications that will set your child up for a lifetime of robust health. For instance, babies should never be put to bed with sugary drinks. Your son or daughter should only sip on water for prolonged periods of time. Any time a child or parent sips on a sugary drink, the sugars mix with mouth bacteria to produce an acidic bath that eats away at your teeth.
Call (916) 823-8585 to schedule an appointment with a Pediatric Dentist in Sacramento that understands your child’s unique needs and the importance of early dental visits for lifelong health.
