Your Kids Deserve the Specialty Care of a Pediatric Dentist
Being the premier pediatric dentist offices in the San Diego area requires years of specialty pediatric dentistry training. Our Super Dentists also have a nurturing temperament to work with kids including those with special needs. Being the best kids’ dentist in San Diego takes years of education, skill as a children’s dentist and the desire to deliver unparalleled pediatric dental care.
A children dentist has a keen knowledge of how teeth develop from the earliest stages of life and an understanding of how the mouth and jaw grow. While general dentist can treat children, The Super Dentists are experts. Our super pediatric dentists use state-of-the-art equipment, as well as proven relaxation techniques to keep kids comfortable during dental exams and procedures. The Super Dentists cater to the unique needs of children, to maintain your kids’ oral health and beautiful smiles.
Every six months, the American Dental Association recommends that everyone with teeth should have a comprehensive dental examination. This is especially important for children who have soft baby teeth that can decay quickly. In some cases, your super dentist will recommend more frequent visits depending on your child’s needs
Teeth cleaning is a routine part of a dental checkup, but you may not realize how important regular teeth cleaning can be for your overall health. Medical studies have shown that good oral hygiene not only helps prevent tooth loss, but can prevent heart disease, dementia and issues of diabetes, as well.
Fluoride is one of the best treatments for preventing tooth decay. For children, starting when primary teeth erupt and until age 16, fluoride helps strengthen primary and permanent teeth. During this development stage, fluoride use is the most important; however, adults benefit from fluoride as well.
When a tooth is fractured or damaged due to decay or trauma, dental fillings can replace and restore the tooth’s structure. No one wants to hear that they have a cavity; however, cavity filling is a routine procedure that can fix the tooth. The Super Dentists gives you the option of white resin composite or amalgam fillings.
If a cavity is not caught early, the decay can destroy so much of the tooth that there is not enough left to support a filling. This can also be the case with a broken tooth or with a root canal. A dental crown keeps the tooth and root intact and reduces the risk of pain and infection.
Can a trip to the dentist be a relaxing experience? The Super Dentists say, “Yes!” Whatever dental treatments your children need, The Super Dentists will help them sit back, relax and have a positive experience at the dentist. As pediatric dental specialists, The Super Dentists have an array of sedation dentistry methods that are safe and effective for kids.
The Super Dentists want your children to have healthy, beautiful teeth that will last them a lifetime. Sometimes, it is necessary to pull a tooth that cannot be repaired, or to protect the other teeth. Called a tooth extraction or tooth removal, this procedure is recommended if a tooth is damaged or decayed, a baby tooth is in the way of a permanent tooth causing space issues, a wisdom tooth is impacted or to make room for orthodontic work if there is crowding.
Brushing and Flossing
Good oral hygiene habits should begin around age three. This includes learning proper brushing and flossing techniques. In order to help kids learn how to brush and floss, The Super Dentists have created an informative instructional video. Teaching kids to brush and floss teeth correctly, and encouraging them to practice good dental care every day will help their teeth and gums stay healthy.
You want your children to be happy with their smiles, so they will freely show them to the world. Sometimes children can be self-conscious when teeth are discolored, worn, uneven, cracked or have unsightly gaps. White fillings, tooth bonding, gingival recontouring and frenectomies are types of cosmetic dentistry that can bring out a confident smile.
When a deep cavity in a baby tooth reaches the nerve (pulp), your pediatric dentist may recommend a pulpotomy. A pulpotomy removes part of the tooth’s pulp to prevent or treat the formation of an abscess.
If your child has a chipped or cracked tooth, mismatched tooth sizes, unsightly spaces between teeth or discolored or faded teeth, you can enhance your child’s smile with tooth bonding.
The Super Dentists take every precautionary measure to ensure your child is receiving top-notch dental care in the safest and cleanest environment. We maintain a positive safety culture and follow the most advanced guidelines for instrument sterilization in dentistry as well as infection control in the dental practice. The Super Dentists strictly follow sterilization and disinfection of dental instrument guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Dental Association.
Dental sealants are safe, thin plastic coatings placed on the tops and sides of your child’s teeth. Sealants are made of the same type of materials that are used for white fillings.
