Our West Hollywood dentist will also take the time to talk to your child during each dental visit and explain about the procedure that is going to be done and its purpose. Your child will soon learn that there is nothing to fear and that dental visits are not to be dreaded.
It is reassuring to know that our West Hollywood pediatric dentist is experienced in all aspects of dental care for kids and can ensure their dental health through adulthood.
West Hollywood Pediatric Dentist
If braces need to be a part of your child's dental care, our pediatric dentist in West Hollywood will take the necessary time to explain to your child why braces are going to be worn. Proper instruction will be given regarding the care of teeth when braces are on, which is a little different from normal care. Your child will also come into the office periodically so that the condition of teeth and gums can be evaluated and adjustments can be made to the braces, when necessary. If your child is experiencing any discomfort from his or her braces, the appropriate adjustments will be made to fit the braces more adequately to the teeth and eliminate any irritation. It may take one to three years for proper alignment to be attained, but it will be well worth the time when straight, strong teeth will be the outcome.
Sugary treats can create cavities, and our West Hollywood pediatric dentist is prepared to remove any tooth decay and effectively fill any cavities that your child may have. And any dental emergencies that may occur due to a sports-related injury will also be quickly and competently handled.
Our pediatric dentist in West Hollywood has approaches that can make your kids comfortable at the office and ready to receive treatments without causing any fear in them.
