Our pediatric dentist will evaluate your child's teeth and provide a program of home care, including diet counseling, brushing and flossing instructions, and fluoride recommendations. These directions will allow you to assist your child in acquiring healthy habits.
Professional dental cleanings and examinations help to prevent such problems as gum disease, cavities and infection in adults and children because they can help identify such problems during their early stages of development. Wilshire Dental Care can also provide a deep cleaning, including scaling, root planing, polishing and recommendations for further preventative or restorative care. With preventive dentistry, children can acquire and maintain a healthy smile. The benefits of oral health mean that kids will chew their food more easily and absorb more nutrients from what they eat. They will learn to speak more clearly and quickly. And since disease in the mouth can cause other health risks, they experience better overall health with an attractive appearance, thus creating a greater level of confidence. Most of all preventive dentistry will mean less extensive and expensive treatments in the future.
