Children’s Dentistry

myhealth general

It is common for a child’s first tooth to erupt at around 6 months old, while this is very early for a professional cleaning it is still important to clean them at home. Although the first set of teeth to erupt are baby teeth and will be replaced with adult teeth, bad oral hygiene habits that form while taking care of baby teeth can transition to adult teeth. Because children are just learning how to take care of their teeth, they don’t normally clean them properly so it is more common for decay and cavities to occur. 

Children’s dentistry is different from regular dentistry because each baby tooth has a completely different tooth structure and anatomy than an adult, permanent tooth. This means that baby teeth need different and specialized treatment. At Almaden Smiles in San Jose, California, we specialize in children’s dentistry. We offer several services to help your child maintain a healthy smile that will lead them to healthy permanent teeth. Some of these services include:

  • Children’s dental emergencies 
  • Children’s teeth grinding
  • Helping prevent baby bottle tooth decay 
  • Children’s dental sealants 
  • Early orthodontic treatment
