Have you noticed a difference in todays children's dentists? A lot of things have changed since you were a kid. Today's children's dental offices are more kid friendly and spend considerable effort to avoid traumatizing kids. You are encouraged to bring your child for their first appointment by their first birthday.

Just like well-child visits with your pediatrician, early dental appointment are educational to prevent cavities and other problems later on. A trusting relationship between your child and their dentist can be created this way and will go a long way if your child requires treatment later on by reducing anxiety and fear. 

A cheerful environment is very helpful in putting your child at ease; TVs mounted to the walls and ceilings playing popular children's movie can be enjoyed while in the dental chair. Toys and a playhouse are icing on the cake!

There have also been changes in the actual practice of children's dentistry. You probably never got dental sealants as a child, or had topical fluoride treatments. If you had a cavity in a primary tooth and had it extracted, you may not have had a space maintainer placed. Without a space maintainer teeth crowd out the secondary teeth. There have also been advances in fillings and crowns; new materials are available which look natural and blend in for a beautiful smile.

Here's a sampling of what's new in pediatric dentistry:

Dental Sealants
Many teeth have rough surfaces that are hard to clean. When applied to these surfaces, a dental sealant makes the pitted and grooved area of a tooth smooth and easy to clean.

Back teeth have a biting surface and crevices that are hard to clean, and depending on the depth of the crevice, bacteria and food can get lodged in the tooth and cause cavities. If your child's teeth has shallow crevices, sealants probably aren't indicated, but if you've ever given your child a pretzel and later saw that the food was still stuck on the teeth, your child could benefit from sealants.

Sealants are easy to apply. They are brushed onto the teeth, and the sealant bonds with the tooth's enamel, according to the American Dental Association (ADA). Sometimes a curing light is used to help the sealants dry faster.

Fluoride Treatments
Ingested fluoride works on teeth that haven't yet come into the mouth, those that haven't erupted yet, but it has no effect on the teeth already in the mouth. A fluoride treatment using a gel or varnish incorporates the fluoride into the surface outer layer of the tooth. It has to be repeated because it gets worn off.

Fluoride is applied using a cotton swab or brush, or it's placed in a tray that the child bites down on and then holds in the mouth for several minutes. Once a fluoride treatment is done, there should be no eating or drinking for 30 minutes to allow the fluoride to soak into the teeth, according to the ADA.

We want to be your favorite superstar! We have taken care of many kids whose parents were apprehensive. Some of our patients can't even sit still for a haircut, yet with a gentle touch we are able to examine the child without trauma, sedation or holding the kid down. Parents are frequently amazed by this and the kids ask when they can come back. That's hard to believe but I'm not making it up! Of course sometimes patients require sedation or even general anesthesia which we offer if necessary.

“Bike accident turned peaceful” I loved when we walked in, the receptionist stood and cheerfully greeted us. I knew right then we came to the right place. The waiting room was inviting and clean. My son was very difficult since he had a bike fall and was sore and had stitches. The last thing he wanted to do was open up but the team and dentist were so great and managed to get an exam and x ray done. I will be back for our routine work for sure!

I came to Dr Brown after feeling extremely uncomfortable with a filling procedure at another office. Dr Brown and her staff were very warm and welcoming and made my 5 year old comfortable from the beginning. I decided to let Dr Brown do my sons fillings. He was so comfortable the whole time. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you!
-Kari Camp

Check out our video and keep those teeth clean so at your checkup you can join our CAVITY FREE CLUB! #childrensdentist   #ranchocucamonga   #pediatricdentist   www.sweettoothchildrensdentistry.com

The video below shows parents and their children how to properly care for their teeth. We do this toothbrushing routine every night before bedtime. After your child's teeth are clean they should not have any food or sugary drinks (including milk) before bed. Once your child had teeth they shouldn't sleep with a bottle of milk or juice. Water and breast milk are ok for nighttime. The idea here is to not coat the teeth with sugar which feeds bacteria which form cavities. New recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists state that your child should have a tiny amount of toothpaste equal to the size of a grain of rice on the toothbrush. Since kids usually swallow toothpaste, larger doses of fluoride containing toothpaste cause tooth discoloration on permanent teeth which are still forming. Many times, kids in the 2 year old range will say "no" to everything you want to do and will decline your request to brush their teeth. The video created by Sweet Tooth Children's Dentistry shows you can position your child and safely and effectively brush your child's teeth, even if they don't want you to. #dentist   #toothbrush   #sweettooth
