When you visit the dentist with your child, you should feel confident that they will receive gentle, quality care in a comfortable environment. That is what we are committed to at San Ramon Valley Dental. We enjoy treating our young patients and helping them build a foundation for a lifetime of great oral health.
At San Ramon Valley Dental, we recommend that children see the dentist by their first birthday. This allows us to check for any issues and helps them feel comfortable in the dental office as they grow older.
Our Pediatric Dental Services
Sealants: This painless treatment will seal and protect your child’s back teeth from cavities and make them easier to clean.
Fluoride Applications: Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral. Using concentrated amounts of fluoride will strengthen teeth and can reverse the early effects of decay.
Fillings: When a cavity occurs, al filling is an effective method for repairing the damage.
Crowns: When damage is too great to be treated with a filling, a crown can often save and protect the tooth.
Emergency Dentistry: When a sudden dental issue occurs, we will see your child as quickly as possible and provide quality, gentle care.
Phase 1 Ortho: Phase 1 Orthodontics can begin before all of the baby teeth are lost. Ask us if it can help your child.
Why is Pediatric Dentistry Important?
Pediatric dentistry is important because it can help to prevent dental diseases throughout your child’s life. Plaque, gum disease and cavities can occur in children. These can lead to major oral health issues, which is why it is important to start preventing these issues when your child is young. Pediatric dentistry can help us keep your child’s mouth and primary teeth healthy and free of decay so that permanent teeth have a healthy place to move into.
Is Pediatric Dentistry Expensive?
The cost of pediatric dentistry can vary greatly depending on each child’s unique needs. We accept most dental insurance programs in our area. If you do not have insurance, ask about our financing options.
