Our team takes extra steps to ensure that every patient feels comfortable in our office, because we want them to have a positive attitude about visiting the dentist’s office and put an end to dental anxiety before it can even start. As compassionate pediatric dentists, we always strive to help children and their parents identify ways in which they can make caring for their teeth fun and effective.

Why You Need a Pediatric Dentistry Specialist

Children have unique oral health and hygiene needs. At Adventure Dental and Orthodontics, we believe it’s important to teach children that the dentist’s office is not a place to be feared. Because general dentists usually don’t work on nearly as many child patients, they are not as well-equipped to handle their unique needs as a specialist. Our pediatric dentists work with children every day, including children with special needs, with focused, attentive care.

Adventure Dental and Orthodontics is proud to provide:
Your child’s oral hygiene is a large indicator of his/her overall health, and working with a trained pediatric dentist in Santa Clarita can make all the difference in your child’s smile. Whether it’s their first dental appointment or they’re experiencing a pressing issue with their teeth, we’re confident in our ability to find the appropriate treatment and solution for you.

What to Expect

Two of the best treatments we offer are prevention and education. We help parents learn how to care for their child’s mouth as early as when their first tooth erupts, which is the recommended time you should schedule his or her first dental appointment. At this very young age, your baby will sit on your lap during their first exam, and our pediatric dentist will check your child’s mouth and review how to care for the new teeth and learn techniques to stop any harmful habits, such as drinking a baby bottle in bed or thumb sucking.

Here are some of our pre-planning tips before you bring your child to the dentist:

  • Tell your child you’re going to visit a tooth doctor on the day of the appointment. Say the tooth doctor is called a dentist, and they will help check their teeth and teach them how to care for their teeth, and that there will be plenty of toys, books, and videos at the office.
  • Avoid using any words that will create anxiety for your child, like “hurt,” or names of dental tools, like “needle” or “drill.”
  • If your child has a special blanket or toy they rely on to calm their nerves, please bring it with you to the appointment. We can even “check” their favorite doll’s teeth, for fun!

What Happens During the Exam?

During your child’s dental exam, we will take any necessary X-rays, clean your child’s teeth, evaluate their teeth, gums, and bite, and assess their oral health, and make suggestions about nutrition. We can help teach parents and their children how they should be flossing once a day and brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and child-sized toothbrush. Our goal is to help your child achieve and maintain a healthy smile that will last a lifetime.
