At Encino Family Dental, we strive to be more than just a dental clinic. We are a family practice that is committed to giving your children the highest quality of dental care in an environment they can feel comfortable in. When you’re here, you’re family. Our Pediatric dentist can handle kids of all ages.
Comforting Children Dental Care
Our children’s dentist understands that the dentist’s office can be scary for many kids; that’s why we go above and beyond to promote a comfortable atmosphere. You can always count on smiles from our dental staff. It’s our job to make sure that when your child leaves, they are smiling too, with a happy and healthy set of teeth.
Our Pediatric Dentist Services
At Encino Family Dental, we believe in providing comprehensive preventative and restorative dental care. During your child’s check-up, we will go over every aspect of their oral health to tailor a dental treatment that works best.
Our services include:
General Education on Oral Hygiene
We make sure your child leaves our office with a comprehensive understanding of the importance of daily brushing and flossing, along with a proper, nutritious diet. We want your child’s teeth to stay healthy in-between visits.
From instruction on proper brushing techniques to cultivating an appropriate flossing schedule, we go over it all with your child. Don’t forget to ask for a new toothbrush if the one you have at home is getting old!
Regular Check-Ups and Teeth Cleanings
It’s essential for your children to regularly visit the dentist’s office for teeth cleanings and check-up on their oral health. Dr. Yassa always strives to make each child feel welcome, so they can think of check-ups as something to look forward to.
We want your child to come to see Pediatric dentist visits as a habit to get into, one that will hopefully follow them into adulthood, not something that should be avoided. We can help accomplish this by ensuring your child’s experience at the Pediatric dentist is a pleasant and enriching one.
Sometimes baby teeth don’t fall out as they should. For this, or any other reason a tooth extraction may be necessary, we can help. Getting your teeth pulled may seem like a terrifying prospect when you’re a child, but we know how to perform the treatment as free of pain as possible.
When the time comes for your child to have their wisdom teeth removed, you can count on us.
A root canal is a procedure to save a tooth from infection that involves treating infected pulp at a tooth’s center. If your child has not looked after their tooth’s hygiene, this may be a possibility. Like extractions, these can be a scary prospect for your child. We make sure to keep them aware of what they can expect from the process while maintaining pain minimum.
Cavity Treatment and Fillings
Cavities occur as a result of certain foods, such as those rich in sugar, wearing down your teeth, causing small holes that can make a tooth sensitive. We aim to give your child the tools and habits to help prevent the development of cavities, but they may need to be dealt with more directly on occasion. Our filling process is light on discomfort and helps your child smile without issue once again.
Invisalign Clear Braces
Eventually, your child will need braces, and when that day comes, we will be there to help them through the process. This is an essential step in your child’s development, as it ensures their teeth grow in properly and do not wind up crooked.
If your child is nervous about having braces put in, consider an Invisalign treatment! Invisalign is a clear, retainer-like insert that goes over your child’s teeth. This can be a great way to ensure your child’s teeth do not grow in crooked while allowing for a relatively inconspicuous treatment.
