On his or her first visit to our kids dentist in Van Nuys
, there is time for orientation and getting acquainted. The more familiar your child is with our office, the equipment we use, and everyone here, the more comfortable she or he is going to be. A full examination will be conducted by our kids dentist in Van Nuys, which includes a physical checkup of the teeth, gums, and jaws, and the taking of x-rays. If any cavities have formed, it is crucial to have them treated before they are able to grow large enough to increase the risk for toothaches, infections, and early loss of primary (baby) teeth. When that happens, the other teeth may shift, and block the room for permanent (adult) teeth to grow in on their normal schedule. A teeth cleaning is also part of the session. It has two huge benefits. First is the removal of tartar buildup. Dental plaque that still remains after brushing and flossing hardens. It is not possible to effectively eliminate it at home, and since both plaque and tartar are the reasons behind cavities and gum disease, the regular removal of both cannot be overemphasized. The second plus is that any signs of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, are reversed with a teeth cleaning at our office. You can also depend on essential guidance on subjects ranging from how to deal with teething and finger/thumb sucking, proper nutrition, and the role that fluoride plays in cavity prevention.
