Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty devoted exclusively to children. Our goal at Valley Dental Center is a healthy child who will enter adulthood free of dental disease (as well as dental fears), with good oral health habits that last a lifetime. By the age of three, your child should have been checked by the dentist.
Did you know that children’s baby teeth are at as much risk as adults? As baby teeth develop, they form the place for the adult teeth to grow. If these immature teeth are allowed to decay, it can lead to serious problems later on in life; or if there is not enough room in you child’s mouth, their teeth may grow in crooked or be overly crowded. Good oral care can protect your child from costly dental procedures later in life.
Valley Dental Center provides full preventive care for children of all ages. We also provide fluoride treatments and sealants to help preserve your child’s beautiful smile. Dental sealants are a plastic coating applied to the teeth to prevent cavities from forming in the grooves of the teeth. It covers the surface of the teeth used for grinding food. Once applied, it is a long lasting defense against many dental problems. The procedure is painless, and your child will be done in no time!
