Newport Beach Dentistry for Kids

Start Your Child in the Right Direction with Newport Beach Dental

Your child’s lifelong relationship with dental care can be largely shaped by the first few visits when they are small. At Newport Beach Dental, we want to make sure your child doesn’t shy away from visits to the dentist! Dr. Alder and his entire team have plenty of experience with children and continue to make it their goal to make a child’s visit a positive experience. We endeavor to get your child started off on the right foot when it comes to his or her oral care. So with each appointment, we find ways to encourage brushing and flossing at home in the proper way and we do so by creating fun games out of these important habits. Since we know moms are busy, we’ve made scheduling appointments easy as well. Call us at (949) 642-2300 to request an appointment .

A Great Experience for My Little Man

“As a child I was terrified of the dentist. So you can imagine that as I grew up my appointments were few and far between. Mostly when it was too late and I already had a problem. This is not what I wanted for my child. So when we were new to the area a few years ago and I was pregnant, I looked for a Newport Beach kids dentist that we could all go to. And I found a great practice with Newport Beach Dental. Dr. Alder is so good with Luke and the hygienist even makes him giggle. Its a relief to know that my son is going to grow up with a solid foundation in taking care of his teeth.”

Technology has come a long way since you were a child. Filling cavities is a far more comfortable experience than what you may have experienced as a kid and with composite fillings the bonding materials are healthier and much less noticeable than the metal fillings of yesteryear. At Newport Beach Dental, we select our hygienists with your child’s comfort in mind. Since these are the professionals trusted to perform gentle dental cleaning, we only accept the best and most qualified. Not only do we take excellent care of your child’s mouth, with each visit we make it a priority to make oral health education fun. Oral care begins with your child’s first tooth. So if you are looking for great kids dental services in Newport Beach , come visit us today.

Sealant’s Can Help Your Child Avoid Cavities

The last thing you want for your child is for them to go through having a cavity filled. Fortunately, there is a new option in this area of kids dentistry that can help to safeguard your child’s teeth. Sealants are primarily recommended for molars where kids are more prone to cavity development. Teeth sealants are basically a thin layer of synthetic material that Dr. Alder can bond to your child’s teeth which then protect against cavities by closing the pits and grooves that would usually trap food particles and promote decay. Of course, sealants do not replace daily brushing and flossing, but when cared for they can significantly reduce the risk of tooth decay saving you a great deal in future restoration costs.

Your Newport Beach Kids Dentist Has a Tip or Two on Kids’ Oral Health

Nothing beats regular visits to the dentist in Newport Beach when it comes to maintaining your child’s oral health. However, what you do at home is extremely important. Good habits should begin as soon as your child is old enough to hold a toothbrush. Bad habits are hard to break so we want to make sure they start off with good ones! Brushing should take approximately seven seconds per tooth, so set a stopwatch and make it fun. As toothpaste should never be swallowed, when presented the right way, kids will love the daily opportunity to “spit.” And of course we all know from our moms that sugar causes cavities but what you may not know is that the foods your children eat are as important as the ones they should avoid. Crunchy fruits and vegetables can act as brushing agents all by themselves, additionally, nutrients like calcium, phosphorous and Vitamin D are essential for proper tooth development and can actually help teeth regenerate dentin even after cavities form.
