Is your family searching for a San Diego pediatric dentist? Torrey Hills Dental is a family practice setting that provides general services for everyone, including children as young as 5 years of age. There’s no need to see a separate pediatric dentist; everyone is welcome here!
Our general practitioners take a preventative care approach to treating children. By equipping your child with a positive experience, early intervention treatments, and prevention strategies, they have a better chance of enjoying healthy teeth for life.
Your child’s first visit with a dentist should be one that’s comfortable and friendly. We want them to associate oral health with something fun, rather than intimidating. That’s why early exams and six-month checkups are so essential.
Pediatric Dental Treatments Available
Some of the most common children’s services that we provide include:
Exams and Cleanings — Your child’s six-month checkups allow us to screen for issues while they’re as small as possible. During their cleaning, we’ll also teach them age-appropriate ways to care for their teeth and gums.
Dental Sealants — Applying a protective sealant on the chewing surfaces of molars (back teeth) can significantly reduce your child’s risk of developing tooth decay in those areas.
Fluoride Treatment — Applying fluoride after your child’s cleaning helps remineralize weak enamel, combat tooth decay, and reduce sensitivity.
Orthodontic Evaluations — The growth of your child’s jaws and tooth eruption patterns affect everything from speech and self-esteem to their TMJ and breathing. Orthodontic experts recommend an assessment by age 7.
Restorative/Therapeutic Dentistry — Depending on your child’s comfort level, necessary fillings or other treatments can be completed without additional referrals.
