Yes, we do! At Los Gatos Family Dentistry, we are committed to meeting the needs of adults and children so that your entire family can come to just one office. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that all children have their first dental visit by age one or when the first baby tooth appears.
Baby or primary teeth will come out eventually on their own, but until they do, they play a crucial role in your child’s dental development. Not only do primary teeth help your child learn how to chew and speak, but they also act as placeholders for permanent teeth. When the baby tooth comes out, the permanent tooth will have space to erupt correctly and in proper alignment.
Preserving the health of baby teeth is essential, and we offer Los Gatos dental exams and teeth cleanings to prevent cavities that threaten a baby tooth. As your child grows, we provide age-appropriate care that includes fluoride and dental sealants, and we also offer tooth fillings if they get a cavity.
Dr. Phan and her team will answer all your questions about your child’s oral health care and provide guidance for concerns like thumb-sucking, pacifier use, and bottle feeding.
If you have an older child or it’s time to schedule your toddler’s first dental visit, please call Los Gatos Family Dentistry to get started.
