Pediatric Dentistry in Union City, CA
We specialize in providing dental treatment for children and young adolescents by providing a gentle and comfortable atmosphere for them. Our love for children has prompted us to make their visit to the dentist as comfortable as possible, and our ultimate goal is to establish and maintain a life-long relationship with these young patients.
We provide examinations and teeth cleaning for infants and will monitor their dentistry needs as they grow and change. We will provide information to the adult as to how to properly care for their children's teeth and will make formal recommendations as to how to achieve overall dental well being.
American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, all recommend that your child visits a dentist by age one or 6 months from the first tooth eruption.
Why are baby teeth important ?
Although tooth decay has declined among young children as a group, it can still be a problem for individual children, and even teens and adults. That's because plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, constantly forms on your teeth. When you eat or drink foods containing sugars or starches, the bacteria in plaque produce acids that attack tooth enamel. The stickiness of the plaque keeps these acids in contact with your teeth and after many such attacks, the enamel can break down and a cavity forms.
