Children’s Dentistry in Corona with Eastvale Dental
At Eastvale Dental and Orthodontics
, our priority is providing children with the treatments they need to keep their smile healthy well into adulthood. From preventive sealants to comprehensive orthodontics, our Corona family dentist Dr. Lan Dinh and his associate Dr. Viet Dinh offer the services your child needs in the comfortable environment they deserve.
The Importance of Children’s Dentistry
The health of your smile during adulthood is significantly influenced by the condition of your smile during early childhood and the teen years. From a preventive perspective, many of the day-to-day hygiene habits practiced during adulthood originate when a child is first learning how to brush and floss their teeth. Often, patients with poor hygiene during these early dental transitions experience similarly poor health during adulthood and struggle to maintain a healthy smile and comprehensive dental function.
Similarly, a number of issues can arise from missing out on important childhood dental care. For example, phase one and phase two orthodontics are designed to reinforce healthy bite and bone development, preventing serious over- and underbites as well as lowering the risk of bruxism, TMJ dysfunction, and even sleep apnea.
Regular dental visits during childhood allow our Corona family dentists to monitor your child’s smile as they first develop primary teeth and transition into an adult dentition. With the use of modern dental technology, Drs. Dinh are able to identify potential problems and create long-term treatment solutions to prevent these issues from compromising patients’ oral health in the future.
Creating a Dental Home for your Child
We believe that creating lasting oral health starts with providing an environment where all children can feel comfortable. Rather than rushing right into care, Dr. Viet and Dr. Lan prioritize going at your child’s pace of comfort. To help children get used to regular dental visits, your child’s first appointments are often lap-to-lap visual examinations. Recommended when your child develops their first tooth or before their first birthday, these visits provide the opportunity for parents to learn about best at-home hygiene and diet practices.
As your child develops and begins to lose their primary teeth, our dentists begin to prioritize patient education. Our goals are to provide your child with the care they need to develop healthy adult smiles and the skills to maintain healthy smiles at home.
With sealants and fluoride rinses, we can prevent cavities from developing and damaging young dentitions. During these biannual visits, our hygienists also teach good brushing and flossing techniques to ensure children become familiar with the right hygiene techniques early on. We also continue to evaluate changes in your child’s developing dentition and may recommend extended treatment plans like orthodontics and wisdom teeth extraction to ensure your child has the right care to ensure future dental wellness.
