Are you searching for a Santa Clarita pediatric dentist (pedodontist)? At Sierra Dental Practice, our extremely skilled dental providers offer everything from family to pediatric dentistry. Valencia families trust us for our honesty, integrity, and desire to put patients first, regardless of their age. Our family-friendly dental team makes it easy for you and your child to receive the best care close to home. 

Benefits of Pediatric Dentistry for Your Child

There are several significant benefits of bringing your child to a family or pediatric dentist from a young age. Such as:

  • Early visits help familiarize children with the dental environment, resulting in less anxiety in the future.
  • Routine monitoring of your child’s dental health and oral development allows our providers to treat issues earlier when they’re simpler to correct.
  • A chance to reverse or correct early stages of infections or growth abnormalities before more complex problems form.
  • Lower risk of dental emergencies and toothaches, thanks to access to routine preventative care.
  • Equipping your child with the resources necessary to keep their teeth healthier, longer. 

Why Choose Us?

From checkups to orthodontics to emergency care, we provide patient-focused dental services for all ages. By facilitating complete family dental care under one roof, we make it easier for parents and caregivers to do what’s best for their children. Plus, we’re able to develop long-term relationships with your family, better serving your needs as your children grow, your schedule gets busier, and you need care beyond that of a traditional children’s dentist. Valencia residents know we put their needs first, offering the same attentive care that we do for our own children.

Our goal as your child’s dentist is to intercept minor dental issues as quickly as possible. This allows for simpler, more affordable, and less invasive treatment. In turn, we help your child enjoy stronger teeth and a lower risk of complex dental issues as they grow up. 

Children’s Dental Services Offered in Our Valencia Office

Sierra Dental Practice offers several treatments tailored for children. Instead of finding a separate Valencia pediatric dentist, you can enjoy complete smile care for everyone in your family. Here are just some of the pediatric treatments that we provide:

Dental Exams and X-rays for Kids—Your child’s smile is growing rapidly and changing nonstop as the months go by. Routine examinations and intermittent diagnostic X-rays allow us to monitor changes and screen for early issues before they evolve into major ones. We use imaging to evaluate eruption patterns, monitor tooth development, screen for cysts, assess jaw growth, check for wisdom teeth, perform orthodontic evaluations, and more. 

Preventative Care—Professional dental cleanings and fluoride treatments give your child a head start in the fight against tooth decay. We provide age-appropriate advice to help your child keep their smile healthy into adulthood. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists recommends taking your child in for a dental checkup every six months. As your child’s permanent (adult) teeth begin to come in, we recommend placing protective sealants over them to make their teeth easier to clean; this usually occurs around ages 6 and 12, respectively.

Pediatric Dental Fillings—Cavities can spread rapidly in primary (baby) teeth. Treating them early prevents additional areas of tooth decay and minimizes the extent of treatment your child needs. We incorporate white composite fillings, which are minimally invasive. Although baby teeth eventually fall out on their own, active cavities should be treated promptly. Otherwise, premature tooth loss could lead to major orthodontic concerns and changes in their skeletal growth patterns.

Composite Bonding—It’s common for children to bump their mouths while they’re playing or if they trip on something. For small chips in teeth, we can place dental bonding to cover, protect, and restore your child’s tooth. This material is similar to what we use for fillings and is matched to blend in with your child’s smile. 

Emergency Treatment—Painful toothaches, chipped teeth, or injuries during an athletic activity usually mean you need to see a dentist immediately. For emergency children’s dentistry in Santa Clarita, Sierra Dental Practice is here to put your mind at ease. We’ll do everything we can to make your child comfortable as quickly as possible.

Orthodontics—We routinely monitor your child’s bite alignment and eruption patterns at every dental checkup. If correction or tooth alignment is needed, we also offer in-house orthodontic treatment. In addition to traditional braces, our dentists also provide Invisalign for teens and adults. For best results, plan your child’s first orthodontic evaluation no later than age 7.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I choose a pediatric dentist?

Asking for personal referrals is one of the best ways to choose a pediatric dentist. Valencia families may recommend a general family dentist or pediatric specialist, depending on what you’re looking for. You should also look at the provider’s experience and expanded training. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure their office hours and insurance policies fit your family’s needs.

Q: What is the difference between family dentistry and pediatric dentistry?

Family dental offices provide age-appropriate dental care at every stage of life, while a pediatric dentist will only treat young children, infants, and teens. Pediatric dentists specialize in child-specific therapies and behavior management and usually have hospital operating room privileges for major dental cases.

Q: What is the oldest age to see a pediatric dentist?

Most Valencia pediatric dentistry specialists will refer their patients to a general family dentist around their 18th birthday. Or when a teen needs more complex restorative treatments such as inlays, onlays, crowns, or cosmetic dentistry. Some children choose to transfer to a family dentist sooner, based on their personal preference.
