Childrens Dentistry in Los Gatos, CA

The earlier children begin receiving dental care, the healthier their mouths will remain throughout their lives. Regular dental checkups for children will help prevent tooth decay and cavities that otherwise cause pain, discomfort, disturb their concentration, and other medical problems. Young people with healthy teeth speak, chew food quickly, and smile with confidence. At Tod Anderson DDS in Los Gatos, California, we provide competent care for children to help them develop good oral hygiene care and well-formed teeth.

Why Are Protecting Young Teeth Important?

Getting your child timely oral care will help maintain their dental health in the future. Even before their first tooth emerges, you should begin cleaning your child's mouth. Reasons for ensuring good dental hygiene for your child include:

Healthy Adult Teeth

Protecting your child's primary teeth against decay and other issues is vital, as they directly impact the development of their adult teeth. If a tooth falls out due to cavities and decay, the likelihood of crowding problems with adult teeth gets enhanced. Baby teeth should naturally fall out when adult teeth begin to erupt.

Speech Development

Teeth manage the flow of air exiting the mouth to create different sounds. They are critical to voicing different sounds while moving their tongue to various locations against their teeth.

Healthy Smile

A healthy smile needs a correctly aligned set of teeth. Decayed, discolored, or crooked teeth can disturb their smile and consequently impact their confidence levels.

Eating and Chewing

A child needs good baby teeth to bite and chew their food efficiently. Lack of a balanced diet can affect their overall health.

Routine Teeth Cleanings

We provide routine teeth cleanings at least once every six months. These cleanings allow us to ensure the healthy development of the teeth and encourage proper brushing and flossing habits.

Exam with X-Rays

A detailed look at your child's teeth will help spot cavities or other dental issues. If required, we will take dental X-rays to support our visual diagnosis. If any problems are identified, we will extend timely dental care to ensure the issues do not impact their development of teeth.

Dental Sealants

Children might find the cleaning of back teeth pretty challenging. Sealant applications on the molar teeth can help prevent the development of tooth decay and cavities.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride applications can prevent cavities and support healthy tooth enamel.

Tooth Fillings

This is a standard treatment for treating cavities, removing the decay, and replacing it with a long-lasting composite filling.

Orthodontic Treatment

We offer orthodontic treatments like metal braces, clear ceramic braces, and Invisalign. Problems like overcrowding, gaps, underbite, and overbite can be corrected.
