Pediatric Dental Care

As an adult, you know the importance of proper oral care. It’s necessary in avoiding cavities, gum disease, tooth extraction, and much more. For children, however, it’s up to you as the parent to share with them the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums. But while at-home care is essential, you as a parent also need to bring your child in to visit Dr. Robert Rosenfeld for pediatric dental care. Between professional and at-home care, your child can maintain proper oral health habits from an early age, of which they’ll benefit from for a lifetime!

At our practice in Solana Beach, Dr. Rosenfeld offers pediatric dental care as part of our family and general dentistry services. With this, you can get great dental care for the whole family, no matter the age. From teeth cleanings to cosmetic services, you’ll truly benefit with Robert Rosenfeld DDS, but for now, let’s focus on child dentistry. Take a look below to learn how you can get your children off to the right start.

General Dentistry Solana Beach: Pediatric Dental Care

As far as pediatric dental care goes, you can get your child started with treatment as soon as they get their first tooth. It’s then that Dr. Rosenfeld can begin assessing their mouth and watching for any potential issues. Once your child reaches three years of age, Dr. Rosenfeld can start tooth-by-tooth assessments, monitoring both tooth and jaw development. From there, routine checkups will be necessary, as with any patient.

Of course, the importance of child dental care lies within teaching them the value of proper oral care at an early age. While you’ll help them at an early age, they’ll take those good habits and maintain them for years to come. They’ll also get in the groove of visiting the dentist regularly without the risk of fearing the dentist, which is a common occurrence among dental patients. So, what can you expect in your child’s initial appointments?

What’s Involved in Pediatric Dental Care?

As mentioned, pediatric dental care can start just after your child’s first tooth erupts. From here, Dr. Rosenfeld can monitor newly-erupting teeth and ensure they remain free of cavities. While you’ll have to help your child get started at home with toothbrushing and flossing, and even doing it for them at an early age, Dr. Rosenfeld can take care of the rest in his Solana Beach practice. Here, he’ll keep a close eye on a few things, as well as discuss with you any issues he may see. Take a look below to get an idea of what to expect at your child’s first dental appointment:

  • Dr. Rosenfeld will want to discuss the child’s oral habits, including harmful habits like thumb sucking and tongue thrusting.
  • Discuss proper nutrition for your child and their teeth.
  • Lay out proper oral care practices.
  • Assess their mouth for existing issues (depending on the number of teeth).
  • Plan for future appointments.
  • Monitor tooth and jaw movement.

"Dr. Rosenfeld is the best! I’ve been going to him for 10+ years now and he’s been nothing but caring and an excellent dentist to me. He really makes a point to make sure that you’re comfortable throughout the whole appointment. He even gave me lip balm during working on my cavity to make sure I was as comfortable as possible! When I come in, I feel nervous and dreadful but Dr. Rosenfeld somehow always has a way of leaving me with a smile when we are done. Not that i will hope for another cavity though, of course."

"Dr. Rosenfeld and his staff are absolutely AMAZING.  I have a fear of dentists and dentistry, but Dr. Rosenfeld and his outstanding team went the extra mile to make sure that I felt comfortable, reassured me that they would do anything and everything to take great care of me, and never made me feel anything but a very valued patient.  I never knew that an office would go so far to help me get through some challenging (at least for me) dental procedures.  Words cannot begin to express my gratitude for this office.  If only all businesses could provide the same level of customer service..  Oh, did I forget to mention that their work is top notch.  Worth every penny!"

"As good as it gets is correct!  Dr. Rosenfeld and his team are no-ka-oi!  He is a caring and kind professional with a bit o bend toward perfectionism.  The latter being a good thing when it comes to one's teeth.  At 58 he filled my first EVER cavity.  I was a bit nervous not having had that procedure ever before.  Dr. Rosenfeld took the time to make sure the area was numb to minimize my discomfort.  We agreed I probably needed a little more so he administered two more doses.  No discomfort whatsoever.  Toward the end of last year, I needed my first ever cap to repair a fissure in one of my molars.  This is where the perfectionism came into play - Dr. Rosenfeld made sure the cap exactly matched the color of my teeth. Dr. Rosenfeld is a marvelous practitioner!  I've recommended four friends to him and they all love him and his incredible team."
