CHILDREN’S DENTISTRY in Las Vegas

It’s important to see a dentist early in a child’s life as it allows Dr. Balle and Dr. Nguyen to examine his/her mouth and discuss specific oral hygiene instructions for the child.

A Dentist for Kids

Healthy smiles begin in infancy! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children first see Dr. Balle or Dr. Nguyen at the age of one year or when the first tooth emerges. It is important to see Dr. Balle and Dr. Nguyen for children early in a child’s life because it allows our dentists to examine the mouth and discuss specific oral hygiene instructions for the child. Parents should begin brushing and flossing their children’s teeth when the first tooth emerges. When they are old enough, parents should teach their children how to brush and floss properly. Setting a high standard of oral hygiene early on will help children develop healthy oral hygiene habits for life!

Preventative Dental Care

Just like adults, children should see Dr. Balle or Dr. Nguyen a minimum of twice a year. The mouth is constantly changing and growing in childhood. Along with this growth can come injuries and issues that, when addressed early, can be easily treated.

Pediatric dentistry focuses on preventive care. Emphasis is placed on home care, regular checkups, and cleanings. There are many preventive measures available to help your children’s teeth healthy and clean, including sealants, fluoride treatments, and mouth guards. Part of preventive pediatric dentistry also focuses on educating the parent about common dental issues that kids may have such as bruxism, thumb sucking, and baby bottle tooth decay.

Kids Dental Care at Home

Children should be supervised when brushing and flossing at home and will continue to need assistance until refined dexterity levels are achieved. A suggested protocol is to have the child brush first and then the parent brush right after. If Dr. Balle or Dr. Nguyen have recommended a home fluoride treatment, it must be closely monitored by parents or guardians to ensure that the child does not swallow the fluoride. Additionally, children should not use a fluoridated toothpaste until they are able to avoid swallowing the toothpaste while brushing.

Balle & Associates provides important pre- and post-operation instructions along with proper cleaning and oral hygiene information such as flossing, brushing, and diet. Our dentists take time to explain what they are doing to pediatric patients so they are less nervous and enjoy the process more. The more kids know about how important their teeth are and how to care for them, the better their dental health will be throughout their lives.
