Compassionate Toddler Dentistry in Torrance, CA

Good dental health starts with early care. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child's first dental visit should be when their first tooth comes in. This is typically between the ages of six and twelve months. As they grow, more teeth will come in and require a little more upkeep than before. That's why at Magicland Dental, we offer complete services for toddler dentistry in Torrance, CA.

As part of this care, we offer complimentary exams for children under two, so that we can take a proactive approach to their dental health. During this checkup, our team will assess your little one's teeth, gums, and jaw to ensure they are developing correctly and that there are no early signs of problems.

Understanding Toddler Dental Health

There are a number of topics and issues that parents are commonly concerned with when it comes to their child's dental care. Some of these topics include:

Teething: Toddler teething is a normal phase of your baby's development. While some children experience minimal discomfort, others can struggle with irritation. If your baby is uncomfortable during teething, you can soothe their gums by rubbing them with a clean finger or a cool, smooth spoon. Once the tooth comes in, you should clean it with a soft, moistened cloth. As more teeth arrive, you can use a very soft baby's toothbrush and toothpaste to clean them. Also, once your child's teeth are side by side, you will need to gently floss them each day.

Baby Bottle Syndrome: Did you know that putting your baby to bed with a bottle can encourage tooth decay? Milk and juice can pool around your child's teeth while they sleep and cause decay. This is often called baby bottle syndrome and is why you should ensure your baby finishes their bottle before you put them down.

Thumb or Finger Sucking: Most children will stop sucking their thumb by themselves as they age. However, if you feel your child's habit is becoming a problem that could affect their dental health, then do not hesitate to bring it up with our team. We're happy to offer suggestions to help.

Fluoride: One simple way to protect your toddler's molars and teeth is with fluoride applications. Our staff is happy to help add this extra line of protection to your child's dental care and will ensure that they are receiving the right amount of fluoride for their teeth.
