InStyle Dental, a dental office in San Gabriel, CA, has announced that they are now accepting new pediatric patients in San Gabriel and neighboring areas. This dental office provides family dentistry services and welcomes children as young as one year old because they firmly believe that a lifetime of good oral care starts with the very first tooth. Their pediatric dentistry services are based on guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. They are encouraging patients to bring their children to the dental office for a checkup within six months after the first tooth has appeared.
Carolina Rodriguez, Administrator for InStyle Dental, says, “While you and your child visit with Dr. Brian Kar or Dr. Chrissy Park, we’ll teach you excellent at-home oral hygiene, so you can continue to care for your child’s oral health and pass on good habits when your child is old enough to brush and floss on their own. Bring your questions and we’ll spend as much time as needed making sure you get all the answers.”
The whole team at InStyle Dental are committed to ensuring the comfort of patients, especially the kids, when receiving dental care. The office provides streaming video with children's programs so the kids may be able to relax during their dental visit. This is because they want the children to be motivated to come to the dentist, and they want patients to understand that the dental office is a safe, gentle, and fun environment that is focused on caring for the children’s oral health.
They make use of the latest sterilization system to make sure that the children are safe and that they are complying with the comprehensive infection control guidelines suggested by the American Dental Association and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Their recommendation is that the child’s first dental visit be scheduled on his or her first birthday. It is essential to ensure that this first visit should be as much as possible enjoyable and positive for the child. They want the kids to enjoy getting to know the doctors and staff and the dental office and feel comfortable at all times. The first visit should be able to build trust and help in putting the child at ease in succeeding dental visits.
During the child’s first dental visit, the dentists at InStyle Dental will perform dental examination in an age-appropriate manner and focus on gaining he child’s trust. Parents are welcome to provide input on how they think this can be done in the best way. They will encourage the child to watch one of the stuffed animals get a “tooth check” and then provide the child with oral hygiene instructions and then explain how to count teeth. Next, they will explain how the dental “tools” are used.
Once the child is feeling relaxed and ready, they will then proceed with the dental appointment. Children who are more than three years old are usually comfortable sitting on the dental chair alone. For toddlers and infants, they usually apply a “knee-to-knee” technique with the help of one parent. In such a position, the baby will be able to see the parent while the exam is being conducted. Many babies are comfortable with this procedure, but even if there is a bit of fussing, the procedure only requires a few minutes.
The first tooth usually erupts between six to 10 months and the gums are often sore and tender at this particular time. The dentists at InStyle Dental recommend that parents rub the sore gums gently with a clean finger, wet cloth, or the back of a cold spoon to help sooth the gums. It is also vital to look for signs of baby bottle decay. The teeth should be examined on the tongue side of the top front teeth every two weeks for brown spotting.
Parents who are interested in the oral health of their children may want to check out the website of InStyle Dental, or contact them on the phone or through email. They are open from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, from Monday to Saturday.
