Children’s Dentistry in Issaquah, WA
Keep Your Child's Smile Healthy
It’s recommended by the American Dental Association that children should begin to regularly see a dentist once a majority of their baby teeth have grown in. Going to the dentist for the first time is an unfamiliar experience, and kids can become easily frightened in these situations. You’ll want to entrust your loved one to a professional who is well-respected in the community. Rely on Eastside Family Dentistry for all of your children’s dentistry needs. Compassionate Dr. Cristescu and our friendly team are happy to care for the smallest smiles in your household.
Kids Dental Care
Eastside Family Dentistry recommends your child's first visit by age one for a knee-to-knee examination. During the visit, your child's mouth will be examined for any sign of disease or cavities, and a fluoride varnish will be applied. Dr. Cristescu and her team will discuss your child's diet and habits. If you choose to forego fluoride, we offer a xylitol-containing product that can also help prevent cavities and keep your child's teeth healthy.
If your child is comfortable in the dental chair at their initial examination, Dr. Cristescu will carefully count each of your child’s teeth and check for cavities. She’ll explain each step of the procedure so that your son or daughter doesn’t become apprehensive; in addition, she’ll gladly answer any questions that they may have concerning dental health. Based on the water fluoride content in your community, fluoride supplements may be recommended.
After the exam, a member of our children’s dentistry team will gently cleanse your child’s teeth to remove any plaque or tartar. At this time, we’ll also talk to them about good dental hygiene. We truly enjoy helping each of our patients develop reliable at-home care techniques.
