Kids Are Welcome at Dr. Celaj’s Dental Office
Our Sacramento children’s dental services include an emphasis on preventative dental health. Most of us here at Dr. Celaj’s office are parents too so we understand the challenges of maintaining our kid’s dental health.
First Dental Visit for Children
Dr. Celaj recommends that children begin seeing a dentist between the ages of 2 and 3.
This first dental appointment for your child is commonly very short and most of the time involves no or very little actual treatment.
Depending on your preference and how comfortable your child is, you may elect to sit in the examination room to accompany your child.
Of course lots of children are perfectly comfortable in Dr. Celaj’s office, so you may also remain in the reception area.
During this first appointment we:
- Gently examine your child’s teeth and gums.
- Take X-rays – if necessary (to reveal decay and check on the progress of your child’s permanent teeth under the gums).
- Clean your child’s teeth.
- May apply topical fluoride (to help protect against tooth decay).
Most important of all, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth.
If you need a dentist that accepts children, call Dr. Arben Celaj at (916) 488-1933.
Dental Sealants for Children
Dental sealants are proven to be a highly effective preventative measure for avoiding kids tooth decay.
These sealants are applied to the biting surfaces of your children’s chewing teeth, effectively sealing the crevices of each tooth against decay.
By acting as a protection barrier between the natural healthy tooth surface and damaging plaque forming acids & bacteria, dental sealants are a very cost-effective method of a long-term preventative dentistry treatment plan for your child.
Sealants also help protect teeth from food particles and plaque buildup that brushing and flossing doesn’t.
Dental sealants are easily applied, with the normal procedure normally only taking a few minutes. Sealants are relatively durable, holding up well under normal chewing often lasting several years before a reapplication is needed.
Both children and adults can benefit from dental sealants!
