Children’s Dentistry in Antelope, California:
Exceptional Care for Your Little Ones
At Sacramento Dental Medicine, we understand that children require a special approach when visiting the dentist. Michael Narodovich, DMD and our team of dental professionals takes pride in providing exceptional care for our young patients, starting with a gentle and non-threatening approach to help ease any anxiety they may have. We work closely with parents to learn about their child's habits and personality, ensuring that we provide a personalized approach to their dental care.
Your Child's First Visit to Our Practice
At around one year old, we encourage parents to bring their child for their first dental appointment at our Antelope office. This visit is a no-pressure, meet-and-greet appointment with Dr. Narodovich, who will perform a visual exam to check for any concerns that need attention. He will gently count your child's primary teeth and create a personalized plan to keep their smile healthy throughout childhood and into adulthood.
Our office is equipped with televisions and family-friendly programming to keep your child entertained during their visit. We also offer prizes and balloons to leave them with a positive feeling about visiting the dentist.
Education and Prevention
At our dental practice, we emphasize the importance of educating preschool and older children on good oral health care habits. We illustrate proper brushing and flossing techniques and explain the significance of maintaining a healthy smile. As our young patients approach their teenage years, we encourage them to be diligent in their home oral care routines and to avoid unhealthy habits that can be detrimental to their dental health.
Prevention for our younger patients starts with a comprehensive examination during their first visit, including x-rays, fluoride treatments, and regular cleanings. Around the age of seven, Dr. Narodovich will perform an early intervention exam to check for any possible orthodontic concerns. We have techniques in place at our dental practice that can reduce or avoid some future orthodontic treatments when used while your child's bite is still maturing. These methods can also help correct the misalignment of teeth due to thumb sucking and tongue thrusting.
For children who grind their teeth, early orthodontic intervention is available to prevent damage to dental enamel and jaw function.
