Children are not just small adults: They have unique needs and concerns. Understanding and addressing these needs and concerns are critical to ensuring they enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles. Dr. Martirosyan, our Glendale childrens dentist, works closely with our young patients to help them establish a strong dental foundation. We offer family friendly dental care for patients of all ages, and you can be confident that your children will get the care they need to build good dental habits for life.
Those small teeth that begin to appear around six months are for more than just keeping your baby’s smile adorable. These primary teeth act as placeholders for the adult teeth, help your child learn to speak properly and facilitate a nutritious diet. Unfortunately, many children suffer from early tooth decay and other dental problems that lead to cavities and lost teeth. Dr. Martirosyan, our childrens dentist in Glendale, helps parents, guardians and children learn about the best ways to keep these young smiles healthy.
Glendale Childrens Dentist
Dr. Martirosyan, our Glendale childrens dentist, focuses on prevention so that your child can enjoy a lifetime of strong smiles. Patient education will be included in each dental appointment. We will explain each step of the dental exam to you and your child, talk about ways to keep teeth clean, explore healthy nutritional choices and learn about new products or techniques. You and your child will be actively involved in each checkup and cleaning, and if we recommend a specific treatment or procedure, we will thoroughly explain it and answer your questions.
Some kids need more than the basics. Dr. Martirosyan may recommend fluoride treatment or dental sealants to better protect your child’s teeth, or she may suggest early orthodontics to help guide the growth of your child’s jaw. Kids with early decay may need dental fillings or crowns to protect their primary teeth from further damage. At each appointment, we will track changes, monitor areas of concern and identify the best way to manage your child’s smile to reduce the risk of long-term dental issues.
