Smiles For Your Child

At Magicland, we’re all about preventing tooth decay and starting good dental care habits early. While kids usually begin getting their permanent teeth around age six, it’s important that your kids learn proper dental hygiene and get the dental care they need at an early age.

Baby Teeth –  It’s important that your child’s baby teeth are cared for properly. They play a vital role in speech development and they help your child chew properly to help ensure good nutrition. They also help to maintain proper space so permanent teeth can come in correctly.

Checkups and Cleanings – Our experienced, kid-friendly professionals use a very gentle touch to carefully clean and polish your child’s teeth and check for cavities or other problems. For children this age, we recommend a checkup and cleaning every six months.

X-Rays – We may need to x-ray your child’s teeth, since that’s the best way to spot decay or other unseen problems and to make sure permanent teeth are coming in properly. At Magicland, we use digital x-rays that require less radiation and makes it easier to spot problems and show them to you. For a growing child, Magicland suggests x-rays once each year.

At the checkup, we’ll talk to you about fluoride, since it’s important that your child get the right amount.

Sealants on back teeth are an excellent, painless way to keep out food, plaque and acid that causes tooth decay. If your child needs a filling, we may suggest one that is tooth-colored so it will blend in and look natural.

To encourage children to be calm and at ease, we’ve designed our entire office to be very reassuring. If your child is more anxious, though, we have several sedation options that can help your child relax.

To schedule an appointment for your child, call/text us at 888-329-8111 or fill the online form here.

FAQs

Use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your baby’s teeth at least once per day, preferably at bedtime.
Pediatric dentists, also called pedodontists, are specially trained to care for your child’s teeth and mouth. With an additional two to three years of training in children’s dentistry, pedodontists have the experience to safeguard your child’s dental health from infancy through adolescence. Pediatric dentists also help children feel at ease and enthusiastic about caring for their teeth at home.
Of course, baby teeth affect how your child talks, chews and smiles. Baby teeth also help pave the way for adult teeth to emerge through the gums.
To help minimize pain and discomfort, use warm water to rinse the inflamed area of your child’s mouth and give your child oral acetaminophen. Then, make an appointment with your child’s pediatric dentist as soon as possible.
These habits are likely only to cause a problem for your child’s teeth if they continue past age 3. If needed, your child’s pediatric dentist can recommend a mouth appliance or distasteful medicine to apply to the thumb to discourage thumb-sucking.
Don’t put your child to sleep while nursing or give them a bedtime bottle that contains anything other than water. Keep up with your child’s schedule of regular dental checkups and cleanings, and clean your child’s teeth properly.
Most children should have a dental checkup and cleaning every six months. Your child’s pediatric dentist will make a recommendation tailored to his or her individual dental needs.
Start using toothpaste to brush your baby’s teeth as soon as they come through the gums. Apply a tiny smear (about the size of a grain of rice) of fluoride toothpaste to the toothbrush to clean your baby’s teeth twice each day. Older children (between ages 3 and 6) can start using a pea-sized amount of toothpaste to brush teeth.
Promoting healthy food choices, especially fruits and vegetables, is one of the best things you can do for your child’s dental health. Limit sugars, starches and carbohydrates to prevent tooth decay. Beware of how long sticky, sugary foods are allowed to remain on your child’s teeth before saliva or the toothbrush washes them away.
