Orange Family Dentistry
We had a terrible experience. I took both of my kids for a regular cleaning. They recommended that I seal the kids teeth which was fine but I wanted to space the seals out because of our insurance. They assured me that the insurance would cover the expense. After we got home I had to make an appointment with another dentist because my kids were in such pain (both kids) and they refused to go back to the same dentist. After a couple more weeks I received a bill for over $400.00 and after calling I was told that it was a mistake, and the insurance did not cover what they thought so I was left paying the bill. I paid the bill. Now after almost a year I get a collection notice and had to go back and provide proof that I paid it.
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
