At Estrella Dental, kids dentistry is about more than bright, healthy smiles. Drs. Miguel and Jaime Estrella want to make sure your child’s visit is rewarding and fun, so there’s no fear of “next time”. Drs. Estrella and their entire dental team take time to earn the trust of both you and your child, to make sure each trip to the family dentist is a pleasant, calm experience.
We encourage you and your child to ask questions and are always happy to address any concerns you have as a parent. We offer empathetic oral health education and use simple explanations to answer your child’s questions and reassure them.
Your Child’s First Visit
Drs. Estrella and Dr. Zazueta understand that you want the best for your child. At Estrella Dental, we focus on providing the highest quality pediatric dental care possible. It’s completely normal for a child to be unsure or nervous about their first dental visit, but at Estrella Dental, they don’t have to be! Our practice is designed to make your child comfortable and excited to visit the dentist.
Pediatric Dental Checkups
Your child’s health and wellbeing are our first priority! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) advises that children be seen for a pediatric dental checkup every 6 months. These visits allow our pediatric dental team to closely monitor new changes in your child’s mouth and ensure that you, as a parent, have the information you need to promote continued oral health in your child.
Drs. Estrella may suggest additional checkups if your child is more susceptible to cavities, or if your child is showing signs of orthodontic problems
Our practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions.
Digital x-rays are key to early detection and help guide effective treatment of dental problems. Digital x-rays also expose your child to less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
Dental fluoride treatments are safe and effective in decreasing the amount of cavities in children. Drs. Estrella and their pediatric dental team often recommend fluoride treatments along with dental sealants to protect your child’s teeth. Fluoride acts as a shield for the tooth’s outer enamel and can actually reverse early dental decay in some children.
