Caring Family Dentist in Morgan Hill
Just like adults, children sometimes suffer from oral health problems such as bruxism, decay and cavities. Michael Singh, D.D.S., a family dentist in Morgan Hill, is specially trained to handle treatment of these issues on a child's delicate teeth. Has your child chipped a tooth due to a fall off a bike or another accident? We also offer bonding to repair small chips.
Child’s First Dental Visit
Children should begin seeing the dentist as soon as they have teeth. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends you schedule your child's first appointment with a pediatric dentist around his or her first birthday. For many children, the unknown can be quite scary. For this reason, we strive to provide a relaxing and comfortable environment to help ease your child's mind during the exam. Each member of our staff is compassionate, professional and has a strong understanding of the special circumstances that surround pediatric dentistry.
Grinding of the teeth, which may happen when a child is concentrating or while he or she is asleep, wears down the teeth and may even cause them to crack. We can provide your child with a nightguard that protects the teeth during sleep.
There are several circumstances that may require extraction. Whether you need a kid’s dentist to remove baby teeth that are preventing permanent teeth from erupting, impacted wisdom teeth or a tooth that is excessively decayed, we can help. We make your child as comfortable as possible before removing teeth using the latest techniques and technologies.
Tooth Decay Prevention
We also help you and your child practice good oral hygiene habits. Daily brushing and flossing, along with regular visits to the children’s dentist, help to protect from plaque that causes discoloration, sensitive teeth and cavities. Unfortunately, no matter how good your dental practices are, sometimes your child will get a cavity. If this happens, Michael Singh, D.D.S. can provide fillings to restore the tooth's function.
