As parents everywhere know, children are not small adults. They have unique challenges and needs, and their smiles are no different. Tiny teeth can have big dental health concerns, and Dr. Frame, our Santa Clara pediatric dentistry expert, has the skills and experience required to manage these concerns. We offer comprehensive pediatric dental care that can keep baby teeth healthy and allow adult teeth to come in strong.
Children should have their first dental appointment by the time they are a year old, according to the American Dental Association. Even if your child has no teeth yet, this visit is still important. As baby and adult teeth develop, good dental habits can ensure they erupt properly and without complication. Dr. Frame, our expert in pediatric dentistry in Santa Clara, will help you learn how to take care of your baby’s gums and eventual teeth so that he or she can have a sweet, healthy smile when the teeth finally erupt.

Visiting Dr. Frame, our Santa Clara pediatric dentistry expert, also helps your child become accustomed to dental visits. At each visit, Dr. Frame builds a rapport with your child and works to make every visit as positive and enjoyable as possible for toddlers, teens and every age in between. We take the time to get to know your child, and we explain everything that we are going to do to in child-friendly, age-appropriate terms to relieve anxiety and encourage good dental habits right from the start.
Early tooth decay is five times as common as asthma and can lead to health problems and tooth loss and can even interfere with your child’s ability to learn. Dr. Frame, our expert in pediatric dentistry in Santa Clara, offers pediatric exams, preventative treatments such as sealants and fluoride treatments, tooth-colored fillings, and dental hygiene and habit counseling to help kids and their parents learn to better care for their teeth.
With the right preventative care and treatments, your child’s teeth can last a lifetime. Give us a call today to find out more or to schedule your appointment with our dentist in Santa Clara.
