Children’s Dental Services in Laguna Hills
We love treating children
Optimum dental health begins early in life with proper childhood dental care. A vital part of pediatric dentistry is making children feel at ease at the dentist’s office.
Dr. Conkle and Dr. Garcia are both fathers themselves and love working with kids. When you bring your child to Saddleback Dentistry, you can expect our staff and doctors to treat them as if they were their own, giving them the special attention they need to feel truly comfortable.
We encourage our child patients to join our No-Cavity Club. The kids are entered in a monthly drawing, and the winner receives a prize of a $25 gift card to Target. After their visit, every child receives a little gift package including floss, toothpaste and mouthwash.
Your child’s first visit
The doctors encourage you to begin bringing your child into the office around the age of three. The purpose of their initial visits is to help them build up trust with their dentist and make them feel at ease in the dentist’s chair.
During your child’s first visit, they will simply get comfortable and the dentist will take a look at their mouth in a visual exam. No X-rays will be taken. We may polish your child’s teeth if their comfort level is high enough.
Our gentle services for children
Dr. Garcia and Dr. Conkle handle all phases of dentistry, which means they are capable of treating virtually any issue that your child may have.
Here are some of the services we offer for children:
Taking good care of your teeth with regular cleanings from an early age builds a strong foundation for a lifetime of good oral health. Our friendly hygienists provide gentle yet thorough cleanings for your child and instruct them on proper dental hygiene habits.
Sealants are an excellent, cost-effective way to prevent cavities in your child’s teeth. In this procedure, the doctor will apply a thin layer of plastic-like material over the grooves and pits on their teeth to prevent decay.
We offer tooth-colored fillings for children with cavities. This is considered to be a healthier and more aesthetic alternative to metal-containing fillings.
Orthodontics for a beautiful, healthy smile
Our orthodontist, Dr. Lee, loves working with young patients to give them a beautiful, straight smile. Straightening your child’s teeth not only gives them a confidence boost, but it also can help protect them from oral health problems like gum disease, tooth decay and misaligned jaws.
Invisalign Teen clear teeth aligners
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment comprised of clear, plastic aligners. It is a comfortable, virtually invisible alternative to traditional metal braces. We are a provider of Invisalign Teen, an Invisalign system specially adapted especially for teenagers.
We look forward to meeting your child!
