What is the cost of children’s dental procedures in the Azusa area?
It is important for parents to set a proper foundation for their children when it comes to dental care. Knowing the procedures available in our practice can help parents decide what needs to be done for the health and wellness of their children’s smiles. Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry works with parents to educate them on the steps necessary for achieving better dental health and wellness.
Parents are urged to have their children seen by a dentist as soon as their first tooth cuts through the gum line. This typically happens at or before the age of one. Dr. Brianne Luu can perform an examination, while also getting the child familiar with the dental practice environment. This is a great time to introduce little ones to the professionals who will be helping them achieve better oral health over the years, and this can greatly reduce anxieties over visiting the dentist as they get older.
Dr. Brianne Luu offers many of the same services for children as offered for adults, which include:
- Broken tooth repair
- Cleanings and examinations
- Fluoride treatments
- Cavity fillings
Many patients will ask their dentist about the cost of children’s dental procedures. These vary depending on many different factors, so the best way to receive an accurate quote for care is to book an appointment with Dr. Brianne Luu for an examination. Parents are also encouraged to bring their dental insurance cards as many procedures for children may be covered under their policy. This can greatly reduce the out-of-pocket expense of certain treatments.
However, parents are educated on the cost of preventative treatment versus reactive dental care. When patients are proactive about their dental health, they visit their dentist regularly and take care of their teeth between visits with brushing and flossing after every meal. They also visit their dentist as soon as any problems or concerns arise. The cost of maintaining a healthy smile is much lower than addressing problems due to poor oral hygiene. Reactive dental care can be expensive, which is why our team focuses on providing general and preventative care to avoid the costs associated with repairing the smile.
