Dental PracticeBurbank, CA
When you visit our pediatric dental practice in Burbank, we will spend time getting to know your child and learn about any health concerns you might have. By conducting an examination and taking X-rays, we can determine the current health of your child's teeth, gums, and jawbone. We will also discuss your child's lifestyle with you and any goals you have for your child's smile. This will allow us to create a comprehensive treatment plan.
In addition to performing routine teeth cleanings and completing beautiful smile makeovers, there are a variety of procedures we complete on a daily basis that are important for your child's oral health. Here are a few of the reasons you should call (818) 483-9064 and schedule an appointment to see Dr. Sohrab.
Visit a dental practice in Burbank to reduce your child’s risk of gum disease
While most people think professional teeth cleanings are only to prevent cavities, they also serve another important purpose in preventing gum disease. Adult tooth loss is incredibly common with gum disease as it is a leading cause. Parents who instill the practice of proper oral hygiene in their children at a young age, decrease the risk of gum disease for their children as they age. At Star Kids Dental & Orthodontics, we know that gum disease is typically caused by plaque building up on the teeth and becoming trapped under the gums. When your child practices good oral hygiene, which includes brushing twice a day and flossing daily, the risk of getting gum disease is reduced. However, no matter how diligent your child is, it is possible for plaque to become trapped in hard-to-reach spaces. This is why professional dental cleaning is so important. We can prevent gum disease by performing a deep cleaning to remove all of the plaque and tartar from your child's mouth. If we identify early signs of gum disease, we can treat it right away before it causes irritation or gum recession. If you live in the Burbank area, we invite you to call 818-483-9064 to schedule an appointment for your child's dental cleaning today.
Visit a pediatric dental practice in Burbank if your child’s tooth becomes damaged
While teeth are made of strong dentin and enamel, it is possible for them to become damaged. Let's face it - accidents happen, whether it be from playing sports or playing in general, and teeth can get damaged. When this happens, it is important to visit our dental office so our pediatric dental team can complete a restoration for your child. By leaving a child's damaged tooth exposed, bacteria can be allowed to infect the area and possibly cause further issues. We can treat the tooth quickly so it can be restored to full functionality and appearance. Selecting the right dentist office is critical. You will want a restoration for your child that looks natural and blends in so no one can tell the difference.

Visit a dental practice in Burbank to have your child’s restorations inspected
In our Burbank, CA we can inspect your child's restorations to ensure they are holding up. Dental fillings, for example, are not designed to last forever. They can become worn down over time, and the initial space they were filling can enlarge due to wear from daily eating and drinking. This can create the need to have the filling replaced or a dental crown placed around the tooth. At Star Kids Dental & Orthodontics, we can inspect your child's dental fillings, crowns, and bonding when you come in for a dental appointment. If they are looking worn, we will let you know, so you can determine if you want to replace them preemptively or wait until it is necessary. Taking action in advance can sometimes prevent future discomfort, so it is important to consider all of your options.
Visit a dental practice in Burbank to plan for your child’s future
At Star Kids Dental & Orthodontics, we help our patients to have a lifetime of good oral health with a smile they can enjoy both now and in the future. This requires careful planning. The best case scenario is for your child to maintain all of the adult teeth as he or she ages. To do so, your child's teeth need to be cared for at home and need to have professional teeth cleanings twice per year. This will help to prevent cavities and gum disease. Your child's treatment plan should also include steps that can be taken to keep your child's smile bright and beautiful. For example, we can whiten your child's teeth on a set schedule. When you visit our dental office, we can work together to create a plan that works for your child's health, both now and well into the future. To get started, call 818-483-9064.
