Educational Dental Care
Our Simi Valley pediatric dentist makes patient education, both parent and child, her primary goal. We teach proper hygiene techniques and encourage parents to accompany their children into the operatories during their dental appointment. Parents are then shown how best to care for their child’s smile, by serving as an example.
Prevention in a Comfortable Environment
Dr. Endrizzi ensures patients are comfortable whenever they visit our practice. Younger patients are welcomed when they enter the office and are encouraged to ask any questions they may have. To enhance the patient experience, we emphasize preventive dental care. Dental prevention creates less invasive treatment in the future, and allows us to acclimate children to the dental environment, without developing phobias. We provide a variety of preventive dental services, including:
- Fluoride Varnish
- Dental Sealants
- Routine Cleanings
Pediatric Restorative Services
Infection and physical damage to baby teeth can lead to lasting problems with adult teeth. If your child has experienced damage to their smile through decay or physical trauma, Dr. Endrizzi offers gentle restorative services. At Avenue of Smiles, we use composite resin to provide tooth-colored fillings, correcting small sites of decay without affecting the natural cosmetic appeal of your child’s teeth.
For severe sites of decay, we provide crowns. These caps are made to look like natural teeth and ensure the continued stability of your child’s natural smile.
Every person has a strip of tissue connecting the lips and tongue to the mouth, called the frenum; however, if this band of tissue be too small, movement of tongue can be limited. Infants and very young children with frenum tie problems have difficulty eating and developing speech.
Dr. Endrizzi provides laser frenectomies to ensure children can comfortably bottle and breastfeed. Reducing the pull on tongue and lips also creates ample opportunity for proper speech to develop. The use of lasers not only quickens the time required heal, but enhances patient comfort during and after the procedure.
