Oxnard pediatric dentist
Are you looking for an excellent dentist to provide your child with top-notch pediatric dental care? If so, you will want to visit us at Oxnard Dental Group. Our Oxnard pediatric dentist will make sure that your child’s teeth stay healthy, and that your child always has a pleasant experience at our dental office.
When you bring your child to see our Oxnard pediatric dentist, your child will be examined by one of our two top-notch dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Shawn Rabizadeh. Your child will receive a gentle dental exam and cleaning, to help ensure that his or her teeth remain healthy. Today it is recommended that children come in for their first dental exam when they reach one year of age or when their first baby tooth erupts – whichever occurs first. Even if your child only has baby teeth in his or her mouth, it is important that he or she has dental care so that the baby teeth will remain healthy and intact for as long as possible. Baby teeth play several important roles in your child’s oral health development including acting as placeholders for permanent teeth which have yet to erupt, helping your child to completely chew his or her food, and helping your child to develop clear speaking habits. Our entire dental staff knows the importance of your child having a fun and relaxing time at our dental office, and we will all always do our very best to make sure your child has a great time while here. It is recommended that children have fluoride treatments to strengthen their tooth enamel as a way to prevent against developing childhood cavities. Our dentists also recommend that children receive dental sealants to protect the flat chewing surfaces of their premolars and molars from cavity-causing materials.

If you want to make sure that your teeth stay healthy and intact, you will need to have healthy gums. At Oxnard Dental, our 93036 dentist will make sure that your gums stay healthy by providing gum therapy when needed.
When you come to our dental practice you will be seen by our 93036 dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Shawn Rabizadeh. Gum therapy is needed when the gums are not as healthy as they should be. There are different types of gum treatments that are provided at different stages of gum problems. If our dentist sees that your gums are slightly inflamed and you have gingivitis, a common precursor to gum disease, he may recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months in order to get your gums to return to good health. We also offer nonsurgical periodontal therapy. When tartar remains on teeth, it will encourage the development of deep pockets to form. Plaque, tartar, food debris and bacteria will all gather in these deep pockets and you will have gum disease. At this point, in mild to moderate cases of gum disease, our 93036 dentist may recommend that you have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. During this treatment, tartar and plaque will be removed from teeth as well as from slightly below the gum line. The root surfaces will be planed so that the supported tissues of the teeth can better reattached to the tooth surface. You may receive local anesthesia so that you can remain perfectly comfortable during this procedure. If gum infection is found, our dentist may provide you with topical antibiotic treatment during this procedure. This can be applied in the form of antibiotic powder. Our dentist may also prescribe an antibacterial mouth rinse to help keep any bacteria in your mouth at a minimum, as well as oral antibiotic medication.
