Dental Exams & Cleanings

At Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we believe that a strong foundation in preventative care is essential to your child’s bright and healthy smile. The best way to build this foundation is with biannual exams and cleanings, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. These appointments start with your child’s teeth being fully cleaned to remove any plaque or tarter build-up that may have accumulated since their last appointment. Our team will identify which areas your child is brushing well and where there is room for improvement. Giving your child the tools and teaching them how to keep their smile confident and healthy are essential to what we do.

After your child’s teeth have been cleaned, we will complete their exam and answer any questions you or your child may have. These exams are an important way to monitor your child’s growth and development as well as make sure they do not have any cavities. These exams also provide an opportunity for us to go over with your child where they can improve their oral hygiene habits.

Digital X-Rays

At Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we are dedicated to ensuring your child receives the safest and most comprehensive dental care available, which is why we proudly offer Digital Radiographs, commonly known as X-rays.

Digital radiographs are a crucial diagnostic tool that reveals essential information beyond what can be observed during a routine visual oral examination. They provide invaluable insights into the presence of “flossing” cavities, enabling us to assess growth and development, bone health, detect abnormal pathology, traumas, and identify other conditions that may otherwise remain unnoticed.

We prioritize your child’s overall health and well-being, which is why we take radiation exposure seriously. Our digital dental X-rays emit up to 80% less radiation compared to traditional X-rays, aligning with our commitment to reducing radiation exposure while providing top-notch dental diagnostics and care.

Sealants - Montclair Pediatric Dentistry in Oakland


At Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we offer a valuable dental solution known as sealants. Dental sealants work to prevent cavities by sealing pits and fissures that naturally occur in molars. Sealants “seal off” the pit and fissure of your molars to prevent food and plaque from collecting and forming cavities.

Think of a tooth’s top (chewing) surface as a mountain with many grooves. When your child eats, food gets caught in those grooves.  Although daily brushing is essential, applying a dental sealant will enhance the ability to keep those hard-to-reach areas clean. A dental sealant flows into the grooves, “sealing” the tooth and reducing the probability of cavities.

By offering dental sealants as part of our comprehensive dental solutions at Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we’re not only focused on addressing current dental concerns but also committed to preventing future cavities, ensuring your child enjoys a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

At Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we believe in staying at the forefront of dental innovations, and SDF is one example of our commitment to providing your child with the best possible care. As always, your child’s well-being and comfort are our top priorities, and we’re here to make their dental experience as positive and stress-free as possible.

SDF treatment is a minimally invasive option that can be highly beneficial for your child’s oral health. This treatment involves applying a safe and effective liquid solution to teeth affected by cavities or early stages of decay. SDF helps halt the progression of decay, making it an excellent choice for children who may be anxious about traditional dental procedures.
