Pediatric Dentistry

Just as kids receive their medical care from a pediatrician, they should receive dental care from a pediatric dentist. The extra training pediatric dentists go through gives them a unique understanding of children’s needs, including for dental care in hospitals, for orthodontic teeth straightening, and for children with special needs.

The Benefits of Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentists are experienced in offering children the extra support and patience they require during checkups and dental treatments and know how to teach and encourage children to take care of their oral health. Plus, their dental offices are fitted with special equipment to receive kids of all ages.

Types of Pediatric Dentistry

Children can start seeing a pediatric dentist as soon as their first teeth erupt. The dentist will carry out an infant oral health exam, which includes a risk assessment for caries. As kids grow up, your pediatric dentist will take measures to prevent dental problems by cleaning teeth, providing fluoride treatments, and offering diet recommendations. They can also help children overcome habits like overusing a pacifier or thumb sucking.

If your child suffers from a dental problems, such as cavities, gum disease, or improper bite, your pediatric dentist will diagnose the condition early and start treatment to correct the problem. Finally, you can rely on your pediatric dentist in an emergency, such as in the case of an injury leading to a fractured or knocked-out tooth.
