As a parent, you want the best for your child, and this includes their dental health. Pediatric dentistry focuses on providing dental care for infants, children, and adolescents. These dental professionals are specially trained to handle the unique needs of young patients and can provide a range of services to promote healthy teeth and gums. By taking your child to a pediatric dentist, you can help ensure that they receive the specialized dental care they need to develop and maintain a healthy smile for life.

Dental cleanings:

Regular dental cleanings are essential to maintaining good oral health. During a cleaning, a pediatric dentist will remove plaque and tartar buildup, as well as any surface stains on the teeth. They will also polish the teeth to give them a clean, smooth finish.

Fluoride treatments:

Fluoride is a mineral that can help strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities. Pediatric dentists may recommend fluoride treatments to children who are at a higher risk for tooth decay, such as those who have a history of cavities or who live in areas with non-fluoridated water.

Dental Sealants:

Dental sealants are thin, plastic coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to help protect them from decay. They are especially helpful for children who have deep grooves or pits in their teeth that are difficult to clean.

Cavity fillings:

If a child has a cavity, a pediatric dentist will need to remove the decayed portion of the tooth and fill it with a dental filling. This can help prevent the cavity from getting worse and causing more serious dental problems.

Orthodontic evaluations:

Pediatric dentists can also evaluate children for orthodontic treatment, such as braces or clear aligners. They can identify bite and alignment issues early on and recommend treatment options to help correct them.

Overall, the goal of pediatric dentistry is to help children develop healthy habits that will keep their teeth and gums strong and healthy for life. By providing a range of preventative and restorative treatments, pediatric dentists can help ensure that children receive the best possible dental care from an early age.

Common Questions About Pediatric Dentistry

My kid has no issues, should I schedule a dental checkup?

Pediatric dentistry aims to maintain children's oral health as they mature into adults. This encompasses delivering preventative dental care, diagnosing and treating oral conditions and diseases, and promoting the development of good oral hygiene habits. A visit may highlight a small problem that could grow into something bigger (and more expensive) if left unchecked. Getting dental checkups for your children will also help educate them on the value of oral hygiene over a lifetime. 

How to deal with a child who is afraid to go to the dentist.

Fear of the dentist comes from somewhere! Make sure you're not projecting your own fear onto your child. Have you been to the dentist recently? Do you go on a regular basis? If a child sees that you have no issue with going to the dentist yourself, it is less of an issue. Beyond that, we like to ease children into the process. The first visit is a simple exam. We may also review oral habits and reinforce brushing and flossing. The entire office atmosphere is to asuage fear and show children that it is not only painless, it can be fun.
