Comprehensive dental care is important for infants and children. We can help ensure your young family has a strong start to keeping a healthy smile for a lifetime.
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist
Simply put, specialization makes pediatric dentists the right choice for your kids from infancy through young adulthood. Think of them as a kid’s doctor that has a specific focus on their oral health. If you want to become really good at something, having a narrow focus can help. That is exactly what pediatric dentistry is all about. Instead of waving a broad brush across the spectrum of all dentistry, pediatric dentists have chosen to focus specifically on treating children and meeting their unique treatment needs.
Unique Training to Become a Pediatric Dentist
In order to become a pediatric dentist, the doctor must have four years of dental school followed by an additional two years of residency training in kids dentistry for infants, children, teens as well as children with special needs. This is unique training that no general or family dentist goes through.
Types of Treatments Provided by Most Pediatric Dentists
Oral exams for infants
Preventative dental care – cleaning and fluoride treatments
Oral heath nutrition and diet recommendations
Counseling advice related to habit that affect oral health (thumb sucking, pacifiers, etc.)
Cavity and other tooth defects repair
Care for dental injuries such as knocked out teeth, fractured teeth or displaced teeth
Primary Teeth Are Important for Your Kids
While your children’s primary teeth will eventually be replaced with permanent adult teeth, they are important for several reasons. Healthy eating, good speech habits, and clear pronunciation are just a few of the reasons. Establishing good oral health habits with primary teeth will lead into a lifetime of healthy permanent teeth.
