Pediatric dentistry is a specialty area of dentistry that focuses on the dental and oral health development and needs of young children and adolescents. Pediatric dentists complete specialized training so they are best equipped to work with children who may not be able to communicate their concerns or needs clearly.
Children may also experience higher levels of anxiety about dental visits and pediatric dentists are trained to help their patients feel comfortable and confident in the chair.
In addition to teaching children good oral hygiene practices, pediatric dentists need to assess the development of your child’s teeth and jaw. This may include the age when their adult teeth begin to erupt as well as their alignment or bite. You pediatric dentist will let you know if it is likely that your child will need orthodontic treatment and will keep you informed of your child’s dental health and development.
Your children should start to see the dentist around the time that their first teeth erupt, usually around 12 months. It’s important for your dentist to monitor your child’s dental development so that if there are any issues, they can be addressed as early as possible.
Children are not miniature adults. They have different needs and go through several stages of development. A pediatric dentist is trained to help children learn to take care of their teeth while monitoring the child’s development. Pediatric dentists also are experienced in working with children to make sure they are confident in the dentist’s chair and develop good oral hygiene habits to last throughout their lives.
They offer a gentle, but thorough service ensuring the comfort and security of your child for the duration of their checkup and cleaning. They’ll teach your child about their teeth and why it’s important to take care of them.
