Pediatric Dentist Q & A
What is pediatric dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is a dental specialty that is specific to children’s oral health. Pediatric dentistry focuses on dental work for children but also takes into account each child’s needs and relationship with dental anxiety.
Just the prospect of a visit to the dentist can make a child fearful. The team at Supertooth™ knows it’s critical to make their experience as comfortable and uncomplicated as possible.
It’s important to keep up on your child’s oral health throughout their young years. Finding a dentist that your child enjoys will make it much easier for both of you. The team at Supertooth™ works exceptionally well with child patients.
When should I take my child to see a pediatric dentist?
You should begin bringing your child into Supertooth™ as soon as their first tooth breaks through, often before age one. From then on, your child should come in for checkups every six months to ensure their teeth are developing and staying healthy.
The team will let you know if your child needs more frequent appointments or if any dental work beyond cleanings becomes necessary.
What can pediatric dentists do?
The team at Supertooth™ can perform a variety of dental procedures that help keep your child’s mouth healthy. They utilize procedures, such as:
- Oral health exams
- Injury treatment
- Oral disease management
They can also assess your child’s diet and habits and make suggestions for changes to promote oral health and development. If you have any questions about your child’s teeth, the team is there to help.
What are the benefits of pediatric dentistry?
There are several benefits of taking your child to a pediatric dentist, including:
- Preventing disease and decay
- Ensuring normal teeth development
- Limiting bad oral habits
- Keeping your child comfortable at the dentist
When it comes to dentistry, children have different needs than adults. Pediatric dentists are trained to work with children, making sure that their needs are met and that a trip to the dentist isn’t scary or stressful.
