Dental Specialists Children´s (Pediatric) Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is the maintenance and treatment provided to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years.

Prevention is better than cure. Dental health care for children is important to maintain the primary or milk teeth from decay and cavities.

What is the right age to get kid’s dental check up done?

Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. And by the age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by secondary, permanent teeth. It is advisable for the first dental visit to take place by the first 6 months of the milk teeth eruption (by the child’s first birthday). Early dental visits will help in preventing decay, monitor the development of the permanent teeth.

Is it necessary to treat the diseased milk teeth?

Although baby teeth are eventually replaced with permanent teeth, healthy baby teeth are fundamental to the overall health and development of the child. Without proper dental care, children face possible oral decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. By continuously tracking growth and development, dentists are able to anticipate dental issues and quickly intervene before they worsen. Also, working towards earlier corrective treatment preserves the child’s milk teeth as well as the replacing permanent teeth .

Are you worried about your child cooperating for the dental visit ?

We at our center provide an enjoyable and exciting experience that will encourage children to come back for their routine checkup.

The first visit to our center allows us to go over procedures with parents, discuss proper ways of maintaining dental hygiene for children, and perform a short examination that introduces children to professional dental care. We also prepare children and parents for their next phase of dental care through supplying valuable education tools and encouraging the development of proper dental hygiene habits.

The initial visit also serves as a dedicated time for parents to ask our dental professional questions about oral habits that may be harmful to the growth of their child’s teeth, such as with discussing the dangers of thumb sucking or falling asleep with a baby bottle.

During the time of procedure we treat kids with at most care and concern allowing them to understand the importance of the treatment in their terms and to their knowledge.
