What Is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry specializes in the oral health care of infants, children, and adolescents, including those with special health care needs. This branch of dentistry focuses not only on the treatment but also on the prevention and education of dental issues in young patients. Our providers are trained to address the physical and psychological needs of children, making dental visits a positive experience.

The Role Of Primary Teeth

Often termed baby teeth, primary teeth are fundamental to a child’s developmental stages. They aid in speech production and chewing and reserve space for the eruption of permanent teeth. The care of primary teeth is essential to deter decay and secure the health of growing permanent teeth.

The Importance Of Pediatric Dental Care

Early dental care holds importance for various reasons:

  • Preventing dental problems: Routine examinations aid in the early detection of issues, averting more severe complications down the line.
  • Educating families: Our dentists offer invaluable insights into appropriate oral hygiene practices for children.
  • Cultivating good habits: Early dental visits encourage the establishment of positive oral health habits that endure into adulthood.
  • Ensuring proper development: Monitoring the growth and development of jaws and teeth can prevent and rectify potential issues.

Your Child's First Visit

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises that a child’s first dental appointment should take place by their first birthday. This visit primarily focuses on familiarizing your child with the dental setting, assessing their oral health, and equipping parents with tips for their child’s dental care.

Tips For Preventing Decay

Tooth decay prevention is a crucial element of pediatric dental care. Below, you will find strategies to maintain your child’s dental health:

  • Regular brushing and flossing: Encourage your child to brush twice daily and floss regularly.
  • Healthy eating habits: Minimize sugary snacks and beverages and promote a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and calcium.
  • Fluoride utilization: Fluoride fortifies enamel and aids in decay prevention. Employ fluoride toothpaste and consider fluoride treatments as recommended.
  • Dental sealants: Sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth, where decay often begins.
