Pediatric Dentistry

What is pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is focused on the oral health of infants and adolescents. Children have different dental needs that adults do, and for a child, a trip to the dentist can be a scary experience. 

Dental phobias tend to develop at a young age, and often come about as a result of bad experiences early on, making it especially important for your child to receive knowledgeable and specialized care at the dentist.

Why should I visit a pediatric dentist?

There are numerous benefits from entrusting your child’s dental care to a professional specialist, including:

Specialized care

A pediatric dentist can provide specialized care for your child’s unique needs, such as teething issues and losing baby teeth. And seeing the same dentist consistently throughout your child’s life allows for a continuity of care that ensures better treatment. 

Compassion

A pediatric dentist has spent more time working with children, and is used to being more gentle and taking greater care in their procedures. 

Patience

A pediatric dentist is tuned in to your child’s psychology, and is better equipped to deal with their dental fear and anxiety. They have more tools at their disposal to put your child at ease in the chair, and are more familiar with the amount of time and energy it might take to make your child relaxed. 

When should my child start seeing a dentist?

Your child should start seeing a dentist as soon as possible, which means as soon as they get their first tooth! 

There are a few advantages to starting dental care at an early age. It gives your child a head start in establishing a healthy and comfortable relationship with their dentist. It also gives them the opportunity to learn about good oral hygiene and develop stronger and healthier habits that will carry on into adulthood. And starting dental care early allows your dentist to start tracking any suspicious conditions that would benefit from early intervention.

Your child’s first few appointments will typically consist of little more than a basic exam. This gives their dentist the opportunity to get to know your child and to begin monitoring their oral health.
