Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry

Did you know children don't need to go to regular dentists? But we have pediatric dentistry specialists to take good care of your kid's oral health. So next time, when you need to schedule a consultation with a dentist for your little one, make sure you go to the pediatric dentistry clinic only.

Just like adults, children need proper oral and dental care to keep oral diseases or complications at bay. Children often develop cavities or go through childhood dental decay. So they need to consult with the dentist regularly and maintain their dental health on track.

Who is a Pediatric Dentist?

What makes pediatric dentist different from is the fact that the pediatric dentist monitors the oral health of children. Pediatric dentistry specialists take care of the oral health of infants until they reach their teen years. Pediatric dentistry involves an examination of teeth, gums, and mouth throughout childhood. 

Infants begin to get baby teeth and lose them as they turn 6 or 7 years. Their baby teeth replaced by permanent teeth, but if you don't pay attention to their dental health, they might face complications like oral decay.

Did you know an infectious disease – childhood dental caries is common in children? So when you visit your pediatric dentist regularly, you can detect and treat such infections before they start to affect the oral and dental health of your child. 

How to become a pediatric dentist?

A pediatric dentist completes and acquires the following:

  • Four years of education from a dental school
  • Additional two-year residency training in infants, children and teens dentistry
  • Residency training also includes training for children with special needs.

Types of Treatments

Pediatric dentistry specialists provide comprehensive oral care to children, including:

  • Oral health exams of infants
  • Cleaning and fluoride treatments along with preventive dental care
  • Recommend nutrition and diet options
  • Provide habit counseling
  • Early assessment and treatment for orthodontics
  • Treatment to straighten teeth
  • Treat tooth cavities or other defects.
  • Gum disease prevention and treatment for conditions like ulcers and short frenulum
  • Pediatric dentists provide dental injury care such as fractured or broken teeth

No doubt, the dental health of children is as essential as it is for adults. Children also go through dental complications that only pediatric dentistry specialists can treat and heal.
