What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry involves any procedure that is specific to children and teens. Pediatric dentistry helps your child to feel more comfortable while having dental work done in our office. We want your child to have a fun, informative visit with us and this is why we offer many different types of dental options. It is important that your child come to visit us twice a year as part of their preventative care routine.
Why would your child need Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is specifically geared towards children. This means that we use kid-friendly terminology as well as kid-specific procedures that benefit your child’s dental health. Our goal is to improve your child’s smile and get them feeling confident about the way that they look. We offer orthodontic options for teens who require braces because of crowded or crooked teeth.
What makes your child a good candidate for Pediatric Dentistry?
It’s important to bring your child to the dentist twice a year for pediatric care. In fact, we recommend first bringing your child in when you start to notice their first baby teeth coming up through the gums. It’s never too late to get your child on a routine care schedule so that it benefits their dental health. We offer preventative procedures along with corrective and restorative care.
What can you expect with Pediatric Dentistry?
Your child will first visit us for an exam and cleaning. The cleaning helps to get rid of hardened plaque from your child’s teeth and looks for signs of gingivitis. Our doctor will then come in and perform the examination. The exam checks for tooth decay as well as tooth development and growth. We will give recommendations as needed during both the cleaning and exam. Your child will be scheduled for any additional work, where we offer many different kid-specific options that you can choose from.
