Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
Every child goes through several phases in their dental health that are unique to every patient. A pediatric dentist is specially trained to care for the unique needs of children throughout each of these phases, from preparing for their first baby teeth to the eruption of permanent teeth.
Each child has their own specific dental and behavioral needs that are simply different than those of adults. This may include sealants, fluoride applications, specific at-home instructions, or direct education in oral hygiene. It is our focus to provide our patients and their parents the tools they need to prevent unnecessary dental decay, unnecessary dental work, and a cavity-free future.
Preventive Oral Hygiene
The best way to treat cavities and decay is to prevent their initial development. Preventive dentistry includes education on proper brushing, flossing, eating habits, maintaining good fluoride levels, and applying sealants. Our fun, friendly environment aims to make dental education fun and effective!
When decay does occur, we’re well equipped to address the issue before it progresses. Regular exams will allow us to identify signs of tooth decay and address it with a resin filling before further damages occur. Restorative dentistry also includes crowns, and addressing nursing bottle decay. We’re committed to discussing all available options with you should restorative care be necessary.
Growth & Development & Braces
Caring for your child’s baby teeth is a vital step in ensuring the safe and healthy eruption of their permanent teeth as they grow older. We’re here to monitor tooth development every step of the way, only intervening when necessary. Pediatric Dentists evaluate the occlusion or “bite” of the child at each recare visit and will refer to the orthodontic specialist as needed.
