Reasons to Find a Pediatric Dentist
Become comfortable with your dentist. Children need routine to be comfortable with certain things. If they start seeing their dentist from the time that they’re very young, they’ll be accustomed to that dentist and feel comfortable sitting in the dentist’s chair for regular cleanings and more. As they get older, fear of the dentist is less likely to occur. Most fears start in childhood, so it’s best to quell the fear before it ever starts.
Your dentist will know your children’s dental history. Starting with a dentist and continuing to see them for life means that your dentist will know your child’s entire dental history. This is important, especially if your child eventually needs braces or needs advising when his or her adult teeth come in. Your family dentist will know what your child needs to do going into adulthood and can follow through with a course of treatment from about 6 months old all the way through your child’s life.
The dentist knows how to work with children. This is by far and away the most important point that we can make. Working with children isn’t like working with adults, physically or psychologically. Children have different needs when they’re in the chair than adults do. We take into account age, personality, and oral health whenever we see your child. We like to take the time to meet and get to know him or her so we can make their time in the dentist’s office comfortable and pleasant!
