A Pediatric Dentist Defined
Pediatric dentists focus on providing specialized dental care to children and teenagers. Children and teenagers grow, change, and go through many stages of development before they turn 18. For this reason, children’s dentistry focuses on specifically supporting young patients’ dental health. Childhood is a prime time to establish excellent oral health habits and techniques. Many parents take their children to a dentist’s office that focuses on children’s dentistry to instill the importance of proper dental health.
The Benefits of Children’s Dentistry
- Relaxed, Happy Kids: Once again, even adults dislike stepping foot inside a dentist’s office. When kids don’t know what to expect from a dentist’s appointment, this can be stressful for some of them. Fortunately, pediatric dentists have the expertise to address concerns that young patients may have. Here, we can ensure that your children are comfortable.
- Understanding How a Child Grows and Changes: From birth until age 18, the jaw shifts quite a lot. Because so much happens very quickly, a pediatric dentist can give your child the best treatment and care to accomodate for these changes. We’ll do all that we can to ensure your child has a healthy smile throughout each of these stages. Also, your child never has to leave us. We take care of patients of all ages. We call ourselves a family dentist for a reason!
- Oral Health Issues Caught Early: If your child has habits such as thumb sucking and teeth grinding, we can help you and your child develop creative solutions to help address these issues. The main takeaway is that the sooner a child develops healthy habits, the better.
