A pediatric dentist is trained in providing care and assistance for the youngest of patients. Dr. Christopher Lim evaluates the little ones to check for proper development of the teeth. It is essential to monitor children closely as they lose their baby teeth and begin to see their adult teeth come into place. He wants to make sure that as the teeth develop, they do not cause overcrowding or poor bite alignment. There may be teeth that become impacted because there is not enough room. It can also be a great time to assess the need for intervention such as orthodontic work to keep the bite and teeth aligned properly.
Additionally, there are services provided to children such as the placement of sealants, which can help in preventing cavities. Sealants are used to cover the chewing surfaces of the molars to help children keep their smile free from dental caries. Dr. Christopher Lim can assess the smile and the capabilities of the child to brush and floss and determine if sealants should be placed. Sealants can help in areas where it may be difficult for child to remove plaque and food particles.
