WHAT IS PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY?

Pediatric dentistry is dental care for children. They have different oral health issues than their parents. This includes the development of baby teeth, the loss of baby teeth, and the care and attention required to guide the development of their adult teeth. Pediatric patients are at a higher risk for cavities because they tend to have ineffective oral health habits. This may include not flossing or not using their toothbrush properly to remove plaque and tartar from their teeth. Parents should be educated on how to care for their children’s teeth, as well as avoid issues such as bottle caries.
 

WHAT SERVICES ARE OFFERED IN PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY?

Many of the same procedures available for adults are available for children, with the addition of sealants and fluoride. They reduce the likelihood of cavities on the baby teeth as well as adult teeth for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Children also require x-rays and examinations to check the health of their developing smiles.
