In order to ensure your child has the best chance for healthcare success, they depend on you to make sure their mouth is cleaned and cared for properly. If you neglect their teeth and gums, they will surely suffer from issues associated with poor oral health. For additional help caring for the smiles of children, their pediatric dentists are available to assist them.

Pediatric dentists receive two to three years of additional training beyond dental school in order to ensure they can effectively provide treatments for young individuals. Pediatric dentists are also highly qualified and trained for providing oral health care to infants as well as individuals with special needs. Some of the main treatments that pediatric dentists can focus on include thumb-sucking, baby bottle tooth decay and teething

Pediatric dentists can apply several adult treatments to children safely and effectively. This includes orthodontic care, fluoride treatments, X-rays, and dental sealants. If you would like to bring your child in for their first oral health examination, make sure to do so before they are 1 year of age. This way, their pediatric dentists will be able to provide them with a comprehensive examination in time for adjustments to be made to ensure that their smile can continue to thrive as it grows in.
