Pediatric dentistry involves dental care that is given specifically to children. Here at Destination Dental Care, we are committed to providing high-quality care to babies, toddlers, children and teens who need preventative appointments as well as treatment options.
What is involved with Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is the field of dental work specific to kids. Each child is different when it comes to their dental needs. Some children simply need to come into the office for bi-annual preventative care appointments while others may need to come in for more extensive work or for orthodontic treatment. During a visit, your child will receive a thorough dental cleaning, tips and tricks on how to properly brush and floss their teeth and will have their teeth and gums checked to make sure there is no decay or damage. Dental x-rays could also be taken if the dentist feels that they are needed.
Why is it Important to Bring Kids to the Dentist?
It is advised that you bring your child into the office once you notice their teeth beginning to come in. After that, you can expect to bring your child in for routine bi-annual appointments as well as other appointments if they are needed. Some of the reasons it’s so important to bring your kids to the dentist include:
- Preventative care helps to diagnose problems before they get worse
- Pediatric dentistry is essential for teaching kids how to care for their teeth
- The dentist will be able to diagnose, treat and recommend procedures for kids
