Regular dental cleanings, examinations, x-rays and caring for tooth decay- these are all important. But what sets a pediatric dentist apart when choosing the right dentist for your children? Why should you establish care with a pediatric dentist rather than a family practice dentist? The pediatric dentist receives an additional two to three years of specialized training after dental school, and is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years. Toddlers, children, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches in guiding their dental growth, their dental-care habits and teaching them how to best avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist is qualified to meet these needs at the specific stage of each child, catering their care specifically for where they are at developmentally.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) all recommend establishing a “Dental Home” for your child by one year of age. Children who have a dental home are more likely to receive appropriate preventive and routine oral health care. Choosing a Pediatric Dentist ensures receiving care that is tailored for the stage that your child is at in kid-friendly environment suitable to affirm that dental care is not scary and can be effortless.

Pediatric dentistry is an important part of your child’s development and health. While primary teeth will be replaced by permanent teeth, caring for them remains vital. Failure to restore tooth decay in a baby tooth can lead to nerve damage, cause an abscess and it can affect the developing permanent tooth. Once primary teeth have been replaced by permanent teeth, it remains crucial to create good oral hygiene habits and care for permanent teeth. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends visits every six months to the pediatric dentist beginning at your child’s first birthday. Routine visits will start your child on a a lifetime of good dental health. Whether your child needs routine cleaning, sealants, or treatment of tooth decay, a pediatric dentist is trained to care for your child using terms and methods that will make the process laid-back, calming and painless.
