Pediatric Dentist Q & A
What is pediatric dentistry?
Pediatric dentists are committed to the oral health of children from birth to their late teens. The team at Hospitality Dental & Orthodontics oversees the various stages of your child’s teeth growth, including the good health of your child’s gums and mouth throughout childhood.
Because children start growing teeth when they’re 6 months old, the team urges you to establish care with a pediatric dentist as soon as possible.
Children are five times more likely to have infectious dental diseases. Proper and expert dental care guarantees that your child grows healthy permanent teeth, avoiding decay and illness along the way.
What types of treatments do pediatric dentists provide?
The team at Hospitality Dental & Orthodontics offers a variety of treatments for children, including:
- Infant oral exams
- Preventive dental care (cleanings and fluoride treatments)
- Counseling regarding habits like the use of pacifiers and thumb sucking
- Early teeth straightening assessment
- Management of an improper bite
- Oral conditions diagnosis
- Gum disease management
- Emergency dental care
When should your child first visit a dentist?
Pediatric dentists see children from birth to the age of 18. After that, your child will need to see a regular dentist.
How often should a child see the dentist?
The team at Hospitality Dental & Orthodontics recommends that your child come in at least twice a year. The same goes for adult patients.
Children with an increased risk of tooth decay and unusual growth patterns should schedule appointments more often.
A team member can explain the best appointment schedule for your child to avoid cavities, grow healthy teeth and strong enamel, and develop proper hygiene routines.
The early years of your child’s life are integral to prevent the development of many unwanted complications. The first step is to schedule an appointment with a pediatric dentist.
