Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

What is a pediatric dentist?

Pediatric dentists are uniquely trained to provide high-quality oral health care to children tailored to their specific needs. They’ve completed additional training that qualifies them to address the oral health issues of kids. What does that mean exactly? Well, pediatric dentists are skilled at using smaller dental instruments that are designed for a child’s mouth. They also better comprehend the concept and details of baby teeth in a growing child.

They emphasize education. Pediatric dentists work closely with parents to help make sure your household is a dental hygiene-conscious one. They work with you to employ habits and teaching methods that promote preventive care for children. That means teaching proper brushing, flossing, and nutrition.  

What types of services do pediatric dentists provide?

Pediatric dentists at Hometown Family Dental Centers offer children a wide range of oral health care services. These include:

  • Risk assessments (for orthodontics and more)
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Habit counseling (pacifier use, thumb sucking)
  • Cavity repair
  • Management of gum disease
  • Care for dental injuries or trauma

Why is pediatric dentistry important?

Pediatric dentistry is important because getting your child the right care from an early age dictates what type of oral hygiene they’ll have going forward. A childhood plagued by cavities and other oral health concerns can be foreboding. A pediatric dentist helps you, as a parent, teach your child how and why it’s so important to care for your teeth and gums.

Also, pediatric dentists are uniquely trained to provide care to children with behavioral issues. It’s often difficult to find a qualified, capable dentist who can alleviate dental fear and anxiety in certain children.

At Hometown Family Dental Centers, the pediatric dentists work with patients three-years-old and up. They’re warm, friendly and put them at ease in the dentist’s chair. The environment is warm, welcoming, and many aspects of their dental care are presented as games and fun challenges.
