Pediatric dentistry is dentistry designed for children younger than 18 years of age, as well as patients with special needs. Dentists who specialize in pediatric dentistry advocate for and promote good oral health care for children. The idea is to make the appointment fun while still treating and preventing oral health issues.
Pediatric dentistry is crucial because it prevents dental diseases from developing at a young age. Common dental issues in pediatric patients are plaque, gum disease, and cavities. These can lead to major oral issues later in life, which is why it's important to start preventing these issues now. The primary concern with pediatric dentistry is to ensure that a child’s primary teeth remain healthy and free of decay so that the adult teeth move into a healthy position once the baby teeth fall out.
At Today's Dental, our dentists offer a wide variety of services to our pediatric patients. These services are used to protect the primary teeth or baby teeth as well as help build good oral maintenance routines to create healthy habits that they will use into adulthood. These services include:
There are many other services offered for pediatric patients depending on the issue at hand. Your dentist will guide in the right direction to treat any issues they may find.
