Why is pediatric dental care so important?

Some may wonder why children need dental care when their primary teeth fall out anyway. During their primary years, children gain and lose primary teeth, and the state of their dental health has far-reaching consequences.

Poor Dental Health- It Hurts

The set of baby teeth is also prone to decay, sensitivity, infection, and gum disease. As a parent, you must keep a keen eye on your child’s eating patterns and behavior. If you notice your child chewing food only from one side of their mouth, they may be trying to cope with dental pain or sensitivity.

Baby Teeth Set the Stage For Adult Teeth

By the age of six, baby teeth loosen and fall out. The root of these teeth gets resorted, and the space left behind serves as a guide for the eruption of adult teeth. Premature extraction of a baby tooth can result in problems such as unexpected crowding or crooked adult teeth. Maintaining strong, healthy baby teeth as well as healthy, supportive gums provides the best foundation for adult teeth.

A Full Set Teeth- Cornerstone of Confidence

A healthy set of teeth is essential when interacting with people through social skills and expressions. Dental complications, pain, or sensitivity will influence how they express themselves and how their peers perceive them.

Growing Up Requires Healthy Eating Habits

A wide variety of foods is essential for your child’s optimum growth and development. However, it can be challenging for the parents of picky eaters. If your child is avoiding crunchy or chewy foods, that’s because they are experiencing pain or discomfort while chewing. And due to this problem, children may develop the habit of eating only on one side, or they might not want to eat at all.

The first appointment always matters

Children are not always patient and are not able to cooperate during dental check-ups. However, our pediatric dentists understand how to examine and treat them, which makes them feel at ease. In addition, our pediatric dentists use special equipment in the dental offices that are designed with child psychology in mind.

Tell, Show and Do

Some children are daring explorers with a million questions. Others are shy, cautious, or even anxious about new experiences. We want all children to feel safe and engaged, as well as optimistic, about their first-time visits to the dentist. A conversation in kid-friendly terms is the best way to meet their emotional needs. We’d like to start each appointment by listening to their thoughts and concerns, then explaining what we plan to do during the appointment and answering any questions they might have.

Gentle Examination

Our experts do a gentle examination of your child’s gums, tongue, teeth, and overall health. During the dental examination, we keep a keen eye on the progress of your child’s baby and adult teeth.

Keeping You in The Loop

Following an examination, we will provide advice to both the young patient and their parent or guardian. We provide extra tips and tricks for brushing those hard-to-reach spots at home.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is meant by pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dentists are committed to the oral health of children from infancy to adolescence. They have the knowledge, training, and experience to care for a child's teeth, gums, tongue, cheek, and mouth at all stages of development.

Understanding the difference between a dentist and a pediatric dentist

Pediatric dental care can achieve optimum oral health care from the first appointment itself. We are happy to support these little patients as they discover their new teeth, lose baby teeth, grow adult teeth, and for other commonly shared experiences like getting a filling (which isn't so scary after all!) or opting for orthodontics as adults.

What are the benefits of a visit to a pediatric dentist?

By the age of three, most children have all of their baby teeth erupted into their mouths. This first set of teeth begins to fall out by about the age of six, and except for wisdom teeth, most children have all of their adult teeth by their early twenties.

Without proper dental care, children are at risk of developing oral disease and decay, which can cause them to experience pain and complications for the rest of their lives.
