We all need the help of dentists to keep our teeth healthy and smiles happy. Your children deserve the specialized care of a dentist with experience in pediatric/adolescent growth and development, disease prevention, child psychology and specialized techniques to care for their young teeth.
A key role of a Pediatric Dentist is to help prevent tooth decay. Studies show that poor oral health in children can lead to impaired school performance and poor social relationships. Pediatric Dentists give advice on how to make your child’s teeth strong and the importance of healthy eating and other habits to prevent disease.
Also, Pediatric Dentists work to maintain your child’s “Baby Teeth” until they fall out naturally. The primary teeth are important for chewing, maintaining good nutrition, speech development and keeping appropriate space for the eventual permanent teeth.
Becoming a certified Pediatric Dentist requires an additional two to three years of post-doctoral dental training—after earning a dental degree. Pediatric Dentistry focuses on establishing trust and confidence between the young patients and their dentist. A key component to pediatric training is in child psychology.
