Pediatric Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions
Pediatric dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the oral health of infants and children through adolescence. They have the experience and qualifications to care for patients ever changing gums, teeth, and jaw as their body develops.
Pediatric dentists complete an extra 2 years of training specific to infants, children, teenagers, and children with special needs. They are trained in tooth development, human physical development, and child behavior – which makes them proficient in treating children.
Dental care is a crucial part of your body’s overall health. Not only do routine dental checkups benefit your child’s oral health, but it also teaches children healthy dental habits moving forward.
Dentists recommend having your child’s first dental visit around 12 months old, or within 6 months of noticing the first tooth come in. We will do a ‘happy visit’ and take a look at the teeth, gums, jaw, and tissue to check growth and development.
Pediatric offices are made for children. The environment should be playful, fun, and have toys and books aimed at kids. This lets you know that the office is truly focused on kids and their particular needs. Pediatric dentists also have medical tools that are intended to work and fit in smaller mouths.
Play dentist! Grab your child’s toothbrush and have them sit in a chair – pretend you’re the doctor and brush and count their teeth with them. You can even have them practice on you and give them positive reinforcement. Let them know how important oral hygiene is. Books and videos about going to the dentist will also help put a positive spin on the experience to come!
Most insurance will cover preventative visits however we cannot guarantee payment from them. You can always double-check with your insurance prior to coming in for your child’s visit!
