Find the Right Pediatric Dentist for Your Child

dca-blog_article-50_find-best-pediatric-dentist

A pediatric dentist provides advanced dental and oral health care for children of all ages. A family dentist can also treat kids, but a pediatric specialist has experience and training that enables him or her to focus on the specific developmental stages and oral care needs of younger patients. If your child has a chronic illness or suffers from developmental problems, seizures, or behavioral disorders, a pediatric dentist is better prepared to deal with his or her specific needs.

When you find a pediatric dentist, your child will get the latest treatments and age-appropriate care that makes office visits more productive and pleasant. Following are the services that a kids’ dentist provides:

  • Oral, inhaled, and injectable methods of sedation and anesthesia
  • Management of teething problems
  • Application of dental sealants
  • Preventative dental care and risk assessment
  • Routine oral health exams and professional cleanings
  • Diagnosis and treatment of tooth and oral developmental problems
  • Orthodontic evaluation
  • Mouth guards
  • Treatment of cavities
  • Treatment of dental injuries
  • Behavioral counseling for thumb-sucking and other common habits
  • Treatment of mouth conditions related to developmental disorders or chronic illnesses such as diabetes and asthma
  • Management of periodontal disease
