What is a Pediatric Dentist?

A pediatric dentist is one who is fully committed to the oral hygiene and health of children from infancy right up until their teen years.

The pediatric dentist has extensive qualifications and experience to care correctly for your child’s mouth, gums, and teeth throughout the many stages of one’s childhood. A child first begins growing their baby teeth within the first six months of their lives.

But at the age of six or seven, they start losing their preliminary sets of teeth, which will eventually be replaced by permanent teeth. If a child is not given the right dental care, they may face potential decay or diseases that can lead to lifelong complications and pain. It can be quite common for children to carry infectious oral diseases so it is important to bring your child to the dentist regularly.

Types of treatments provided by pediatric dentists

  • Oral health examinations for infants, including assessments for risks carried in both mother and child
  • Dental care focused on preventative measures, including fluoride treatments, cleaning, and thorough nutritional diet monitoring
  • Counselling for habits, such as using a pacifier or thumb-sucking
  • Thorough care for any dental injuries that come with being a rough-and-tumble kid

At Perfect Smiles Dental of Pleasant Hill, we recognize that children are far more than merely pre-grown adults.

They aren’t always patient nor cooperative during examinations, thus our pediatric dentists are skilled and adept at treating kids in comfortable manners that allow them to feel at ease with the process.

Additionally, pediatric dentists utilize the latest and specially designed dental equipment that are built and decorated with kids in mind. Our pediatric dentists are adept at offering a vast array of options for treatment, as well as expert guidance and training to help set your child on the right path to healthy gums, teeth, and general oral hygiene.
