Pediatric Dentistry

Teaching your kids the right way to take care of their smile is very important. Many dentists recommend starting early to give your children plenty of time to develop good oral hygiene habits to keep their teeth clean & cavity-free at a time in life when they should be able to focus on growing & learning.

Making Kids Comfortable With Dentistry:

Children have unique needs and sensitivities when it comes to dental care. Dental professionals with experience in pediatric dentistry can make the dental experience more comfortable and positive for children. Building a positive relationship with the dentist at a young age helps children feel at ease during dental visits and encourages the development of good dental habits.

Orthodontic Treatment Stages:

Orthodontic treatment for children can be divided into several stages:

  • Early Treatment: This stage, typically for ages 2 to 6, addresses underdeveloped dental arches, premature loss of primary teeth, and habits like thumb-sucking. Early intervention can often eliminate the need for extensive orthodontic treatment in the future.
  • Mixed Dentition: Covering ages 6 to 12, this stage deals with the eruption of permanent front teeth (incisors) and 6-year molars. It addresses jaw misalignment and dental realignment issues.
  • Adolescent Dentition: This stage focuses on permanent teeth and the development of the final bite relationship.

Each of these stages is important in ensuring proper dental development and oral health in children. If you have any questions or concerns about your child's dental care or orthodontic needs, do not hesitate to contact a dental professional for guidance and assistance.
