Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

What is a pediatric dentist?

Pediatric dentists are uniquely trained to provide high-quality oral health care to children. They’ve completed additional training that qualifies them to address the oral health dealings of kids.

What does that mean exactly? Well, pediatric dentists are skilled at using smaller dental instruments that are designed for a child’s mouth. They also better understand the concept and details of baby teeth in a growing child.

Pediatric dentists also promote education and work closely with parents to help make sure your household is a dental hygiene-conscious one. They work with you to form habits and teaching methods that promote preventive care in children. That means teaching proper brushing, flossing, and nutrition.

What types of services do pediatric dentists provide?

Pediatric dentists at Kluth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offer children a wide range of oral health care services. These include:

  • Risk assessments
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Infant oral health exams
  • Habit counseling (pacifier use, thumb sucking, etc.)
  • Cavity repair
  • Management of gum disease
  • Care of dental injuries or trauma

Why is pediatric dentistry important?

Pediatric dentistry is important because getting your child the right care from an early age determines what type of oral hygiene habits they’ll develop going forward.

A childhood plagued by cavities and other oral health concerns can be foreboding. A pediatric dentist can help you, as a parent, teach your child how and why it’s so important for them to care for their teeth and gums.

Also, pediatric dentists are uniquely trained to provide care to children with behavioral issues. It’s often difficult to find a qualified, capable dentist who can alleviate dental fear and anxiety in kids.

At Kluth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, the pediatric dentists are warm, friendly, and put children at ease in the dentist’s chair. The environment is warm, welcoming, and many aspects of their dental care are presented as games and fun challenges.
