Pediatric Dentistry An Overview
We are committed to providing high-quality dentistry for the whole family. Pediatric dentistry focuses on the dental health of children. We see children starting at 2 years of age through adulthood. We do see children younger than 2 years of age for emergency care.
Importance of Children’s Dentistry
The oral health of children is extremely important. Establishing a good oral health and preventive care routine creates good habits that will carry into adulthood. Children’s dental care is different from adult dental care. Pediatric dentistry has a unique set of challenges. A dentist must be experienced and well trained to examine and treat children, to identify problems and make children feel comfortable.
Why Primary Teeth (Baby Teeth) Are Important:
- Contribute to good nutrition by allowing children to chew properly
- Aid in speech development
- Lay a foundation for permanent teeth
- Instrumental in establishing good self-esteem
