Pediatric DentistWhat is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is a specialized division of dentistry that concentrates on the oral health care of babies, kids and teenagers, including those with particular healthcare requirements. It encompasses various dental treatments and preventive care that cater specifically for the different dental needs and issues confronting younger patients.

Major Aspects of Pediatric Dentistry

Specialized Training

Pediatric dentists undergo extra training after their dental schools to specialize in children’s dental treatment. This qualification includes understanding child psychology, growth and development, which allows them to provide comforting and efficient care for young ones. They are experienced at handling children’s behavior so as to make it less scary and more pleasant during the visit.

Child-Friendly Environment

Typically, pediatric dental offices are designed to be inviting for children. This involves playful decorations with colorful walls, toys or games depending on age group; this helps in reducing anxiety levels among kids making them enjoy visiting the dentist more.

Pediatric DentistTreatment of Dental Issues

Pediatric dentists manage a wide array of dental conditions affecting children such as:

Cavities and Tooth Decay

Supplying fillings plus crowns that reinstate damaged teeth.

Pulp Therapy

A treatment aimed at saving severely decayed or infected tooth often called ‘baby root canal.’

Dental Injuries

Fixing chipped, fractured or knocked-out teeth.

Orthodontic Care

Checking up on the progress of a child’s jawline and then referring him/her if there is need for braces or any other corrective action by the orthodontist.

Behavioral Management Techniques

Pediatric dentists use different techniques to manage children’s behavior so as they feel comfortable and cooperative during dental visits. Following are some of them:

Tell-Show-Do

Describing the procedure in simple language, showing them the instruments to be used then performing.

Positive Reinforcement

Praising or giving out small gifts to encourage good conduct.

Distraction

Offering toys, music or videos for amusement while carrying out treatments especially with regard to children.

Types of Sedation Dentistry We Offer

Oral Sedation

This is mixed up as liquid or given as a pill; it helps keep your child comfortable and calm throughout. Children under this sedation type still remain awake but they are deeply relaxed.
