4 Times When You Need To Take Your Child To A Pediatric Dentist

Pediatric dentistry is a sub-specialty of dentistry that gives your child the opportunity to be treated by a professional with specialized training in children’s oral health care. If your child trembles at the thought of meeting a dentist, consider taking them to a pediatric dentist.

1. When your child needs oral hygiene education

Children before their tweens are still learning about their oral health and what goes into maintaining a healthy smile. Most pediatric centers have an oral hygiene education and instruction program to help your child know the basics of a good oral hygiene routine and its importance.

2. To receive fluoride treatment

Fluoride is a commonly used preventive treatment for dental decay and cavities. The procedure involves direct application of a fluoride paste on your teeth using a small brush.

Your child may be advised not to drink or eat anything for around 30 minutes to one hour after the treatment has been completed.

3. When they need a tooth extracted

The invasiveness of tooth extraction may cause your child to dread the prospect of seeing a dentist. Pediatric dentists have the right training to know exactly what should be done to ease the tension in such situations.

4. When they need x-ray examination

Radiographs are part and parcel of pediatric dentistry. They can be used to develop orthodontic treatment plans, examine erupting teeth, diagnose bone disease, assess an injury etc.
