What Is A Pediatric Dentist?

A pediatric dentist, defined, is a specially trained dentist who focuses on caring for children from infancy through the teenage years. This treatment can include the prevention and treatment of diseases of the mouth, teeth and gums as well as early intervention during the growth of teeth to prevent extensive problems in the future. Pediatric dentists have completed four years of dental school after their undergraduate program, plus a minimum of two years of dental training for patients from infancy to late teens. At your child's pediatric dental exam, the dentist may perform any of the following procedures needed:
•  Comprehensive dental exams including providing you, the parents, important information to keep your child's teeth healthy and strong. A complete exam includes cleaning, fluoride treatments, helpful nutrition information and habit counseling.
•  Sealants may be recommended and applied for added protection for your child's teeth.
•  If cavities (tooth decay) are present, your pediatric dentist will recommend a course of treatment — fillings, crowns, extractions, and space maintainers as needed.
•  The dentist will utilize exams and x-rays to determine any possible need for orthodontic procedures.
•  The treatment of dental emergencies like broken, lost or damaged teeth.
•  The diagnosis and treatment of pediatric gum disease, which is also a specialty of your pediatric dentist.

The early and appropriate dental care by a provided by a pediatric dentist can help prevent problems related to oral health later in your child's life.
