A dentist specializing in working with children and teens of all ages is a pediatric dentist. They are dedicated to looking after kids' oral health and providing them with good oral hygiene. Pediatric experts here specialize in providing your children with the best care.
When to Consult a Pediatric Dentist?
Babies start to get their first teeth from 6 months of age and proceed to grow more teeth till their late teens or early adult life (the last being the wisdom teeth). By 6 or 7 years, they start to lose those milk teeth and grow permanent ones. Without proper dental checkups, these permanent teeth may become problematic and pose a possible threat to their oral health later on in the future.
A pediatric dentist takes care of such problems from an early stage and helps in reducing them. Our dental professionals provide preventive, restorative, orthodontic, and cosmetic care as per your children’s needs.
What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is a field of medical science that focuses on providing oral care specifically to children and teens. Our dental team has specialized in this field and provides a relaxed environment, optimum for children as well as parents. Our latest technology helps give the best treatment to your children with the utmost care.
When Should You Bring Your Children for Their First Checkup?
When the first milk teeth of your kid start to appear, that is the ideal time to bring them for their first examination. The dentist can then ensure whether the path of growth of the teeth is correct and clean their mouth also. It is then advised to go for regular checkups every six months to maintain progress.
