Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

What is pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry provides safe and effective treatments for children needing check-up or generalized care. Children often go through the stages of growing new teeth and replacing baby teeth. Pediatric dentistry ensures a smooth transition into adult teeth while monitoring overall oral health.

Going to the dentist is a new and potentially scary adventure for children. Providers specializing in pediatric dentistry understand children’s unique needs and comforts, aiming to make a pleasant experience. Special tools designed for children help make the experience more enjoyable.


What services does pediatric dentistry include?

Pediatric dentistry provides several similar procedures seen in general dentistry, such as:

  • Oral exams
  • General teeth cleanings
  • Cavity treatment
  • Gum health management
  • Injury-related care

Many services require modifications to ensure safe and effective treatment for children. Examples include monitoring fluoride contents and anesthetic amounts, should they be required. Additionally, the provider may suggest diet and lifestyle modifications to aid in the development of healthy teeth. 


Why is pediatric dentistry important?

Pediatric dentistry services help detect early signs of both oral and non-oral structural abnormalities or disease. Early detection of improper alignment allows the dental team to make safe and effective recommendations in subsequent visits. Furthermore, abnormal oral health indicators help provide early diagnoses for associated conditions, such as diabetes and asthma. 


What should you know before a pediatric dentistry visit?

It’s best to talk with your child about the services they can expect during a visit to create security and reduce anxiety. You can even find children’s books to read to them about their first time at the dentist. This will make the initial and subsequent visits easy and pleasurable for you and your child. Additionally, explaining the importance of dental visits helps develop healthy lifestyle habits, such as brushing one’s teeth.


What are the risks of pediatric dentistry?

The team at Diamond Dental takes extra precautions in considering and treating children. Many children can be sensitive during dental and other health-related care. Children may experience mild discomfort during regularly scheduled cleanings. Additionally, occasional spotting of the gums occurs if the gum tissue is not used to flossing.
