Taking your child to a pediatric dentist is as important as taking him or her to the pediatrician. Although all of our dentists are adept at working with children, many of our College Park dental offices have one or more children’s dentists. A pediatric dentistry is a specialized field of general dentistry and a kid’s dentist has completed a minimum of two additional years of training in the field. They’re experts at putting both the patient and the parents at ease.
Our pediatric dentists will also provide the parents with pointers on how to establish healthy dental hygiene habits at an early age. Our dental group offices in College Park are dedicated to serving our young patients and their needs. Several other of our dental group offices have a children’s dentist on staff as well. Call our office in College Park today to schedule an appointment with a children’s dentist.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, parents should begin kids dental care visits as soon as they get their first tooth or as early as one year old. If the child has one tooth, it can develop a cavity. When the child has two adjacent teeth, they should start flossing so that a cavity doesn’t form between the two teeth.
Many children develop baby bottle tooth decay because they fall asleep with a bottle of milk or juice. The sugar in either of those substances can lead to decay and cavities. If the child falls asleep with a bottle or sippy cup in his or her mouth, it can hasten the onset of cavities, so don’t put your child to bed with either a bottle or a sippy cup. Call our office in College Park for more information on this.
During your initial visit to a children’s dentist in College Park, the dentist will check the jaw and teeth for possible misalignment or any other dental issues. This check can be performed with the child sitting in the dentist’s chair or while he or she is seated on the parent’s lap. If x-rays are needed, they’ll be taken but this usually isn’t the case.
We strive to provide the best dentistry for kids that we can. Some of the ways we keep your child’s healthy, beautiful smile include:
