Why You Should Visit a Pediatric Dentist

Many families with young children often seek the help of age-based specialists to attend to the different needs of their kids. While pediatricians can attend to all the healthcare needs of your child, pediatric dentists can help your child achieve and maintain a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.

At Pediatric Dental Center, we provide dentistry services specifically tailored for the unique dental and oral needs of children. Our pediatric services range from disease prevention to dental treatment services for children under the age of 18 years. We realize that children can be difficult patients to deal with: they are not always patient and cooperative during dental visits, and may feel anxious and fearful if their care is not handled properly.

In addition to our kid-friendly environment and friendly and empathetic team, Dr. Corina Ramirez knows how best to treat your child and make him or her calm and comfortable on the dentist’s chair. This mixture creates the ideal setting for your child to receive the necessary dental care, whether it’s a routine exam, teeth cleaning, or other dental procedure.

The treatments we provide

We have the training and expertise to provide comprehensive oral health care for our young patients, including:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of teeth, gums, and mouth-related problems
  • Habit counseling – such as thumb sucking and the use of pacifiers
  • Infant oral health exams – include risk evaluation for caries in the child and mother
  • Preventive dental care – such as the use of sealants, cleaning and fluoride supplementation, and diet/nutrition recommendations
  • Early assessment for improper bite and the need for orthodontics for teeth straightening
  • Care of dental injuries – such as fractured, knocked-out, or displaced teeth
  • Diagnosis of oral problems linked to other health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hyperactivity disorder (attention deficit), hay fever, and asthma
  • Periodontal health management – pediatric gum disease, ulcers, mucoceles, or short frenulum

Contact us today

Our primary goal is to steer children and adolescents on the right path to optimal dental health and oral hygiene. In addition to performing routine dental checkups and professional cleanings, we educate our young patients about proper brushing and flossing techniques and other ways to maintain the optimal health of their teeth, gums, and mouth.

We believe that our pediatric dentistry services prepare children for a lifetime of exceptional dental health and an impeccable smile. Please contact Dreamland Dental & Orthodontics to schedule an appointment with our pediatric dentist.

3 Key Factors for Your Kid’s First Dental Visit

Parents want only the best dental care for their children. According to the AAPD – American Association of Pediatric Dentistry – guidelines, children should visit the dentist within six months after the first tooth erupts, or before the first birthday.

When the time comes, you can choose to take your child to either a pediatric dental office or a family dentist who provides dental services for people of all ages. Either way, it’s important that you choose a dental environment where you believe your child can learn healthy habits that will last throughout their lives.

Here are some other things to keep in mind:

Choose a Kid-friendly Dental Environment

Pediatric dental practices that see infants, toddlers, and older children are custom-made to help children relax. Children need a safe, fun, and comfortable environment where they can learn about good oral hygiene and receive the necessary dental care, including preventive, maintenance, and, if necessary, early treatment.

Find a place where your child has a positive, comfortable and relaxed experience during his/her first dental checkup.

Compassionate Dental Team

Younger children respond best when treated with compassion, patience, and humor, preferably in the earlier parts of the day. Most children are also comfortable and less nervous when their parent stays with them in the examination. This also gives you an opportunity to gain a better understanding of your child’s dental and oral health.

Preventive visits

After the initial dental visit and exam, the dentist will recommend the regular six-month recare appointments to continue your child’s preventative oral care. If any treatment is administered, you may need your child to come in sooner for a follow-up visit to ensure proper recovery.

Final Note

During routine checkups, your child will receive an oral exam to ensure that he/she is brushing and flossing properly and to check for any tooth decay, gum disease, and other problems. These visits also make it possible for the dental team to develop a strong relationship with your child and inculcate good dental habits that allow them to smile with confidence.
