Pediatric dentistry is that branch of dentistry that deals with children right from their birth till adolescent period. Dr. Raghu suggested to start the infant check-up somewhere around from 6 months to one year or till the child’s first teeth appears.
With losing teeth as a part of their growing process, their teeth become more susceptible to cavities. Since children behave differently than adults there may arise different dental needs. Hence, the dentists have to work with parents for deriving different plans for their children and encourage them to take care of their teeth.Every child is different from each other, and that’s why the dentist helps each child individually with developing great habits which will help them to grow a good oral health.
Pediatric dentistry typically includes services like regular check-ups, cleaning, X-rays and decay risk assessment, fillings and orthodontic assessment. The important part of your child’s dental care is the pre-defined oral health protective advice. The first step would be dealing with children’s emotions and taking their fear out making them comfortable.
