Pediatric dentistry is dental care geared specifically to younger patients. Pediatric dentists undergo additional training after dental school to learn the best methods for working with children and provide an extra degree of support and care.
The team of caring professionals at Dental Studios offers exceptional pediatric dentistry and are highly skilled at optimizing oral health for their younger.
There are several reasons to take your child to a pediatric dentist. Children have different needs than adults, and a pediatric dentist is better equipped to address those needs.
For example, a pediatric dentist understands your child’s emotional needs and makes the dental office a safe space for your child. It’s important for your child to have positive early experiences at the dentist, since dental phobias that develop at a young age can stick around well into adulthood and prevent your child from properly caring for their oral health.
The team of warm and friendly providers at Dental Studios offers a variety of pediatric dentistry services, including:
Routine cleanings and exams enable your dentist to monitor the state of your oral health and address any dental concerns at their earliest stages. But they’re especially important for children because they serve as a platform to learn about the basic principles of oral hygiene and how they can keep their mouth healthy at home.
Sealants and fluoride treatments are preventive procedures that reduce your child’s likelihood of developing tooth decay.
With sealants, your dentist bonds a thin layer of plastic to the chewing surfaces of their molars, making them smoother and less susceptible to harboring food particles, debris, and bacteria.
Fluoride is a mineral that helps strengthen your child’s tooth enamel, thereby making it more difficult for them to develop cavities. Your dentist can administer fluoride as a gel, foam, or rinse.
