Frequently Asked Questions About Pediatric Dentistry in Rockwall, TX
What does a pediatric dentist do?
Pediatric dentists specialize in treating children and patients with special needs. While we perform many of the same procedures as a general or family dentist, we also offer many treatment modalities that are unique to children, like baby root canals and interceptive orthodontics. Our specialty training means we have a more experience and in-depth understanding of children’s dental needs as they progress through the different stages of childhood.
What age should a child go to the dentist for the first time?
The American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry both recommend that children first see the dentist around the age of 12 months, or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. These early visits allow us to get to know you and your child, and help your child feel comfortable at our office. They’re also important for making sure your child’s teeth are erupting properly and for providing instruction on oral hygiene practices.
How often do kids need to see the dentist?
Just like adults, children should go to the dentist every six months for comprehensive evaluations and dental cleanings. It provides a great interval to follow up on growth, development and to catch possible dental issues early when they are easiest to correct. Routine dental care helps to ensure your children maintain a healthy smile for years to come!
Should my child see a pediatric dentist?
Most children see pediatricians for their healthcare because they have specialized knowledge and experience treating children. This is the same reason your child should see a pediatric dentist for their dental care—we have more knowledge and experience treating children because it’s all we do. Our office is designed to be welcoming for kids, our staff is trained in making our patients feel at ease whenever they visit, and even the dental tools we used are made for kid-sized mouths. It’s worth the visit to see what a difference a specialist can make!
