What Is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry encompasses all dental and oral health care treatments your child will receive from infancy through their teen years. Pediatric dentistry is largely preventative in scope, with time allotted during each appointment for oral health education to help young generations establish good oral health habits. After all, scientists have concluded that poor oral health is linked with many serious and preventable conditions later in life.

Benefits of Early Dental Care

Early dental care emphasizes oral health education, proper oral health care techniques, and preventative care. When children see a dentist regularly, it sets them up for good oral health in the future. Early dental care also helps prevent small problems from worsening, causing pain, or requiring more complex treatment. Studies show that preventative pediatric treatments such as dental sealants and fluoride treatments can prevent more than 90% of cavities in kids.

Pediatric Dental Procedures Offered

The pediatric dentists at Sunshine Dentistry emphasize prevention. As such, preventative  pediatric dental treatments include:

  • Oral examinations 
  • Biannual cleanings
  • Dental sealants to prevent cavities
  • Flouride treatments to strengthen teeth
  • Reduced radiation digital x-rays 

When problems do arise, our dentists use the safest, least invasive treatments for your child, such as:

  • Composite fillings
  • Dental bonding for chipped or broken teeth
  • Dental bonding for discolored teeth
  • Tooth extractions
  • Dental crowns (caps)
  • Baby root canal (pulpotomy)
  • Clear aligners for misaligned teeth or bite problems (permanent teeth)
