Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.
Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. By age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by secondary, permanent teeth. Without proper dental care, children face possible oral decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Today, early childhood dental caries—an infectious disease—is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever.
Oral health in children is as important as in adults. A pediatric dentist is the person who attends to children's dental problem they have undergone formal training from an academy of pediatric dentistry and knows the special care that needs to be undertaken while attending to children and their medical issues. Children cannot be considered in the same league as adults when it comes to their health problems, more specifically their dental care. The dental growth in infants, pre-teens, teenagers & adolescent is different and they all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, which will help them to avoid future dental problems.
The dental setup of children is very different from that of adults. Hence, their requirements also differ significantly which must be taken into account when dealing with kids and minors. Usually, going to the pediatric dentist for a checkup or a visit can cause anxiety in children; we all know how daunting it can be to visit the dentist as an adult; as a child with not much understanding of dental care, the fear can be even more overwhelming. Therefore, it is important that the pediatric dentist knows how to deal with minors, how to allay their fears and explain any misconceptions about oral health, and in general must make the young patient feel comfortable and at ease.
