What is kids’ dentistry?

Kids’ dentistry includes the full range of dental health needs for kids of all ages. Many parents are surprised to learn that babies need to begin seeing a pediatric dentist for early dental care visits as soon as that first tiny tooth begins to emerge.

Pediatric dentistry focuses on preventive care. Routine dental exams check for signs of decay or disease, empowering parents to take action in the earliest possible stages when treatment is often most effective.

When issues like cavities or gum disease arise, pediatric dentistry offers a range of solutions. Correcting the current set of symptoms is important, but your child’s dentist also focuses on educating and empowering kids to improve their dental hygiene habits to avoid future issues.

Why is kids’ dentistry so important?

When kids grow up enjoying their early dental care visits, they’re more likely to continue to work with a dentist throughout adulthood. The team at NovaDental understands the importance of these early interactions and strives to make all pediatric dental visits as fun as possible.

Far too many parents believe that baby teeth are not important, since the permanent teeth will soon replace them. But the health of your child’s baby teeth has a substantial impact on their overall dental health and deserves professional care.

Taking great care of your teeth is something that’s learned, and based on habits established at a very early age. When you partner with a pediatric dentist at NovaDental, you have the support and guidance needed to start your little one on a path of excellent dental health.

What if my child is fearful of coming in for dental care?

Some kids develop a substantial fear of coming in to see the dentist. This sometimes happens after kids see a movie or television show depicting dental care in a negative light. It can also occur after a negative experience in the dental chair.

Sometimes, all it takes is hearing friends or family speak about dental visits in a way that seems frightening or stressful. One of the best ways to help your child feel more comfortable in a dental setting is to bring them with you during your next dental exam so they can see there’s nothing to fear.
