Pediatric dentists or pedodontists are dental specialists that help and provide dental treatments to young children to obtain a healthier teeth. As a parent, you may worry or wonder should you bring your child to your local family general dentist or a pediatric dentist?

For some and many parents, having a close relationships and long-term trust is important, you may therefore like to book an appointment first with your family dentist. Though, every parents wants the best for your children and shifting from your family dentist to a pedodontist or pediatric doctor can be beneficial to your young children – especially if its their first visit, your child requires special monitoring or if you have some specific oral concerns on your child’s teeth.

Pediatric dentists differ from general and family dentists in terms handling young children cases. Pedodontists provide dental treatment techniques and knowledge specific to the care of children’s teeth. They look at primary teeth and monitor growth irregularities or uses child psychology to manage children’s behaviours.

Enforcing positive and a happy oral care and dental experience during your child’s dentist visit with a pediatric dental specialist from start provides for a sound foundation and a good impact on caring for your child’s teeth whilst growing up.

Like in health treatments where are cardialogists specialists on your heart or a ENT specialists on linkages canals for ears, nose and throat; Within dentistry, each field of dentistry also has its dental specialists – pediatric dentists are trained to diagnoses and treats baby teeth or primary teeth, periodontists treats gums whilst an endodontists treats tooth roots.

At what age my child should see the pediatric dentists?

Children’s teeth are no less than important like adults teeth. As early as 6 months old, babies typically start teething. When you child’s teeth has erupted, we do encourage you to set an appointment for your baby’s very first dental appointment (don’t forget to bring your camera to capture this worth collecting memory).
 
Infancy, toddler, childhood and puberty are key age stages that your child’s pediatric dentists monitor on oral hygiene behaviour and teeth growth. The mentally of childlren and young minds changes. Both your pedoddontist and parents play vital roles during each age phase on oral care and hygiene.
 
Good routine and learning starts at home. Therefore, if parents have good knowledge and engage their children about the basics of oral hygiene care at an early age, your child will be responsible and having a healthy life-long smile.
 
During puberty, your child may feel embarrased or shy on going to a pediatric dental clinic. Should your child feel this way, open communication is recommended. Ask your child if he/she prefer to visit a general dentist. If they they have specific concerns on misaligned teeth, overcrowded teeth or on their smile in general, many teens consult an orthodontist or braces dentist at this age stage. Teen and pre-teens commonly have braces done beause during this stage all or most of their adult teeth would have erupted and a stable jaw structure.   
Parents can always ask pediatric dentists on any concerns regarding their child’s teeth and behaviour at every and any stage who can refer forward to a corresponding specialist nd provide further advice.
