There are many differences that separate children’s dentistry from general dentistry. Chief among those differences is that baby teeth and adult teeth have different hygiene needs. At Colony Dental, we help children develop an appreciation for going to the dentist and ensure that they have a pleasant experience. Our goal is for our littlest patients to get the best care. We know that they have different needs from our older patients. With patience and understanding of how kids experience the dentist, we can make coming to the dentist fun so that your kids will not be worried about their yearly cleanings.
What is Specific to Children’s Dentistry?
There are two big things that children’s dentists are concerned about. The first is the health of the baby teeth, and the second is the eruption of the adult teeth. One of the keys for parents to understand is that even though baby teeth fall out, it is essential to keep them healthy. If the teeth in the mouth are not healthy, then your child stands the chance of having cavities and other gum issues that could affect the development of adult teeth. For adult teeth, children’s dentists always check to ensure that they will erupt correctly.
