How is pediatric dentistry different?
Pediatric dentistry is different from general dentistry in that it is specifically tailored to meet the needs of children. Pediatric dentists are trained to provide preventive and early corrective dental care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults up to age 21. They are also trained to address the unique needs of children, such as anxiety management and behavior management. Additionally, pediatric dentists use special equipment and techniques that are appropriate for children, such as smaller instruments and chairs, and sedation and general anesthesia in some cases.
Common Dental Problems for Children
Early Childhood Cavities (or baby bottle tooth decay): This is a common dental problem in young children, caused by prolonged exposure to sugary liquids, such as milk or juice, which coats the teeth and allows bacteria to grow and produce acids that attack the enamel.
Thumb Sucking: Thumb sucking can cause misalignment of the teeth, resulting in an overbite or underbite.
Tooth Decay: Tooth decay occurs when bacteria in the mouth produces acids that attack the enamel, creating small holes in the teeth.
