What are Pediatrics?
Infants, toddlers, children, and teens all benefit from routine dental care. By taking a proactive approach to their smile, their teeth will stay healthy and strong for life. Adopting healthy habits and instilling the importance of going to the dentist early in life can help them to keep up with these habits later on. We are able to offer your children the care that they need regardless of age.
Why is Pediatric care needed?
Pediatric care is important both for preventative as well as restorative reasons. Preventative care can help to prevent issues from developing, such as cavities and severe orthodontic problems. Restorative care can be helpful when issues have already started, like a cavity or problems with tooth alignment. We even help to monitor the overall development of your child’s smile, and help in providing them with superior orthodontic care.
What are common Pediatric procedures?
Each child is different and will need unique care when coming into our office. We offer care to our pediatric patients in a calm, relaxed, and kid-friendly environment. Some of the more common pediatric procedures include:
- Exams and cleanings
- Fluoride treatments
- Orthodontic care
- Dental health and hygiene education
- Oral health guidance and personalization
- Product recommendations
What can your child expect during a Pediatric appointment?
For regular checkup visits, we often begin with a cleaning that is performed by a registered and licensed dental hygienist. The teeth are thoroughly cleaned and flossed to remove any tartar and plaque. Dr. Ju will then perform the exam, looking for cavities and other problems. We may take x-rays, depending on your child’s age, to determine underlying development and tooth positioning. We can even provide your child with fluoride treatments that will help to keep their teeth healthy and strong. It is never too soon or too late to have your child begin the treatment they need.
If your child needs to come in for an appointment, call us today to schedule one with one of our friendly staff members. We have extended office hours as well as superior customer service, so your whole family will receive the care that they deserve.
