The needs of infants, children, and adolescents vary significantly in providing treatment compared to adults. Looking after these age groups requires different approaches to providing treatment, managing their acceptance of treatment, and ensuring the jaws and teeth develop properly – which is why you would want to choose a pediatric dentist over a general dental provider.
Pediatric dentists specialize in oral care and the needs of infants, children, and teenagers. Pediatric dentists took additional extensive training for two to three years focusing on treating children and patients with special needs. At Belmont Pediatric Dentistry, all our doctors have been specially trained to deal with issues specific to a child’s developing teeth and jaws. Our specialists are here not only to provide treatment but also to help prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems before they even develop.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that your child should visit a dentist for the first time within six months following the first tooth eruption or at one year old. Typically, the first front tooth will come out at six months. This is the best time to discuss preventive measures to keep your child’s teeth in tip-top shape and detect any problems early on.
Here at Belmont Pediatric Dentistry, our pediatric dentists are trained to manage children as young as one year old and ensure they have a positive and fun dental experience.
