What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry can be defined as a branch of dentistry focused on the dental health of children from birth to adolescence. This type of dentistry is handled by pediatric dentists whose focus is diagnosing and treating common dental health problems affecting infants, children, and teens.

Pediatric dentistry covers all common and unique dental issues that can affect the teeth, gums, and jaws of children as their bodies develop and grow.

Is Pediatric Dentistry Important? Why Should Parents Care?

  1. High prevalence of child dental health problems: CDC research data indicates that over 52% of all children between 5 and 8 years get at least one cavity in their baby teeth or primary teeth.

2. Risk of serious diseases and possible fatalities: What’s more, untreated cavities tend to cause serious infections that spread to the rest of the body causing serious diseases and fatalities in worst-case scenarios.

Considering primary teeth develop within the first 6 months of life and don’t fall out till age 5 to 7, the importance of pediatric dentistry can’t be overemphasized. Caring for baby teeth is important for preventing cavities and diseases that can last a lifetime.

3. Overall development and self-esteem: Good dental habits for children are also important for their own development and self-esteem. Children with missing teeth and/or poorly developed teeth can’t eat or speak properly. Poor dental habits can also be carried through to adulthood.

Our Main Services: Dentist for Kids in North York

When you visit Dr. Claire Benmergui Family & Cosmetic Dentistry Clinic for pediatric services, your child will receive preventative or restorative services:

a. Preventative Dental Services

These services include all children’s dental services meant to prevent common kids’ dental health problems i.e:

  • Dental exam: Children should go for their first dental exam within 6 months of their first tooth erupting or before 1 year, at the latest. Our dental exams for children examine everything from the teeth to the jaws, gums, bite, and overall oral tissue growth and development.
  • Dental cleaning: If a dental exam reveals the need for cleaning, we offer gentle cleaning services which include removing any stains, tartar, and/or plaque.
  • Oral hygiene techniques: We may also review proper dental hygiene techniques to ensure your child has the skills required to maintain clean and healthy teeth. This service can extend to caregivers i.e., equipping parents with the skills to help maintain their child’s dental health.
  • General education: We also educate parents/caregivers on children’s dental growth and development. This includes guidance on the eruption of primary and permanent teeth and ways of preventing the need for orthodontic treatment in the future.

b. Restorative Dental Services

If your child develops a cavity or other dental health problems, we have restorative services encompassing all services meant to restore their dental health. These services include:

  • Dental fillings
  • Dental extractions
  • Dental crowns
  • Fluoride treatment: For supplementing oral hygiene routines and preventing tooth decay
  • Other services include emergency dental care (in case of falls or accidents) and mild sedation dentistry (comfortable and relaxed dental treatment under laughing gas).
