Pediatric Treatments

Why is professional dental care important for children?

  • Milk teeth are important for chewing, speaking and your child's appearance.
  • Milk teeth must receive proper professional care to prevent toothaches, cavities and severe decay.
  • If decay causes premature loss of a milk tooth, adjacent permanent teeth may drift into the empty space. This can cause crooked teeth & and an eventual need for braces.
  • Habits such as thumb sucking, mouth breathing and tongue thrusting can affect child's teeth, the appearance of facial features and cause speech problems. A pediatric dentist can address these habits before they lead to greater problem.
  • By getting your child's regular check up, you can either avoid braces or make the orthodontic treatment time much shorter.
