Pediatric Dentistry Q&A

Does my child need pediatric dentistry?

The short answer is, yes! Pediatric dentistry is designed to address the unique needs and concerns of children from infancy through adolescence. 

By scheduling your child’s regular pediatric dentistry appointments, you set them on the path of lifelong oral health and help them develop good oral habits at a young age. 

When you guide your child to actively participate in dental visits, you also teach them interpersonal skills and show them how to advocate for themselves. Also, pediatric dentistry in a kind, kid-friendly environment fosters positive experiences that will help your children not fear going to the dentist as they get older. 

What happens during a pediatric dentistry visit?

Pediatric dentistry visits vary on several factors, such as your child’s age. For example, if your child is an infant or a toddler, Infinity Dental Group directs their energy towards checking that your child’s gums are clean and that their emerging baby teeth are healthy. 

During early pediatric dentistry visits, the practice makes sure to educate you on pediatric oral hygiene, such as how to keep your child’s teeth and gums free from bacteria and plaque. They also teach you to spot abnormal tissue or early signs of decay.

As your toddler becomes a kid, Infinity Dental Group begins teaching them how to take care of their teeth themselves. 

Once your child has grown all of their teeth, the practice performs oral exams to look for signs of dental decay or gum disease.

Often, Infinity Dental Group also protects your child’s teeth by coating them with dental sealants. Dental sealants cover the teeth and protect the tiny, hard-to-reach crevices that otherwise could fall prey to tooth decay.

Other procedures that the practice may perform during a pediatric dentistry appointment include: 

  • Cavity repair and filling
  • 3-D X-ray imaging
  • Evaluation of your child’s bite (how your their upper and lower teeth come together)
  • Recommendations for orthodontic treatments

Finally, if your child wants to participate in sports, the Infinity Dental Group can also recommend and mold mouthguards to protect their teeth during practice and games.

How often should I schedule pediatric dentistry appointments?

To ensure their best oral health, take your child to the dentist for a checkup every six months. By doing so, you make it much harder for cavities and other issues to develop. It also helps Infinity Dental Group to catch potential problems early and intervene. 

Pediatric dentistry matters. To help your child enjoy good oral health for life, schedule their visit with Infinity Dental Group online or over the phone today.
