Your Pediatric Dentist in Milton, FL

When it comes to children’s dental care, extra attention and assistance are necessary. Visiting a dental clinic can be a daunting experience for children, who may find it challenging to sit still while a dentist examines their teeth with various tools. Therefore, it is essential to find a professional who can cater to the unique needs of your whole family.

A trusted family dentist can provide the necessary expertise and experience in dealing with young patients. They know precisely how to create a comfortable environment and employ techniques that make the process less intimidating. By doing so, they can ensure that children receive the dental care they need without any added stress or anxiety. Therefore, parents and guardians should seek out professionals trained and skilled in providing dental care for children to ensure their children’s oral health.

  • What does pediatric dentistry include?

    Pediatric dentistry involves the use of sealants to prevent tooth decay and cavities in a child’s rear molars. This preventive treatment is effective by covering the teeth with a thin acrylic coating that hardens and prevents harmful bacteria and plaque from causing damage to the teeth. Additionally, fluoride applications can be helpful in strengthening your child’s tooth enamel and preventing decay. Directly applying fluoride to the teeth forms a bond with the enamel, keeping teeth healthy and strong and, in some cases, even reversing decay.

  • What are the common issues of dental health in children?

    As children’s teeth are still in the developmental stage, untreated dental conditions can have a significant impact on their tooth development, leading to serious issues as they grow up. Many of the dental problems that affect adults also affect children. Here are some common dental issues that children might experience:

    • Thumb-sucking
    • Canker sores
    • Baby teeth loss
    • Over-retained primary teeth
    • Dental anxiety
    • Tooth decay
    • Bad breath
    • Sensitive teeth
    • Gum disease
    • Teeth grinding
  • What is a space maintainer?

    Dental space maintainers are devices to preserve space for permanent teeth after the early loss of baby teeth. Primary teeth hold space for adult teeth to grow correctly. Premature loss of primary teeth can cause adult teeth to grow crookedly, leading to costly problems. Seek our office’s consultation if your child has lost a primary tooth early. If your child has space maintainers from us, follow the link for aftercare instructions.
