What ss a Pediatric Dentist or a Child Dentist?
Pediatric dentists, also called pedodontists, specialize in diagnosing and treating dental problems in children, and teenagers. They focus on dental issues that can develop in gums, teeth, and jaw as the body develops and grows.
Children develop their primary teeth within the first six months of life. Baby teeth start to fall out around age six or seven and are replaced with adult teeth. Although baby teeth don’t follow children into adulthood, it’s important to start caring for them early. A lack of proper dental care can lead to decay and disease that lasts a lifetime.
Taking your child to see a pediatric dentist by age one ensures they’ll have the proper screening and treatment to prevent future dental problems. Come setup an appointment to meet our Pediatric Dentist at Alvi Dental Hospital
