Children’s dentist – a dentist specialized in pediatric dentistry
The children’s dentist is a professional who finished dental school and followed a two-year specialization in pediatric dentistry. They only check and treat patients between 1 and 18 years old, so they have extensive experience in examining, diagnosing and treating children’s teeth. Furthermore, the equipment, as well as the medications and tools used during treatment are designed children’s needs.
The pediatric dentistry program gives dentists insight into children’s psychology so that they know how to best approach different age groups (toddlers, pre-teens, teenagers). Also, it offers in-depth information about particular problems related to primary teeth, permanent tooth eruption, cavities and orthodontic treatment.
The children’s dentists are trained to check the bone and jaw development, seal and fluorinate the teeth and make dental recommendations based on children’s habits. They are also specialized in offering dental services and guidance to children with special needs.
