Having a kid comes with its own perks but you need to think differently for a lot of things as well. When it comes to choosing a dentist for your kid, it is best to consult a kids dentist who knows how to properly handle the problems that occur in the mouths of children. Since pediatric dentists specialize in handling children, they will help you to solve problems such as tooth decay, loss of baby teeth, cavities etc. more easily.
At Seattle’s Family Dentistry, we believe that an early dental wellness is important for any child. Taking care of their teeth early on helps to grow out a great smile in the years to come. We recommend you to bring your child around his or her first birthday, when his teeth become visible for the first time.
Here are some more reasons why you should get a kids dentist:
- More specialized training
Kids dentists spend more years in training as compared to traditional dentists. They focus on child psychology, their growth and development as well as the treatment of children with special needs. They are more qualified to handle problems that occur in children’s mouths and administer sedation to them. Some of these problems include cavities which occur frequently in children, extraction of baby teeth and sometimes even wisdom teeth, giving advice on how to properly take care of their teeth etc.
- Understands your child
Since the kids dentists work with children all throughout their career, they are very familiar with the problems of children. They know their concerns better with every age and are experienced in keeping them calm even through the process of extracting a tooth out. Their experience with handling children will help you and your child feel more comfortable in the dentist’s chair.
