Why pediatric dentistry is important?

When the babies are 6-7 months old, their first tooth would have appeared. From this stage importance should be given to good oral hygiene. As a matter of fact, even before the appearance of first teeth, the gums should be cleaned with a soft cloth. As the first set of teeth, also called as milk teeth or primary teeth, forms the base for permanent teeth, it is very essential to impart proper care. In addition to the high importance imparted to the proper growth and alignment of the teeth, pediatric dentistry also involves checking of poor bites and advising preventive measures or treatment for good care of gum, mouth and teeth. Hence, it is a good practice to visit a pediatric dentist as soon as the first tooth erupts or at least within six months of the appearance of first tooth.

Why visit a Pediatric Dentist?

  • For general oral examination and to detect any signs of tooth decay.
  • To maintain oral health by preventive measures.
  • To analyze, counsel and offer treatment for a child’s habit like thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, night grinding, nail biting, lip biting and use of pacifier. With several habit breaking appliances available, the pediatric dentist may prescribe them if necessary. As these habits inhibit the proper growth of the teeth, they all should be informed to pediatric dentist.
  • Analysis and seek advice on general food habits and importance of a healthy diet.
