Frequently asked questions

Who is a pediatric dentist?

A pediatric dentist is a specialist who provides comprehensive oral care to infants, children and teens. Pediatric dentists undergo advanced training beyond their dental degree. This training equips them with the knowledge and skills to address unique dental and oral health needs children have from infancy to adolescence. One of the primary focuses of pediatric dentists is preventive care, which includes check-ups, cleanings and education on oral hygiene practices to help children maintain healthy teeth and gums.

At what age should children begin routine dental examinations?

The first dental exam for a child can take place within six months of the eruption of their first baby tooth. It usually occurs around the age of six months to one year, although the timing can vary from child to child. NHS guidelines say children should have at least one visit to the dentist before the age of two.

How often do children need to visit the dentist?

The British Dental Association recommends children should see a dentist at least once a year. Although it applies to low-risk children, moderate to high-risk children may need dental check-ups every six months or three months. If a child has orthodontic concerns or is referred to an orthodontist for evaluation and treatment, the frequency of dental visits may vary and may involve more frequent appointments during orthodontic treatment.

What are some common conditions treated in pediatric dentistry?

Cavities, gum disease, tooth eruption problems, malocclusions, oral infections, dental trauma, teething discomfort, tooth grinding, thumb sucking, and pacifier habits are some of the most common dental conditions treated in pediatric dentistry.

Are hygiene treatments suitable for children?

Yes, hygiene treatments are suitable and vital for children as part of their dental care. Dental cleanings are a fundamental component of preventive dentistry and oral hygiene maintenance for individuals of all ages, including children. They can prevent tooth decay and preserve gum health.

Can children receive orthodontic treatments for misalignments of teeth?

Yes, children can receive orthodontic treatments for misalignments of teeth. Orthodontic treatment typically begins after a child’s adult teeth have emerged. It usually happens around age 12, depending on the growth of their face and jaws and how many adult teeth have come in. However, timing may vary depending on individual needs and development. Early assessment allows orthodontists to identify and address issues early, as some orthodontic problems are easier to correct when a child is still growing.

What are the things to consider when selecting a pediatric dentist?

There are several important factors to consider when choosing a qualified and suitable practitioner for your child. Verify that the dentist is fully qualified and has the necessary training. Visit the clinic to ensure it offers a relaxed atmosphere for children. Observe how the dentist and their staff interact with children. They should be patient, friendly, and skilled at building rapport with young patients. They must be able to provide preventive, restorative, orthodontic and emergency care. Options for sedation or anaesthesia should be available if your child has dental anxiety or requires extensive treatment. Read reviews and recommendations.

What are some tips for managing dental anxiety in children?

Choose a pediatric dentist. They have had the training to manage children’s dental anxiety. Start dental visits at a young age to familiarise them with the process. Use positive reinforcement during and after dental visits. Play dentist with your child at home to help them become familiar with dental instruments and procedures. Read books or watch videos that teach children about visiting the dentist in a fun and educational way. Bring along a favourite toy or comfort item to the appointment.

How do you ensure that your child maintains optimal dental health between appointments?

Establish a dental routine of brushing twice daily. Supervise brushing until children are 7 to make sure it is effective. Use age-appropriate toothbrushes and toothpaste. Replace your child’s toothbrush every 3-4 months or sooner if the bristles become frayed. Teach proper brushing techniques. Limit sugary snacks and beverages. Encourage a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. Discourage thumb-sucking or pacifier use as they get older.
