Types of Pediatric Dentists

Pediatric dentists are trained to care for the oral health of children and adolescents. They know about the types of dental problems that affect children and teach preventative hygiene. The following are a few types of dental work undertaken by pediatric dental professionals.

  • Cleanings – A dentist who specializes in pedodontics performs semi annual teeth cleanings and examinations on children and adolescents. Fluoride gel treatments are commonly recommended for children to prevent cavities, so a treatment is often given with the cleaning. Dental products used in pediatric dentistry are often made in more child friendly flavors.
  • Cavities – A cavity is a hole that develops in a tooth as a result of infection. If cavities are not treated they typically become painful and may result in more serious health consequences like the loss of a tooth or spreading of the infection. Dentists that specialize in pedodontics advise children on proper preventative care to avoid cavities.
  • Extractions – Extractions are required when a tooth is severely decayed, impacted, or fractured. They are also done to prepare patients mouths for dentures, to either improve the way the dentures will look or fit. Children may have primary teeth extracted to allow for adult teeth to grow or have teeth taken out in preparation for braces.
  • Veneers – A veneer is a layer of porcelain or composite material that is placed over a tooth to protect a damaged tooth or improve an individuals appearance. Veneers are an important tool in cosmetic dentistry. They are sometimes used in pediatric dentistry to cover chipped or broken teeth.
  • Orthodontics – Orthodontic dentists realign teeth to improve their function and appearance. They use things like braces and retainers to slowly move teeth and keep them straight.
