What are the most common dental procedures in pediatrics?
The most common dental procedures in pediatrics include:
Dental Sealants: These are thin, plastic coatings that are applied to the back teeth (molars) to prevent cavities.
Fluoride Treatments: This helps strengthen tooth enamel and prevents cavities
Fillings: This is when a dentist removes decay from a tooth and then fills it with material (usually amalgam or composite resin)
Root Canals: This is when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected and needs to be removed; it's then filled with an inert material.
Tooth Extractions: This is usually done if there is too much damage decay on a tooth or if baby teeth need to be removed prior to getting braces.
What is the main goal of Pediatric Dentistry?
The main goal of pediatric dentistry is to ensure that children have healthy teeth and mouths. This includes preventing dental problems, promoting good oral hygiene habits, and providing early intervention when necessary.
By starting young, children can develop a lifelong foundation for good oral health.
Asking your pediatric dentist the right questions can help ensure that your child gets the best possible care. By being prepared and knowing what to ask, you can help make sure that your child's dental visit is a positive experience.
