Pedodontics (kid's Dentistry)

Is the branch of dentistry dealing with children from birth through adolescence.
This discipline focuses on pediatric/adolescent growth and development, disease causality and prevention, child psychology and management, and all aspects of the highly-specialized pediatric restorative techniques and modalities.

Our pedodontists emphasize the establishment of trust and confidence with the child which is one of the main components of pediatric dentistry. This manifests itself in our special office designs, different communication styles and an emphasis on teaching preventative dental habits to children in an effort to make dental visits enjoyable.

                          "Pediatric Dentistry places special importance in preventing tooth decay"

Pediatric Dentists give advice on how to keep teeth free of caries, the importance of developing healthy eating habits and other ways to prevent diseases from occurring.

Additionally, Our pedodontists at SDC work towards the maintenance of primary teeth (baby teeth) until they are naturally lost. This is due to the importance they serve in permitting children to chew properly and therefore maintain good nutrition, their role in speech development, and the maintenance of space for the eventual eruption of the permanent teeth. Our pediatric dentists promote the dental health of children as well as serve as educational resources for parents.

A DENTAL VISIT should occur within SIX MONTHS after the presence of the first tooth or by a child's first birthday. This is because early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay.
Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify aberrant habits, and treat as needed and as simply as possible. Additionally, parents are given a program of preventative home care (brushing/flossing/fluorides), a caries risk assessment, information on finger, thumb, and pacifier habits, advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth of children, diet counseling, and information on growth and development by our pedodontists at SDC.
