Why is Pediatric Dentistry So Important?

Your mouth is linked to everything else in your body. It is directly linked to your cardio-pulmonary system and very near to your brain. Infections can easily spread from the mouth to these other parts of the body. By teaching your children good oral hygiene at a young age, you can help them prevent considerable problems later in life that require invasive procedures to correct.

The chance of gum disease and infection can be greatly reduced by ensuring that your child’s teeth are correctly aligned. This can also prevent the undesirable side effects of TMJ disorders. The team at Peak Family Dental Care can ensure your children get comfortable professional treatments that avoid future complications.

Tooth Decay Prevention

Tooth decay is one of those things that most adults our age have learned to live with. We get a cavity and then we get a filling. That’s just the way it is. But modern dentistry can take active steps to prevent permanent teeth from getting cavities early. We encourage your child to take their dental hygiene seriously and with fluoride treatments and sealant, we can prevent many of the problems that we had to endure as we entered our 20’s and 30’s.

Sealants prevent plaque and bacteria from building up in the grooves of molars which, as you know, are the first teeth to go. Fluoride treatments strengthen teeth and help teeth build new enamel. This prevents cavities down the road.

Comfort Is Our Priority

It’s possible that your child may be scared of dentists. That’s OK. Sometimes, we scare ourselves and each other. If your child is uncomfortable with dental procedures, we can administer sedatives to help them through the process. Maybe afterward, they won’t be so afraid of the mean old dentists.

We also provide basic services to children including:

  • Fillings
  • Extractions
  • Wisdom teeth removal
  • And periodontal care.

We treat our young patients with compassion and gentle techniques for better treatment experiences.
