Why is pediatric dentistry so important?

Routine checkups and exams, fluoride treatments, and sealants are all part of precautionary dental care.

Along with nutritional and health recommendations, as well as suggestions for reducing pacifier use as well as swollen gums and thumb sucking.

Orthodontics, which includes early evaluation and maintenance for teeth straightening and bite correction.

Immediate treatment for broken teeth, permanent teeth that have been damaged for any reason, and other dental emergencies.

When do I need to be concerned about my baby’s oral hygiene?

Healthy habits in infants and children can help avoid or minimize cavities. Your baby's first dental visit should take place between the ages of 6 and 12 months, or no later than 6 months after his first tooth emerges.


Pediatric dental care focuses on providing dental treatment and preventive care specifically for children, ensuring their oral health from infancy through adolescence.

A child typically has 20 primary (baby) teeth, which eventually fall out and are replaced by 32 permanent teeth as they grow into adulthood.

In a child’s mouth, the molars at the back, specifically the third molars or wisdom teeth, are typically absent. They usually begin to emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood.

All new patients receive oral exam, digital x-rays for $89.
