What does children’s dentistry include?

Children’s dentistry, also known as pediatric dentistry, is a special branch of dentistry that focuses on delivering dental care to children and teens, from birth to adolescence.

Babies, young children, and teenagers require a different, specialized kind of dental care that is different from adults because their teeth are still developing. If they do not receive professional dental care at these early stages in their lives, they are likely to develop oral complications and diseases that can haunt them even in adulthood.

Children’s dentists provide comprehensive dental care that ensures that your child is not only free from dental complications but also practices exemplary oral care at home.

Some of the services that children’s dentistry include are:
  • Oral health assessments for infants to ensure that there are no risks for future complications
  • Preventive dental care including teeth cleaning and fluoride treatment
  • Special counseling on diet and nutrition for improving dental health
  • Emergency dental care such as fixing a broken or chipped tooth
  • Habit counseling for common unhealthy practices common in babies and kids such as thumb and finger sucking
  • Early assessment and correction of misaligned teeth and improper bites
  • Early assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of various oral diseases such as ulcers, gum diseases, mucoceles, pediatric periodontal disease, and more
  • Teeth extraction and repair of tooth cavities and other defects

Gentle, child-focused dental care

At LiveWell Dentistry, we understand that kids aren’t always excited and eager to visit the dentist’s office. Children often associate going to the dentist with fear and pain, which is exactly why we have adopted a gentle and positive approach to children’s dentistry.

Dr. Shabnam Khanideh and Dr. Mehra Pouyan, as well as the entire staff in our office, have all been trained exhaustively so that they can make kids feel safe and comfortable. We strongly believe that when your child has a positive dental experience, they will be more excited to return for their next appointment instead of you having to force them.

We know what it takes to create a child-friendly environment and our approaches to delivering quality pediatric dental care have been very successful with many of our young patients. We understand that children may not always have the patience to cooperate while they are sitting on the chair, but with us, you can rest assured that your child is in the hands of professionals who know exactly what they are doing.
