Frequently asked questions

It is normal to have doubts and questions and we think it is our responsibility to get your questions answered. Our entire team of pediatric dentists have compiled a list of some frequently asked questions by our patients and our responses to it.

What is a Pediatric Dentist?2019-04-25T11:21:17-04:00

Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.

At what age should my child have his/her first dental visit?2019-04-25T11:30:32-04:00

“First visit by first birthday” is the general rule. To prevent dental problems, your child should see a pediatric dentist when the first tooth appears, usually between 6 and 12 months of age, certainly no later than his/her first birthday.

Is my child getting enough fluoride?2019-04-25T11:32:36-04:00

Fluoride has been shown to dramatically decrease a person’s chances of getting cavities by making teeth stronger. Fluoride in the drinking water is the best and easiest way to get it, but to make sure your child is getting enough fluoride, have your pediatric dentist evaluate the fluoride level of your child’s primary source of water. If your child is not getting enough fluoride internally through water (especially in communities where the water district does not fluoridate the water or if your child drinks bottled water without fluoride), your pediatric dentist may prescribe fluoride supplements.

What Does a Pediatric Dentist Do?2019-04-25T11:21:20-04:00

Pediatric dentists treat infants and children through adolescence, according to the American Dental Association. Pediatric dentistry is considered one of the nine fields of dental specialties. Dentists in this field provide a wide range of treatments to their patients. That includes their primary, or baby, teeth and then their secondary teeth as those arrive and develop, as well as their mouth and gums.

How should I clean my baby’s teeth?2019-04-25T11:29:05-04:00

A toothbrush with soft bristles and a small head, especially one designed for infants, is the best choice for infants. Brushing at least once a day, at bedtime, will remove plaque bacteria that can lead to decay.

How safe are dental X-rays?2019-04-25T11:31:23-04:00

With contemporary safeguards, such as lead aprons and high-speed film, the amount of radiation received in a dental X-ray examination is extremely small. Even though there is very little risk, pediatric dentists are particularly careful to minimize the exposure of child patients to radiation. In fact, dental X-rays represent a far smaller risk than an undetected and untreated dental problem.
