Comprehensive Dental Care for Your Child

Do you know some dentists specifically work as Pediatric dentists? A children’s dentist has qualifications and training to care about a child’s dental health. A pediatric dentist from Byford looks after the child’s oral health. 

What are the effects of poor oral hygiene on children?

It is high time that each parent or caregiver should start prioritizing their kid’s oral health. The effects of bad oral health in children are as follows:

  • Bad breath: When a kid fails to brush the teeth and floss them, small food particles stay behind, in between the teeth, leaving a pungent smell. This results in bad breath or halitosis.
  • Brain development: Bacteria formed in the mouth at times, traverse towards the brain. The brain then starts fighting the issues without concentrating on its development.
  • Lungs: The gum disease increases the risk of respiratory infections caused by the bacteria from the throat being inhaled into the respiratory tract.
  • Narrow blood vessels: When the bacteria in the mouth enter the blood through the gums, the blood flow is reduced. This affects the growth rate, decreases functionality, and reduces the blood flow to the vital organs.
  • Cavities: Cavities are the tooth decay that is represented by a hole in the teeth. It starts as small, but when unattended, it becomes big.

Are paediatric dentists necessary?

In general, dealing with children is quite complicated; it is even more complex when it comes to dental care. A pediatric dentist from Byford provides a safe, accurate, and harmless examination for kids to teens. They have the necessary experience to handle the kids using specially designed tools for kids and teens.

Along with creating a pleasant atmosphere for the kids, they know that children are not adults. Understanding this, they have different treatment methods and unique ideas to handle them. The children’s dentist advises the parents about the child’s oral health, i.e., brushing style, type of paste, and other lifestyle habits.


Frequently Asked Questions About Kids Dental Health

At what age should I take my child to the dentist?

The child's correct age to visit the pediatric dentist is around 1 year or when the child gets the first tooth. The first visit concentrates on educating the parents about how to care for a kid's oral health. After the first visit, it is good to undergo a check-up every 6 months unless it comes up.

Do Pediatric Dentists cost more?

Pediatric dentists do not cost a little more than the general dentist. But this does not matter much as they deal with the mischievous kids who are very difficult to tackle. So, the cost is not a factor to worry about.

Do Pediatric dentists take adults?

Of course, this would save time for the parents, as they could consult with the same dentist as their children, i.e., similar to the family doctor. Not every pediatric dentist will be willing to see the adults; some may treat adults while others redirect them to a general dentist.
