Pediatric Dentistry Q&A

by Gregory D. Kuo, DDS, MS

What is pediatric dentistry and what can we expect on our first visit?

Pediatric dentistry is a specialized area of dentistry that uses modified general dentistry procedures to provide therapeutic, preventive, and primary dental care to infants, children, and adolescents.

Pediatric dentists are specially trained to care for the gums, teeth, and mouths of their patients and to educate their parents about good oral health and the prevention of diseases.

On your child’s first visit, Dr. Kuo asks some basic questions about your child’s dental hygiene habits. Then he conducts an examination to check for any signs of decay or gum disease.

Dr. Kuo and the rest of the team make every effort to make kids comfortable during their visits, and to build a bond of trust that extends for many years to come.

What are some common pediatric dental procedures?

Pediatric dentists provide a wide range of exams, treatments, and procedures that can keep your child’s teeth healthy.

They perform infant oral health exams to assess your child’s risk for cavities, and they provide habit counseling that addresses the dental health of children who use pacifiers or suck their thumbs. They also offer preventive care in the form of routine cleanings and fluoride treatments that protect your child’s teeth from the formation of cavities.

Pediatric dentists repair cracked or broken teeth, remove cavities, and repair defects. They can also manage gum diseases, and other oral conditions diagnose. They even diagnose and treat oral conditions that may occur as a result of congenital heart defects, diabetes, asthma and other disorders.

Why is pediatric dentistry so important?

Even healthy-looking baby teeth need dental care. Dental examinations at an early age can determine whether your child’s teeth are free of decay and developing correctly. A thorough pediatric dentistry exam also reveals signs of deterioration; a condition can be addressed promptly before considerable damage occurs.
