All you have to do is watch television commercials to see the many products that are available to enhance a person’s smile before you can draw this simple conclusion: most adults wish they had a better smile. So, knowing what you know now about the importance of preventative dental care, wouldn’t you want to provide the best possible treatment for your little one? Keep reading to learn how Peak Dental in Pflugerville is equipped to care for your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout every stage of their childhood.
What makes a pediatric dentist better equipped to handle the oral care of children than a general dentist? While all dentists must complete at least four years of dental school, pediatric dentists complete an additional two years of residency training for dentistry for infants, children, teens, and children with special needs. Because of this specialized training, pediatric dentists are well equipped to examine and treat your child in the best possible way to make them feel comfortable. This is often enhanced with the use of equipment that’s specially designed equipment that children find less frightening than the equipment found in general dentistry offices. Also, most pediatric dentistry offices are decorated with a child in mind!
Preventative dentistry is just as important for children as it is for adults. In addition to providing early assessment for straightening teeth, your pediatric dentist can also provide counseling for issues such as excessive pacifier use and thumb sucking. And just as you’ve been warned as an adult about the perils of periodontal disease, this condition can also manifest in children. At Peak Dental we include screening for periodontal disease during every appointment.
Why not give your child the best chance to have a smile that will open doors for them and keep them healthy? When you choose Peak Dental as your child’s pediatric dentist, you can rest assured that we’ll protect your child’s smile for years to come!
