What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric Dentistry is the area of dentistry focused on dealing with childrens dental health from infancy to adolescence.
Why is Children’s Dentistry Important?
Your children’s teeth are incredibly vital to their oral health for years to come.
At New Hampshire Family Dentistry, we work hard to dispel the myth that your child’s baby teeth don’t matter since they will eventually fall out. On the contrary, the treatment and health of baby teeth pave the way for your child’s dental health for their entire life.
Poor oral hygiene can cause damage once permanent teeth start coming in. That’s why we encourage parents to take their children’s dental appointments seriously. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry urges your child visit a dentist within his/her first 6 months to 1 year. This way, we can monitor your child’s oral health and ensure proper placement and fit of permanent teeth.
Pediatric Dentistry Services
At our office, we offer a wide range of pediatric services in order to maintain the oral health of your children.
During every routine dental check up, Dr. Mandera will examine your child’s teeth and gums and pinpoint any problem areas. We also teach proper brushing and flossing techniques. Our fluoride rinse will help to strengthen the enamel of the teeth.
- Fillings/crowns– When a cavity is detected, our dentist will safely and gently remove bacteria and provide basic services such as filings or crowns in order to restore your child’s tooth.
- Pulpotomy– In the event of an infected tooth root/nerve, the decay is gently removed with a pulpotomy.
- Orthodontics– at the age of 6 to 7 (when permanent teeth begin to come in) our dentist will examine placement of teeth to evaluate orthodontic needs. We can also provide digital X-rays of your child’s incoming and existing teeth.
