It's important to take care of your oral health from any early age to prevent future problems occurring. Paediatric dentists guide children’s dental growth and development and help avoid future dental problems.
Preventive care is extremely important for children. Taking control of a child’s dental health before issues escalate is crucial. Visiting a paediatric specialist as early as 6 months of age can be beneficial to a child’s future oral health.
Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify bad habits, and treat issues as easily as possible. Paediatric dentists aim to make a child’s first visit to the dentist enjoyable. They enjoy working with children, and bring their expertise in childhood development and behaviour to each patient they see.
Paediatric dentists continue their education with an additional two to three years or more of training, including anaesthesia, pharmacology and child physiology, which allows them to provide the most up-to-date and thorough treatment, for a wide variety of children's dental problems.
Paediatric dentistry has been around for hundreds of years. It is an extremely important part of dentistry as it sets children up for good oral health from an early age.
Paediatric dentists are highly skilled at working with children and taking care of their oral health. Many people choose to get their children started with a paediatric dentist from a young age to make sure their dental health is taken care of early and help prevent future issues.
Paediatric dentists are trained to treat children with anxiety, disabilities and other special needs. They are also trained to use oral and general anaesthesia for children. They will provide an individualised treatment tailored specifically for each child.
It's so important to take care of your oral health from a young age. We recommend visiting a paediatric dentist as young as 6 months old, or as soon as the first teeth appear.
