Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

Why is pediatric dentistry important?

Children’s teeth aren’t just small versions of adult teeth. Children have specific oral health care needs that require a pediatric dentistry specialist. 

Young patients benefit from learning proper oral hygiene habits, like regular brushing and flossing. 

At Atalla Medical Group, our team offers support in the case of dental emergencies. 

The pediatric dentistry services at Atalla Medical Group feature tools and equipment appropriate for a child’s mouth and their dental pediatric treatment. The providers create a fun and welcoming atmosphere for youngsters. 

Do children really need dental care?

Baby teeth serve as a foundation for your child’s long-term oral health. Routine visits are necessary even if your child isn’t complaining of pain or tooth problems. They teach smart oral hygiene and make sure your child isn’t suffering from undetected decay. 

A child losing their teeth early can affect their speech and chewing abilities. A lack of proper care has long-term effects on your child’s dental habits and health. 

What services do you offer with pediatric dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry usually involves preventive care that includes routine exams and professional cleanings. X-rays and screenings for gum disease and cavities are part of this care. 

Early identification and treatment of cavities prevent extensive tooth damage and premature tooth loss. 

The team at Atalla Medical Group offers dental air abrasion, a painless and sedation-free way to remove cavities. Air abrasion applies tiny particles of silica or aluminum oxide at a rapid rate to the area of decay. The procedure blasts away the decay, getting the tooth ready for a tooth filling. Children do well with dental air abrasion because it doesn’t use a drill, which can be quite scary for young people. 

Your child also benefits from fluoride applications and dental sealants. If your child accidentally chips a tooth or needs a dental crown, the team at Atalla Medical Group can help, too.
