Our pediatric dentist is specially trained to diagnose, prevent and treat all issues that could affect your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout their growing years. Dr. Roy not only provides preventative dental care, but also handlesany orthodontic care that is needed. This includes braces and aligners.
Orthodontic treatment is especially helpful if your child is experiencing misalignment or issues with their smile. Braces help straighten the teeth, making the patient feel better about their appearance while assisting them to improve their dental health.
In addition to providing orthodontic care for children, our pediatric dentist also focuses on oral hygiene education and diet counseling to help their patients make healthy choices regarding their oral health. At Roy Dental, our dentist educates parents about proper home hygiene techniques and tips to help their children maintain a beautiful and healthy smile into adulthood.
Common Dental Problems Children Face
While baby teeth eventually fall out and are replaced by adult ones, they are still critically important to a child’s development. Children with healthy teeth and gums are more able to eat more nutritious foods and are less likely to develop other health problems.
Your child should visit our pediatric dentist around their first birthday. At that appointment, you and our dentist can discuss the child’s needs and the care plan to address those needs. Our dentist may find tooth decay or infection and could treat these issues immediately. If left untreated, these problems could result in pain, difficulty eating, poor school performance, speech development issues, and other complications.
Other common dental conditions that can affect young children include mouth breathing, thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, and other conditions that cause improper alignment of the teeth and jaws. Early intervention can prevent bite issues and malocclusions (misaligned bites).
The Benefits of Visiting Our Pediatric Dentist
Children who regularly visit our pediatric dentist enjoy healthier teeth and gums. This is because the regular, consistent dental care we provide can help keep our young patients from getting tooth decay and disease. Moreover, we are able to detect and treat problems such as misalignment early to avoid future complications.
