Pediatric dentistry deals with the oral health of children. The American Dental Association acknowledges pediatric dentistry a specialty, subsequently requiring dentists to effectuate two or three years of special training after graduating a general dentistry school.
Pediatric dentists are specially trained to offer a friendly, fun and comfortable atmosphere when examining children.
Since dental phobias start in childhood and many times go on into adulthood, it is extremely important that children have a positive experience with the dentist, therefore being able to find their “dental home” as soon as possible.
What does pediatric dentistry deal with?
Similarly to general dentistry, pediatric dentistry deals with the oral hygiene and the tooth health. Family dentists, though, focus on the unique requirements of children of all ages.
Some of the services provided by our pediatric dentist include:
- Dental examinations;
- Dental cleanings;
- Tooth extractions;
- Occlusal mouth guards;
- Other types of services. Our dentist in Agoura Hills can provide further details on what these other services consist of.
