Pediatric Dentistry Q & A

What is a pediatric dentist?

A pediatric dentist is focused on oral care of children, from infants to teens. Pediatric dentists spend 2-3 years after dental school in specialty training. They’re experts in childhood dentistry.

Pediatric dentists emphasize the oral health of infants, children, and adolescents. They focus on education and helping kids establish healthy oral care routines that will benefit them throughout their lives.

The pediatric dentist works with parents to promote healthy habits as well. The team can answer questions about growing mouths that often include cavities, pacifier use or thumb sucking, and how to properly brush and floss a child’s teeth.

How is pediatric dentistry different?

Kids have different oral health care needs than adults. Babies usually get their first teeth before their first birthday. By 3, most kids have grown in all 20 of their baby teeth. Between 6 and 12, kids lose their baby teeth and permanent teeth replace them.

Pediatric dentists help kids maintain the health of their teeth as their mouths grow. The pediatric dentist is an expert at identifying potential issues early on and making recommendations like orthodontics to keep kids’ mouths functioning well.

Tribeca Dental Studio 4 Kids (TDS4Kids) features an entire floor dedicated to pediatric dentistry. With a separate check-in desk and kid-focused amenities, TDS4Kids puts kids and parents at ease. The fun, interactive play area helps teach kids about the importance of healthy teeth and gums.

How often should my child go to the dentist?

Children should go to the dentist as soon as their first tooth appears and no later than their first birthday. In general, the team recommends checkups every six months to prevent cavities and monitor changes in your child’s mouth.
