Pediatric Dentistry in Coquitlam

Pediatric dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses specifically on caring for the oral health of children from the infant stage to adulthood. Family-oriented dentists often offer pediatric dental services to accommodate clients with children. Pediatric dentists know how to guide patients through the development of the mouth as adult teeth come in and the jaw grows. They are excellent at treating dental issues in children.

Helping Children Grow

Before reaching adulthood, children’s mouths go through significant growth and development. Their baby teeth pop up, fall out, and adult teeth start pushing through. All the while, their faces and jaws are growing. They need to learn how to take care of their teeth to prevent cavities and promote lifelong healthy habits. Pediatric dentists can guide children and parents through this process and raise flags if something is abnormal.

Why are Baby Teeth Important?

Even though baby teeth fall out naturally, it’s important to take good care of them. It creates good habits for later in life and prevents complications as a result of decay. Serious tooth decay could cause infections and require medical attention. Further, if there are issues with a child’s bite, those may need to be dealt with at a young age.
