Pediatric Dentistry

Children have different needs from adults, and this is especially true when it comes to dental health. One of the most important considerations when finding dental care for your kids is their fear of dentists. Many children are afraid of dentists because of the pain and discomfort they fear will be associated with dental care.

This is the reason why it’s important to bring your kids to a dentist who really specializes in pediatric dentistry. At Ace Dental in Roseville, our head dentist Dr. Karanvir Sibia, DDS, strives to provide the most comfortable and pain-free dental experience for all young patients.

Why Do Kids Need Pediatric Dentistry?

It’s a common misconception that children’s oral health isn’t as important as adults because eventually their permanent teeth will come in. However, the condition of their baby teeth can predict their oral health in adulthood.

Here are the reasons why you should bring your child to the dentist regularly:

  1. Early detection of oral problems. Although children don’t have permanent teeth yet, some oral problems can be seen at a young age such as malocclusion, weak tooth enamel, and tooth decay. By knowing your child’s most probable oral problems, it will be easier to plan treatment and prepare for future expenses.
  2. Petite fille contentePreservation of baby teeth. Baby teeth are essential for proper permanent tooth eruption and development. If your kids lose their baby teeth early, their permanent teeth may come out crooked, weak, and discolored. Regular trips to the dentist will help ensure that your child’s baby teeth will fall out naturally, and not early due to decay.
  3. Maintenance of healthy gums. When kids have tooth decay, their gums are also at risk of infection. Early tooth loss is a clear sign of gum disease in children, and this problem can continue into adulthood if not treated properly. Dental prophylaxis, patient education, and fluoride treatment can all keep your children’s gums healthy and free from infection. They will have a lower chance of losing teeth not just in their youth, but also in their older years.
  4. Prevention of cavities. Cavities are common in children because of their fondness for sweets and underdeveloped fine motor skills that affect their brushing abilities. These are the reasons why they should receive preventative treatments, such as dental sealants.
  5. Patient education. Children are naturally curious and they love to learn new things. When a dental professional teaches children the importance of oral health, this lesson is something they will take with them even in adulthood. Dental professionals are also the best teachers of proper dental care techniques, such as brushing and flossing.

Pediatric Dental Services

At Ace Dental in Roseville, we offer the following pediatric services:

Sealants

Children are at a high risk of developing tooth decay, but preventative measures, such as sealants can reduce this risk. Sealants are made of biocompatible materials such as resin, glass ionomer, or thermoplastic.

They come in liquid form which is applied into the deep grooves of the tooth. Once hardened, they can prevent the accumulation of food and bacteria in these grooves where cavities most commonly develop. Sealants are a great investment for children’s oral health, as compared to the costs of treatment that your kids will need if decay is allowed to set in.

Mouth Guards

If your kids play sports, especially those wherein close contact is inevitable, they will need mouth guards to protect their teeth and jaws, and even reduce the effects of concussion. Many athletes have experienced oral injuries because they were not wearing the proper protective gear.

Mouth guards are simple and comfortable plastic molds worn over the teeth. They are designed to block forces that can damage the teeth, hurt the tongue, or dislocate the jaws. There are several types of mouth guards, but custom-made models are the best for children.
