Pediatric Dentistry

Our Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. If the milk teeth are well looked after, then it is more likely that the second (permanent) teeth will grow into their correct position. Did you know that babies in utero have about 20 teeth already developing? Children’s teeth begin forming before birth. As early as 4 but usually at 6-7 months, the first milk teeth to erupt are the lower central incisors, followed closely by the upper central incisors. Although 20 milk teeth usually appear by age 3, the pace and order of their eruption varies. The first permanent tooth is usually one of the four six year- molars –so named because they appear around age 6. Molars are important because they help shape the lower.

A word of caution : The 6 year permanent molars are often mistaken as milk teeth & neglected. Permanent second molars usually appear around age 12. At that time, your child will have a complete set of teeth except for the wisdom teeth or third molars which usually appear between age 17 and 25. Special attention should be paid to your child’s teeth during the teen years, as it is during these years that most decay occurs.

Who is a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists are also called as pedodontists. They are trained specialists to treat dental issues in children and teenagers. Pediatric dentists will have to complete a program which is about treating the children who needs an extra care and gentleness. This program duration is about two to three years after completing the dental course.

Cavities are the most common issue faced by more than 50% of the children. These dentists are skilled to analyse the issue that can harm gums, teeth and jaw as the children grow. They also study child psychology to understand children and make them comfortable. A child can become more anxious around unknown people. Pediatric dentists are trained to handle such situations.

At Beyondsmiles dental clinic in Indiranagar we recommend dental check-up once in 6 months for your growing child. Our paediatric dentists are updated with the latest technology used for the children’s dental issues.

A child develops primary teeth anywhere between 6 months to 9 months. These baby teeth will be replaced by permanent teeth once the kid reaches the age of six or seven. Proper dental care can stop the decay and other gum issues which can last a lifetime.
