Importance of Pediatric Dentist

Posted by Stonewall Dental Associates on Oct 7 2021, 04:10 AM

From the moment your child starts teething, they need special care for their specific dental requirements. Pediatrics is a distinct branch of dentistry specializing in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of oral health issues in infants, children, and adolescents. 

The pediatric dentistry services we offer at Stonewall Dental Associates in Manassas, Virginia, also focus on educating children and parents about the benefits of maintaining their oral health for their overall well-being and firmly believe that the foundation of excellent oral health is proper oral care. That is why Dr. Sana Nasir, an experienced pediatric dentist, supports parents every step of the way to instill good oral habits in their children from a young age.

What Does a Pediatric Dentist Do?

Early intervention in the oral habits of children can go a long way in preventing major dental problems and maintaining their dental health. While pediatric dentists have the expertise to treat all kinds of dental issues, their main aim is to prevent the dental issues children most often suffer from. 

Some of the pediatric dental treatments and procedures offered by Dr. Nasir at Stonewall Dental include:

  • Preventive Dental Care

Regular dental exams are efficient in ensuring that your children’s teeth are in perfect condition. During these regular checkups, Dr. Nasir will examine the teeth, gums, throat, neck, and face for any abnormalities. Thus, if there are any issues, treatment can be started at once, before they develop into anything serious. 

Regular dental cleanings also help prevent dental problems by removing bacteria buildup in the mouth. Apart from cleanings and checkups, Dr. Nasir also offers fluoride treatment to protect enamel against decay and cavities. 

  • Early Detection and Treatment 

Dr. Nasir recommends you schedule your child’s first dental checkup within six months of their first tooth appearing because even though baby teeth are not permanent, they can have long-term effects on permanent teeth. 

By closely monitoring the growth and development of the child’s teeth and gums, we will be able to detect any abnormalities in their structure, shape, or alignment. 

In such cases, quick intervention and starting corrective treatment early ensures that the result is permanent and effective. 

  • Oral Health Education

Maintaining excellent oral health requires continuous contribution from both parents and children. At Stonewall Dental Associates, we take particular care to educate parents and kids about the significance of following proper oral hygiene and health care habits. 

From hygiene routines to prevention methods and tooth-friendly eating habits. Dr. Nasir will advise parents on tips that can help with their children’s dental care.
