Children Dentistry Q&A

What is children’s dentistry?

Children’s dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on addressing kids’ needs from infancy through adolescence. While all dentists receive training in pediatric dentistry, not all decide to shape their practice around working with kids. 


Children's dentistry at Get It Straight Orthodontics and Family Dentistry has been designed with the goal of providing outstanding care to people of all ages, and children’s dentistry has always been a central area of focus. 

Why bring my child to see a dentist if they don’t have dental problems?

Being a parent involves the seemingly endless juggling of tasks, obligations, and appointments. Finding time to come in for routine dental care can feel like one more item on the to-do list, and it’s tempting to postpone or overlook these visits when there are no clear dental problems to address. 


However, routine dental exams are an essential part of preventive dentistry, even for kids. Seeing the dentist every six months ensures that your child’s dentist detects any dental decay or gum health problems in the earliest possible stages.


Your child also has the chance to get to know their dentist and the rest of the staff. This makes it far less stressful to come in if a dental problem arises.  

What kinds of services are available within children’s dentistry?

Most of your child’s dental visits will fall under the category of preventive dentistry. These routine dental exams and professional cleanings are straightforward visits. The staff at Get It Straight Orthodontics and Family Dentistry work hard to make routine dental exams fun. 


Preventive dental care also includes treatments like fluoride application and dental sealants. Your child’s dentist discusses the pros and cons of treatments during dental exams. 


If a problem arises, restorative care is also available. Whether your child needs a filling, crown, extraction, or other treatment, services are provided in a way that is soothing and as painless as possible. 


Children’s braces are also available from Get It Straight Orthodontics and Family Dentistry. Your dentist will let you know if early orthodontic treatment is a good option for your child.
