The Science Behind Pediatric Care

Pediatric Dental Care is an important part of child development. It manifest in many different ways. One of the main is Pediatric Dental caries, which is the presence of one or more decayed (non-cavitated or cavitated lesions), missing (due to caries), or filled tooth surfaces in children with 12 months age old and mostly in young children. It a chronic disease causes severe tooth ache. It is a virulent form of caries, beginning soon after dental eruption, develops smooth surfaces and lasting detrimental impact on the dentition.

Later on as they grow, in case your child does require Invisalign or braces, they’re not alone. Almost 75% of all teens and children have some type of dental problem where they’ll require orthodontic care. When you first notice your child has crooked permanent teeth coming in, you may begin wondering if they’ll need braces. If they do, you’ll be happy to know there have been considerable advancements with orthodontic treatment, providing your child with more choices.  Anyone who has had braces knows they work. But, the question here is, “Does my kid really need braces?” Make an appointment with our orthodontist team for a complimentary orthodontics consultation.

A vital step in your child’s oral health routine is flossing. We hope our patients at Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics maintain good oral hygiene, including daily flossing between each visit to our Goodyear, Surprise and Verrado offices. A toothbrush is not always enough to get to the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. When food remains between your teeth, bacteria starts to grow and will break down your enamel. This is where flossing comes in!

Whether your adorable infant has just gotten their first “baby” tooth or your teenager is ready for orthodontic treatment as they’re filling out college applications, the team at Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics can’t wait to get started! We offer an extensive menu of services that covers smiles at every age range, as well as calming sedation for our most anxious patients and even dedicated special needs care.
