Pediatric Dentist Jackson MS

Why Choose The Pediatric Dental Studio Over Other Pediatric Dental Offices In Jackson and Pearl Mississippi?

General dentists do not uniformly receive training in care of special patients and children in general, although some may have had additional training after dental school encompassing patients with special healthcare needs. Pediatric dentists are also more likely to have affiliations with hospitals and established relationships with pediatricians and other child specialists, which creates a network of health professionals dedicated to your child’s well being.

It’s also important to choose a pediatric dentist that has sought additional voluntary certifications by the Board of Pediatric Dentistry. These dentists have completed additional hours of training and studies to prepare them to educate families and identify specialized treatment that many general dentists may not recognize.

    What is the difference between a Pediatric Dentist and a General Dentist?

    Pediatric Dentist Pearl Ms

    Training   |   Equipment   |   Experience

    Although general dentists often treat children, this does not mean that they are pediatric dentists. Pediatric dentists are different from other dentists in that they specialize in children’s dentistry. Pediatric dentists are more qualified than other dental professionals to work with children specifically, just like periodontists and orthodontists.

    What Makes a Pediatric Dentist In Jackson MS Different?

    Training

    Pediatric dentists must also have a bachelor’s degree from an approved university before they can start dental school. All dentists should have some knowledge of general dentistry. Dentists have two options after graduation: they can either start a practice or residency right away or pursue a specialization. A 2- to 3-year program is required for pediatric dentists. They learn techniques and skills to help children. This program provides extensive, in-depth knowledge about common dental problems for children such as thumb sucking and fluorosis, tooth decay, tongue thrusting, and “shark teeth”, among others.

    Equipment

    Pediatric dentists in Pearl MS treat children of all ages and have tools that are suitable for every stage of their lives, from infanthood to young adulthood. Too large and uncomfortable dental appliances can make it difficult for children to sit still while they have their dental exam and cleaning. However, pediatric dentists have the right equipment for children! Even the youngest patients can benefit from their tools. They can also show parents how to clean baby’s mouths using finger brushes or tongue cleaners.

    Pediatric dentists are also dedicated to children’s dentistry. This means that their office and staff are child-friendly. Pediatric dentists are known for using bright colors and characters in the clinic to make children feel at ease. Both the admin and dental hygiene staff are trained to communicate with parents and children in a pleasant and understandable way. New Generation Dentistry in Mission Viejo provides headphones so that children can listen to music and watch TV while they are being treated. It is a huge difference to not hear the dreadful sound of drilling during your next dental appointment.

    Experience

    Pediatric dentists have to complete a 2- or 3-year specialty program. This gives them a lot of experience working with different types of patients. They have the ability to communicate and manage behavior with even the most difficult children. Pediatric dentists are able to communicate with their patients and teach them how to keep healthy, strong teeth.

    Pediatric dentists also have the ability to assess whether children’s jawbones and teeth are growing properly. They can refer your child’s problem to a children’s dentist who can correct it before it becomes more serious. Many pediatric dentists can also treat special needs patients.

    Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist In Pearl MS Over a General Dentist?

    Each family is unique and choosing the right dentist for you will depend on your individual needs. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions for your family’s overall dental health. However, pediatric dentists can offer many benefits for children. A specialist can diagnose and treat children’s dental problems. This could make a huge difference in their lives. You can rest assured that your child’s oral health is in good hands with a pediatric dentist.

    Pediatric dentists in Jackson or Pearl Mississippi are not only skilled and equipped to care for your child’s needs, but they also love children. A compassionate, caring pediatric dentist will do everything possible to establish a positive relationship between your child and the dentist. This will ensure that your child continues to have a positive association with them for many years. Children could develop anxiety about their teeth and avoid seeking treatment as adults if there is no foundation of trust. It is crucial to establish a dental home that has a reliable and consistent provider to ensure healthy teeth throughout life, from childhood to young adulthood.

    Infants & Toddlers

    Foundational Dental Care for Infants and Toddlers

    The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends scheduling your child's first dental examination as soon as their first tooth is visible. It should also be done no later than the first birthday. Good dental hygiene is essential right from the beginning. Your child's baby teeth assist him/her in speaking clearly, chewing properly, and allowing permanent teeth to surface correctly. Dr. Rose has extensive knowledge and many professional hours working with infants/toddlers and can help care for your child’s oral health.
