Frequently Asked Questions About Our Bernalillo, NM Area Pediatric Dental Practice

What is the difference between a general dentist and a pediatric dentist?

General dentists and pediatric dentists have a lot in common. Both graduate from an accredited dental school with a DDS or DMD degree and both dedicate their careers to helping patients achieve good oral health. The difference between the two is that only pediatric dentists go on to receive two to three years of additional training focused exclusively on the unique dental needs of children and adolescents.

How often should children see the dentist?

Just like adults, children should see the dentist every six months for comprehensive oral evaluations and dental cleanings. Not only do these visits keep teeth healthy and strong, they also help kids feel more comfortable at our office.

What happens at a child’s first dental appointment?

The first dental appointment is all about establishing a relationship of trust and creating a “dental home” for your family at our dental practice. Of course, we’ll also examine your child’s teeth and gums during this visit and talk to you about good oral hygiene practices.

How do you prevent cavities in children?

Preventing cavities starts with good home care—brushing for two minutes twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and limiting sugary foods and drinks. Regular dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants are also effective strategies for preventing tooth decay.

Should I sedate my child for dental work?

Our Bernalillo area office offers nitrous oxide sedation for our patients, which is a safe, mild form of sedation that wears off fast and has a long track record of safety. If your child is nervous about their procedure, nitrous oxide can help them relax while still remaining awake and aware of their surroundings.
