Frequently Asked Questions About Our Northeast Heights, NM Area Pediatric Dental Practice
Does my child need to see a pediatric dentist?
Pediatric dentists are the specialists when it comes to taking care of children’s teeth. Like other dentists, pediatric dentists graduate from dental school with a DDS or DMD degree, but only pediatric dentists go on to receive two to three years of additional training focused exclusively on the dental needs of children and adolescents, which makes them the best choice for pediatric dental care.
When should children start seeing the dentist?
Both the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that children start seeing the dentist within six months of the eruption of their first tooth or by their first birthday.
How often do kids need to go to the dentist?
Kids, just like adults, need to see the dentist every six months for comprehensive oral evaluations and dental cleanings. These visits keep teeth healthy and strong and help your child feel comfortable at our office.
What sedation is used for pediatric dentistry?
Our Northeast Heights area office offers nitrous oxide sedation for pediatric patients. If your child has special needs or requires extensive dental work, we can perform dental procedures under general anesthesia at Presbyterian and Lovelace hospitals.
Do children need dental x-rays?
Unless there is a clear diagnostic or treatment-related need for x-rays, most children only need them every 12 to 24 months. When your child does need radiographs, rest assured that we use digital x-rays, which emit less radiation than traditional x-rays.
