Frequently Asked Questions About Our Westside, NM Area Pediatric Dental Practice
Should my child see a pediatric dentist?
When it comes to caring for children’s teeth and gums, pediatric dentists are the specialists. Just like other dentists, pediatric dentists graduate from dental school with a DMD or DDS degree, but only dentists go on to receive two to three additional years of education and training focused on the unique dental needs of children and patients with special needs.
When should children start seeing the dentist?
The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry both recommend that all children start seeing the dentist around their first birthday or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth.
How can I strengthen my child’s teeth?
Some of the best ways to strengthen your child’s teeth are regular fluoride treatments, brushing with a fluoride toothpaste, and making sure they eat a balanced diet that limits sugary foods and beverages and has plenty of calcium, protein, whole grains, and produce.
Is it safe to put a child to sleep for dental work?
Our Westside area office only offers nitrous oxide sedation, which means your child will be awake during their treatment. If your child has special needs or requires extensive dental work, we can perform dental procedures in a hospital setting with an anesthesiology team, which is the safest way to have a child “sleep” through their treatment.
When should kids start getting dental x-rays?
We take an individualized approach when it comes to dental x-rays. Children who are at a high risk of tooth decay, potential orthodontic issues, or other areas of concern will need radiographs sooner than patients who don’t have any of these risk factors.
