Children have special oral health needs to ensure they enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Dr. Tram is skilled in pediatric dentistry techniques to help children and teens get the best care for all their dental needs, from routine cleanings to wisdom teeth extractions to Invisalign and more.
Pediatric dentistry is the area of dentistry that's focused on caring for the oral health needs of children and teens whose teeth and jaws are still developing. The childhood and teen years are critical for establishing good oral health habits, including evaluations, care and treatment that can help provide a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Dentists who offer pediatric services are experienced in the oral health issues of children and teens, so they can provide skilled guidance and care that's attuned specifically to those needs.
Absolutely. Baby teeth can still become decayed and the gums can become infected, causing pain and discomfort as well as interfering with eating and speaking. Plus, although they'll eventually fall out, your child's baby teeth play an important role in the development of their adult teeth and their oral health and development in general. When decay and infection aren't treated promptly, it can have an effect on the adult teeth that haven't yet emerged. Having routine dental visits helps ensure your child's teeth and gums stay healthy, plus it enables the dentist to identify any emerging issues in their earliest stages to avoid having them develop into major problems later. Early intervention can also play an important role in ensuring teeth come in as straight as possible.
Having your child screened early – ideally during the first year of age and throughout the preschool years – is the best way to identify crowding and occlusion issues so interventional treatment can be provided while the jaw is still growing. In many cases, early intervention may avoid the need for prolonged and more costly treatment later.
