How can a pediatric dentist help your child?
Kids can develop cavities and tooth decay quite fast because the primary teeth are sensitive and need special attention. Therefore, some visits to the pediatric dentist are necessary if the child is one-year-old. Our Dubai dentist is specialized in children dentistry and can perform specific examinations, in order to see the status of the teeth and if particular treatments are necessary. As we all know, children eat lots of sweets or inappropriate food from time to time and it is quite hard for parents, but not impossible, to control their habits. These unsuitable behaviors lead to bad oral care and eventually decay which develops extremely fast.
In this situation, the pediatric dentist will use the same methods and materials as for adult patients, with some differences of approach. For instance, it is quite important for the dentist to adjust the voice and to adopt a friendly manner, in order to properly communicate with the child and to release him from anxiety and fear. Little kids are extremely sensitive and can cry in a moment if they aren’t in their comfort zone. The pediatric dentist in Dubai will take into consideration the emotional status of the little patient, will offer positive reinforcement and will explain in a simple manner every detail related to the dental treatment, in order to build the necessary trust.
Healthy habits for the kids’ strong teeth
As we mentioned before, bad diet habits lead to tooth decay and many other dental problems. In order to avoid such issues, it is recommended to periodically visit the dentist and to consider his significant recommendations. First of all, the parents are in charge of the little ones’ diet and oral care. The market offers funny and useful products for kids, like special toothbrushes with their favorite cartoon character and toothpaste with fruits flavor instead of powerful mint. The parents are the ones who will teach the child how to brush and to clean the teeth and it is recommended for them to make the entire process together because the kid will always learn the same habits from his mother or father.
Besides adopting a proper method to teach the kid how to take care of the teeth, it is recommended to make regular visits to the dentist who will offer certain treatments to prevent bacteria, decay and to eliminate the dental plaque. These are the standard procedures available for children and if the pain will be felt, the dentist will make local anesthesia after some important blood tests. As for the parents, we advise them to adopt a healthy diet for their children and to add fruits and vegetables like carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, peas, beans, olives, bananas, apples, pears and oranges.
