In general, pediatric dentistry uses the same techniques as adult dentistry. However, there are some important distinctions between these two types of care. For one, much of the equipment pediatric dentists use is smaller as to fit the size of a child’s mouth. Utilizing this specialized equipment makes for a more comfortable experience in the dentist’s chair for children of all ages. Pediatric dentists also focus much more on the educational aspect of the visit. We’ll be sure to explain best practices for oral hygiene, even giving tutorials on how to floss thoroughly. While all of our dentists are committed to fostering a friendly, relaxing environment for patients, our pediatric team puts an even greater emphasis on creating a comforting, nurturing place for children.
