One of the best gifts that we can give our children is a great start to their dental health care. As adults, we are more aware of our diet and the effects that it can have on our teeth as we are the importance of good oral health care.
Our children on the other hand, are often too young to understand this and are likely to be afraid of the dentist, especially whilst they are very young. This is entirely understandable and also accentuates the importance of finding a good quality children’s dentist in London if possible.
Whilst teeth are ‘just’ teeth, a child is still continually growing and for some treatments different factors come into play such as the fact that the jaw of a child will still be growing so the use of dental implants, for example, is not suitable for a child as placing them whilst the jaw is still growing will cause facial problems later on in their life as they grow.
As well as having the skills and qualifications to perform dentistry on children though, the attitude and approach of a dentist is equally important. If a child can be ‘brought on board’ and accept their paediatric dentist and trust them, the chances of them attending their local dental practice regularly for their check ups and any treatments they may need are increased significantly. This will help to ensure that by the time they reach adulthood, their teeth will be in good condition and they will also be set into a routine of regular check ups which will enable any problem to be caught and treated early.
Paediatric dentistry is a unique field and deals not only with the psychology of children but also the different dental needs that they have. One of the most important roles that it plays though is in the field of education; explaining in clear and yet calm terms about the importance of taking care of their teeth from childhood. Both good and bad habits are often formed at a very early stage and therefore taking your child to a children’s dentist in London will get them off to a great start.
