Children are important at Archer Dental because good dentistry is important for children. Pain free and stress free dental care, even more than than adults, is central to their health and emotional well being. Pediatric dentistry focuses on children from birth through adolescence. During these formative years, it’s critical that your child be comfortable with their pediatric dentist and hygiene team.
Archer Dental aims to promote the dental health of your children and educate the parents on dental resources available for children. It is recommended that a child see a dentist within six months of their first tooth or their first birthday, whichever comes first. Dental professional are always searching for any sign of tooth decay, and these early oral examinations are a big help. The Archer Dental team help parents maintain their children’s oral health, modify behaviour before they become bad habits and provide simple treatments as needed. Our team will work with both the parent and the child to teach them the proper techniques while brushing and flossing.
What is a Pediatric Dentist?
Paediatrics is heath care and medicine for infants, children, and youth under eighteen years of age. Medical doctors who specializes in this area is known as a pediatricians, or paediatricians. The word pediatrics and its cognates mean “healer of children”; they derive from two Greek words: παῖς (pais “child”) and ἰατρός (iatros “doctor, healer”). Pediatric or Paediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy all through their teenage years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.
Most children get their first tooth during the first six months of life. By age six, they’re already beginning to lose their first teeth, which eventually are replaced by permanent teeth. Without proper dental care, children can suffer tooth decay which can complicate their smiles for life.
