What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is a specialty that caters to children of all ages. Your child’s baby teeth break through their gums around six months old and begin to loosen and come out at age 6 or 7. Their permanent teeth then come in. As these rapid changes happen, your child’s risk of developing cavities and gum disease rises. The experienced team has special training and qualifications to care for your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth to give your child a bright oral health future.
