Dental problems are extremely common nowadays, and they need treatment by an expert dentist who can accurately diagnose and treat that problem. We all know that humans have two set of dentition – deciduous dentition, commonly known as baby teeth, and permanent teeth.
It’s important for children to take care of their deciduous dentition as the permanent teeth that follow are quite like their predecessors. If you don’t have cavities in your baby teeth, then there is a good possibility that you won't have cavities in your permanent teeth. However, we have to take many other factors have into consideration.
Since treating children requires dealing with not only the two sets of dentition but also the transition period (mixed dentition), special skills are required.
Dentists Who Understand Child Psychology
The main factor that keeps children away from dentists even when they are suffering from toothache is fear. The whole concept of going to a dentist sounds scary, and children are no different.
At PhD Dental Group, we are trained to understand children's psychology and treat them accordingly. This way the fear is warded off, and the attitude of the child becomes very positive towards dental treatment.
Use of Special Products
At times, what makes children averse to dental treatment is the products which dentists use inside the mouth like anesthetic sprays, ointments, and such products that are bitter to taste. So, the dental practitioners ensure flavored products are used inside the mouth to make the treatment more acceptable to the pediatric patient. Strawberry, cherry, and raspberry are some of the common flavoring agents used.
