What should I look for when choosing a pediatric dentist?

As a parent, it is crucial to keep a constant check on your child's oral health. Here are some tips for finding the best pediatric dentist:

  1. Certificate and qualification - Be sure to take your child to a dentist that holds all the right credentials, training, and experience in pediatric dentistry. Check the reviews online for a dentist to learn about his expertise in treating children related dental problems.
  2. Location - Children can throw tantrums and can be extremely difficult when you tell them that you are taking them to a dentists' office. Look for an office closer to where you live to get the job done as quickly as possible.
  3. Good with children - You need to take your child to a doctor who knows how to handle kids. Make sure the doctor has a way around communicating with children that your child looks forward to her future dental appointments.

Besides, be sure to work with a dentist that uses the latest dental equipment and modern treatment methods for treating dental issues. Our pediatric dentist in Vancouver, Dr. Omar Kassam, is exceptionally good with children, and he uses the most advanced and pain-free approaches to treat dental issues in kids.

Common pediatric dental issues

Children are more vulnerable to dental problems when compared to adults. Tooth decay is a common problem in children, and it occurs as a result of bacteria and plaque acids attacking the tooth enamel. 

Similarly, if your child sticks to thumb sucking even after the development of permanent teeth, it can cause serious damage to your child's dental health. You need to check with a pediatric dentist to help your child overcome his/her thumb sucking problem. Furthermore, children are also more prone to gingivitis, bad breath, over-retained primary tooth, tooth grinding, etc. 

When should I take my child to the dentist?

You should take your child for his/her first dental visit by the time they turn one. This session is to educate parents on how to care for their baby's teeth. After that, you must take your kid for a dental visit once every six months between ages 2-4. Between ages 4 and 6, your doctor may use an x-ray to check for cavities lurking between their teeth.

After age 6, when the baby teeth fall off and give way to the permanent teeth, you must continue taking your child for regular dental visits at least twice a year. You should also take your child to a pediatric dentist whenever they suffer from cavities.
