  • What does pediatric dentistry include?

    Pediatric dentistry includes comprehensive oral health care for children from infancy through their teenage years. Services encompass:

    • Preventive dental care, including cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants to protect against decay.
    • Early assessments for straightening teeth and correcting an improper bite (orthodontics) and bite corrections.
    • Diagnosis and treatment of dental diseases and conditions such as cavities, dental infections, and gum diseases.
    • Management of dental injuries (e.g., fractured, displaced, or knocked-out teeth).
    • Habit counseling for issues like thumb sucking and pacifier use.
    • Nutritional advice tailored to promote healthy dental development and prevent cavities.

    At Westhill Dental, we strive to make each visit educational, engaging, and fun, encouraging kids to take an active role in their dental health.

  • What are the common issues of dental health in children?

    Common dental health issues in children include:

    • Cavities: The most prevalent childhood disease, often due to poor oral hygiene and high sugary diet.
    • Gum disease (gingivitis): Characterized by red, swollen gums that may bleed easily.
    • Dental emergencies: Such as injuries from sports or play resulting in chipped, broken, or knocked-out teeth.
    • Thumb sucking and pacifier use: This can affect the proper growth of the mouth and alignment of the teeth if prolonged.
    • Teething: Can cause discomfort as primary teeth erupt through the gums.

    Early and regular visits to Westhill Dental can help prevent and address these issues, ensuring your child maintains optimal oral health.

  • What causes cavities in kids?

    Cavities in children are primarily caused by:

    • Poor oral hygiene: Not brushing or flossing adequately allows plaque to build up, leading to tooth decay.
    • Frequent snacking on sugary or starchy foods and drinks: Provides food for bacteria in the mouth, producing acids that attack tooth enamel.
    • Not getting enough fluoride: Which helps make teeth more resistant to the acids that cause cavities.
    • Insufficient dental care: Delaying or avoiding professional dental cleanings and exams can allow cavities to develop and grow.

    At Westhill Dental, we emphasize the importance of regular dental check-ups, proper brushing and flossing techniques, and a balanced diet to protect children from cavities and promote a healthy smile.
