What is a Pediatric Dentist?
Reynolds Dentistry is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.
Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. By age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by secondary, permanent teeth. Without proper dental care, children face possible oral decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Today, early childhood dental caries—an infectious disease—is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever.
Children are not just small adults. They are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a dental exam. We know how to examine and treat children in ways that make them comfortable. In addition, we use specially designed equipment in offices that are arranged with children in mind.
Reynolds Dentistry offers a wide range of treatment options, as well as expertise and training to care for your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth. When we suggest that your child receive a dental exam, you can be assured that a pediatric dentist will provide the best possible care.
