A pediatric dentist smiling with his pediatric patient.

Henderson Pediatric Dentistry

A lifetime of beautiful smiles begins with outstanding oral healthcare habits created during childhood. Excellent dental care includes brushing, flossing, and regular dental treatment from a dentist. 

Parents know how important their child’s health is. Still, dental fear and dental anxiety are common obstacles standing in the way of their child’s dental health. One study of children ages six through 12 revealed 61% feared the dentist. Another study found approximately 67% of children and adolescents ages 11 through 18 had dental fear. 

At Absolute Dental, we understand that positive dental treatment experiences in childhood can make a lifetime difference in patients’ oral health. Our pediatric dentistry team creates a child-friendly environment where infants, children, and adolescents enjoy positive dental care experiences.

What Is The Difference Between Family Dentistry And Pediatric Dentistry?

Several types of dentists include family, general, and pediatric dentists. With so many dental professionals offering services, picking the right dentist for your child can be hard. Let’s look at the differences between these dentists.

General Dentists

General dentists focus on dental care for new adults and adults. Their patients are usually 18 or older. 

Family Dentists

A family dentist treats infants, children, teenagers, young adults, and adults of all ages. Family dentists can be an excellent option for continuity because your child can continue seeing their family dentist as they age.

Pediatric Dentists

Pedodontics is the dental field focused on children’s teeth. Pediatric dentists in this field treat infants, children, and adolescents. Childhood is a crucial time when children establish their dental health habits. Pediatric dentists guide them through teething, losing their baby teeth, and getting permanent teeth. Pediatric dentists teach children to care for their teeth, helping them prevent tooth decay.

Pediatric dentists also understand children. They know how to put children at ease and have resources to alleviate dental fear and anxiety so children have positive dental experiences.

What Is The Difference Between A Pediatric Dentist And An Orthodontist? 

Some notable differences exist between pediatric dentists and dental specialists, such as orthodontists. 

  • Orthodontists: Orthodontists treat patients of all ages. They use dental appliances to correct crooked teeth or eliminate gaps.
  • Pediatric dentists: Pediatric dentists focus on routine dental care for patients 18 and under, such as teaching children dental care habits, checking for cavities, and treating cavities.
  • Pediatric orthodontists: Pediatric orthodontics combines pediatric dentistry and orthodontic care. These orthodontists treat children and adolescents. Like orthodontists, Absolute Dental’s pediatric orthodontic team uses appliances to fix misaligned teeth.
