Pediatric dentists are professionals in addressing the distinctive needs of children. They normally study and complete an additional 2 to 3 years of specialty training aside from the regular years offered in dental school. There are times when they only limit their practice to treating the dental health concerns of children and infants through their adolescence. Thus, at Mint Dental in Lucknow, Dr. Atul Singh, look after the dental problems of little ones so that your child not only gets immediate treatment but also has a positive attitude towards his oral health and dentistry.

When you should introduce your child to Pediatric Dentist?
As soon as their first teeth start to come in! Not only will an early visit help the child feel comfortable at an early age with the experience, dentists can obtain plenty of information about long term oral health simply by watching a child’s first teeth come in.
The team at Mint Dental has spent years providing young children with gentle introductions to the experience of going to the dentist. This involves helping young children get used to the dentist’s chair, the electric toothbrush and other tools to ensure they feel confident and in control.
This type of introduction goes a long way towards ensuring that the child grows up without a fear of the dentist office, a fear that can be hard to shake later in life.
Some kids may not have their first visit to the dentist until something has gone wrong. A lost, broken or chipped tooth is traumatic enough for a young child, however, without adding to it the stress of a new, unfamiliar environment.
If that’s the start of the child’s relationship with the dentist, it can be difficult to make them comfortable in the dentist’s chair afterward.
Early-childhood proactive dental visits allow dentists to identify long-term issues before they worsen—and to offer preventative care. Dentists view baby teeth as a road map for permanent teeth and can sometimes even prevent major orthodontic treatments if they are able to detect potential trouble soon enough.
At Mint Dental, we use early visits as an opportunity to educate parents on how to care for their baby’s teeth and mouth. We always emphasize to the parents that even if your baby has only two teeth, it’s important to keep them clean and healthy.
