Pediatric dentistry diagnoses and treats oral health problems in children and teens. Specifically, it combines oral exams, digital X-rays, patient education, and preventive measures (like teeth cleaning) to reduce the risk of cavities, gum disease, and other issues.
Many children experience dental fear and anxiety. Visiting the dentist at an early age can relieve these fears and educate them on the importance of routine check-ups.
At Allure Dental of Hollywood, Dr. Valdman offers a variety of pediatric dental services, including:
An oral exam assesses the condition of your child’s teeth, gums, tongue, and cheeks. During an exam, Dr. Valdman looks for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. If he discovers anything out of the ordinary, he can order additional testing, like a biopsy.
Teeth cleaning removes plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria from your child’s teeth and beneath their gums. After cleaning your child’s teeth, Dr. Valdman polishes them, flosses them, and applies a fluoride treatment to reduce the risk of cavities.
Digital X-rays capture photos of your child’s tooth roots and jaw. Dr. Valdman uses X-rays to detect underlying medical concerns, like cavities, inflamed tooth pulp, or impacted wisdom teeth.
Invisalign is an advanced type of orthodontic treatment that uses removable, orthodontic appliances to straighten your teeth and jaw. The process is quicker and more comfortable than traditional metal braces.
If your child develops a toothache due to oral trauma or a cavity, Dr. Valdman might recommend a root canal. During a root canal, he removes the pulp from the center of your child’s tooth and fills it with a rubbery material called gutta-percha. That process preserves your tooth, preventing the need for an extraction.
If your child regularly experiences cavities, Dr. Valdman might recommend dental sealants. Sealants are plastic coverings that envelope your child’s teeth. They prevent harmful bacteria from accessing the enamel, reducing the risk of decay.
Dr. Valdman recommends scheduling a pediatric dentistry appointment for your child as soon as they turn one or get their first baby tooth –– whichever comes first. Regular dental check-ups from an early age can catch potentially serious issues early on when they respond best to treatment.
