There are many benefits to having a pediatric dentist and orthodontist in the same office. From their first dentist visit to the time they get their braces off (should they need braces), they will see the same faces and have a strong rapport with the dentists, orthodontists, and staff. Read on to see how pediatric could benefit you, even if you don’t have a child!
When you choose Burleson Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry, you know that the staff is often working with timid, shy, and nervous children that need extra care. You can expect if you see orthodontist, Dr. Burleson for your orthodontic needs, you will be treated with the utmost care, even if you are nervous about getting braces.
Additionally, pediatric dentists understand that the mouths of the children they see are smaller. Smaller mouths require smaller tools. Also, the tools can look quite scary (and pointy!) to a small child, so the staff at Burleson Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry exercises gentle care when working with their patients.
It is recommended when your baby’s teeth begin to break through the gums to bring them in for their first visit. This often means their first visit should occur before their first birthday! Even though their teeth are small and fairly spaced, food particles can still get trapped between the teeth and gums, potentially leading to tooth decay and gum disease later on in life!
