Pediatric Dentistry: A Bright Smile for Kids

Habits that parents teach their children early in life help in their formative years and are going to be their guide in the future. Good oral hygiene practices are among the most useful habits to teach them. These practices even help in ensuring that the kids can grow with bright smiles and healthy teeth.

Many of the dentists in Philippines cater to the general public, providing oral health care to all ages. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but if you want your kids to be truly at ease in his or her visit to the dentist, a pediatric dentist is what you should try to find.

At Gerochi Dental and Implant Center, Doc Axel A. Trecho-Gerochi handles the little patients because pediatric dentistry is one of her fields of specialization. A lovely lady with a beautiful smile, the kids will be easily at ease with her during the consultation. When it comes to kids, it really is best that they are comfortable with their dentist so that they will cooperate, especially when some procedures may have to be performed, including oral prophylaxis, tooth extraction, and applying dental fillings in damaged teeth.

Doc Axel is a dentist in Makati who provides the finest care to kids and adults alike. The children will enjoy a visit to her clinic and won’t fear this smiling dentist.

What is Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentistry is simply the branch of dentistry dealing with children right from birth up to adolescence. Dentists specializing in this field not only treat their patients but also provide plenty of information to help promote dental health in children. More often than not, kids love sweets and would be ready to defy their parents just to sneak in a treat or two. That plus the fact that many kids also have bad oral hygiene habits are the reasons why a lot of kids can have damaged teeth even in the early years. By sending the kids to the clinic of a Makati dentist, Doc Axel can inform them of the benefits of good oral hygiene and provide advice on what foods to avoid and which ones to eat for healthier teeth.

Thankfully, even when young kids easily damage their teeth, they get a second chance once the milk teeth fall off. However, if they do not take care of the permanent teeth, these could soon follow the doomed path that the milk teeth experienced. After a visit to the dentist, the kids will have a better chance at following her advice and preventing premature loss and damage of their teeth.

Also, it is wonderful to truly put into practice the advice that the doc gave to the kids and their parents. Aside from brushing and flossing regularly, kids and adults alike should really try to visit the dentist every 6 months. This is for oral prophylaxis or teeth cleaning and to check on the status of individual teeth so that any minor damage can be treated immediately to prevent more serious damage and loss of teeth.
