Do you ever wonder why you should take your child to a pediatric dentist rather than a traditional dentist? If so, our dental team will be more than happy to tell you why. A pediatric dentist has specialized in pediatric dentistry, which is a branch of dentistry that focuses solely on the smiles of infants, children, teens, and children with special needs. A pediatric dentist knows exactly how to make your child feel comfortable in the dental chair and how to help your child grow into the strong and healthy smile they deserve.
Fortunately, our dentist, Dr. Greg Weeder, offers an array of pediatric dental treatments to help your child. Those treatments include dental cleanings, oral health exams, preventive dental treatments, restorative dental treatments, the management of oral tissues, habit counseling, early assessment and treatment for misaligned teeth, and more. With the help of pediatric dentistry, your child can have a successful oral health and a top-notch smile.
As you may already know, it’s recommended to bring your child into the dental office by the time they are 1 year old. This will help your child become familiar in the dental chair, help our dentist make sure your child’s smile is on track, and help you ask any questions you have about caring for your child’s smile.
For more information and details about pediatric dentistry, or to schedule an appointment for your child at Weeder Pediatric Dentistry, please call (402) 932.1177 when you can and talk to a member of our dental team. We will be glad to help you!
