Pediatric Dentistry

At Prisma Dental we care for your family’s oral health, thus it is our aim to provide the best treatment and preventive care for you and your little ones as well.

Pediatric Dentistry is all about caring for children’s oral health, many of the oral health complications during adulthood can be easily tracked back to childhood.

Maybe a child was not taught how to brush his teeth correctly or he was lazy and skipped washing his teeth as many nights as possible resulting later in tooth damage which ended up in painful circumstances. We have surely heard of children who simply would not go to the dentist due to a negative experience which ended up scarring the child and convincing him that he should avoid dentists at all costs.

Luckily those days are over; Pediatric Dentistry fills in a gap of service which was not present back in the days. Pediatric Dentistry aims to treat children starting from their infancy until they reach adolescence. This specialization must not be taken lightly; the same way a Pediatrician must study a couple of years more after graduating from general medicine, the Pediatric Dentist must also extend their studies for a couple of years more.

Pediatric Dentists have deeply studied and practiced to recognize and treat the oral health needs of children. A professional in this field has a deep comprehension child psychology and behavior, has studied about growth and development and knows which are the new tendencies and techniques which will make the first visit of a child to the dentist less intrusive.

When children have the chance to visit a dentist who has specialized in the field of Pediatric Dentistry and receives a positive experience this will start a positive wave. They will encourage other kids to be open to visit their dentists more often, they will be more willing to collaborate with the correct practices that will ensure their oral health for life. Pediatric Dentists recommend to have your child´s first check at around 12 months old.
