What makes children teeth different from an adult?

Children’s teeth can be composed of two sets of teeth. The first set of teeth, known as baby or primary teeth, appears at six months and lasts until the age of six. The major roles of children’s primary teeth are to help them learn to chew and speak. They also serve as a placeholder for the second set of teeth, the permanent teeth, that will be used for the rest of their lives.

One of the many distinctions between primary and permanent teeth is the number of teeth. Primary teeth have only 20 while permanent teeth have increased to 32. The difference in number came from children’s jaws being shorter than one in the adult and cannot accommodate another 8 additional molars in the back. Primary teeth also have much thinner and shorter roots, making them easier to dissolve and allowing permanent teeth to grow. Primary teeth are also whiter with thicker enamel than permanent teeth, which can appear more yellowish than primary teeth.

What did dentists do for pediatric dental care?

From birth to the age of twelve, children’s dental care necessitates special attention in a few areas. First, they have two sets of teeth, primary and permanent, which must be inspected on a regular basis. Primary teeth that are lost or extracted too soon may not leave enough room for permanent teeth, resulting in the misalignment of permanent teeth.

Second, children are more likely than adults to suffer from tooth decay and other dental injuries. Many children participate in falls, fights, and sports activities that can result in dental injuries. Mishandling of tooth decay and other dental injuries can result in lifetime pain, complications, and even permanent tooth loss. Tooth decay in children can also lead to serious infectious diseases that are preventable.

In order to maintain good oral health throughout their lives, children must also learn about good dental hygiene. They should also be familiar with dentist visits; making them comfortable and cooperative with the dentist will ensure a good dental care routine, including dental check-ups twice a year. 

In this case, pediatric dentistry are providing comprehensive oral care, which includes

  • Oral health examination for infants and children
  • Preventive dental care including cleaning and fluoride treatment
  • Repair of tooth cavities and defects
  • Management of gum diseases and other conditions
  • Treatment for dental injuries, including fractured, displaced, and knocked-out teeth
  • Diagnosis of oral conditions associated with diseases such as diabetes​, congenital heart defect, asthma, hay fever and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD​)
  • Orthodontics evaluation and treatment for straightening teeth and correcting an improper bite 
  • Habit counseling, including pacifier use and thumb sucking
  • Education on dental care, including oral hygiene and importance of check-ups

All of these services must be provided by a pediatric dentist who is knowledgeable about children’s dental issues and is trained to examine and treat children in a way that makes them feel at ease. A pediatric dentist’s proper care, particularly their first dental check-ups, will help take the fear out of dental visits right from the start and provide a systematic care to children’s teeth.
