Bellflower Pedodontics - Children's Dentist

A pediatric dentist, or pedodontist in Bellflower is specially trained in all aspects of childhood growth and development. This training allows the doctor to have a better understanding of the dental needs of a growing child. The Bellflower pedodontist's job is to make a child's dental experience enjoyable and to promote good oral hygiene habits at an early age.


child-at-the-dentistThe American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that the first visit to the pediatric dentist should occur within 6 months following their first tooth eruption, but no later than 1 year of age.
Children need their teeth as much as adults do to chew and smile. If the teeth are allowed to become decayed, the child will suffer from pain, possible infection, and an inability to eat properly which leads to poor nutrition. Decayed teeth can also affect a child's social life and lead to teasing at school and play due to discoloration of the teeth and bad breath. Finally, if baby teeth are removed due to decay before the adult teeth arrive, shifting of the teeth with space loss will occur which may lead to serious crowding once the permanent teeth erupt.
