Pediatric Dentistry

Young children can lose milk teeth and even immature permanent teeth when the living tissue inside the toothcalled the pulp, becomes infected. This can be due to trauma or dental caries (tooth decay) and can create problem for the child. The primary teeth provide important guide-lines for the newly developing permanent teeth that will replace them. And injury resulting in loss of young permanent teeth can be even more troublesome, because neither tooth development, nor jaw growth is complete.

The Pediatric dentist at JJ Dental Care offer a number of important services for your child. With so much on your plate as a parent, it’s easy to forget about your children’s teeth beyond daily brushing. However, your child’s dental health when young is vital for long term health. If teeth are lost prematurely, a malocclusion (abnormal bite) can easily result. This is where our specialists comes to your rescue!
