Pediatric Dentistry FAQ’s

Age range for pediatric dentistry

Pediatric dentists treat children from an age range of 6 months to the age when their final adult teeth come in, usually 12 or 13 years of age.

Your family dentist in Morrisville NC recommends that your child visit the dentist at least twice per year to be sure teeth are aligned correctly and that minor issues don’t get bigger.

Children can have a lot of anxiety before new experiences and especially ones that they may fear. Here are some things you can do to prepare to take your child to a dental appointment:

  • stay positive
  • play games
  • use positive reinforcement
  • read books or watch videos about dental visits
  • bring favorite toys to the appointment
