Pediatric dentistry deals with teeth and oral condition of children. Pediatric Dentistry is an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs. Pediatric dentistry is a specialty based not on a particular skill set, but encompassing all of the dentistry's technical skills against a philosophical background of understanding child development in health and disease.
Pediatric dentists help in diagnosing oral diseases, promoting oral health, monitoring oral health through growth and development of the teeth and jaws, performing surgical procedures on the oral cavity in extreme cases, restoring decaying teeth, and fixing dental injuries.
