Improve your child’s oral health by visiting a dentist that includes pediatric dentistry–a unique branch in the world of dentistry that focuses on children. Pediatric dentistry is designed to help your child’s oral health develop correctly.

Our dentist, Dr. Robert Rebert in Metairie, Louisiana, is happy to help you understand why pediatric dentistry can help your little ones. Here is a list of qualities and benefits we have to offer:

-Your child will not be able to brush and floss their own teeth until they are around the age of five or six. Until then, it is up to you to help them with their oral health care alongside their dentist.

-Pediatric dentistry focuses on more than just the smiles of infants. Pediatric dentistry can even be used for young children, teens, and even special needs patients.

-Several oral health risks in younger children including teething, baby bottle tooth decay, thumb sucking, pacifiers and tooth decay, which will require additional treatments from their pediatric dentist.

-Pediatric dentists are trained to convert adult procedures such as dental sealants into a usable form for children.

If you need to bring your child in for a dental checkup, or if you have questions about your child’s oral health, please call us today at 504-885-7510 to make an appointment. Our dental team at the practice of Robert Rebert, Jr., DDS is happy to help you and provide assistance when it comes to your child’s oral health.
