2. How is a pedodontist different from a dentist?
A pedodontist specializes in treating dental problems in children. Pedodontists are well trained to treat various issues related to children’s dental health.

A child should visit every six months, but depending on the child’s dental health more visits may be required.

Our mouth has a lot of bacteria. When these bacteria come into contact with sugary foods, acids are produced. The acids decay the enamel-producing holes or cavities on the teeth surfaces.
