Pediatric Dentistry

The Snö Pediatric Dentistry team is always excited to welcome our youngest guests to our kid-friendly facilities. Our largest clinic in Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi features a special kids’ section designed to make the Snö experience as enjoyable and memorable as possible for our pediatric dentistry patients. Pediatric and orthodontic services at Snö are provided by a team of specialists with extensive pediatric experience. Our pediatric dentists and orthodontists are Western trained and Arabic/English bilinguals to ensure any concerns of kids (and parents) are understood right away and addressed immediately.

We practice gentle and pain-free pediatric dentistry so that children look forward to their regular dental appointments. Our dedicated Family Waiting Area boasts a PS4 gaming console that allows the children to race with their friends while they wait to see their favourite dentist.

Kids’ dentistry is about education and awareness. We highlight the importance of good oral healthcare habits and encourage daily preventative routines like brushing and flossing. We work and counsel parents on diet and behavioral tendencies that affect oral health in children.

FAQ

  • What should babies’ teeth be cleaned with?

    Starting good habits with your children while they are still young is a great start. Always use a toothbrush that is recommended by your dentist, usually it is a soft bristle brush specifically designed for young teeth and gums!

  • Can my child use toothpaste?

    You can start using fluoride toothpaste on the brush once your little one has a few teeth. But only use a small bit of toothpaste for each cleaning. Because children have a tendency for swallowing toothpaste, make sure you brush their teeth and watch as they rinse and spit it out.

    Use a little “smear” of fluoride toothpaste on youngsters aged 0 to 2 years old. Apply a pea-sized amount of toothpaste to youngsters aged 3 to 6. To get the most out of the fluoride, restrict the amount of water you use to rinse your child’s teeth.

  • When can children brush their own teeth without company?

    You must always brush your child’s teeth, or at least be present until he or she is ready to take responsibility, which is normally around the age of 7 or 8.

  • When is the first time a child should be taken to see a dentist?

    It is recommended to take your child to a pediatric dentist as soon as the first tooth appears to prevent future dental problems.

  • What is the difference between a pediatric dentist and a family dentist?

    Pediatric dentists are the dental equivalents of pediatricians. Following dental school, a pediatric dentist receives two to three years of specialty training and focuses solely on treating children. Pediatric dentists provide primary and specialist oral care to infants, children, and adolescents, including those with unique health requirements, from infancy to puberty.

  • Is it important to take care of baby teeth, why?

    Primary teeth, sometimes known as “baby teeth,” are crucial for a variety of reasons. They not only aid in the formation of a path for permanent teeth to follow when they are ready to erupt, but they also help children speak correctly and chew naturally.

  • How often should a child be taken to a pediatric dentist?

    To avoid cavities and other dental disorders, a check-up every six-months is recommended. However, depending on your child’s dental health, your pediatric dentist can advise you on when and how often they should attend.

  • What happens during the first visit to a pediatrician?

    The initial visit is usually brief and straightforward. In most cases, we concentrate on getting to know you and your child and provide you with basic dental information. We will examine your child’s teeth for position and health, as well as any potential gum and jaw concerns. Depending on how your little one feels on the day, and the age of the child, we may perform a clean and teach them how to properly brush their teeth and show them how to floss. We are also happy to answer any questions you may have during the visit.
