How Is Pediatric Dentistry Different From Our Types Of Care

Pediatric dentistry is quite different from other types of dental care we provide to adults. At Brian Homann, DDS we customize our services to meet the unique needs of each age group. Here’s how pediatric dentistry compares to our adult dental services:

  • Tooth Development: For kids, dental care focuses on the growth of their baby teeth, which are important for chewing and talking properly, and for making sure their adult teeth come in healthy. Adults, on the other hand, need care that keeps their permanent teeth healthy and deals with any issues that come with aging.
  • Gum and Bone Health: Kids’ gums and bones are still growing, which makes them more likely to get conditions like gingivitis. Pediatric dental care tries to stop these problems early on. Adult dental care, though, may involve treating long-term effects of wear and tear and more serious conditions like periodontitis, which kids rarely face.
  • Dental Restoration: When kids need dental restoration, it usually involves treating cavities in baby teeth and making sure there is enough space for their adult teeth to come in correctly. For adults, restorative work is more complex and can include things like fillings, crowns, bridges, and implants to fix various dental problems.
  • Preventive Care and Education: Preventive care is key for all ages, but the approach changes. With kids, we focus on teaching them and their parents good brushing and flossing habits to build strong oral hygiene routines for life. For adults, we emphasize preventing tooth decay and gum disease and stress the importance of getting regular dental check-ups and cleanings.
  • Treatment Adaptation: Treatments for kids are made to be comfortable and simple to keep them calm and cooperative during visits. Adult treatments might be longer and involve more advanced technology and methods, due to the broader range of dental issues adults face.

By focusing on these differences, Brian Homann, DDS makes sure kids get the right care for their developing teeth, while adult services focus on maintaining and restoring oral health as well as enhancing the appearance of their smiles.

Providing dental care for the whole family means that both kids and adults at our practice will receive preventive strategies and excellent dental treatments that fit their needs.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
