The difference between adult and pediatric dentistry relates to the training, equipment, and experience that we have. However, while we do have specific training that helps us treat children, it is additional training that we received after completing traditional dental training. Therefore, it’s an easy transition for us to use our skills for adult dentistry.
In terms of equipment, pediatric dentists use tools specifically designed to treat children. At Snodgrass and King, we have access to dental equipment designed for children and adults. And finally, we have experience treating both adults and children.
Essentially, cosmetic dentistry refers to a dental procedure used to improve the appearance of the patient’s teeth. These treatments focus on aesthetic over functional results. In contrast, general dentistry focuses more on the overall oral health of the patient.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments include braces, dental implants, and teeth whitening. Simple cosmetic procedures can be performed by certified general dentists, but more complex cosmetic treatments require more training.
