Pediatric dentistry is a branch of dentistry that takes care of the health of children’s mouth and teeth and works to fix dental problems at an early age and solve them before they become permanent problems. It causes permanent tooth decay
It is considered appropriate to bring your children to the dentist every 3 months to get regular care and to identify any problems at an early age and solve them before increasing them, otherwise you may be late for situations that may require early treatment. The Department of Pediatric Dentistry deals with the age group 0-14.
What does pediatric dentistry include?
Covers conditions such as root canal treatment, tooth extraction, fluoride to protect teeth, controls teeth and gums, and baby bottle decay.
To protect children’s oral and dental health, they should be kept away from chips, chocolate and acidic drinks. Most people don’t care much about this situation.
Pediatric dentistry prioritizes the mental and emotional health of children during treatment. We recommend that individuals pay attention to intimidating children with needles and facing similar situations, as this is never true and causes psychological problems and fear of the dentist that remains with the child even after he reaches puberty. We do not want the teeth to be a nightmare for children.
The correct way of brushing the teeth is also very important for the health of your children. Brushing teeth properly removes trapped bacteria, and stains on the front teeth of children cause tooth decay. Bringing your child to a regular dentist every 3 or 6 months will eliminate this situation.
Studies show that the rate of caries is up to 90% in children.
Fruit juices, which you think are good for children, cause tooth decay when filled in a bottle and given constantly.
Your visit to the dentist should be before the severe pain and this ensures an easier treatment for the child as well as for the dentist. Oral care in children is very important. Cleaning should begin as soon as the first teeth appear in the mouth.
You can brush your child’s teeth after breakfast using a clean piece of cloth or cotton, and you can start using a toothbrush when the back teeth begin to form.
Despite the importance of tooth brushing techniques, the most important thing is for your children to have the habit of brushing their teeth. Children prefer to brush for a very short time, and they usually only brush the front visible teeth for this reason, it is essential that the parents help the child to brush his teeth so that he begins to brush his teeth properly.
We would like to mention that the first process of diagnosing and treating your child is a very important process for you, as dentistry is a branch of science that helps children in the age group 0-14 to properly carry out the necessary treatments as they grow.
