In both adults and children, one of the most common problems in the oral cavity is tooth decay.
Pediatric dentistry takes care of the health of deciduous teeth in children because their damage can harm permanent ones.
An essential part of pediatric dentistry is the proper care in the early stages of developing deciduous teeth and creating a positive attitude towards dental visits.
Healthy and white teeth in childhood are of great importance because damage to deciduous teeth can damage permanent ones, so dentists recommend good oral hygiene in children.
Proper dental habits lay the foundation for good oral and dental health in the future.
Children from birth to adolescence require special attention to the development of teeth and gums. Early identification of potential problems and applying preventive measures, complications, and more severe treatment of teeth at a later stage can be prevented or avoided.
We advise you to encourage your child to visit a pediatric dentist regularly for preventive examinations - so he will be more receptive to dental treatment.
Our team of specialists offers preventive and prophylactic services, monitoring the development and growth of children's teeth, which allows the prevention of major problems before they occur.
At the earliest age, from 1 to 3 years, many children develop so—early childhood tooth decay, which can cause serious complications. What is unique about this caries is that it proliferates, often immediately after the eruption of deciduous teeth, and can cover more teeth at once. It affects the upper front teeth, which are poorly protected from saliva.
The dentist should explain to the parents as early as possible how to protect the child from such tooth decay. As early as possible, children should be taught to drink liquids from a glass, not from a pacifier bottle. Under no circumstances should the child fall asleep with the feeding bottle unless it contains only water. The reason is that the carbohydrates in sweet juices decompose to acid, which destroys teeth all night. At this time of day, the salivation that protects the teeth decreases. Sweet juices and foods should be consumed at longer intervals so that their acidic action is not constant.
A healthy smile contributes to the healthy self-esteem of every child!
