How Are Dental Treatments For Children?
Treatments for children in Kids Dentistry (pediatric dentistry services) are similar to treatments for adults, however, there are some treatments designed exclusively for younger children. These exclusives, for the most part, are due to differences in dental training between a child and an adult.
When Is It Necessary For The Child To Go To The Dentist?
According to one estimate, the child should start going to the dentist between 6 months and 1 year because this age coincides, roughly, with the growth of the first teeth. From this moment, it will be good to have a first consultation of Kids Dentistry and then to make regular monitoring so that dental problems do not arise.
Whether it’s for a preventive exam, treatment or dental repair, your children will have a positive experience thanks to our approach. In addition, our team will take care to teach them the proper brushing and flossing techniques to prevent cavities.
What Points Are Checked During Pediatric Consultations?
Prevention: One of the main reasons a child should go to the dentist is to get proper prevention. Thanks to regular visits, the dentist can identify possible problems and thus prevent their aggravation.
Cavities: Another reason is the prevention and treatment of cavities. Frequent consumption of sugars, sugary drinks is enough for the appearance of cavities. Indeed, children are more sensitive to dental caries, so it is important to be careful and to remain vigilant.
Fluoride: Applying fluoride is another reason to take the child to the dentist. This fluoride is important because it will prevent the appearance of dental caries and protect tooth enamel.
Control Dental Plaque: Children need a lot of attention in order to prevent the development of cavities. One of the main reasons for a visit to the dentist is the cleaning of dental plaque due to the accumulation of food and a lack of strength when brushing teeth.
Guidance and Information: Another of the goals of dental appointments for children is education! It is important for young people during care, to explain oral hygiene procedures to them and to educate them in “good manners” for taking care of their teeth.
