Children’s Dentistry – Pedodontics

Children should visit the dentist every 6 months.

In order to avoid the fear of dentists in children, they should be allowed to meet dentists from a very young age. Dentophobia (fear of dentists) will not occur in children who come to the dentist regularly from the moment of birth.

Although there are various speculations about fluorine, it is seen that fluorine is very useful based on evidence-based science.

Permanent teeth are very sensitive to cavities when they first rubbe. Two and a half to three years after permanent teeth are rubbed, they complete their enarilization. At this stage, it is very important to give protective treatments to the teeth as they are sensitive to acid attacks.

Why Are Milk Teeth Important?

In addition to its tasks such as function, phonation and aesthetics, milk teeth also help to properly sort the permanent teeth and ensure that jaw development is in optimal conditions by providing sliding guidance for permanent teeth from the bottom.

In children who lose their milk teeth early, permanent teeth will return and continue diagonally because they have lost the guidance to drive. These can cause problems of intricacy in permanent teething and even growth problems in the jaw. Therefore, it is very important that the milk teeth are present in the mouth until the time of physiological fall.
