Pediatric Dentistry (Pedodontics)
Pediatric dental procedures are of great importance in order to closely monitor the development of dental health of children and to improve their oral health from the time when milk teeth begin to show up to the emergence of permanent teeth.
Milk teeth may be damaged more easily and decay faster due to the high amount of organic compounds they contain. The premature dysfunction of the milk teeth in childhood may cause problems in the sequence of teeth in the upcoming period. Here the main purpose of pediatric dental treatments is also to instill dental health awareness, to perform routine controls and to reduce the possibilities of children having problems with oral and dental health in the coming years.
We, as Denta Clinic, prepare predictive treatment plans in order to improve the oral and dental health of our children. We follow closely the jaw and teeth development of the children, analyze the conditions of their milk teeth with routine examinations and take preventive measures to protect their chewing and speech functions. We make healthy tomorrows possible by carrying out the treatments of our children that require special interest in our clinic.
Importance of Regular Controls in Pediatric Dentistry
Early diagnosis enables the implementation of early treatment processes. It is of great importance to perform regular controls every 6 months in order to be able to diagnose changes that may put the oral and dental health of the children on the line at early stage. Regular controls may also provide the awareness about the oral and dental health of the children as well as the elimination and prevention of risks.
