Paediatric Dentistry

Specific treatment for children up to the age of 12, with parental guidance provided since conception.

Paediatric dentistry is a branch of dentistry that cares for the oral health of children. Today, we know that the fear people have of facing the dentist’s chair is due to negative experiences they had when they were children. This is the reason why the work of paediatric dentists is so important.

They are the ones responsible for the hygiene not only of children who already have their teeth, but also for the babies and pregnant mothers. Therefore, mothers should seek out these professionals while still pregnant with time remaining before the birth, in order to get information about the steps they should take from the moment of birth.

Treatment for children also requires special care. Little ones need more attention to prevent visiting the dentist from becoming torture. The environment should also be attractive, helping the child to feel confident and relaxed.

It is important that parents speak with their paediatric dentist about any bad experience that their child has had, in order for the professional to know how to help the child and deal with the fear in order for the treatment to proceed as smoothly as possible.
