Pediatric dentistry ( pedodontics ) is a dental specialty that deals with the care of children’s teeth. It’s not only diagnosis and treatment , but above all prevention of dental problems.
It is important to know that the proper care of the children’s milk teeth is reflected in development and condition of their permanent teeth. A dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child’s first birthday. Regular dental visits help to establish a comprehensive ongoing relationship between the dentist and a young patient.
Milk teeth are affected by caries, just like the adult’s permanent teeth, that’s why its very important to treat it in the same way. Negligence and lack of proper treatment of milk teeth leads to their loss which is a bad experience for young patients.
