Pediatric Dentistry

What is Pedodontics?

Pediatric dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with the examination and management of children’s dental health.

Pediatric dentists specialize in the oral health of children from infancy through adolescence.

The Importance of Dental Care in Children

We know that nothing is more important than your child.

Regular care for children from an early age is very important in creating a great foundation for a lifetime of good oral hygiene and a healthy smile.

At Dent Solo Dental Polyclinic, we provide excellent dental care for the whole family, including babies and children.

Our team (our expert pedodontists) is experienced in dental care for babies and children and works devotedly to make these special patients feel comfortable during their examination and treatment.

Child Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry for children includes treatments to help protect their teeth from decay.

Popular options include fluoride treatment, a special material that helps strengthen teeth, and fissure sealant, which acts as a strong barrier between your child’s teeth and decay-causing bacteria.

Both treatments are safe treatment options for hard-to-reach back teeth.

How to Treat Primary Tooth Decay?

The pediatric dentist can repair cavities in baby teeth with fillings that prevent the infection from causing pain, spreading, and requiring the tooth to be extracted. Early extraction of baby teeth may prevent the child from speaking and eating.

What are the causes of tooth decay?

Bacteria cause tooth decay. Cavities occur when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) are left on the teeth. Such foods include milk, soda, raisins and bread. Bacteria that usually live in the mouth change these foods and create acid.

My Child Is Afraid of Going to the Dentist

Pediatric dentistry offers a different atmosphere compared to regular dental polyclinic. We have taken precautions to make our children’s dental polyclinic in Dentsolo fun and relaxing for our little patients. Therefore, you will often see toys and small gifts to keep children occupied. This will help our patients take some of their minds off the anxiety of visiting the dental polyclinic for the first time or receiving treatment.

Are Thumb Sucking and Pacifiers Harmful for My Child's Teeth?

Prolonged thumb sucking and pacifier use can prevent the development of children’s mouth roof and teeth alignment, causing teeth to protrude. The extent of damage can often vary depending on how aggressively the child sucks his thumb or pacifier.
