CHILDREN DENTISTRY (PEDODONTICS)
It is a branch of science that examines and provides solutions to problems related to oral and dental health from birth to the end of adolescence.
The dental system goes through many periods in the process from eruption of milk teeth to permanent dentition in children.
During these periods, follow-up and prevention of tooth eruption disorders, application of preventive methods to decay teeth and permanent teeth, treatment of decays of deciduous teeth and permanent teeth, preservation of toothless cavities that may occur as a result of early extractions by making appliances to prevent tooth row in the future, even application of child prostheses to children born without teeth It is a science that includes many applications.
In the Pedodontics department, Pedodontists (Pediatric Dentists) carry out full oral examinations and all kinds of treatment and preventive applications of all babies, children and young people by taking a psychological approach according to the physical and emotional development of the children.
According to the researches about the frequency of caries in recent years; It is observed that the frequency of caries in children reaches 90% both in the period of deciduous dentition (2-6 years old) and in the period of mixed dentition (7-12 years old). For this reason, it is of great importance to apply decay prevention methods in order to protect the child’s future oral and dental health, and most importantly, the general health. Child dentists protect children from dental caries, which significantly affects their oral and dental health as well as their general health, by performing these protective applications at the right time according to the child’s dental and age development.
For this reason, you will have your child’s first oral and dental examination from the age of 1, and you will be able to fully protect your child from dental caries by having oral and dental checks and care at intervals determined by your pediatric dentist (1 in 4-6 months). The time of the first dentist examination and the dentist who performed it are of great importance in order to prevent the development of “Fear of the Dentist!”, Which we encounter in many adults today.
