Dental Care for Children

It is always good for children to develop good oral care habits as soon as possible. Of course, it is the parents who should take the “first step” in this. Finding new ways to model good dental hygiene habits and practicing them with your children is essential. The sooner children take care of their teeth, the happier and healthier they will be for themselves (and you). And the payoffs of this over a lifetime are invaluable.

These are just a few reasons why it's a smart idea to get kids to learn the necessary dental habits right from the start.

Development of Milk Teeth

Parents can expect most of their milk teeth to have erupted until their child is about 30 months old. There are 20 milk teeth in total.

Instilling healthy eating habits in your child at an early age can limit the risk of cavities and tooth decay. Parents should not fill their children's bottles with sugar-containing drinks and should clean the pacifiers regularly. Children should drink milk and water during the day and only water at night.

Children's Dental Filling

Children's dental filling is the restoration of the natural shape of the tooth by filling the teeth that have lost material due to caries with various materials after the caries is cleaned. The purpose of this treatment is to stop the progression of the caries, to remove the sensitivity, to preserve the vitality of the tooth and to maintain the chewing and aesthetic function of the tooth. If the recommended treatment is not applied, the caries progresses, root canal treatment or tooth extraction may be necessary. If the dentist deems it necessary, local anesthesia can be applied in child dental filling.

Child Orthodontic Treatment

Do you want your children to have a healthy and beautiful smile for life? If your answer is yes, you should know that your children need regularly aligned teeth and a smooth jaw structure for a beautiful smile. Children's orthodontic treatment also comes into play at this stage, preventing orthodontic disorders that may occur in later ages and ensuring that the teeth get the health and aesthetic appearance they should be. Problems that arise in orthodontic controls for children at an early age are resolved with preventive treatments.

Dentist check-ups should start with the emergence of milk teeth and appropriate treatments should be determined for the detected problems. The controls of a pediatric orthodontist are required to eliminate habits seen at an early age such as thumb sucking, mouth breathing, long-term use of pacifiers, and the continuity of baby swallowing. Families should be conscious and consult their physicians when they notice dental or jaw problems in their children.
