Pediatric Dentistry (Pedodontics)


DentGroup Kids -Dental Clinic for Children
With the treatments applied by pedodontists,
meaning pediatric dentists, it is possible to have
a life without decayed teeth. Things are much
easier to progress in children. We apply protective
and preventive dental treatments in order to make
our children become conscious about oral and
dental health and we to enable them to have a life
without any decayed teeth.


When should I have my baby's first dental
examination?

World Health Organisation-WHO and American
Pediatric Dentistry Association recommends for
first dental examination to be made when the first
tooth has appeared. (generally between 6 months-1
year).


Isn't it too early to take my child to dentist at the
age of 1?

Primary task of pediatric dentists is to protect your
children from decayed teeth. The purpose in
realizing this examination at an early age is to
show you what to do to avoid your baby's teeth to
get decayed and to control his dental health by
calling you to come for controls at certain intervals.


What are the things to pay attention to before
coming for first dental examination of our child?


The things not to be done before the examination
are more important than those to be done.

  • Before treatment don't use words like
'Don't be afraid. It won't hurt' to your
child. These statements cause children to
have the idea that they can have pain in
their subconscious minds.
  •   Don't reward your child with a gift after
dental appointment. This would cause your
child to believe that the process is a
difficult one.
  • Child and dentist decide on what to be done on
the first appointment.
  •  It would be better if you don't tell to your
child about your good and bad experiences
with previous dentists.
  • Don't say frightening sentences to your
child that if he does not go to doctor, his
teeth with get more decayed and that they
will need to be extracted after needle
injection will be applied to him. Because
all these processes can be required to be
applied to your child one day.
  •   Don't give promises to your child that
dentist will only look at his teeth. Let your
child and dentist decide on what to be done
on the first appointment.

What are things that can be done on the first dental
visit?


On the first dental examination pediatric dentist
aims to examine all the teeth of children by using
amirror or light and to share the problems and
treatment alternatives with the parents.Mothers
and fathers are informed about nutrition and
protective applications as being the most important
topics. . During the first appointment, pedodontists
make your child get used to the dentist by using
games and methods that don't hurt. This approach
of pedodontists help to avoid dentist phobia to
develop.


What should I do when I bring my child for
therapy sessions?


We especially prefer you to bring your child to the
appointments as mother and father.Bring your
child to treatment appointment as fully fed unless
it is told otherwise.Children who get their dental
treatment very harmoniously, can get very
discordant when they get tired or bored. This
situation can influence the following appointments
negatively too . For this reason do not insist on
your children and your doctor to realize more
processes.While your child is getting treatment,
don't ask him questions like "Does it ache?" or
"Are you tired?" which could have a negative
impact on his motivation.
