PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY

 

 

 


WHAT IS PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY?

Pediatric dentistry is a branch of dentistry which is an “age defined specialty”

It includes dental care for children under the age of 18 yrs…. for  which a Pediatric Dentist undergoes additional 2-3 years of dental  training which prepares them to meet the needs of an infant, child or adolescent…including those with special health care needs…

“Children are not just miniature adults”

Hence.. one of the main components of pediatric training is “child psychology”. This includes developing trust within the child gaining his confidence through the medium of a friendly environment, friendly communication style and also developing a positive dental attitude as well as making the dental visits enjoyable!!

Pediatric Dentists mainly work towards maintenance of healthy baby teeth till they are lost naturally!!! Good baby teeth or milk teeth as they are commonly known as .. are required for proper chewing, speech, good nutrition and finally to obtain healthy and well aligned permanent or new set of teeth…..

It is not only the duty but also the moral responsibility of a pediatric dentist, to see to it that the rate of tooth decay is maintained to as low as possible.. as poor oral health leads to poor overall general health.. which leads to further absence in school !!! for this they give advice on how to make teeth strong, parent education on healthy eating habits, advice on preventing injuries to the teeth and oral structures and finally preventive measures like brushing,flossing and use of fluorides..
