Paediatric dentistry

Depending on the diet, caries can occur in children, rapidly progressing to nerve necrosis and then dental abscess. Neglected cavities in children lead to the loss of temporary teeth and affect the eruption of permanent teeth. Teaching young children how to care for their teeth and how important healthy teeth are is very important.

Conditions related to the temporary dentition or baby teeth

Depending on dietary habits, children can develop cavities that progress rapidly, leading to nerve damage and eventual dental abscesses.

Untreated cavities in children may result in the premature loss of baby teeth and can impact the eruption of permanent teeth. Therefore, it is crucial to educate young children on proper dental care practices and the significance of maintaining healthy teeth. A skilled pediatric dentist not only focuses on preventing and treating dental conditions but also plays a vital role in promoting dental hygiene awareness.

Temporary teeth trauma

Between the ages of 8 and 11, the most frequent incidents of play-related falls happen, often resulting in trauma, particularly to the front teeth. If your child experiences such an accident, it's essential to promptly schedule a visit to a pediatric dentist at the Ogodent Ploiesti dental clinic.

Bottle tooth decay

Bottle tooth decay is a form of dental decay commonly observed in bottle-fed infants who heavily rely on pacifiers. As your baby begins to transition to solid foods, their dentist advises discontinuing bottle use. However, if bottle caries has already developed, it's crucial to seek immediate treatment at the Ogodent Ploiesti dental clinic to prevent further deterioration.

Dental Sealants

A pediatric dentist helps prevent tooth decay in children's permanent teeth by applying sealants to deep grooves. The six-year molars are particularly significant as they remain in the dental arch for life, making them highly susceptible to cavities. Consequently, they necessitate diligent care, including parental oversight of brushing and the child's diet, as well as potential sealant applications performed by a pediatric dentist.
