Pedodontics is the dental specialty that deals with the care of children’s teeth. The pedodontist is extensively concerned with prevention, which includes instruction in proper diet, use of fluoride, and practice of oral hygiene. This super specialisation includes preventing and dealing with caries (tooth decay) as well as influencing tooth alignment. Lengthy treatment may be required to correct incipient abnormalities in teeth positions. Braces or other correctional devices may be used. The pedodontist needs patience and a basic knowledge of children’s behavioral patterns, as well as a knowledge of the effects on the mouth of physical and mental diseases.
We take pride in our team of specialists who deal with problems in children and adolescents in a gentle, happy, calm and confortable manner.
