What is paediatric dentistry?

Paediatric dentistry is the area of ​​dentistry that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment of dental-related illnesses and medical conditions. It can also be summed up as the dental care of young children from birth right up until adolescence. It is one of the seven recognised clinical dentistry specialties. 

How important is it to acquire good oral hygiene habits from childhood?

Acquiring good oral hygiene habits from childhood reduces your child's chances of suffering from cavities, gingivitis, or periodontitis

Why is it so important to control children's oral health?

Controlling the oral health of children is vitally important, due to the fact that the mouth plays a critical role when it comes to nutrition, phonetics and aesthetics.

What are the most common oral hygiene-related conditions that children suffer from?

In children, the most common problems are caries and malocclusion of the teeth

What are the biggest challenges of paediatric dentistry?

Negative, and in some cases, traumatic dental therapy experiences can, of course, leave a profound mark on any child, and can, unfortunately, affect them later on in life. Therefore, it is essential that dentists specialising in paediatric dentistry bear that in mind. This is undoubtedly the biggest challenge that paediatric dentists face, as it is crucial that these young children do not suffer from a painful, traumatic dental experience.
